Productive and Fun experience
Days at work are short because there is just so much to do for 8 hours. I discovered that I have excellent planning skills through this job as well as managing a large number of people and it also helped in boosting my communication skills. Fantastic work culture especially when it comes to safety of people. Recognition is the hardest and appreciation. Achieving projects before given deadline.
Pros
Free Lunches on certain milestones
Cons
No appreciation

Empowering and fun workplace
I worked as a filing clerk. I learned how sort mails, attend to all the inquiries from different customer, and knowing different types of filing and documents. The management was very good. The workplace culture was good. It is a structured environment with different race. The hardest part of the job was to work hard for a lesser salary which was from a hand to mouth. The most enjoyable part of the job was working under finance department and be exposed to different financial documents that I only knew from school.
Pros
Free tea anytime
Cons
lesser salary

Productive
Morning or evening meeting before starting, learned all about fabrications and welding. Manager was a nice person, he always made you feel needed and had time for any query one had. Good team of inspectors but had its ups and downs, resolved one on one.
Hardest part of the job worked night shift and missed my daughters first words and steps, no regrets though. Always finished the relevant paper work for the shift I was on.
Pros
Enjoyed the job
Cons
The company closed down

Was my firstjob
The work was very repetitive and automated - i became bored.
The first few months were interesting. My co-workers were very pleasant and helpful. The most enjoyable part of the job was setting up the flame spectrophotometers in the morning - it was a very specific skill set and if anything went wrong there was a possibility of blowing up the laboratory!!!!!

Fun, challenges and hard days.
A day at work was fun, enjoyed going to work and planning the day ahead.I learned how to be a leader and to lead a team and when to follow. Management thought me how to work under pressure very well.
What I liked about the co-workers is that they worked towards the same goal and promoted recognition.

The hardest part of the job trying to complete the workload when associates were not at work.

The most enjoyable part was working towards an objective.
Pros
Being recognised for good work
Cons
Team members not participating
