Professional and rewarding part-time work environment
Adjunct Instructor College of Education (Current Employee), Dayton, OhDecember 30, 2014
Pros: love the work. flexible schedule.
Cons: low pay.
A typical day as an Adjunct College Instructor in the College of Education involves planning and implementing challenging lessons to prepare future teachers for the education profession. Responsible for monitoring and maintaining records of student progress and achievement. It is a fairly independent position so the interaction with the department chair is minimal. There is nothing hard about the job, it is very enjoyable, but at final time the demands can be somewhat challenging. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with my students.

Fun workplace with wonderful students and faculty
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Wilberforce, OHDecember 1, 2014
Pros: easy going atmosphere
Cons: no job security, frequent lay-offs
The typical day of work consisted of filing documents, answering phones, handling correspondence for the Chairman of the Department of Fine and Performing Arts. Entered purchase requisitions and following their progress until complete. Maintained budget for entire department. Completed all travel expense reports for department faculty. Schedule meetings and travel arrangements for department. I learned how to be more flexible by not keeping such a rigid schedule that I created to finish my work all while completing each task by priority, quickly and efficiently. The management was wonderful, I enjoyed both chairmen during my employment. My co-workers and I had a healthy and fun working relationship and got along great! The hardest part of the job was in attempts to handle my duties as efficiently as possible, the "upline" sometimes hindered tasks being completed in a timely manner due to lack of attention to detail which tended to make things slightly difficult. However, I always managed to show that my duties were always completed. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with great faculty and students.

very nice work place with great chemical equipment
Intern (Former Employee), Wilberforce, OHNovember 15, 2014
A typical day at work begins with an assigned experiment which is then researched for background information such as hazardous codes and chemical substitutions for safer experiment procedures. Once chemicals are set in stone procedure is then performed with safety equipment (goggles, lab coat) if experiment is completed in error or dose not have the expected results it is then analyzed for calculation error's or human errors and then repeated. Co-workers and advisor also check over the presented work discussion and suggestions are taken in consideration to form new analysis. The hardest part of the job is when your results are not accurate or précises and changes must be made. The most enjoyable part of the job is discovering alternate ways of accomplishing the same outcome of an experiment.
