Pros: Rendering illustrions, My boss treats us for lunch by bring in lunches and/or ordering lunches, bonuses
Cons: No health insurance for me, low pay, need a better career challenge
* A typical day at work is when I am working on an assignment that
my boss either leaves for me or explains for me to do the day
before, running errands for the office such as: bank and mail runs,
not to forget, I do answer phones and take messages.
* Occasionally, I assist the office manager with office duties by
filling records, check stubs, and straightening out the house files.
* Producing new PDF files, scanning in new drawings for files, and
sending out attached e-mails.
* Sometimes, my boss would have me to type up a proposal letter or
other letters when the office manager is very busy with other
* Occasionally, we would do inner-office cleaning
Management: The home construction company where I am an
employee is being run by two men - Owner/principal
and co-owner. I usually report to the principal/owner.
The principal' daughter is the office manager.
My Co-Workers: Office Manager, and two contractors. There used
used to be more people in the office until August
2008 when there was a massive lay-off (myself,
included), I was rehired in November 2011.
* There are so many things that I have learned on the job: Such as
improving my office etiquette, learning more and new skills/steps – more... on the Auto-CAD system, converting files, and working on contract
* The hardest part of the job is knowing how and when to stay calm
or when to speak up whenever I am under pressure - especially
when my boss goes into one of his ballistic moments. It is a real
blessing that I am still working there when I have been on the brink
of being let go...
There are actually two most enjoyable parts of the job are when my boss will have me to start on a new project and also doing a coloring rendering of an elevation for clients who are having their houses being built by our company. – less
