Tech Team Member

January 2018 - August 2019 • Nashville, TN

What I liked

They were good with scheduling and allowing me the time off I needed to take a month off for a mission trip. I also made $13 an hour which was nice.

What I wish was different

They dissolved a bunch of teams and gave their responsibilities to me. It was more work than any one human could handle without help, and they very rarely scheduled me the help I’d need.

Advice

Don’t let someone get mad at you for not meeting unrealistic expectations. If you find yourself in a hostile work environment, start looking for employment elsewhere.
