eLearning help desk assistant
eLearning Technical Support/Help Desk (Former Employee), 1600 Maple St, Longview, WA 98632June 28, 2015
Pros: Schedule was very flexible.
I worked for Lower Columbia for three years as a part-time employee. I would help teachers and instructors everyday solve problems and get them set up with there online courses. My management was amazing they trained me really well and were very helpful when I had any questions. My co-workers were very friendly and easy to work with. We had really good communication and supported one another if one of needed help the other would not hesitate to assist. The hardest part of my job was when we had to switch learning management systems. We had a very short time to learn the system before having to having to help with training the staff and students. The best part of my job was helping student and teachers with a problems. I really enjoyed finding solutions to problems that I didn't know the answer to right away and later coming up with a solution.

Computer Lab Technician (Former Employee), Longview, WAJune 27, 2015
I was responsible for upgrading and maintaining client computers, and assisting students with computer lab assignments. I learned how to setup automatic upgrades, documentation, and management of PCs as well as working with others. I also learned how to manage my time efficiently, and how to read body language when working with others. The hardest part of the job was not spending too much time assisting students. The most enjoyable part of the job was being allowed to make task related decisions.

Pros: flexible hours(based on school schedule), paid lunch, consecutive breaks, great work enviroment

Wake up at 8 am and get to work around 10 am there would check recycling to see if anything needed to be put away then get tub of tools. Find a cart to use and head to the managers office to check priority work then some side jobs. Head out to the work site while picking up litter and spot weeding when needed. If workers already there pick up where they need help. Breaks were every 2 hours and a paid lunch if worked longer than 5 hours. At the end of the day check with manager if work was satisfactory and meeting. Sign out then put away tools and attire then retire home
