FINANCE PROJECT MANAGER (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – October 30, 2017
My typical day starts at 7:30 am an I usually wall out the door at 5pm. I juggle several different jobs at a time and it can be stressful keeping up with everything. Every day give your best and do your best. I never wonder if I gave it my all I know I did.
Each day I learn to keep fighting and not to take it personal. I have had several different managers and untimely worked well with all. You learn to adjust yourself to people. I wouldn't say it's a hard job but it can be stressful dealing with so many projects at a time.
The most enjoyable part of my job is working with the public. The Forest Preserves are beautiful and well maintained.
Loving nature and how it's beeing preserved
Some people are over utilized while others are under utilized

A fun way to spend time and help nature. Light-duty jobs available and labor intensive jobs - something for everyone! Wonderful people with massive amounts of knowledge. It's like a family or close community - everyone cares about each other.
