Graduate Assistant (Former Employee) – Huntsville, AL – January 24, 2016
Working as a graduate assistant can get overwhelming mainly because I'm juggling school and work. I enjoyed the job but it became complicated due to very minimal training. I had be very proactive and do assignments to the best of my ability. The work environment was very focused.

I love that my supervisors are always willing to hep and listen with any new ideas I bring to them, not only that but they help implement them to a reality.

Chief Accountant (Former Employee) – Normal, AL – May 26, 2015
My professional setting mainly involves review and approval of business documents and processing banking transactions for the university. The most important lesson I've learned during my 30 years of experience in Higher Education is the value of good customer service. The most benficial part of the job is knowing that the student concerns have been resolved. I enjoy my co-workers most days but I always maintain professional intergrity even during the most stressful time.
Resident Assistant (Current Employee) – Normal, AL – May 4, 2015
A typical day on the desk can be laid back when residents are just taking it easy, but when they are not taking it easy, things can get rowdy. I learned more about myself if anything. Patience was a really big thing I have learned to exercise. My manager and co-workers all worked really hard this school year. Out of all the halls, we were selected Honorable Mention for best hall of the year;only coming second to a female dorm hall. The hardest part of the job is the beginning of the year and the end of the year. These are the times when residents move in and move out of the hall. The most enjoyable time of the job is when we put on programs for the residents. Most of the time it turns out to be fun for them and us.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Normal, AL – April 28, 2015
It is a very productive place, It defiantly helps you get on your feet. People are always willing to help you and give you advice and words of wisdom. If ever you need help someone is always a phone call away. My supervisor is very helpful if ever I am confused and he also very understanding in many situations. We have lots of laughs but we also make sure our work is done on time.
Work Study Student (Former Employee) – Normal, AL – March 11, 2015
The overall work experience was good for me but it could've been better. There was no air conditioner running so I was working hard and sweating for no air. So the school really needs to change how they do a couple of things.
