My job duties at Mississippi State (field worker)
Intermittent Worker (Former Employee) – Stoneville, MS – May 6, 2018
I usually worked out in the fields in Stoneville, MS from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm. I spent my time chopping weeds, spraying pesticides or herbicides on crops, worked on pieces of farm equipment in need of repair, irrigated crops and or prepared for crops irrigation, etc.. I learned a lot on how to irrigate crops and the stages of planting. The culture was very unique in that DREC is the largest agricultural research center in the U.S.. There were no hard parts of the job, other than when the heat reached very high temperatures of 100+ degrees with heat index in the open fields. The most enjoyable part of the job was learning to operate new pieces of farm equipment that once had seemed very foreign to me.
