Great workplace where you also rest your head
Resident Advisor (Current Employee), Berea, KYMay 17, 2015
A typical day at work would be me creating something for the dorm, that will gain the interest of the residents. Talking to the residents in my suite when I wake up, and answering any questions they have, are a typical day.

CMA (Former Employee), Berea, KYDecember 23, 2014
Pros: close to home
Cons: not keeping staff updated on upcoming events
I loved working with the students, faculty and staff. Very nice people to work with. I enjoyed coming into work everyday. My co-workers and Doctors I worked with there were very friendly and became some of my closest friends. I hate that the practice was sold out cause I would have been there til retirement.

Teaching Assistant (Current Employee), Berea, KYMarch 20, 2014
hardest part of the job is the self-evaluation. i typically am harder on myself than my supervisor is
you are expected to do well and strive to achieve and do more than your job title although it is not required.
working with children is the best part
co-workers are usually helpful to each other although there is the gossip that infects all workplaces but we all tend to get past it

Resident Assistant (Current Employee), Berea, KYMarch 11, 2014
A typical day at work would be me communicating with my residents. Planning campus wide and dorm events to ensure that my residents have a enriching college experience. My job is to also make sure that the cleanliness of the dorm is maintained as well as the well being of my residents. I place maintenance orders to have broken equipment in the dorm fixed so that it does not cause a safety hazard for my residents. I also work as part of a team to manage and maintain the dorm that I work for.

A Great Learning Experience
Public Safety Student Coordinator (Former Employee), Berea, KYJune 3, 2013
Pros: most days are laid-back and fun
Cons: must be ready to handle emergency situations as they arise.
I worked here as part of Berea College's Work-Study program, which in itself is an amazing program to be a part of. A typical day here consisted of talking to customers on the phone, through e-mails, or in person and answering their questions or handling their concerns. For me, a typical day would also include talking to other student workers about their concerns and needs.

Productive always everyday at work
Assistant Womens Basketball Coach (Current Employee), Berea, KYMay 3, 2012
Pros: love my job and have a real passion for it
Cons: always want to get in a bigger program
I love my job and want to be the best at it. My job was at first a chance at first, but they welcomed me from day one and now I am living my career out and my co- workers make everything family like. Management is willing to help and is very patient with me in my first year working. The only hard part was at first transitioning from a student to a full time worker at the College, but now Im adjusted really well.
