Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Boca Raton, FL – August 28, 2013
A typical work day for me would be to always show to work 15 minutes before my shift starts. Once its time to clock in for work, i do my normal routine of grabbing a walkie, locating the room keys and locating the EMS. Once i've read over whats happening on that specific day, I decide what room to began setting up or taking down first. I usually work alone but when I team up with others, they usually stick by my side. If the day is filled with lots of task to complete i sometimes break the group up to knock out the work load to make it easier on us.
Team work, no micromanagement, everyone is reliable and takes ownership.
Slow paced partners, too many task at once for one person when working alone.
Working for housing at FAU was an overall great experience. I had the opportunity to meet people from all over the world and established connections with those people. That was honestly the best part about my job. Everyday was different. We had different goals we had to fulfill on a weekly and monthly basis. This includes, but not limited to, designing floor decorations and programs for students, enriching the students with abilities to push themselves to work harder in school and to learn how to be a better person. The management in the housing building I worked in was very professional but also enjoyed having fun with our staff. The management above was not so great. They did not keep their promises and continually made changes to our protocol and job contract without letting their employees know.
I enjoyed the interaction with the students and many departments within the University. The Colleges were helpful as was the supporting offices and Directors. I was promoted several times and always enjoyed interacting with my Director. He respected my opinion and sought my input for any changes coming our way. I always believed that my boss should not be "blindsided". I kept him in the "know" at all times.
I learned patience, improved my people skills and was respected by my immediate staff reports as well as by the other Managers.
Each Day at FAU was new. We never knew what was going to happen. Sometimes we spent half a day helping a distressed student. The best part of my job was when I had to deal with an upset student or parent and I was able to solve their problem and send them away with a smile on their face. That really made my day. It was my strong suit.
The work environment was good, The position I held allowed me room to learn.
Admissions Coordinator (Former Employee) – Office in Davie, Florida – April 7, 2016
I was able to work in various departments and I was given great responsibility. I can say i really learned many skills.The management was good. All of my co-workers did what was expected and required of them.I had to drive to college campuses and the driving could be hard. The last time I went to a community college I was assigned to drive from Davie Florida to Orlando Florida in one day. The most enjoyable part of my job was meeting and talking with students, and helping them to make life changing decisions.
