Senior Secretary (Former Employee), Davie, FLJanuary 15, 2013
Pros: everything
Cons: i cannot get back in
I loved working here and reluctantly left due to mandatory student teaching to complete my degree. The staff was excellent, the benefits were great, the hours were great, and working with college students was great. I have searched for another opening since I left. There is very little turn around in my job experience because it is such a great employment opportunity. They pay could be better, but the perks make up for it.
