Wonder place to work and grow as a professional
Student Ambassador Supervisor (Current Employee), Newport News, VANovember 23, 2014
Pros: team dinners and incentives
Cons: short breaks and mean clients
A typical night at work, starts with setting up the call center and gathering supplies for staff. I learned how to manage and train staffers to be university ambassadors. The management at this job is fairly flexible and supportive. My co-workers are equally as talented as I am and also very prompt. The hardest part of our job is maintaining a positive relationship with disgruntled alumni. The most enjoyable part of this job is making the callers feel like they make a difference in the Christopher Newport University community.

Unorganized workplace and management
Security Officer (Current Employee), Newport News, VAJuly 15, 2014
In addition to only having part time hours for security, the managers have little to no contact with you. This leads to many officers being improperly trained which results in slip-ups happening.

Great Environment and Nice Interaction with Residents
Front Desk Assistant (Current Employee), Newport News, VAApril 23, 2014
A typical day involves checking the sticker residents' ID cards when they hold it up to the person at the front desk. This helps to ensure that only students have access to the building and to keep the campus a safe environment for staff. I also respond to the inquiries of residents. This could be anything from answering questions about housing, to issuing lock-out codes when students are locked out of their dorm rooms to giving advice about which classes to take.
