Opportunity to get my hands dirty
Student Worker in Technical Theatre Department (Former Employee), Grayslake, ILJanuary 28, 2015
Work days started as early as 7 AM and ended as late as 7 PM, especially during summer musical productions. Days included anything from organizing props to building elaborate sets with different woods and metals, utilizing anything from spray paint to a pneumatic stapler. My management was intent on creating a friendly work place environment, while also completing tasks efficiently and with precision. The hardest part was learning how to use the different tools and equipment, but that was easily overcome with practice and slowing down to speed up. The most enjoyable part was the process of building, and the reward was seeing it all come together.

Great people all working together to continuously improve all aspects of the college
Office Associate - Facilities Department (Former Employee), Grayslake, ILJanuary 26, 2015
Pros: excellent benefits
Cons: very limited breaks and lunches, always on call
Working as an office associate in the facilities department at the College of Lake County in Grayslake, IL for almost 9 years (some time spent as a student worker) taught me so much about teamwork and most of all about people in general. My department was in charge of all of the building's grounds, maintenance, heating and cooling, and custodial. A typical day at work involved general office duties and providing direct support for the Facilities Director and other department supervisors. This job required strong customer service involving all different kinds of people, including but not limited to staff, faculty, students, vendors, outside event coordinators, and various members of the community. Every day was different and I loved the constant multitasking. The hardest part of the job was also in a way the most rewarding part as well - having to think on your feet in a quick but effective manner in solving various issues, dealing with difficult people, and most importantly following through with each and every person to ensure the customer was happy and the job, whatever it may be, was done right.

Workign as a Service Desk Analyst
Data Analyst (Current Employee), Grayslake, ILFebruary 21, 2014
Pros: good breaks
Cons: i do not really have one
A typical day at work for me would be to answer the phone calls and make tickets, as well as catching up on some homework. I learned how to deal with unsatisfied clients. My co-workers were very respectful and responsible. The hardest part was probably getting all the things down pack and knowing which caterogory they fall under. The most enjoyable part was being able to get my homework done.
