great leadership experience
Resident Assistant (RA) (Former Employee), reading, paJune 5, 2014
Pros: free room & board, great leadership experience
Cons: have to learn to live a "always being watched" lifestyle
building rapport and relationships with your same-age peers as their leader, being a good example to them at all times and learning to live a "fish bowl" type of life where everyone's always watching. fantastic staff, co-RAs are always willing to lend a helping hand. troublesome residents can be trying, but most students are appreciative for everything you do for them.

Greatest people to work with

Alvernia is a wonderful place to work, and I'd love to be there full time, but the culture of hiring adjuncts limits the number of full time employees that they hire.

Interesting and Hard work
Facilities Worker (Current Employee), Reading, PAMay 9, 2013
The job itself was rough. There were multiple issues throughout the day that we had to fix. We cleaned dorm rooms and made sure that they were ready for those who lived on campus. I was in charge of a certain small group and was able to make sure that they were working.

Loved it
Work Study Employee (Current Employee), Reading, PAApril 30, 2013
The people and the environment was so friendly and open. Everyone was there to help you with anything you asked for, even if you asked the same question before. It was a very safe and warm community of employers. A typical say in the office would consist of me going around to the counselors and asking if they needed anything done. Any work that needed to be filed or copied. I would complete simple projects and tasks like that and then move onto the next person.

Good Experience, Good Atmosphere, Excellent Place to Work
Peer Tutor (Current Employee), Reading, PAMarch 6, 2013
Pros: flexible hours, good co-workers and management
As a student and employee, I have enjoyed my time at Alvernia University.

Since I am a per diem tutor, I come in whenever I am needed to help students accomplish their coursework.

I have learned how to help others while they are struggling through difficult tasks and the skills necessary to help them advance their learning abilities.

Management was flexible, friendly, and helpful.

My co-workers were also hospitable, friendly, and energetic.

The hardest part of the job involved explaining concepts that were difficult, even for me to understand when I was taking the particular course. Because I struggled in that area, it helped me understand what other students were feeling, and I was able to help them understand the material faster than when I was alone.

The most enjoyable part of the job involved seeing a student walk away from a session knowing more than what they did coming into the Learning Center,
