Data Entry/Work (Former Employee) –  Nampa, IDMay 1, 2013
A typical day of work was 9am to 5pm. I would print, copy, and mail over 300 letters a day, operate data bases like Janzabar and Datatell, and audit paperwork. The management was the Enrollment Specialists, and they were great and efficient. My coworkers were patient and provided great customer service to all the student at the College of Western Idaho. I enjoyed every aspect of this job.
Pros
learned new skills, hour long lunches, and fun events to attend
Cons
laid off due to running out of financial funding

Adjunct Faculty (Current Employee) –  Boise IdahoJanuary 23, 2015
I work as an adjunct faculty so supervision is minimally required. Other faculty are professional and kindly. I enjoy teaching, student interaction and contributing to the field of academics and plan to continue my academic career for as long as possible.

The downfalls as an adjunct include no insurance, no advancement, and unpredictable job security.
