Front Desk Receptionist (Current Employee) – Kalamazoo, MI – June 24, 2017
There was a very friendly atmosphere at work but you were also expected to do your job well. Jen Bailey is great at her job. Management was great the schedules were always out early and she communicated with employees well.
Phonathon Caller (Former Employee) – Kalamazoo, MI – June 16, 2017
The job kind of sucked, but the people you talk to around you make it worth it. It's a bit difficult to guess what you're going to get out of it because sometimes managers change and they completely change their attitude towards rules and the like.
Tour Guide (Former Employee) – Kalamazoo, MI – March 28, 2017
I gave tours to prospective students, learning how to communicate to a wide variety of people across the country. My supervisor was a wonderful mentor who taught me how to be self assured. Overcoming the initial public speaking hurdle was difficult, but once I found my niche I gained confidence.

Working through Kalamazoo College as a Civic Engagement Scholar at Kalamazoo Central High School's Heartbeat program was an amazing learning experience and extremely fulfilling.

Zumba Fitness Instructor (Former Employee) – Kalamazoo, MI – March 9, 2015
I enjoyed working as a Zumba Fitness Instructor in the Office of Student Involvement at Kalamazoo College, it was not without its frustrations. Due to their fitness schedule, I was only teaching Zumba once every three weeks. The schedule changed again, and I was only teaching once every six weeks. I was happy to work with these changes, then the day and time of the fitness classes changed another time. Unfortunately, I had a schedule conflict (class during the time I was supposed to teach) and gave the College plenty of notice. Instead of working with me, they opted to find another Zumba instructor.
Able to gain Zumba teaching experience
Unusual schedule, no willingness to work with other's schedules
Laboratory Teaching Assistant and SI (Former Employee) – Kalamazoo, MI – May 21, 2012
As a laboratory teaching assistant, I made sure all of the reagents and supplies were ready and organized for the students. I've prepared solutions and instruments for use as well as instructing the students how to use them properly. It was a lot of fun getting to know the students and reviewing the concepts from classes I had taken a few years ago.
