Grounds Crew Supervisor

June - August 2019 • Speculator, NY

What I liked

Upstate New York is very beautiful during the summer. The mountains were a wonderful aspect of my summer because I had the opportunity of going on some weekend trips up the nearby mountains.

What I wish was different

One of my coworkers was uncooperative at best, so working with him was a struggle. I wish he could have been a better coworker.

Advice

Stand up for yourself. There were times where I had to stand up for myself in what I believe and it turned out to help the situation.
