Charter College is an okay company, the people I work with are cool and the students are a joy but can be challenging at times due to the demographic. A typical day at work for me is clearing files, meeting with students and collecting payments. There is always something to do, which keeps my day interesting. In the five years I have been with the company I have learned so much. Structure, the importance of hard work and dedication, and patience. Management is okay, I don't have a direct manager but used to until they dissolved the position. My co-workers are great, they all have good energy and knowledge that they continually bring to the table. The hardest part of my job is when I have to give not such good news to students regarding their accounts. It's hard sometimes to not put yourself in their shoes. But there are some enjoyable parts of my job and that is when I see a student understand how their accounts work. Or when they are successful in their program and they successfully graduate. It reminds me of why I am in higher education to begin with.
