This was a fast paced 24 by 7 x 365 operation
Manager Call Center & Senior Telecom Consultants (Former Employee), Bloomington, InJuly 11, 2013
Pros: it was a very service oriented business with changing customers based on campus events
Cons: not being able to assist customers that needed assistance from another area
Prior to the advent cellular telephone service the IU Bloomington Call Center was a very busy place. Calls not only came in for campus phone numbers, locations and information but also for how to cook green beans or to ask if it was okay to eat a potato if the potato was sprouting. During the summer, there would be calls from the homesick campers just – more... needing a few minutes to talk to someone. We were also responsible for many of the after hours call out lists for various services.
I learned a lot about the campus and how other departments interact. We worked with other departments such as Residential Services and held in-service training sessions on the workings of the call center and how we interact with the other departments. The hardest part of the job was scheduling for a 24 by 7 by 365 operation in order to have the necessary coverage, but adjust it based on the events on campus.
The most enjoyable part of the job was observing the staff provide service to the customers. – less

Challenging position, fun to teach
Associate Instructor (Former Employee), Bloomington, INJune 27, 2013
Fun and challenging to teach laboratories at the college level while balancing graduate work and research.
Teaching provides you with the confidence to stand in front of many people and you must understand the material very well to explain subjects in multiple ways so students understand.

Great company, however many people in leadership should not be
Registrar (Former Employee), IU HealthJune 4, 2013
I enjoyed working for IU as a whole, however there are current managers particularly in Patient Access that spoil it for the company. Managers that look down on their employees, who try to hold their employees back, and have no interaction with their staff should not be in the positions their in. I believe management is more than dictating and earning – more... money, it's not just about serving the people or the patient population but it's about serving your people as well and unfortunately a few of the manager's in Patient Access hasn't figured that out. – less

Outreach Coordinator K-12 (Current Employee), INMay 15, 2013
As an employee of Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne, I have gained extensive knowledge of campus life as well as professional tools to help me perform my designated duties assigned to my current position. I have and continue to learn the importance of networking, development of engaging in the learning process through watching my colleagues – more... in their chosen career. Positive interpersonal professional relationships are a non-negotiable concerning maintaining a positive work environment. I love the work that I do because it empowers students with knowledge to pursue their dreams of completing the academic program of their choice. I thrive in high stress situations and problem solve should problems occur within any givin situation. I have learned that individuals respect and respond to the law of reciprocity in terms of being kind and clear when communicating as well as providing resources when needed. – less

Student Admissions Representative (Current Employee), Fort Wayne, INApril 14, 2013
Helping prospective students stay informed and give them an insight on what we offer here at IPFW. I learned how to work with others, lead a group of people on the right path, to be a leader, time management and overall how to be an inspiring role model. Management is ran pretty organized, there is usually never a misleading view on whats expected. – more... My co-workers are awesome! We all work so well together, thanks to our management team and coordinators. Hardest part of my job would have to be hearing a student choose a different school. Enjoyable part is giving tours and being a reason why a person decided to come to IPFW. – less

Flexible and Understanding
Desk Assistant - McNutt Residence Center (Former Employee), Bloomington, INFebruary 24, 2013
Working on a college campus is extremely different from "real world" scenarios but it was a wonderful experience nonetheless. When you work around people who are closer to you in age, it makes the environment more laid back and comforting. Working for IU is a lasting experience. You meet new people, learn how to deal with difficult ones, and make yourself – more... a better person in the process. – less
