Facilities Assistant, Ellensburg, WA - July 23, 2015
My job as a custodian may not have been glamorous, but I learned how to work long hours doing physical labor without complaint. I was a student during my years at this job first and foremost, though I never once regretted the decision to send in my application to work for Central Washington University. I have a high level of respect for my superiors who work countless hours behind the scenes making college functions and on-campus living go off without a hitch. I learned that there are those who look down upon the individuals who clean up after them, but that is okay; snobbery only leads to dead ends and unnecessary dissatisfaction. I held my own and took care of issues that others did not want to deal with, and I am happy to have helped my school in this way.
