Day at my workplace
IT Consultant (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ONApril 18, 2016
My day would start by greeting my fellow workers and followed by task assigned to me and completion. Hard work pays, management is very helpful but demanding, co-workers are really very helpful. Hardest part was offshore call late at night but later enjoyed it the most.
