Acting Accountant (Former Employee), Ottawa – July 28, 2014
A typical day would be processing any invoices that come in, filling, journal entries, preparing payroll every two weeks, WSIB remittance, accruals, Banking for 300+ card holders across Canada. The hardest part of the job would have been the first two payroll runs as payroll was for employees across Canada, it was a learning experience. The most enjoyable – more... part of the job was the vast amount of learning and exposure to a variety of different professional job duties that I had never experienced before working at private companies. – less
Easily one of the most rewarding experiences of my life
Volunteer Worker for Underprivileged Children (Former Employee), Fortaleza, CE – October 9, 2014
Each day I'd take the bus to the favelas (slums) of Fortaleza, BR, and each day I'd learn infinitely more than I ever taught. Seeing that people with nothing could be so loving and grateful shocked me into appreciating the things I'd originally taken for granted. Seeing kids who lost their parents to violence and drug addition gave me a means of viewing – more... an alternate reality of the world that I would've never gotten on my own. – less

NPO President/Founder (Former Employee), Junction City, KS – June 25, 2014
A typical day: Planning and scheduling was done at the beginning of the month and then a few days in between of adjustments. I would monitor our social media, sometimes design graphics for flyers or promotional materials. Making phone calls or answering e-mails from the sponsors and other organizations like mine.
What I learned: I managed every aspect – more... of that organization and I've dealt with everything from defusing anger to banking issues- the greatest lessons come in threes. First: Always think before you speak, Second, Lead as you want followed (never ask anyone to do something that you wouldn't do) and Third, Sleep on every big decision.
Management: I was my own boss, sometimes management was lenient and sometimes management was terrible. Working for myself taught me how to balance my time wisely.
Co-Workers: We were all roller derby girls. Skaters are joined like a sisterhood, so we had our highs and lows like any other family, but that's what we were/are: a family.
Hardest part of the job: Defining when it was time for me to take off the "boss" hat and just be done for the day.
Most enjoyable part of the job: Watching each individual grow as skaters, individuals, and as leaders in the community. – less

Call Center Client Specialist (Former Employee), Whippany, NJ – October 28, 2013
Pros: trying to help people
Cons: no benefits, unfair wages to employees
A typical day at work was 50 to 60 calls per day, I learned how not to treat employees who gives their 110%. Management were deceiving to their employees and clients. My co-workers were the best group of people to work with. The hardest part of my job was deceiving people by giving them information/referrals pertaining to financial funding that they – more... knew wasn't available just to have a call volume. The enjoyable part of my job was to encourage people to be strong and to hold on even through the tough times, and not to give up on life to those whom wanted to commit suicide. Being able to talk someone out of committing suicide and make the decision not to give up on life was most REWARDING for me. That was the only thing that made this job worth me going in everyday. – less
