Pleasant Atmosphere, Understanding Management
Accounting Clerk (Current Employee), Provo, UTAugust 5, 2013
Pros: great management
Cons: limited amount of hours allowed by the university
A typical work day starts with updating my Excel sheet with a query of recent changes of vendors in Peoplesoft, particularly their method of payment. I have see if my manager converted any of them to electronic payments. I proceed to make cold calls to the vendors we pay the most often, and follow up on past leads. After a few hours of this procedure, – more... I begin scanning and data entering purchase card orders, invoices, journals, and checks. On certain days, I match checks and electronic payments to invoices in preparation of payment.
This position has taught me: how to multitask, cold call ethics, Peoplesoft navigation, data entry, how to scan, and how to overcome technological and social barriers. Learning about the cost of postage and stationary has shown me the economic and environmental benefits of electronic payments and digital invoices.
Co-workers are mostly students, as well. Therefore, they are pleasant enough, but they usually have little time to socialize outside of the office. They are very focused.
Management acknowledges that school comes first, but expects employees to focus on office tasks while on the clock. They give us potluck parties once a month for completing the monthly set of batches on time.
The most difficult part of the job is trying to get extra hours and sharing work with other employees.
The most enjoyable part of the job is by far is the attitude of the management. They understand that school is exhausting, and they give delicious rewards for hard work. – less

Lots of opportunities to help other students and develop my own understanding of fundamental engineering concepts
Mechanical Engineering Tutor (Current Employee), Rexburg, IDJune 3, 2013
I help students understand basic engineering concepts in subjects such as Statics, Dynamics, Strengths of Materials, Material Science, and Physics. This has greatly increased my understanding of concepts in these areas. The hardest part of doing this job is remembering and explaining all the concepts I have learned during my education. I enjoy sharing – more... what I have learned and being someone other students can go to with questions. – less

Great boss and co-workers
Computer Science Research Assistant (Former Employee), Provo, UTMay 2, 2013
I would work on software that go with Head-Mounted Displays. I learned creating software without any plan is extremely hard to work with. I had to refactor the project to make it easier for adding new functionality. The management was my boss gave me an assignment and I was left to myself to get it done. When I was not sure on what exactly the specs – more... was, I would create up a list and discuss with him. With co-workers, we help each other out. If he got stuck on something, I would help discuss it out solutions. He did the same for me. The hardest part of the job was trying to import library that was not well documented. The most enjoyable part of the job was to see the actual trials using the software I help create. – less

BYU is a private, church owned, university that stresses research, teaching, and moral values.
Professor of Mathematics (Former Employee), Provo, UtahFebruary 25, 2013
Pros: high quality of professors, students, and values.
Brigham Young University was an excellent place to work, with a balanced emhasis on research and teaching. It required strict moral behavior and stressed family values.

Great Education
RESEARCH ASSISTANT (Former Employee), Provo, UTFebruary 19, 2013
Overall, BYU is a great place to get a Graduate Education/Post-Doc. The chemistry department has great faculty and a wide variety of research opportunities. Compared to other Chemistry Institutions the faculty does not demand tons of hours from their students. Due to the religious nature of the university, many people opt for other universities. The – more... indirect result of this is that there is far more funding and resources per capita (due to religious funding) than would exist at many other places. – less
