Learned a lot in a professional work environment
Project Engineer/CAD Manager (Former Employee) – Niagara Falls, NY – December 7, 2016
My input and opinion was respected and understood from the first day on the job. I learned a lot about the industry and was given a lot of autonomy to do what I had to do to get results.
Once a routine of work activity started I became efficient and proactive with my responsibilities.
I learned about site surveying and incorporating survey data such as spot elevations, control points, area and depth of excavation and how to calculate volume of removed material. Using survey information I was able to prepare site restoration plans which include site drainage, new concrete, asphalt, and vegetation areas.
Co-workers were for the most part respectful and helpful.
Hardest part of the job was the learning curve in the beginning.
I enjoyed working four ten hour days and having a three day weekend for most of the year.
4 day work weeks 9 mos out of the year
Communication was at times not followed through
