Workplace Compare and Contrast
Summer Job 2007-2010 vs. Real Job
- Summer job would have given all of the groups inappropriate names. On purpose.
- Summer job management violated any number of rules about workplaces. Staff followed the lead.
- Summer job gave me impossible tasks which I completed deftly for little praise. Regular job gives me fairly straight-forward tasks and wants to give me a raise.
- Summer job was stupid hot all the freaking time (no a/c, over 90F). Regular job has air conditioning; one of my offices never gets up to 70 due to the University's attempts to save energy. (The warmest they can make it is 69.4.)
