High energy, fun, but productive work environment
Studio Assistant for Pottery (Current Employee), Lewiston, MEJune 6, 2014
Pros: on campus, in art-studio
Cons: varying hours, unspecified or sudden urgent tasks
A typical day of work includes, reclaiming clay on the wedging board, loading or unloading a bisque kiln, glazing work, basic studio maintenance/up-keep, and making glazes, slips, and stains from raw materials. A few times a month I will glaze pottery, load/unload high-fire gas glaze kilns (including making cone packs), and clean kiln shelves, which – more... includes coating in kiln wash, and grinding off glaze runs.

Another component to this position was marketing for pottery sales at my College's bookstore. This included creating the advertisement/product bios, doing inventory, and setting prices on a consignment basis.

The position was oversaw by the Ceramics Professor at the College, and the co-workers were other very enthusiastic Studio Art Majors and potters who shared a love for pottery, ceramic history, and visual art and culture.

The hardest part of the job was the unspecified, varying work hours and duration of tasks.

The most enjoyable part of the job was the discussions with the Professor and co-workers bout modern art and the necessity and the changing meaning of pottery in society and modern and ancient cultures throughout the world. – less

Comfortable environment but hard to advance
Staff Assistant (Former Employee), Lewiston, MEJune 9, 2012
Pros: use of gym, pool, rink free. great campus. low turn over. nice environment. average pay. good retirement, health benes.
Cons: rare advancement opportunities. liberal atmosphere, others less welcome. cliques, families, "in" groups.
I saw only two promotions from within - they hire out instead, no merit raises/advancement, which caused big morale issues. Liberal values predominate. Nepotism common - your whole family could work there! Longevity, job security, and comfortable, professional work environment. On-going computer training offered free. Good pay and benefits - compares – more... to State average. – less
