Pros: Good pay and benefits, ability to move up in the workplace
Cons: The long drive there and back worsened with increase in population
Looked forward to work each day, starting sometimes with coffee and bagels. Office work, started with checking emails, entering and updating computer data, answering the telephone, checking mail and general office duties.
I learned to use software designed specifically for the input of overtime hours and shift premiums worked by the Air Traffic Controllers so they were paid by Head Office in Ottawa.
Management and co-workers were helpful, encouraging and fun.
The job required me driving from Langley to Richmond through the Iron Massey Tunnel or over the Alex Fraser Bridge. At times traffic congestion or accidents made it hard to be punctual.
Finding out how Air Traffic is managed, I found very educational and interesting.
