What are the Best and Worst things about your job?
Currently have a close enough office location so commuting doesn't take more than an hour. Currently, get fuel allowance as I'm travelling to a temporary site office which some companies may not offer. Good, solid career progression.
As I'm titled a Trainee I am often expected to do the typical new staff member tasks, i.e. making tea, getting sandwiches etc. This is my third year as a QS and I've never really adapted to this sort of thing. Others in the office tend to get their backs up when I refuse to do this sort of thing - Not that it could bother me less.
