Comfortable atmosphere
Budget Operations Coordinator (Current Employee), Chicago, ILJune 30, 2014
A typical day involves entering purchase requests in order to produce a purchase order (P.O.) within a few days, paying for orders on the procard, tracking contract expiration/renewal dates, and paying invoices via procard or accounts payable. I've learned to remain calm and patient when others are panicking when they need something to be done right – more... then and there but sometimes not always possible. Management lacks in the communication field, which is a major part of management. My co-workers all have different personalities and I learn to deal with them on a work level in order to achieve the goal. The hardest part of the job would be not being able to have something done in a timely manner because the second or third party has yet to approve it. The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing at the end of the fiscal year that all requests have been made by the deadline and the yearly office gatherings when everyone needs a break. – less

Wrong Department Wrong Time
Payroll Specialist (Former Employee), Chicago, ILApril 21, 2014
Pros: great job benefits.
Cons: people who do not have the skills to lead.
The Payroll Department is not very creative or innovative in terms of technology. The payroll department is supervised by someone who's been in payroll for 20 plus years that is not use to change and wants to do things their way or not way. You are left left accountable or responsible to get your job done, but instead is micromanaged from the start – more... of day to the end of day. There is no leadership within the department nor is their any strategic planning. Policies and procedures are not set in place and there is no teamwork or communication amongst the coworkers within the department. – less

Programming and Outreach Graduate Assistant (Current Employee), Chicago, ILMarch 26, 2014
Thinking outside of the box ideas to solve a problem and learning new things has always been a great motivator for me. From every job I've had, I believe I've always been able to learn something new, or a new way to look at a problem.

In campus part time job
Course on line technician (Former Employee), Chicago, ILJanuary 5, 2014
I held this position for about half a year. As a university position the compensation and the advancement were at low levels and it wasn't exactly my field area.
But It was great from the point of view that it was my first job within the U.S. and I was able to go through it successfully, despite the fact it was too technical for me.

Circulation Desk Assistant (Former Employee), Chicago, ILSeptember 20, 2013
Pros: great supervisors, flexible hours, good learning experience
Cons: no opportunities for advancement. coworkers don't feel the need to do an equal amount of work.
DePaul University was a fantastic place to work with an abundance of caring coworkers and supervisors. The work itself requires an incredible attention to detail, but it's easy to get the hang of. If anything there wasn't enough for me to do, which can be a problem for a busy-body like me. But i always managed to find some sort of job to keep me busy – more... throughout the day, even if others decided to slack off. – less
