Must enjoy work outdoors.
Environmental Field Technician (Former Employee) – Cleveland, OH – 21 October 2012
A typical day at work started in the office get an assignment, then it was about assembling equipment, materials and paperwork to take to the job site, which was usuallly a 2 hr. drive from the office.
At the job site, there were a safety/collection procedures that had to be documented in the filed notes. And as the samples were collected addition documenting in form of 'chain of custody' listing all information had to be completed. The samples had to be packed in ice and bubble wrap with the 'chain of custody' forms for shipping to the lab.
Then there was the two hour drive back to the Fed Ex store to get the samples to the lab. the next day.
This was a year round, outdoors no weather days off job. You must enjoy working outdoors!!!
Management was under 'pressure' to get work done, they pushed the filed tech. to get the work done.
