Flexible job
Photo Lab Technician (Former Employee), Bridgewater, MAJuly 3, 2014
Pros: free darkroom access, flexible hours
Cons: part time only, inconsistent, lingering chemical smell
A fantastic part time job to pull in some extra cash for school supplies or gas money. I worked in the darkroom developing area. I made sure everything was clean, organized, and fully stocked.

I loved working with other students. Though communication was tough so it was a little unpredictable. Some days nothing needed to get done, other days I needed – more... to mix massive batches of chemicals for the darkroom in addition to other duties. – less

Office Assistant (Former Employee), Bridgewater, MAMay 18, 2013
Pros: flexible hours, laid back and relaxful place to work.
Cons: not allowed enough hours.
I very much enjoyed this job. It allowed me to become familiar with the campus along with meeting new people of all ages and it allowed me to get a feel of what it would be like to become an RA. I learned a lot about what it would take to become an RA and how it's not an easy job but that's it's very rewarding.

Visiting Lecturer in Communication Studies (Former Employee), Bridgewater, MAOctober 23, 2012
I liked this job, because I learned how to teach. I learned about the reality of facilitating education in a classroom.The typical day happened in one of two ways. Either, I was preparing for the course meetings or I was working with students. The management was fine: they are dedicated to education. My co-workers were supportive and friendly. The hardest – more... part of the job was dealing with the stress of giving finals and assigning grades. The most enjoyable part of the job was watching the students learn. Many of the students were hard working and nice to be around. – less

Values high but horrible hours, contract, no benefits, pay is mediocre
Educator/Administrator (Current Employee), Boston, MAJuly 12, 2012
Pros: beautiful grounds; nice staff; many of the students are committed to their learning
Cons: long drive, low pay, no benefits, classes spaced out with hours in-between, lack of adminstrative support
Working at Bridgewater State University has toughened me up quite a bit; the students, while mostly respectful and committed to their education, realize that this is a big business, and that their rights (and feelings) come first. It is nearly impossible to get students to stop texting, emailing, and surfing during class; they are often late, do not – more... take homework seriously, want ALL of the answers for tests, in advance, and if you don't accommodate ALL of their needs, they write you up on "Rate your teacher." So from the teacher perspective - mine - one who has been an "A" student since kindergarten, never missing class and never speaking out against an educator - I, who CARE about their learning in every respect, and am a highly qualified and knowledgeable educator - it is a very difficult gig. I still do care and rank education in America as our number one priority; but how to reach students AND administrators with what MUST be the ground rules for authentic (or any) learning to occur? – less
