Office Help (Current Employee), New YorkJune 5, 2014
Pros: hours

If you are looking for a segment position . Here's the place to work ! Everyone is out for themselves, and the Human Resources department is on board with it ! They add on more responsibilities and the pay might as be minimum wage ...because your are not getting a raise no time soon ! Don't believe the hype with the good benefits that's where they will – more... get you ! People die looking to get promoted ..Get out while you can or you will get lock in the office b.s.

Intern-Lab Technician Assistant (Current Employee), Jackson, MSApril 5, 2014
A typical day at work includes running tests on samples, getting to interact and communicate with others, and being challenged by nature to ensure that the plant and the pumps run smoothly. I learned operations and compliance here. My coworkers are encouraging, funny, and supportive. The hardest part of the job is making sure to stay in compliance with – more... EPA and OSHA standards. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to interact with my coworkers. – less

pitiful place to work
Operator I (Current Employee), Los Angeles, CAJanuary 19, 2014
Cons: all of the above.
HR is terrible.. They will emphasize each day how you're just an temporary.
Don't start here if you want to be in the water industry. There are no manuals. All information is passed down by word of mouth of how to run anything there unless you already know about it. Don't let the position fool you. You''ll be hired on as a full time temp. Every day – more... is the same old same old..things breaking and other crews not doing their jobs out of laziness and incompetence. Look else where to start. – less

. New workers would be worked as be in a Boot-Camp.
. There is no professional – more... either in technical area or employee relation area.

Normal private enterprise
Water Pollution Control Manager (Former Employee), Laredo, TXOctober 10, 2012
Performig assigned work
I learnes how it works a private corporation.
Management is profit oriented.
Co-workers were great.
The hardest part was that the private enterprises have a very different approach to customer service than a public company.
The most enjoyable part was working along with co-workers.

A challenging and fun field
Regulatory and Compliance Advisor (Former Employee), Jackson, MSSeptember 17, 2012
Pros: an excitable challenge
Cons: the hours worked were mindboggling
1. A typical work day of 10 to 12 hours, with a maximum of 27 consecutive hours worked
2. I have learned that a Project Manager needs by far multiple skillsets in order to oversee 40 employees and update upper management simultaneously
3. Supervising with an iron fist decreases morale and thus a decrease in productivity
4. Facilitating OSHA and EPA – more... mandates. The volume of CFR's is mindboggling. A person with an advanced degree will find it impossible to remember all of the regulations. The above is the most difficult part of the job.
5. Learning and understanding the tasks of multiple departments is my most enjoyable. – less
