I enjoyed learning new concepts regarding the saw business and was fascinated with how each separate job was pracessed.
Management was hard to work for but I knew how to stand my ground and stand up for myself.
My co-workers were all men and I interacted well with them.
The hardest part of the job was dealing with the boss.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the hours. I knew exactly what hours I worked each week and could relay on my paycheck being pretty much the same each week.
working alone in office, building a rapport with clients, good working hours
putting up with a boss who did not have any people skills where his staff was concerned
