Professional with expertise in this field
I was hired on November 23, 2009 at the WCF Osceola Office. My job was temporary and was to terminate on June 30, 2010. My short experience with WCF was rewarding in the sense that I enjoyed helping customers and received positive feedback for my services to them. However, managers and some coworkers made my work experience at WCF (Osceola Office) hard to forget. Managers and some coworkers treated me less equal than others--I was mocked and harrassed many a times! I am still wondering how the managers and some coworkers felt so comfortable to the point where they felt it was OK to mock another fellow employee just because I happened to be of different ethnicity and culture!
