Accountant/Document Control Clerk (Former Employee), Hermiston, ORMarch 12, 2014
Pros: money
Cons: project ending
I worked on limited duration project, so it had an ending date. Due to the nature of this project I am unable to detail the actual work. A typical day at work was that something would always arise needing resolution. My team would work together to resolve any situation, real teamwork. I had two immediate managers and both were wonderful at aiding in – more... my success and would actually help resolve any issues. The hardest part of the job was leaving on my release date. The most enjoyable part was the diversity of things I learned, and the team I worked with. – less
