Was able to learn new things that will help me with my future
Laborer (Former Employee), New York, New YorkJune 9, 2013
Pros: always busy and learning new things
Cons: only had one break and my last supervisor didnt know how to talk to people
typical day at work was to keep the job site clean as well as doing projects when my supervisor needed me to for example using a chipping gun to remove all the plaster from a whole room. Ive learned to use all sorts of electrical an non-electrical tools, Ive learned to do some sheet rocking, learned to do some frame work.The two supervisors I had were – more... great they enjoyed having me work for them. I most of the times had to finish my co-workers work because he was to busy talking or drinking coffee. The hardest part of the job was all the psychical labor throughout the day. The most enjoable part of the job was keeping busy all day. – less

Assistant Manager
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Germantown, NYMarch 7, 2013
Pros: benefits, great training and co-workers
I overseen 21 workers in a research facility. I learned all required tasks to advance in my position. I started out as just a technician and worked my way up to assistant manager. My manger was always willing to help me advance by offering great assistance and training. My co-workers and employees were helpful, respectful and hard working. The hardest – more... part was leaving to relocate to NC. The best part was having the ability to advance my career with the same company and making great life long friends with my co-workers and employees. – less

fast pase pruduction
shipper, machine opperator and specialty (Former Employee), Petersburg, NYJuly 20, 2012
Pros: good benefits, quarterly bonus if production was up
Cons: production workers didn't have a paid lunch and need benefits to better fit workers
Basic tasks are consistent day to day but different orders help to make it more interesting. Mostly a friendly work place, hard to get along with some of the management. Several managers worried about other areas more than their own. Fixing to many things that were not broken. Managers wanted overtime to be done before regular shift hours. Need to pay – more... close attention to details when maintaining orders and make sure its completed before packaging. Be careful to not clock in to early. – less
