It was a work study job, and I did enjoy it, and the people around me was great. The hours that I worked was not a lot which was great because I could still get homework done and hang out with friends.
I loved every minute of my time at Freed Hardeman. I loved playing baseball there and getting to spend time making new friends. The road trips were always so much fun to being around the guys and just knowing how much fun you were having.

Student Assistant to the Athletic Trainer (Former Employee) – Henderson, TN – July 21, 2015
This job was a part of my financial aid, it coincided perfectly with my major, I was able to put all the things I had learned in the classroom into practice.There was no such thing as a typical day, everyday was different depending on injuries that occurred, game days, practice schedules, etc. I was blessed to be surrounded by a great boss, friendly co-workers and many other people who wanted to help me succeed. The hardest part of the job was not always knowing if or when I would be working that day (hours changed depending on the athletic team's practices and games), the uncertainty and inconsistency was an adjustment.The most enjoyable part of the job were the game days, where I got to see the athletes put their great talent and hard work to use and knowing that I had helped them get there. I loved interacting with the athletes, and the people I worked for and with, it was a fun place to work and a very rewarding experience.
A typical day consisted of helping customers with whatever they needed. I learned how to operate different types of machinery and electronics. The management was very good. I didn't really see many of my co-workers, but those that I did encounter were pleasant to be around. The hardest part of the job was shelf-reading. The most enjoyable part of the job was checking out books.
They were random hours, but I mostly worked during the afternoon. I would do many tasks including moving shelves and books, open and close the library, help students study, check out and organize books, recycle books, decorate and plan for events. I learned the true meaning of being organized and knowing how to handle situations without getting stressed. The management was good, they were very thorough about what jobs needed to be done and if you were working. I usually worked alone, but whenever co-workers came in, we worked well together and we got a lot of tasks done before our hours were done. The hardest part of my job was making sure that the books were in place and no one would mess them up whenever you left. The most enjoyable part of my work was getting to plan most of the events and decorating or cooking for those events. I also enjoyed that I was able to get coffee when I needed it.
Telemarketer (Former Employee) – Henderson, TN – June 1, 2014
Working as a telemarketer taught me social skills, telephone communication skills, and customer service techniques. I learned to communicate different ideas to varying types of people via telecommunication. This job taught me self-control by practicing keeping my opinion to myself while talking over the phone with difficult callers. This job also taught me how to be more persuasive in my communication skills and getting my point across quickly while maintaining rapport with callers.
A lot of work gets done and it is always done with excellence and efficiency. Quality of work is always above standards for the size of school. Co-workers and friendly and extremely helpful. Sometimes the work can seem overwhelming, but if you communicate your concerns there is always someone there to lend a hand.
Students, faculty, staff with old-fashion, biblical values.
