Enjoyable atmosphere.
Graduate Teaching Assistant (Former Employee), Auburn, ALApril 22, 2013
Willingness to work around your schedule and a light management touch made the job enjoyable.

Not much chance for "advancement" and "compensation" for a graduate teaching assistant as it is a part-time position.

Currently doing freelance for the Office of Communications and Marketing along with other departments
Freelance Graphic Designer (Current Employee), Auburn, ALApril 21, 2013
I love working with the Auburn Marketing department. The projects I have been given, tend to be the larger projects such as book and magazines. They do this so they can free up their inhouse designers for other projects.

I throughly enjoy working with all the people at Auburn. We talk on the phone or email daily to keep in contact. I have learned so – more... much from the Supervisor of Creative Services, and in turn it has honed my skills. I love learning new things! – less

Great team building experience
Orientation Leader (Former Employee), Auburn, ALApril 19, 2013
Being an orientation leader required patience, tolerance, creativity, and a sense of humor. Many of the students did not want to participate in the (mandatory) orientation because they felt it was a waste of time or that it was boring. They just wanted to get their class schedule and go about the rest of their day. Relaying the same information to each – more... orientation group was just as boring to the orientation leaders so, we would sit in the Student Union and brainstorm ways to shake things up and compare notes on what methods we had used in the past that we felt had worked the best at keeping the student's interest. Working with disinterested college students was difficult but, having them remember you when walking down the concourse or seeing them in the same class made it worthwhile. – less

Graduate Research Assistant (Current Employee), Auburn, ALApril 5, 2013
Pros: cost of living is decent
Cons: health insurance is expensive
The Chemical Eng Dept is just the right size with the faculty as well as the staff always willing to help students. They have always treated the students well and the phd stipends are competitive.

Computer Operator (Former Employee), Auburn, ALMarch 25, 2013
The job was fairly simple and very flexible regarding when the set tasks needed to be taken care of. However, working the weekend shift taught me responsibility and self-reliance.

Wonderful part time job working with children
Student Worker (Current Employee), Auburn, UniversityMarch 4, 2013
Currently, I work at an Elementary school in the after school program. I get to work and help make snack for the children. After snack and recess I help the children in homework time and then we go to sessions. Two days a week I manage arts and crafts club, and other days I help monitor the free play area.

I work with other college students, which – more... would probably be one of the most challenging parts of the job. We all differ in back grounds and approaches and it can be difficult to balance our tactics but it is always worth the effort when we do. – less

Awesome environment, great for families
Laboratory Manager (Former Employee), Auburn, ALJanuary 11, 2013
Pros: great people, great for families
Cons: town itself can be a bit boring- great for families, bad for singles
AU is a great school with the average amount of politics and issues. what makes it fantastic is its location. it truly is 'the loveliest village on the plain'. the people are friendly, the schools are excellent and its a great location to raise a family. as for work, it was good, the learning was not as challenging as I would have liked and there's – more... not much career advancement here unless you have a PhD (it is a university town). – less

Head Student Assistant (supervisor) (Current Employee), Montgomery, ALDecember 27, 2012
As supervisor, I typically sat at a desk for a couple hours a day checking the progress of our different programs (team registration, surveys, etc.) and answering any questions about Intramurals. I was in charge of the staff as far as discipline, scheduling, marketing, and programming. Outside the office I was either setting up for events or being an – more... official. – less

Educator (Former Employee), Clanton, ALDecember 7, 2012
Pros: could come and go as needed without question. time was flexible.
Cons: none that i can think of at this time.
My job with Auburn allowed me to work and encourage kids. I really loved my job. The other teachers were great people to work with!!
My Extension co-workers were more than co-workers but my family as well. There was never "back biting" or negativity in our office.
The hardest part of my job was having to leave when I moved back home to Greenville, AL.

Secure, Flexible student job
OIT Helpdesk Consultant - Part-time (Former Employee), Auburn, ALSeptember 5, 2012
Pros: challenging work, flexible schedule, excellent pay (for a student hourly worker)
Cons: very low accountability, zero incentive structure, poor management.
On campus Student/Faculty IT support is the ideal student job. The work takes skill, and the student employees are better compensated the more experience they gain (regular raises). The job is very flexible, adjusting easily with the somewhat unpredictable college schedule. Job security is top notch. This does, however, lead to decreased accountability – more... across the board. The full time employees are not very reliable. – less
