Hired in to replace one girl who was leaving for college. Second girl left several months later as she was moving. Both girls had worked 8 hours a day as did I. Within 6 months I was only working 4 hours a day because my work was done. I requested being able to leave if my work was done as I don't believe in getting paid for an 8-hour day if my work is done in 4 hours. I was allowed to read if I wanted, but it didn't work for me. It just wasn't right. So I worked 4 hours a day for about four years. I worked until I retired.
Paid by Employment Group to work for different businesses in town. I worked for:
Kellogg downtown home office, Kellogg on Porter Street, Kellogg at Fort Custer, Denso and EPI.
Most jobs lasted about a year or less. In the home office I was secretary to the Director of Benefits. I did basic office work of filing, mail, setting up appointments for meetings with other businesses. When I was interviewed for the full time position about 8 weeks later, I told them I was not interested in being hired.
At Porter Street I was there only a short while while the girl I was replacing went on an extended vacation. Again, just basic office work. Answering phones, opening mail, etc.
At Fort Custer I entered daily all parts and pieces of equipment that went into the building of WKKI.
At Denso they were getting a new computer system, and I was verifying all transfers of information to make sure it was transferring correctly.
At EPI Fulfillment I worked on the phones taking incoming calls from businesses ordering items from Kimberly Clark such as paper towels, dispensers, toilet paper, and any other items that they might need for their business that Kimberly Clark provided.
