Wonderful place to work
iCare Technician (Current Employee), Muncie, INJanuary 13, 2015
I really enjoy working with my colleagues, coming to work is a great experience. My supervisors are intelligent people and they help me grow everyday. I have learned so much about technology and I continue to learn more each day. The hardest part of my job is having trouble diagnosing a problem and then having to tell the customer.

Food Court
Custodian (Former Employee), Food ServiceJanuary 5, 2015
A typical day was to clean all messes made by customers as well as co-workers, take out trash and fill in other positions if needed. What was learned was team work, as the customers needed to be served in a timely manner, as well as detail. The detail was important as there was detailed cleaning that needed to be done.

Good
Graduate Assistant (Current Employee), Muncie, INDecember 16, 2014
Pros: lots of freedom in the way work is done, good professors, intelligent and enjoyable people.
Cons: high pressure, very large workload, low pay.
It was graduate school in a hard science. It was a 60 hour work week with responsibilities to many different bosses. In a typical week there were dozens of hours of homework, grading, and research to do, – more... as well as many meetings. It was an enjoyable atmosphere with many intelligent people, and incredibly rewarding and interesting work. It is however high stress. There is a large amount of pressure to perform, and a very large work load. – less
