Student Work Study (Former Employee) – Kinston, NC – July 10, 2017
Buddy Reece is top notch, I couldn't have worked for and learned under a better individual. The school itself is a friendly environment with many great personal that are full of support. Granted my interactions were limited to a select few.
It's a state job. Benefits are excellent and pay is great. I only worked as an instructor for one class, but I enjoyed my time there. When starting, you do have to plan for going a couple of months until you get paid, then only one pay check each month. After that everything seems fine.

A typical day at work required massive paperwork. This allowed me to perfect my organizational skills by creating a system that was adopted by my colleagues. The management was proficient and my coworkers were the best in the world. The hardest part of the job was the paperwork but I thoroughly enjoyed exercising my creativity.
I loved my job working in the Business, Industry and Emerging Technologies Unit. My co-workers were exceptional. I enjoyed doing the budgets for the 35 departments. I learned how to do many accounting practices. I was responsible for ordering through our automatic order system. I also kept invoices balanced. I became proficient in Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel. I enjoyed helping all the students and instructors I dealt with on a daily basis. Management was very fair and easy to work with. The job was fast-paced and there were very few boring moments.
Great co-workers who appreciated what I did.
Sometimes I was too busy to take a break, but it was not that important to me.
The most enjoyable part of the job was helping other students understand material, there really wasn't a hard part to the job. My boss was a funny and nice woman. I learned how to maintain several activities at once and operate office machinery.
