Insightful and overall a great learning experience
STUDENT RESEARCHER (Former Employee), Orangeburg, South CarolinaNovember 15, 2014
Pros: schedule to work was open, supervisor had an open door policy, had professor's number to call if help was needed.
Cons: some experiments took longer than my available time, lab supervisor left at certain and had to perform experiments with no supervision
A typical day in the lab would be to immediately check on any experiments i rand the day the before for results. I would go over my lab book and record any new data. From there, I would check to see what my next step would be and confirm it with my lab mentor, if he was available. After that, I would proceed with the day's experiments. Working cohesively – more... with the other students in lab was very easy; we respected each others space and on certain occasions would plan our experiments around each when ever we needed to use the same equipment so as not to cause any unnecessary conflict. The hardest part the of the job would be to run out of time to finish a certain experiment due to class lectures or exams. One of the most enjoyable parts of the job was participating in our biweekly journal club; I enjoyed this because it was a time to put the knowledge we learned in lab and class into use. It was also a time to ask questions and learn, so I gained knowledge that made it easier for me to understand when i took the class that taught the same concepts in the future. – less

So difficult it will teach you to appreciate a good working environment.
Student I.T. technician (Former Employee), Orangeburg, SCJune 17, 2014
Pros: not much really
Cons: difficult environment, everyone expects to have you repair everything on the moment...
As a student IT technician I developed a great relationship with my supervisors, professors and staff. The hard part was that because of the volume of work orders to deal with they would pile up and take a considerable amount of time to complete them. I was able to adquire a great deal of experience in computer repair, installation of computer software – more... (antivirus, math and science, and many more) as well as installation of computer hardware (ethernet lines, switches, routers, printers, phone line repairs, replacement of RAM and Hard drives, troubleshooting of computers, projectors, and much more). A challenge that came with the job was the training phase, since there was none I had to learn on the go, however this gave me a lot of confidence in being able to not only repair overall computer equipment, but also I was able to learn how to repair smartphones and game consoles. – less

A great place to work
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Orangeburg, SCJanuary 13, 2014
Pros: the free programs that was offered to the public
Cons: affordible benifets.
A typical day begin by prioritizing the days work schedule, handling all incoming calls, assisting the dean in accomplishing that days task. Greeting and directing visitors , assisting faculty, students, administrator, and others coming into the office. The day include planning and executing for programs, i.e., lyceums; managing budgets, ordering supplies, – more... producing reports, etc. Management was great, it was a task that was shared according to ones ability to handle different projects and activities. It took team work to maintain a good working with co-workers, it was the only way to produce a project. The hardest part of the job was getting not becoming up set when things did not work out as planned due to cancellations and/or foreseen issues and having to start the planning process all over. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing a project come together without any problems. – less

Perkins Loan Counselor (Current Employee), Orangeburg, SCSeptember 30, 2013
Pros: working with students and parents
Cons: communication is not the best
I enjoy working with the students, parents and staff. The work is not hard it but it is steady. On a typical day I make phone calls to borrowers and receive phone calls. I learned that my day is what I allow it to be, so I set the pace for my day. I make a list of what I plan to accomplish daily and go for it. My most important thing is to treat others – more... the way I would like to be treated and that is with the utmost respect, secondly, I learn to make it a habit to listen to what others are saying and always smile. – less
