I am currently still attending college and I managed to balance work and school with my schedule. I am currently working as a foodservice worker in Honolulu, Hawaii at the Queen’s Medical Center Punchbowl in the Dietary Department. My job duties for this position is delivering and collecting patient meal trays from different parts of the hospital, scrape trays, load and catch dishes from the dishwasher. The worst part of my job is collecting patient meal trays, scraping trays and the clean up after washing all dishes and scraping trays because this is the dirty and time consuming part of my job. Just remember with every job there is going to be a worst part. With the worst part of every job you have to just role with it and focus on completing the job. Hope this helps.
Currently we are experiencing a wave of retirements at our company. There are great people here with long tenure who have made the decision to retire and while they have dedicated their lives to the advancement of this company they have become family to most us being groomed by this culture. Fannie Mae is a family of experts and talented individuals. We have grown to appreciate each others talents and respect those who have contributed to change and the stabilization of our economy. Each one will be missed a great deal. As much as I consider it the worst part it is also one of the best parts about our culture here at Fannie Mae. We celebrate those leaving while others have a chance to grow and evolve in our company.
I have been in the workforce for about 3 years now after graduating from college. In the beginning of my career, there are two aspects of full-time employment that I found challenging. The first is the lack of experience in comparison to other co-workers. Any job will have an introduction and training period where you have to learn how to accomplish your roles and responsibilities. It can be frustrating to be at the low end of the totem pole, and have to work your way to having expertise in your field. The second challenge is transitioning to a full-time work schedule. If you are graduating from school, or just have no job at the moment, an 8 hour work day can take some getting used to. However, once you gain experience in your job, and master a routine, having a job is extremely rewarding.
If I had to give advice to someone beginning their career, I would say follow your passion and be willing to go outside your comfort zone. You will have a job of some sort for most of your life, and enjoying that job will make the worst parts better.
I am an Instructional designer. The worst part of my job is that I sit down a lot of the time and most of my projects can be done by just me. The sitting all day can be hard on me physically, including being overweight. It can be lonely to do a project on your own. Plus it really limits creativity since it is easier to be creative with another person than on my own.
