Teaching assistant (Former Employee) – Provo, UT – July 31, 2014
This isn't a bad job. If you are a student who needs a little extra money or if you need to improve in a subject than this is a good position. Normally you grade papers and submit the grades to grade book. Occasionally you will need to help students with their course work. Management is very hands off and they give you all the tools you need to succeed without hovering over you shoulder. You will get better at what ever subject you TA and the hardest part of the job is the occasional question that is beyond your ability to answer after consulting the book. On these occasions you will need to take the student to the professor so that both of you can get help. It is great watching fellow students master difficult concepts.
Great work environment with supportive and innovative management
IT Training Manager (Former Employee) – Provo, UT – January 21, 2016
The Office of IT at BYU is a great place to work. There is a strong overall desire to provide and support the campus technology needs. There is a genuine interest in helping fulfill the mission of the University. The co-workers are generally competent and great to work with.
Supportive Management, Great co-workers, Positive environment
Custodian (Former Employee) – Provo, UT – January 13, 2016
I would go and clock in at 8, go see my manager and she would tell me and my co-workers what the jobs were that day. Then we would spend our shift fulfilling those jobs. If we finished those jobs before our shift ended we would either go back to the manager and ask her what else she wanted us to do, or we would ask our group leader and he would give us an assignement. At 12 we would clock out.
I learned that it is important to follow instructions and do your best to fulfill the instructions that you receive. Attention to detail is important in order to do a good job.
The management was decent. The manager would give advice on how you could do better and what she wanted you to do. Although there seemed to be some miscommunication between the management and the employees from time to time.
My co-workers were good. They were helpful when you were confused about what was expected of you.
The hardest part of the job was finding things to do once you finished the specific things that your manager asked you to do.
The most enjoyable part of the job was that it was pretty easy-going.
GROUNDS CREW (Current Employee) – Provo, UT – December 16, 2015
It is a great school, and the Grounds Crews are great! Everyone does a great job and works really hard. A typical workday varies, but we maintain the Provo Temple Grounds by doing the basic lawn care and doing show removal when it snows. We pick up the leaves that fall off all the trees, and weed all the flowerbeds and we prune the trees and bushes. I have learned a lot at this job. How to properly use all the machines, and how to better work with others. The Management was great! They have Student Appreciation Day every once in a while for all the grounds crew workers. All my coworkers I have worked with have honestly been the best I have ever worked with, ever! I have really grown to love them, and appreciate them! We all have gotten really close with each other, and have become really great friends. I really have enjoyed working with them. I don't think there is really anything hard about this job. Its really pretty simple, and self explanatory. There are a lot of things I really enjoy about this job. My coworkers as I have previously mentioned, and making the temple grounds looking great for those who attend the temple. My supervisor is pretty flexible and a really great guy to work with.
SAP Student Lead, Tutor, Grader (Current Employee) – Laie, HI – December 14, 2015
The best part is to be able to work closely with the supervisor. It also provides an opportunity to learn while working. The work-life balance is great here. The community is also very family oriented. The standard is very high, but it is very great to work here.
Student Services Representative (Former Employee) – Provo, UT – December 14, 2015
There are a lot of standards and expectations to uphold. The office where we worked at was held at an even higher standard considering we were representing the university to future students and alumni members who had any questions. However, it is very rewarding to be apart of such an organization and program. There are several notable individuals that have passed through that university and ave gone on to do great things. It was a great experience for me to work inside the financial aid and admissions office and offer any assistance i could to those who needed it.
Instructor - Essentials of Calculus (Current Employee) – Provo, UT – October 22, 2015
I worked as an instructor and assistant instructor, and I loved it. The coworkers, management, and administration are all very helpful and friendly. Fun to work with students, who are bright and mostly eager to learn.
Technical Projects Manager (Former Employee) – Rexburg, ID – October 19, 2015
Working at Brigham Young University-Idaho allowed me to explore interests in multiple areas. Every single one of my supervisors enjoyed letting students learn and try new things, without fear of making a mistake. In the four positions I held within the A/V Productions Department, the every day situation required me to think on my feet, learn exact steps to accomplish certain tasks ensure functionality of a technical system, or safety for those around me and those enjoying the show or concert being performed.
People, diversity, flexibility, dedication of those around me
Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – Provo, UT – October 12, 2015
Working at/for BYU was a great experience for me. It allowed me to pay my tuition every semester while managing a hectic school schedule. It's so worth it to do this as a student because it provides a small income and forces good time management development.
Marketing Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Provo – September 17, 2015
In all honesty, this was simply a research position that I had at BYU while I was a student. My boss was an awesome professor, who challenged me a lot, so the work was awesome. Learned a great deal and built great relationships with many people.

Often had to do lots of background research, which required reading lots of dull research, just to find the one gem
