Director of Admissions (Current Employee) – Miami Shores, FL – April 20, 2015
A lot of work within my department. Definitely not enough assistance with the admissions office. I learned how to be a self starter, I learned how to handle a mass amount of work, I learned how to deal with work in the office, at home, and on the weekends.
Management is great at times, there is a definite need for more staff, but we keep getting a push back saying that positions are not approved.
My co-workers go through their motions, sometimes happily, sometimes not so happily.
The hardest part of the job is during our busy season and there is no assistance from anyone.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the interaction with our students,.
Working for this company is great, the atmosphere is perfect and there are a lot of great people to be around. For a college student in a second year, this is the best job because you interactive and you learn about the real work place after college and get a feel of how things should be.
The overall experience was great. I loved working with students that were trying to find their path in life. A drawback was people from out of the area thought everything would be like what they saw on TV.

Volunteer Usher at Campus Ministry (Former Employee) – Miami, FL – May 17, 2015
On Sunday mornings I go to church an hour before the Mass starts, I set up for Mass , I check in all those who are suppose to participate in the mass that morning , and make immediate replacements if somebody does not show up,and I make sure we have enough available programs. I welcome those who come to church and hand them the programs. I like doing that because, you never know how hectic somebody's week has been and when you welcome them with a bright smile and ask them how they have been , their faces brighten up like to say at least someone cares. I also get invited to meetings where we discuss about how to get students more involved with Campus ministry and what services we think they will like to attend more. Within Campus ministry I also get involved in retreats and in volunteer activities , like going to the Trailer park houses and teaching the children some basic math and also play around a little. I like volunteering there the atmosphere is good and relaxing. It is something I can do constantly.

Barry University is a class act University. I have worked at Barry now for 20 years as a part time instructor and I am still working there. The administration and the students make working at Barry worthwhile.
Working at Barry University has taught me to be more understanding with everyone and respect the surrounding different cultures. I learned how to be efficient with all work tasks and many administrative skills.
