The day would typically begin with a brief meeting with my boss Dr. Gant. She would inform me of specifics that i would need to pay special attention to, such as budget cuts, meeting times being changed. Then i would usually arrive at my work station where there are papers to be filed. All the while being attentive to any student/faculty trying to reach – more... Dr. Gant.

Admissions Counselor (Former Employee), Clarion, PA – July 23, 2013
Pros: environment, compensation, benefits, opportunities for growth and service.
Cons: winter gets pretty cold here.
Clarion University of Pennsylvania is, by far, one of the most student, staff, and faculty friendly environments that any professional could ask for in their journey. If the campus wasn't nice enough, the fact that it is in one of the most beautiful college towns in the world should only add to your interest in working here.

Resources are seldom scarce and the support you get as an employee is unequalled. – less
long hours, strenuous labor, occasional simple jobs.
Student Computer service tech (Former Employee), Clarion, PA – July 30, 2012
Pros: money to pay for every day expenses, nice co-workers
Cons: difficult bosses, poor communication between employer and employee, lack of respect.

Work would either consist of inventory a.k.a. taking stock of what we had laying around – more... or it would be maintenance on computers around campus making sure they were up to date and running properly. While seldom we had to change computers there was some manual labor involved. – less
Good place to work if your there for your studies as well

I felt like I didn't really belong as an intern, but – more... maybe if I was working there full time things would be different – less
