Going through re-structuring of leadership
Assistant Professor (Current Employee), Cleveland, MSJuly 16, 2014
Pros: flexibility
Cons: compensation
I think it's going to be much better after the restructuring of leadership. We have a lot of new upper management. I enjoy the flexibility of the job but the compensation could be a lot better.

Very productive, positive, and wonderful atmosphere
Human Resource Clerk (Former Employee), Cleveland, MSJanuary 20, 2014
Pros: inviting atmosphere, family-oriented, opportunity to help individuals in a meaningful way
Cons: unfulfilled promises to advance
A typical day at work involved answering phone calls, processing employment applications, posting jobs, and managing filing. I learned how to properly post job postings, process & direct employment applications, and file employee documents. Management was very clear and direct. I knew each and every day what my daily tasks were to be. My co-workers – more... 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. – less

Learning Environment while writing about local news
News Editor (Current Employee), Cleveland, MSDecember 2, 2013
Pros: meeting with important contacts around the city and university
Cons: having to be very stern with staff to get stories in on time.
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 – more... relaxed environment, and encouraged productive criticism. – less

Coordinator of Transfer Recruiting (Current Employee), Cleveland, MSNovember 19, 2013

an interesting job for college adults
Service/Tech Crew Member (Former Employee), Cleveland, MSApril 25, 2013
Pros: hands-on, very educational, rewarding and meaningful work
Cons: no definate schedule, general lack of hours for work
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 – more... 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. – less

Graduate Assistant (Former Employee), NigeriaMarch 2, 2013
This is a University were I thought as a graduate assistan after my master program.The difference is discusing with adult and experiencing human behaviour teaching 300 students in a lecture theater.I was able to manage a population of that size because each person knew why he was in school.
I worked well with people and we assisted each other.
I love – more... talking to people reaching out and teaching. This may have resulted from my parents being Teachers.When you see people you have thought becoming somebody it gives you great satisfaction. – less
