Crane Operator (Current Employee) –  Peterborough, ONJanuary 13, 2014
GE has been very good to me. A typical day at work would be organizing our crane lifts with the other trades people, performing lifts throughout day and also dipping and curing of very large electric motors. I've learnes to read engineering drawings, perform two crane lifts, the use of all sorts of power tools, maintaing VPI equipment (checking fluid levels, temperature levels). Co-workers are great.
Pros
great team atmosphere
Cons
not enough work hours for me

Fulfilling position with great benefits
Site Leader - Portofolio Manager, GE (Former Employee) –  Montreal, QuebecJune 4, 2013
Very motivating environment with a great team.

A typical day would include a customer interview over a credit review or address of concern; training of staff on some new procedure; strategic operations meeting with colleagues and VP.

The most rewarding thing about being a manager is seeing the progress of an employee thanks to my coaching and perseverance, and seeing the team achieve the quarterly sales objective.
Receiving a customer compliment and thank you letter is always appreciated.

Having colleagues to convene with is a great support thing, especially in times of short staff or technical difficulties of system.
The most enjoyable part of this job was being multitasked: managing, servicing and training.

The hardest part of the job was the fact that it was abolished.
Pros
great benefits and self realization
Cons
some travelling for training

Accounts Receivable (A/R) Associate (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, ABMay 1, 2013
It was a very fun place to work at. It does have a lot of work during the month and quarter ends but it helps your day go by fast and do not realize when its home time already. People working there are really friendly and helpful. It gave me a good opportunity to learn in my related field.
Pros
free lunches during quarter ends and month ends
Cons
long hours due to the month and quarter ends

Fleet Administration Job (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ONSeptember 14, 2012
Processed all day to day tasks on violation
