Supplemental Instruction Leader (Former Employee) – Lincoln University, PA – January 5, 2015
I really enjoyed working as a SI Leader during my sophomore year at Lincoln University. I never realized how much I enjoyed playing a role in the development of my peers. Being paid was just a bonus. My only pet peeve was dealing with procrastinators who waited until finals week for my assistance in reviewing everything that was done the entire semester.

Lab Technician/Secretary (Current Employee) – Jefferson City, MO – May 14, 2014
Most days I prepare reports using Microsoft word and excel. I gather research for my employer to review and to apply to a given research project. I complete requests by greeting customers, in person or on the telephone; answering or referring inquiries. I maintain all the office equipment and supplies. I also collect samples when needed and prepare samples for testing. I work by myself for the most part and have found myself to be quite self-efficient. However, my supervisor is in and out of the office frequently. The hardest part about this job is not knowing when I will be without a job or when my hours will be reduced. It is budget funded only. I also do not get any benefits, and the work hours vary due to my supervisors own personal schedule. I like the fact that this job is somewhat in my area of expertise (biology/chemistry).
related to my area of expertise
no healthcare or other benefits, budget based, insufficient amount of hours, low salary

Tutor in Mathematics, Chemistry, and Biology (Current Employee) – PA – February 28, 2014
My typical work day always consists of one common goal and that is to go to work and completing all of the tasks to the best of my ability for the growth and prosperity of the organization or the company that I am working for. The contacts that I have made during my internship periods as well as during my tutor job with the Mathematics and computer science department will continue to be an integral part of my life, both professionally and personally for a long time to come. The polish that I have attained through interacting with both professionals and students will remain with me for my entire life. And finally, the knowledge that I have gained through research, attending hearings and meetings, and listening to the expert opinions of various people will continue to enrich my spirit forever. Management is an integral part of the success of any company. I have served in different supervision positions and I have always viewed myself as a team member as well as a leader. I am not the kind of leader who expects my team to go it alone. I am very much the type of person who always comes in and works with my members to ensure the work gets done when needed. I also motivate my team members and ensure they are performing their roles to their best ability. I always consider myself to be approachable and very open minded. These two characters helps me to work very well with my co-workers since I love hearing and sharing from everybody that I am working with. I am a good listener who has a lot of patience and I am always ready to listen to problems and challenges that are being experiencedmore... by my workers. My hardest part of my job is to make every member of my team work in harmony with each other and give the best towards the attainment of the organization’s goals. I really enjoy my work as I am able to interact with different people ranging from professional to students.less

Custodian (Former Employee) – Jefferson City, MO – February 13, 2014
I would get to work at about 2:30 am, Mon. thru Fri. I would jump rite on in and go clean my buildings. Usually I would get done at about 10:30 am or shortly after. then I would head home and get home at about 11:15 am. I would then have all day to do what ever I wanted. I loved working with all of my co-workers, the hardest part of my whole day was staying awake, but I managed and got used to the hours after working the third shift at my other job. I loved being able to work by myself and at my own pace.
Office Assistant (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – February 5, 2014
A typical day for me on the job would consist mostly of me doing paperwork and a little house cleaning. While working at Lincoln University I've learned a lot about office work. I learned how to fax papers, transfer calls, file paperwork, and most of all work in a group. I can honestly say that the management there is very supportive of me and believes in me. My co-workers are also supportive and reliable for the most part. The hardest part of the job for me was getting use to an office environment. The part I mostly enjoy about this job is meeting new people, and trying different work methods.
