Campus Desk Assistant/ Resident Assistant (Former Employee) – Jacksonville, AL – January 7, 2016
They don't really pay you enough to put up with their weird ways of doing things and how peculiar that the upper management is. I liked this place to work at, however, it could have been 100% better to their employees. I would work here if you go to school there.

Jacksonville State University is settled in the foothills between Anniston Al. and Cedartown Ga. Bringing in many student and also known for its popular nursing and teaching program. Jacksonville State University is the diamond found in the rough for upcoming college students.
Working for JSU was a pleasure and very fun however; it was just a small starter job in college. Everyone learns from different people and their previous jobs. This was a great experience and a great place to start a working career. Working this job I met high classified people in the community and the area everyday. Sitting in on meeting and draft essay's for people had never been so fun and enjoyable. The best part of this job was being able to meet different people and attend the banquets and the activates that lobbyist get to do everyday. Learning from different people is never a bad thing. I actually like to believe you always learn at least one thing from everyone you meet.
Resident Assistant (Former Employee) – Jacksonville, AL – March 11, 2015
I assisted in helping residents transition from living at home to living on their own. In addition to this, I was a sort of mentor for several of the residents, assisting in their day to day lives, with any questions regarding campus life or school they might have had. In addition to this, I conducted many health and safety checks, where I was making sure that the girls were living in a clean and healthy way that benefited their well-being. This was a job that involved a lot of teamwork, as any work was usually done in pairs. I also developed a lot of creative programs in order to educate the students, and to build a sense of community on the hall. I loved this job, but I am graduating soon, and am no longer going to be able to be employed with the university. However, a lot of this job is customer service, and it has taught me important skills such as communication, data entry, and others.

Resident Assistant (Former Employee) – Jacksonville, AL – February 5, 2015
Being an RA, it is hard to seperate work life and life as a regular college student. However, it is a very rewarding job that helped me grow as a person. I learned how to communicate with people who have difficult personalities. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping freshmen girls adapt to college life and seeing them grow into the person that they are.
Jacksonville State University offers their employees so many great benefits in education, salary and teacher's retirement.

Jacksonville State University was a great place to work. I worked with some of the finest staff and professors at the university. I especially loved the students. I was always interacting with student workers and students who used the testing program at the Center for Individualized Instruction. It was very rewarding to see students succeed and watch them graduate. The summers were especially busy with three semesters and summer groups and camps to schedule.
