Good benefits for a part time position with decent job security and a good office environment
College Assistant (Current Employee), New York, NYJune 25, 2014
Pros: comprehensive benefits, office environment, flexible hours
Cons: busy environment with a lot of volume and not enough staff at times
A typical day at work is spent providing access to library materials to students and professors.

I've learned a lot about editing, proofreading, and citations and what's it's like to work in an academic environment.

Management is willing to work with staff to accommodate specific needs and concerns.

Our co-workers do well as a team and united front.

The – more... most difficult part is helping large amounts of students in short amounts of time.

Being able to keep busy with office work that isn't redundant makes the job enjoyable. – less

Free education after one-year
Administrative Superintendent- of CF & O (Current Employee), New York City/MidtownJune 25, 2014
Pros: they give you 4-weeks vacation and 5-weeks after 8-years
Cons: medical coverage is costly and have not received a salary raise in 7-years
Excellent work environment with a great boss. Co-workers gets along with each other. You are required to be highly organize because of multitasking as there are many challenges but manageable. The hardest part of the job is training staff as it is a multicultural environment and must be diverse to train in English and Spanish. They learn differently – more... and you need to find the niche that will work for you. Most enjoyable part of the job working with caring people and seeing your accomplishments at work. Recognition from the President of the College and CUNY. – less

Pros: stable and predictable.

Very poor senior management and ethics. Most of the time is spent reacting to crisis and not working strategically. Very well intention staff without strong business acumen. The great benefit is going to school for free.

the office that I was employed from october 2003 to july 2009 was a wonderful environment to work.
College Assistant (Former Employee), New York, NYJuly 27, 2013
A typical work day and environment at Baruch College Undergraduate Admissions just like any other professional office dealing to help enroll potential students into Baruch if they met the criteria, and helping current students register for classes and other requirements like immunization and verification of New York State residency. I learned how to – more... deal with the public in a professional manner and learned how to respectfully approach and understand people of different cultures, religions, and nationalities that needed answers to their needs and concerns; part of that learning process also helped enhanced my communication skills, which is an important asset in the workforce and the real world. Management at Undergraduate Admissions are excellent when it came to enrollment and providing services for students who needed the extra help In fact, Baruch enrolled students from the best high schools in New York, in the United States, and in other parts of the world, which is why is one of the top ten business colleges in America. My co-workers were great people to work with, and for instance, while working there as a student and later a graduate, they helped me a great deal and trained me with certain skills like how to enter stops and clearances into a student database system on the computer and how to conduct a campus tour to a group between 20-30 people. The difficult aspect of the job when it became extremely busy, which in reality, is not difficult at all except while explaining to students who were denied entry into Baruch due to low grades, applied past the dateline, and were missing transcripts. Telling them why they not accepted for those reasons aforementioned, they quickly blame you and the staff for not helping them or for not doing our jobs, but I have to understand that part of the job as a college assistant is to deal with criticism and stay focused to do the job that I have to do.
What enjoyed about the job was helping students, my fellow co-workers because they helped build my character as a person. Those students that I and my co-workers helped thank us for being clear and informative to them Even in situations when I dealt with angry students who were denied entry, a few of them saw me months later or years later and they apologized to me for their anger getting in the way and later becoming students afterward. That was the most enjoyable part of the job. – less

Working at Baruch
College Assistant (Former Employee), New YorkJune 17, 2013
It has its good days and it has its bad days. The hardest thing about working here is the fact that the budget might run out in 2 months and you'll be looking for a new job.
