MATHEMATICS TUTOR/TEACHING ASSISTANT (Current Employee) – Statesboro, GA – June 26, 2014
A typical day at work consists of me sitting in a computer lab of about 100 computers and students come in for help with mathematical concepts. I am required to know everything from College Algebra through Calculus 2, but I also know Intro Statistics & Calculus 3. I have learned many ways to bring others to a complete understanding. My coworkers & I work together if we are presented with a topic we may not be 100% sure of, but we all have the goal of helping the students. All of my coworkers are undergraduate & graduate students. I enjoyed seeing the smile on the student's face one the lightbulb went off in their head.
Locksmith (Former Employee) – Statesboro, GA – February 14, 2017
Not the place to start a career for advancement. After five years of being the only one who new my job I was not qualified to supervise myself. In fact they rehired a previous employee that I had trained to be my supervisor for which I had to retrain him to tell me what to do. Basically wait until your older and ready to settle down before you work at this job. Oh and don't expect management to help they they're all waiting to retire.
Administrative assistant (Former Employee) – Statesboro, GA – January 24, 2017
My typical day at work was making copies for teachers and sorting mail. I assisted any needs by teachers and visitors. The most enjoyable part was meeting the teachers needs in a timely manner because they would be so happy.
Graduate Assistant (Current Employee) – Statesboro, GA – January 13, 2017
Working as a graduate assistant is both hectic and rewarding. You get to work in an atmosphere that allows for you to help undergraduate students learn as you learn from the professionals. My co-workers are great and the bosses are always encouraging. I love my job!
Custodial Floor Care Technician (Former Employee) – Statesboro, GA – January 11, 2017
Generally fine from day to day, but during special projects things would be highly disorganized and extremely stressful. Coworkers tended to complain a lot, souring the experience. Eventually it became a chore to simply complete the day's activities due to over-complication of procedures. Upper management paid little heed to the concerns of the staff beneath them. My direct supervisor did her best to ease the burden and maintain a positive attitude, but even she was generally exasperated with the upper management. Overall, not an experience I remember fondly.
Short commute, sufficient pay to meet all my needs, some friendly faces
Disorganization, stressful working conditions, pervasive negativity from most coworkers
Prep Cook (Former Employee) – Georgia – January 10, 2017
Georgia Southern was a very fun and productive place to work. My co-workers where very interesting,because some of them where students and came from different countries.What I've learned about this job how to manage my time. The hardest part of this job is when the college had visitors touring the school. Then they all came to the cafeteria. And we had to serve them. But management team made sure that it was well organized and ran smoothly. The most enjoyable part of this job was meeting the different diversity type of people that I meet and gladly served.
Student Officer (Current Employee) – Statesboro, GA – December 16, 2016
A typical day work consisted of running the cash register and interacting with customers on a daily basis. The management at this job could have been better. The most enjoyable part of the job is being in your own space and not having someone over your shoulder all of the time.
Desk Assistant (Current Employee) – Statesboro, GA – December 15, 2016
I love working at the Russell Union. It is a fun and energetic place to be and I have some of the best coordinators to work with. Getting hours and balancing that with my school work is great. The school does a good job to make sure that academics come first not the other way around.

Visiting Assistant Professor (Current Employee) – Statesboro, GA – November 7, 2016
It is a student oriented university. All faculty members are very dedicated to their work and work together for the overall progress of students. The work environment is very productive and pressure free.
Director/Manager (Former Employee) – Statesboro, GA – October 14, 2016
The university was undergoing a period of tremendous change both in leadership and taking on new initiatives. It never really grasped the necessary planning an resources necessary to operate a for profit public business. Our department refused to to follow through on proposed initiatives to partner with the business college and collaborate with their small business startup team, mostly out of obstinance. A year after leaving the $6 million dollar center sits almost empty on a daily basis.
Great idea that could have become a model for universities nationwide.
Lowballing financial and resource requirements has turned the facility into a white elephant.
Great environment for someone wanting to work in collegiate athletics
Athletic Ticket Office Event Staff (Current Employee) – Statesboro, GA – October 4, 2016
I learned what goes on behind the scenes of a football game. I was shown the different jobs associated with the Georgia Southern University ticket office and how it encompasses the skills of marketing, customer service, and communication. Management was great and very helpful. The most enjoyable part was being able to ensure the guests/fans have a remarkable experience at our stadium.
