I loved working independently. I had a Ops lead that I could call, if need be. But for the most part all communication was done via Email with new towns to map and due dates.
Independent, loved driving
Didn't last long enough
A typical day at work was to go out to an area of Palm Beach County and "map the area" according to my GPS system inside the car. A camera was mounted on the top of the car for information gathering.
my own boss
not as easy as it sounds
I had a helper and we would pick up our car for the day and we would go on our route. i would drive and the helper would deliver the material. we would pick up material from stores and deliver them to customers
great knolege of the city
the shifts they had didn't leave room to get personal things done
Work at same time you having some fun because you’re going to different places and meet different people while doing my task
Google is a great company to work in and the experience is awesome the greatest job I ever had. To be a part of google street view project I’m really proud and a memorable one.
People are also excited seeing the google car that I’m driving some are taking pictures and videos
Sometimes my wheels get stuck in a mud paddle in remote areas
Working remotely from 3000 miles away from the office can be both a blessing and a curse. I knew id never recieve emails in the middle of the night but, depending on who you "Ops-Lead" is, They may either take forever to reply or not reply at all. However that aside, I love driving and i like being by myself. I was perfect for the job, but i can definitely see not everyone being able to handle it.
Very accepting workplace
Slow or nonexistent communications.
Everyday I mapped a new area of either my city or the surrounding counties. I learned the city like the back of my hand this way and with the guidance of management(who were awesome) I efficiently got my job done. The hardest part was simply getting used to working a job that didn't require me to do back breaking work. It was very odd just driving all day and getting paid for it but very enjoyable.
laid back, great management, learning experience.
Long ride back home.
You can start mapping after sunrise and map until sunset, so as long as the sun is up (minus some dusk/dawn parameters) you can get out there when you want, stop when you need to, and not have any micromanaging. Very fun and freeing position, but can be a little boring at times in a car all day by yourself. Very fun summer job.
You're working for Google!
Google as a company was incredible! The culture was great, job performance expectations were high but never overwhelming. Although this was a temporary job, I was never made to feel expendable. They cared about me, my wellbeing, and did all they could to make me feel like I was important! I LOVED this job and would hope to land this position again!
As a Project Driver you never knew what the day would hold and where you where off to next. The money is extremely good and Google really look after their employees. We always stayed in the best lodging available. Only hard part, and I say this lightly, is we would sometimes be far away from any civilisation. In those cases support from HQ was difficult.
Good salary, lunch and dinner included
The StreetView project is a very wonderful and unique position. On a daily basis I drove the StreetView car and updated Google maps. I had the privilege to meet many wonderful people.
My contract at Google for their self driving car project has been a truly fun and unique experience. Every day we come in to work and test their self driving cars on the streets of Mountain View. Through this job I've learned how to troubleshoot software bugs and learned ways to communicate with a cross functional team of developers of various backgrounds.
