Over the road construction job.
Civil Technician (Former Employee) – Wanamingo, MN – December 10, 2013
Job sites on average took about two weeks. We excavated, set up footings and slabs for concrete pouring, ran conduit, back-filled and soil compacted, welded and completed site with landscaping duties. I had prior experience with concrete work, but all other job duties where new to me. Management was good, but lacked communication at times. I felt out of the loop. My co-workers were great to work with. The hardest part was not having a consistent schedule. It made it difficult to plan things outside of work. The most enjoyable part was the comradery and seeing the rural mid-west.
Co-workers, being outside and learing new skills.
Inconsistent hours and work/life balance.
