A typical day at work would be out in the field, doing survey scans on businesses/companies. This involved going to the locations, and completing a quick data scan on a cell phone(s). Two of the other main projects involved bluetooth beacon installations and maintenance, and a GPS location accuracy test project among several model phones. I learned that technology is becoming more and more intertwined in our lives, in ways we don't even know yet- the future both excites me and terrifies me. The hardest part of the job would be maintaining the relationships in your life- on average, 2 weeks of every month were spent working out of state. The most enjoyable parts of the job were probably in how autonomous you were out in the field, and being on the forefront of technology developments worldwide.
I worked with Google Express under SMX as an Independent Contractor. It was not a bad job. I left because my contract was up and there was not much of job advancement. I would recommend this job to people who are just stepping their foot into the workforce or people who need extra cash. I enjoyed the bond I made with fellow coworkers, there were a great bunch of people on the team. One negative aspect is that the contract is only a year and after 3 months you are eligible to reapply. Another one is that you are not informed about exactly when your contract is close to being up so you can prepare yourself to look for another job. However, overall the job is not that bad for the one year you're allowed to work there.

I was a contractor at google so not an official googler and they make sure you remember that all the time. The contract had zero benefits and was honestly pretty terrible. A typical work day began by clocking in on a phone where they tracked your location. Then you would proceed to package boxes basically all day long and then clock out immediately at the prescribed time regardless of task. The pay was uneven and completely unfair. Not nearly enough to live off of. The culture was corporate and micromanaging in the main office but satellite offices were pretty relaxed and conducive to good work. Most enjoyable part was clocking out each day or getting a schedule that included more that 30 hours. Hours were ridiculously tight.
you can say you worked at google
saying you worked at google is not all that useful
It was a cool place to work the pay was not great but it was nice not being micromanaged . The company closed with giving employees a two week notice and it was right before the holidays. They offered 100$ for inconvenience which didn't help at all. The manager was very cool and helpful
Took a huge pay cut throughout company which made a lot of people leave the team. Call center was the worse. They would be from other states in the country so they wouldn't understand the traffic patterns around this area and would get frustrated with the couriers when we wouldn't get to certain places at certain times.
I love it, I work by myself by documenting my task and work assignments through a ticketing system. Great healthy food for the googlers, I was a contractor but I can receive the same perks as a full time googler. I love troubleshooting situations to help out a fellow googler or a new person coming into the office which means a Noogler.
free lunches, no timecards, take a break when you can
working alone, no team other then working through google hangouts

Working at Google Express was a wonderful experience and I enjoyed every moment of my time with the project. A typical day at work usually involved me dealing with different customers at a number of stores that the project has contracts with and ensuring that we represent the Google brand to the best of our abilities. The best part of the job was being able to work with the Google team. My coworkers on this project was probably the best group of individuals I got the chance to work with. It was a good environment where everybody was eager to get the job done and I thoroughly appreciated the work ethic.
RA is a great company to work for. Ive enjoyed my experience and learned many things. I starred washing dishes and moved up the ladder at an acceptable rate. The management was great at teaching you how to be great at your job. I learned how to prep and cook a multitude how different dishes, also I learned to manage a account and great customer service skills. All of my co-workers were devoted and great at their jobs. Everyone worked together as a team to complete the mission and not once did we fail. The hardest part of the job was dealing with issues that were out of our control i.e. deliveries not being on time or equipment malefactions. I loved the hard work and meeting great people that supported you.
Unique Working Environment with Opportunity to Exercise Self-Motivation
Mapping Technician (Volt alkalmazott) - Washington, DC - 2013, január 8.
A typical work day would include the set-up and inspection of technical data capturing equipment. The nature of the job required continuous attention to detail and a high level of situational awareness. The independent nature of the working environment required an extraordinary level of trust and communication with management. The hardest part of the job was also the most rewarding part. This included setting personal goals which would successfully translate into meeting goals of the entire project. The most enjoyable part of the project required the highest level of personal restraint and responsibility. This was being able to effectively communicate the goals of the project without divulging sensitive details.
flexible hrs, casual work environment, easy to communicate with management
