Sewing Machine Operator/production work (Former Employee), Greenville, KY – August 18, 2013
Pros: it was my first job it was nice to have my own money and i learned how the real world worked
Cons: it was a production job and i had a hard time meeting the production time at first
I was nice meeting new people. I was right out of High School heading into the "real" world . I wasn't expecting it to be so hard to adjust. It was great making my own money and being able to buy things I wanted on my own. The co-workers were so nice and helpful . The management was very considerate because I was new and not quit making the production – more... level they like but gave me the chance to improve and I did but the company ended up selling out to a new buyer who laid off the newer employees and I happened to be one of those employees – less

Landscaper/laborer (Current Employee), Warwick, NY – October 20, 2014
Pros: free lunch, flexibiltiy
Cons: would like to have a higher pay
Working Mon - Fri and sometimes weekends usually starting around 8:00 or 9:00 am and working till about 5:00 or 6:00 pm sometimes later sometimes earlier depending on the jobs we're doing. I worked side by side with my boss a lot so there was much to learn but he always felt comfortable leaving me at a job to finish by myself. We cut down trees, chip – more... them and take them away. There seems to be a lot of money in the tree business and i enjoy the hard work, time goes a lot faster. We have sealed many driveways and even installed a couple driveways. We have done countless mulch jobs. We install small ponds and also have built a lot of natural stone walls and a variety of other jobs. My favorite part of the job is seeing the finished product that you worked your butt off to get done, especially knowing the job is done the right way. The hardest part of the job would be the slower jobs that aren't labor intensive because then time drags and i enjoy working hard. – less
