Turn over was to great. Hostile environment
Dispatcher (Former Employee), Pittsburgh, PASeptember 4, 2014
Pros: co-workers were great
Cons: no lunches can't leave your desk
It had the feel of a all boys club. It was like stepping back into the 1960's. They were quick to write everyone up and then write a procedure. The union was always filling grievances. They would fire one person for sleeping on the job, then look the other way when someone else did it.

Helping students either on phone or in person regarding their financial aid process, bill, how to get loans.
Learned to work well with everyone, feels good to help others,
Co-workers are great. We all work well together.
Hardest part is if there is no way to help a student stay in school and
be successful.
Helping the students that we could help felt good.
