Wonderful place to work, but few full-time positions available.
Instructor & Translator / Interpreter (Current Employee), Kent, OHMay 12, 2014
Pros: great people, benefits, pay, and environment
Cons: mostly part-time positions
The ESL department at Kent State University is a spectacular place to work. The workload is reasonable, the faculty and staff are friendly, and the department is rapidly growing in size.
That being said, it seems to be difficult for the budget to keep up with growth, and the majority of the positions are part-time.

Good place to work. Great colleagues.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), Kent, OHMarch 27, 2014
A typical day at work includes going through the tickets that professors and students submit through our online systems. It might include giving them a call regarding the issue. Walk-ins also happen time to time for professors who are new to Blackboard and we would help them understand the basic environment of Blackboard and help them design the course – more... in a way they feel is best for them and their students. The colleagues are great. They were cooperative in the beginning of my job here as they would help me with any and every question I had. Everyone is really supportive and serious about giving the best customer service to the end user. – less

Student Assistant for KSU President (Former Employee), Kent, OHNovember 24, 2013
Pros: worked in a very prestigious office.
Cons: no advancement options.
Everyone I worked with would help direct me along the way as I needed help with either the printer or computer malfunction. A typical day was just coming in and getting the coffee ready, checking emails, classifying and filing documents, answering the phones and directing the caller to the appropriate office.

Marketing Research Assistant (Current Employee), Kent, OHNovember 19, 2013
Pros: this graduate assistantship is paying for my tuition
Very friendly boss who gives me projects relevant to my interests and supplementary to my learning experience. Typically I would be doing online research or assisting in gathering information from surveys to help professors with their papers. I am currently working alone in my office which is nice because I get to experience more of the work but unfortunate – more... because I end up being alone all day long. – less
