Great work environment, Wonderful learning experience
New Student Orientation Leader (Former Employee) – Kirtland, OH – August 10, 2015
I simply loved working for Lakeland. The management did an outstanding job with explaining expectations, keeping on top of staff, and assisting the employees with the tools needed for success. A typical day at my job included; setting up the orientation space, checking in new students, running a seminar, meeting with students, providing a tour of the school and school website, assisting them when meeting with a counselor, and providing any additional help a student would need for the semester. With this job, I learned how to deal with all different types of situations occurring on the job. I also learned how to mold my standard agenda to meet an individual's needs. The hardest part of this job was dealing with individuals who did not want to be at orientation and would do anything to leave. The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing that I was one of the very first faces at the college that a new student would see. I took this responsibility very serious and loved that I could make someone feel comfortable at a new school.
Great management, learned new work skills, good staff
Had to work with many unhappy students
