I work part time in an office - a call center for a manufacturer of well known brands of consumer products.  I've been there for almost 20 years & I like the job & my co-workers.  It is a very busy job and seldom boring, though sometimes monotonous.

Quoting Cindy18:

Friendly,  I work at a college.  I have been here for 26 years.  I never thought I would be here that long but it is a great place to work.

fun place to work,  It is definitely a fun place to work.

boring,  It can be boring sometimes.  If I am working on a large test bank it is very repetitive.

busy,  It can be quite busy depending on the time of year.  It is busier at the beginning and end of the semester.  Once they decide on a new learning management system it will be busy because everything will have to be changed over.

office based,  It is definitely office based.

community based?  I have occasionally gone out into the community for various reasons.

Job #1 Friendly, yes

Fun place to work: can be

Boring, busy: never boring, being a department of one keeps me busy

Office based, community based: kind of both, I am a collections manager for a small museum.


Job #2 Friendly: yes, I really like a lot of my fellow local archaeologists

Fun place to work: can be, depends on the weather, and conditions like mud, bugs, poison ivy ect.

Boring, busy: can be boring, walking a cornfield is kind of boring you just keep walking and starting at the ground.

Office based, community based: I don't get into the report writing end of jobs, so mine is office based only when doing artifact cleaning and recording. We are in the community but not always welcome. 

 And I still occasionally help my daughter out with work from the drafting business I turned over to her last year, that is very boring, computer work.

My workplace is my home, which I love but is definitely a lot of work as three levels, two sets of stairs to dust.   It changed last December when my husband's consulting job was finished and he has been at home ever since, something I was definitely not used to.  He has an office on the basement level and has done a lot of work there, but is usually around for lunch.  He has started to seriously look for a new position, and then my workplace will be more solitary again.  Yay.

Horrid, it is the worst place I have ever worked.
