Hard work, but working with great people made it worth while.
Journeyman Electrician (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABJune 2, 2015
I'm very well rounded in the field. I typically was doing rough in's because I requested it. I'd rather be wiring houses as to doing finals. I am a team player and if the company was falling behind elsewhere I'd volunteer.

Great People and Treated Great
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Regina, SKJune 7, 2013
Pros: great people and perks
Cons: very little work load
A typical day at work included data entry, assisting where needing and covering reception (once a week). I worked with some very nice people, who made everyday fun. The hardest part of my job was the fact that I didn't have much work to do, my work was project based but my manager didn't always get me a project to do right away. The most enjoyable was the community of people there, the company treated everyone well, including fishing trips, golfing days, bbqs and other team building activities.

The first year at Bayer I was in a different department where I was busier, it included maintaining customer data bases where it be updating information, adding a new customer or deleting a customer. I set up pricing for products, as well as tracked reports and assisted the Customer Service Reps with projects.
