Lot Associate

June - August 2019 • Grand Rapids, MI

What I liked

I enjoyed being able to work outside with the nice weather. It was the first job I have had where I was able to work outside and enjoy the day while getting paid.

What I wish was different

I wish I would have been scheduled for more hours. My scheduling manager was only allowed to hand out a certain amount of hours on a weekly basis, so it seemed as if the lot associates took the hour cut almost every week.

Advice

I would read the job description before you accept a job. I understand that it is hard to while you’re in the moment of signing the documents, but it is always important to read the description and find out what you are and aren’t responsible for while working.
