Pros: part-time schedule
Cons: no breaks, no benefits, extreme deadline expectations, no room for advancement.
A typical day at work: Booking appointments for students with Counselors, Answering phones, greeting students and referring them to Advisors.
I learned to assist staff and students in a through manner, in order to ensure a pleasant college experience.
My co-workers were professional, confident, and compassionate to students and other workers.
The hardest – more... part of the job was that the part-time staff were given duties that counselors did not want to do themselves, along with the regular job duties, and were reprimanded when we did not complete a particular assignment by a specific deadline. This made the job extemely stressful.
The most enjoyable part of my job was helping the students, and developing a rapport with them. – less
