Student Clerical Worker (Former Employee), Chicago, ILMarch 26, 2014
Pros: more exposure into office lifestyle
Cons: sometimes could be tiring if it is not a busy day
My typical day at this job had busy days and very laid back days. Sometimes I would be running a lot of errands or sometimes just in the office answering phone calls, greeting people, and doing tasks asked of the chairperson. Everything was school-related so I enjoyed it. The hardest part of the job was making sure all the papers were filed right and – more... put into the right mailboxes because they mostly were tests and quizzes that were needed for class the next day. – less

OFFICE SUPPORT ASSISTANT (Former Employee), Chicago, ILJanuary 2, 2014
Pros: 1hr 30minutes lunch
Cons: contract job ended when summer ended
A typical work day at Chicago State University consisted of chain calling admitted students, assisting admitted students get enrolled and acquainted with their college adviser. I would file papers and set appointments for the advisers. I learned how a office is ran and how to keep busy when the office wasn't as busy.Management was helpful to me with – more... ideas of how to get things done or more professional ways to get through to the students I was chain calling My co-workers were college students like myself with lots of energy and good ideas to tackle daily task.The hardest part of the job to me was the chain calling because I wouldn't always get the responses I was looking for. Some of the people I called didn't speak English which was difficult.The most enjoyable part of the job was helping the students that came into the office and, seeing the relief after they'd tackle the process of enrollment. – less

Fascinating place to work
Escort Manager (Former Employee), ChicagoNovember 17, 2013
Pros: we do not enjoy lunch until we are done with that shift
Cons: we have ten munites break after every four hour in the shift
I will meet with the outgoing Assistant Manager and get instructions from her on what is left for our group. I will then organize my group on what we have for the day. I will call the office if there is anything challenging that I cannot figure out. My co-workers and I works like a team. The hardest part of the job is when many people are shopping and – more... trying to pay at the same time. it then mean pulling people from their regular job to help in the register. The most enjoyable part is handing over to the nest group and clocking out for the day to rush home and do my college homework – less
