Working day:

The core working hours were eight hours daily; adhering to these was no problem, work to be done. A desired starting time was at 9 am and lunch break usually starte about one hour. It is important to mention that there was no canteen and as result restaurant. Due to the expense factor this arrangement was not an optimal one. Aft stayed in office until 6 pm, which in most cases was enough time to finish my tasks.


The support of my fellow employees always was sensational, both in personal conta context, I would like to point out that my two superiors have at all times created an and always had a sympathetic ear for questions. Furthermore, they succeeded in giv precise formulated tasks.


Resulting from the fact that I had colleagues from all over the world, I had the chan experiences from their way of solving problems. The atmosphere among us was res sometimes even very funny. In a whole, a very productive and constructive atmosph which was always relaxed through collective joking.

The city of San Jose not many attractions, except for a few awesome restaurants. But it is in the vicinity minutes by car from San Jose) and that city is absolutely stunning. There are endles Golden gate Bridge, the Golden Gate Park, Fishermans Wharf, Fort Mason (especial Union Square, the Bank of America building, Nob Hill, the Marriot hotel bar, Chinato Treasure Island and many more. Moreover there are so many more things to do in t cities, such as Monterrey, Santa Cruz, Point Lobos, Half Moon Bay, Redwoods, Napa many more.
