Peer Advisor (Former Employee) – Auburn, AL – May 9, 2017
A typical day included answering a student's questions about classes at Auburn University as well as doing some data basing on the computer and emailing both perspective students and current students. The culture was great and the management was helpful yet constructive. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to help students who were very stressed or unsure about their future classes. I learned a lot about the importance of staying calm while the students or parents of students were stressed or even angry.

My time in Auburn's Archives and Special Collections helped better prepare me for a potential career in archival work. I was able to work hands-on with articles and artifacts from the 1800s while learning how today's technology can help us relay history in a more efficient and intriguing manor.
Dairy Associate (Former Employee) – Auburn, AL – April 21, 2017
Working with cows all day can take it's toll on your oldfactory senses! They are big babies and love to be milked, scratched, and fed! The work is manual and routine, once you get it you really have the opportunity to learn a lot! The manager I worked for was incredibly intelligent if not a little intense sometimes! Lol you work as a team of two or three people, side by side with vet students and doctor some days!
Graduate Teaching Assistant (Current Employee) – Auburn, AL – April 17, 2017
I always looked forward to going to work, it was very flexible and student friendly environment. I work with my professor to prepare notes for the class and also class activities in the class. Helped students to learn in a more amiable setting and helped students with any questions they had. Hardest part of the job was to make sure that the students were understanding everything, and the enjoyable part is when we know we are doing a good job at teaching students.
Graduate Teaching Assistant, wasn't a true employee
Graduate Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – Auburn, AL – April 17, 2017
Attending graduate school you either get your tuition covered and stipend by being a research assistant or graduate teaching assistant. So a GTA teaches lab for the geoscience department but also needs to complete a thesis. So a GTA teaches and has to do research to receive the tuition waiver and stipend. Get ready to answer a lot of emails from students and spend a lot of time your first-semester teaching making your lecture power points. Clear guidelines are not set for how to teach and what to teach, although there is a lab manual that guides most of what you do. It was OK, but clearly the system hadn't been changed in decades.
Public Relations Coordinator (Current Employee) – Auburn, AL – March 27, 2017
I enjoyed my experience here at Auburn University, the staff is friendly and professional, and the opportunity is "through the roof", I highly recommend to anyone seeking a public relations job at the Office of Accessibility to consider Auburn in the future. I am relocating for other reasons that have nothing to do with my job.
Flexible work-schedule, friendly co-workers, easy work
