Hotel Guest Service Agent (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – May 19, 2018
Performing a routine support to customers was very exciting. My experience working with teammates across departments was a success and rewarding. Everyone supported each other for the common goals of each day. Coming to work everyday and providing excellence to internal and external customers was something I enjoyed doing during my service there.

Do you want a job that you enjoy with a relaxed work environment but lower wages? Then the WAC is for you. While I enjoy working at the WAC the cost of living in Seattle has gone way up, but unfortunately workers compensation has not.

Graphic Designer (Contract) (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – August 1, 2016
Nice teams that work together to get everything done in a last minute atmosphere. Small marketing team, but larger for an in-house team. We produce a bi-monthly 70+-page magazine that is the biggest and most consistent project that we work on.

Office Clerk / Mail Carrier (Current Employee) – Seattle, Washington – January 23, 2014
I deliver mail and work in the receiving department. I walk between 6 and 7 miles a day. The best part of my job is talking with the people I provide service for as I provide that service. The hardest part of my job is working in the receiving department. The people in receiving are really great people but this portion of the job is too physical for me / a lot of lifting, pulling, pushing etc. I have learned a lot about the packaging and paper work requirements for different types of mail: i.e. international mail and registered mail. Because our company is so diverse in its ethnicity, I have had the opportunity to learn how people from places other than the US view work and express their work ethic.
Free Lunch, A diverse group of people
Aside from management, most of the jobs involve a lot of physical labor
AM Line Cook (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – January 17, 2013
The Washington Athletic Club is an old Seattle institution that has a strong traditional culture. For the most part, everything is good. There really isn't anything anyone can complain about. The pay was great, averaged about 38-40 hrs a week. I was the opener for 5 of the 7 days and it required me to be there early and open the kitchen unsupervised. The next morning cook did not come for another hour. I would set up the line mainly for breakfast but keeping in mind the things I would need for the lunch menu. As the day goes on, during down time, any prep for lunch or the next day would get done during that time. Management overall were individuals of strong character. They took care of my well being as well as made sure to discipline me if I was out of line. I learned a lot about time management from them. I also learned that the kitchen is always a team effort. If I need help, be sure to ask for it before its too late. The hardest part about my job was the platonic relationship with my co-workers. I considered them both my co-workers as well as my peers and when my peers were not holding up their end of the work, it was difficult to tell or get them back to working. I would say I enjoyed the unionized working environment. It gave me a sense of security. As long as I was a good worker, they would make sure I was not taken advantage of.
