Productive and team work
Graduate Assistant (Current Employee), Ypsilanti,MIMarch 24, 2015
Pros: Good food and conveyance facilities
Cons: Worker issues
I always had a new task and challenge everyday to overcome. I have learned to be good team worker. The management is good and supportive to entertain most problems that are faced by us. The colleagues are very proactive and supportive. The hardest part was to take decisions in quick time so as to minimize the production loss. The lunch part and tea part was most enjoyable as we all had conversations about the job and day status.

Good work environment, decent pay, tuition perks
computing lab assistant (Former Employee), Ypsilanti, MIMarch 18, 2015
Pros: tuition discount, newer buildings, positive environment
Cons: dangerous neighborhood and intensely political
Management was positive and encouraging. Pay was reasonable. Very liberal environment. If you don't agree with the politics, just keep your head down and your mouth shut and you will be okay. Campus is very pleasant but DO NOT go off campus. Ypsilanti is very dangerous.

Assistant Volleyball Coach (Former Employee), Ypsilanti, MIMarch 2, 2015
Pros: traveling
Cons: traveling
I had an office of my own in the athletics department. My boss and co-worker were awesome to work for. I learned that colligate athletics is a cut throat environment and no job is secure even after a winning coach on and off the court has been successful for the past 20 years.

Fun Work Place, Learned a Lot
Student Program Coordinator (Former Employee), Ypsilanti, MichiganDecember 8, 2014
Working at this job I was always learning new things. I worked in the Women's Resource Center and I always met new people and did different things as far as planning events. The staff here was wonderful and my boss was the greatest. She was really passionate about her work and you could see that in everything she did. This job also gave me plenty of opportunities to volunteer and give back and that's one of the things I liked most about this job.

Software Developer (Former Employee), ypsilanti, MIDecember 6, 2014
I always had to create work for myself. Nobody, including my manager really had any vision or direction for me or my team. There are lots of opportunities to tinker with things and learn new stuff but there is nothing to push you, no leadership, and no incentive to be good at your job.

My time at Eastern Michigan University College of Education was a great learning experience.
Lecturer (Former Employee), Ypsilanti, MIOctober 9, 2014
Pros: it was a continual learning experience.
Cons: just when students and i got comfortable with each other and the course--the semester would end!!
My time at the College of Education at Eastern Michigan University was very rewarding. I had tremendous autonomy but could also call upon others for advice or direction if needed. It was difficult work to teach 5 courses each semester, but the students are great and learned a lot, as did I.

ACT Prep Instructor (Former Employee), Ypsilanti, MIJuly 31, 2014
Pros: working with youth, empowering students
Cons: program ended fast
Every day would consist of a test for the students and I learned that it helped in preparing them for the test. I was so happy to hear back from them that it made a difference. I learned that finding ways to motivate students to take a test required me to listen to their desires for taking the course. I was fully supported by management with resources and materials. The most challenging part at first was finding a way to meet the students at the appropriate level because their capabilities varied so much. I enjoyed seeing the light go off in their minds when they grasped concepts. The experience was priceless!
