Productive environment and safe workplace.
Mason's assistant (Former Employee) – Bedford Park, IL – 15 March 2016
At this company ,ALPA, I found everything to be up to par, all safety codes were followed, everyone displayed a relaxed yet professional demeanor, satisfactory compensation, which made this an overall great workplace. We all showed pride in our work, and everyday saw the building ,a nursing home, start to develop from a hole in the ground to a sturdy, concrete shell.
My typical day involved bringing materials to the masons, such as mortar mix and CMUs ,concrete masonary units, as well as assembling and dissembling the scaffolds. I did learn how to make mortar mix . I also got an idea of how masons contruct a building. It was an amazing experience to witness and assist in engineering this building.
The hardest part of my job was the weather conditions, Some days it would be a hundred degree. We did take regular breaks and followed all safety codes, but on certain days the heat was very hard to tolerate. Finally, the most enjoyable part of my job was witnessing the structure being built and knowing that I had done a great job. I could see my hard work rising everyday, and all the sweat and time I sacrificed was worth that sense of pride my work instilled in me.
Positive atmosphere All safety codes followed
