Senior Secretary to the Registrar (Current Employee) – Cleveland, MS – July 18, 2016
Great staff and it is a great environment to work. The pay not so great. It is 1 of the top employers in the Cleveland, MS so that is an advantage, if you are able to work for DSU. We do get some holiday breaks like most colleges in universities, so that is a plus. We are off for about 2 weeks at Christmas, and we get all Federal Reserved Holidays.
Easy and fun experience around great co-workers and different sports
Internship (Former Employee) – Cleveland, MS – December 16, 2015
Depends on the day or the event that is going on that day. once I make it to work I usually have few photos to rename and edit before posting them in back of the School website. Setup up for game days whether soccer, football, basketball, etc. also edit highlight videos and posting them on social media. we have to manage our time when we have more than one event at the same day. co-workers are helpful and we always find a way to cover everything and help each other. hardest part about the job is staying all day working different events and going from one to another. but the most enjoyable part about the job is being around sport and thats what I love the most.

I enjoyed everything about Student Business Services at Delta State University. I enjoyed everyday of work. I gained much experience working within the diversity of SBS. My co-workers/bosses were the most loving people. I could never complain about them. When I was instructed to do something, they made sure I thoroughly understood what was asked of me. Nothing was hard about the job.

Great place of employment in Mississippi. However, we're one big Family here at Delta State University. The academics and sports staff members has a real good relationship. We have the same goal(s) for the students that attend DSU.

Custodian (Current Employee) – Cleveland, MS – July 5, 2015
a typical work day is hard work and long hours of standing. the supervisor is not a great supervisor at all. anything that you talk to him about in private he, he always go back and tell other employees about what was said in private. I read a quote but i don't have a source from it. "A bad manager can take a good staff and destroy it, causing the best employees to flee and the remainder to lose all motivation". I think that this is a really great quote. Bad management should not be allowed in a work place.

My job was very fun and commendable. I enjoyed working with the public and being a multi-tasker. The most important thing about the particular position I was able to help people and provide services that would better help their physical lives. I also helped my co-workers whenever my help was needed. For the most part, I helped anyway whether they needed the help or not.

We me twice a week to assign stories and to check with staff to make sure stories were coming along in a timely manner. Editors edited stories before sending to copy editor. The hardest part of my job was making sure news stories came in on time. When they did not, I had to stay up very late editing. I enjoyed working with the staff. It was a fairly relaxed environment, and encouraged productive criticism.
meeting with important contacts around the city and university
having to be very stern with staff to get stories in on time.

I have really enjoyed my time working at the University. I work closely with the next generation of students who lead our world. I take great pride in the job I do. We have a very structured methods of recruiting freshmen and transfer students for various academic programs across numerous disciplines.
I learned that students need more attention past the recruitment period. I would love to transition into student affairs and work with students more closely and over the course of their entire college career. Through my experience, I have developed a love for the students.
travel, company car, per diem
large recruitment area, college location, lack of technology

I knew each and every day what my daily tasks were to be. My co-workers were excellent! They were not only concerned about my work-life but my life outside of work as well. We were like a family. The hardest part of the job was turning down applicants who may have missed the deadline. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping unemployed individuals receive a job.

Service/Tech Crew Member (Former Employee) – Cleveland, MS – April 25, 2013
A typical day at the BPAC was, in exclusion of show days, involved cleaning the back areas, ensuring the safety of electrical systems, and maintaining the premises. Show days were a full 12-hour affair that included setting up proper lighting and sound ques, ensuring the safety and care of props and set, as well as maintaining a proper space for the performers to prepare. The management was well taught and always had something for us to do. My co-workers were college-aged adults like me who enjoyed theatre, so we often got along fine. The hardest part of my job was the lack of proper scheduling and defined hours. One day I would be there for only a few hours doing really nothing of interest and the next I would be there from dawn to far after dusk working tirelessly on sets. My favorite part of working here was that I worked with theatre and art people and I very much enjoyed their company.
hands-on, very educational, rewarding and meaningful work
no definate schedule, general lack of hours for work
