Student Accounts Associate / Cashier (Former Employee), Saint Davids, PASeptember 22, 2014
Help Students and family with figuring out account balances.
Work with Accounting Office on balancing account summaries

I am more detailed oriented then I thought, accuracy is a plus

Management was wonderful in trying to make sure errors on accounts got corrected.

Co-Workers were the best a person could have

Hardest part of job was calming parents down when an error occurred on there child's account and how to pay the balance due.

The most enjoyable part was my coworkers and being able to bounce questions off of them to figure out the best way to answer questions.

Active Work Environment
Assistant to the Sports Information Director (Former Employee), Wayne, PAMay 26, 2014
Pros: great people, sports, announcing, good work environment
Cons: tedious tasks
When I would go into work at my old university I was involved in the Eastern University Athletic's department. I would walk into work and always be greeted by the friendly staff there, and would help get the information (programs, promo's, etc) ready for whatever games were happening that week. I learned how to work in a team atmosphere, how to write for the public, how to telecommunicate as well as communicate with people older/younger/and higher up then myself, and I learned how to edit video. The hardest part of the job was having to input that statistics for every game I am not a great numbers person so figuring out all of the percentages was a very time consuming task. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to verbally announce most of the women's sports as well as the baseball games. This was by far the most enjoyable part of the job and the part that intrigued me the most.

The Hardest part of the job is not making the goals we had set for our department.

Marketing Research Green Emissions Project (Former Employee), Saint Davids, PAMarch 8, 2013
I worked with a class of Marketing Majors to conduct a survey to see if students were willing to carpool and take other modes of transportation, to save emissions. It was a short assignment, but was cool to see the results. The hardest part of the job was coming up with questions that would be the most useful.

Development Programs Coordinator (Current Employee), Saint Davids, PAMarch 6, 2013
Pros: excellent team and students and a great place to learn and collaborate
Cons: not much room for growth and compensation is not encouraging
A typical day at work is filled with stress, but the team and the students I served, made it all worthwhile. I loved the opportunity to collaborate with senior leadership, and the effortless way faculty and leaders teach you. My coworkers were more like a family, we genuinely cared for each other, and that was evident to outsiders. The hardest part of the job was knowing there was no room to grow beyond a certain level, and the level of compensation. The most amazing part of the job, was the reason I selected this opportunity in the first place, the wonderful students I served daily.

Pros: friendly people; long christmas break
Cons: no christmas bonus, little training
I enjoyed my time at Eastern, at one of the urban campus in downtown Philadelphia. I wouldn't trade it for the world. I met great people and grew a nice network there as I completed my master of science degree. I only worked part time but full time employees receive tuition reimbursement.

Productive and rewarding place to work at department level. Very entrepreneurial
Director of Advancement & Administration (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PAAugust 29, 2012
Pros: work
Cons: limited internal staff development and advancement opportunities
Was a very illuminating experience to be involved with academia having come from a corporate background. Was surprised at the lack of accountability at program level across programs in general and across higher education institutions. Co-workers were great but senior level management had been around a little too long and new ideas and innovation were tough to implement as channels and venues for doing this were limited due to the organizational culture. I learned the value of collegiality and great insight into higher education in general.
