Educational community with an employee culture base for young workers, benefits were not same as when accpted position, no advancement potential
Executive Secretary (Current Employee) – Reading, PA – August 3, 2016
Although I love working in higher education and am seeking a position within higher education, Alvernia was inconsistent with the perceptions of the culture as well as benefits prior to starting which made for a difficult three years.
I learned how to balance three departments without structure prior to my starting, created process workflows to streamline the faculty expenses and evaluations, corrected and updated the website, developed plans to assist faculty and colleagues to be more team oriented and customer service focused.
I learned to start the position without any prior personnel in place and have it up and running within a few weeks through self training.
The position was part time and there was no upward mobility as the culture was focused on a young staff.
Exposure to gallery, theater and campus
No benefits, huge workload, no raises
