Awesome School for Graduate Assistant with Little distraction
Graduate Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) –  Clemson, SCApril 11, 2017
Great place to work, very social town...most distractions are away from the town.
Everyone always willing to help
easy part of the job is when you are assigned to grade and receive all necessary documentation needed to fulfill your job

Hardest part is when students try to undermine your authorities and complain with a nonvalid reason

Undergraduate Student (Former Employee) –  Clemson, SCApril 8, 2017
I didn't even work here, I just went to school here. This garbage website requires that I write a 150 character review so I am and this is all frustrating and stupid.

Marketing Intern (Current Employee) –  Clemson, SCApril 5, 2017
Neither of my bosses ever are aware of what's going on. They are usually in bad moods and expect me to know everything.
I've learned a lot, because I am self-motivated.
Pros
professional experience
Cons
bad managers

Clemson University is not your typical school, the classes you take here challenge your thought process and forces you to work with your peers to solve problems.

Productive and Inviting Workplace
Student Athlete Tutor (Former Employee) –  Clemson, SCMarch 13, 2017
Working with student-athletes can be an amazing but challenging job. A large majority of the time you are teaching students who did not sign up for tutoring. This means half of your job is finding creative ways to engage the student while the other half is teaching content. However, the staff is amazing and always willing to help you.
Pros
Can make your schedule
Cons
Student athletes have tight schedules meaning your hours are not always ideal.

Teaching Assistant is the Greatest
Teaching Assistant (Current Employee) –  Clemson, SCFebruary 16, 2017
You make your own hours and enjoy teaching students something new and cool in the field of computer science. Assembly language is one of the hardest to teach but the most rewarding. The professor that over sees the TA program can be difficult
Pros
make your own hours
Cons
max of 10 hours

Fiscal Analyst (Current Employee) –  Clemson, SCJanuary 9, 2017
I enjoy working at Clemson University and have learned how to expect anything at any moment. It's a very diverse workplace and there is always something new happening on campus. The majority of the workers are nice and compassionate. The hardest part of the job is advancing, since it is such a large establishment and there are so many applicants for each available job that is posted.

Living In at Clemson
Residence Hall Director (Current Employee) –  Clemson, SCJanuary 4, 2017
Clemson is a unique university to work for. It is a large STEM school with a lot of very bright students. A typical day at work is never "typical" because the nature of the job varies depending on student needs. Work life balance can be difficult as a live in staff member because living where you work can cause boundaries to be blurred. The department casual is relaxed and casual allowing employees to create their own work schedules as long as things get done. During times of crisis the department can be reactionary which can cause high stress for it's employees if not managed properly. Overall the department is good to work for and provides opportunities for professional development often.
Pros
Collaborative environment, flexible work hours, development of students, professional development, long breaks
Cons
Minimal work life balance, times of micromanagement, long hours
