Accountant/Office Manager, Student Senate (Former Employee) – Student Leadership Center, – July 6, 2017
My work day was busy with many student interruptions and I learned how to deal with college-age students through daily interactions. My supervisor, at times, would make unnecessary comments about myself and spouse. The workplace culture was wonderful as I met students from all over the world. The hardest part of the job was dealing with my supervisor. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with and getting to know the students.

Service Technician (Current Employee) – Wellsville, NY – January 29, 2014
Awesome place to go if you want to learn about automotive education. The instructors are great they know how to teach, while at the same time they explain things in a different way that logically makes sense and will allow you to learn that much easier and not forget what you learned the day before. A work like atmosphere is created the moment you walk through the door which is the absolute best way to prepare you for the real world and the craziness of life.
Set up like your average automotive shop
not enough hours in the day to learn all the information you could.
Technical Leadership Assistant (Former Employee) – Alfred, NY – January 9, 2014
A typical day at work would consist of doing rounds in a suite making sure that all clubs are satisfied. I learned how to deal with multiple task at one time in a challenging environment. The management did not know how to organize there task that were on hand. My co-workers look at me as a leader. The hardest part of the job is drawing a line when you are working to hard. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting professionals and helping them develop an outlook of the suite that I was organizing.
CIT Department Intern (Former Employee) – Alfred, NY – June 27, 2013
Project-based learning is a cornerstone of our Alfred State culture. When students work on real-world problems, they learn how to think, not what to think. As a result, Alfred State has a 99% employment and transfer rate.
I got a chance to talk to a lot of amazing people and learn things about other people's college experiences besides my own
Phone a thon Caller (Former Employee) – Alfred, NY – May 21, 2013
I would arrive at work from 6 to 9pm Monday through Thursday. I learned how to speak to people to whom I did not know in a confident way. My manager and supervisors were always very helpful. My co-workers and I always had a fun time while calling. The hardest part about my job was getting people to talk to me that were not necessarily interested in donating to the school. The best part about my job was to hear other people's experiences.
Productive working atmosphere where teachers show you how to handle working in the real world
Welder (Former Employee) – Alfred, NY – March 22, 2012
Alfred State College is a very good school to go to if anyone is looking at pursuing a trade. This college has many different majors to pick from and a very good group of teachers who are the very best in the area at what they do. Young students can learn trades from culinary arts, heavy equipment and diesel, building construction etc.
