A typical day was always easy and relaxed. The tasks you do as an assistant aren't ever very hard. If you at least have a beginner level knowledge of filing and computers the job will be smooth sailings, You will like the people you work with and you get a relaxed work environment.
Great place to work but needs improvement in being a private college.
Public Safety Officer (Current Employee) – Bronx, NY – October 2, 2016
I work at Manhattan College in the Public Safety Department and enjpyed what I do but would like an opportunity to grow and Manhattan College isn't the place for me to do so. Overall, it's a great and friendly atmosphere but its open to the public which needs to improve on making it private with strict rules.
After a few years I can go to the school free.
Long walks to get around especially climbing up/down stairs.
Public Safety Officer (Current Employee) – Bronx, NY – September 10, 2016
Being a catholic oriented institution causes it to sponge out the idea of being traditional and one sided. Favoritism is heavily induced within the Public Safety Department and you are not well appreciated. The pay isn't enough for the games that are played at the job place. Union is a joke and half of the co-workers there are too low ambitious to do anything about it. Medical is good. M1 and M3 head officials are highly irrational and stern to not seek out the welfare of their fellow public safety officers.
Hour long lunches and medical
Favoritism, Mandatory Overtime, Terrible management and rude staff
Supplemental Instructor/ Tutor - Business Math (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – September 6, 2016
The tutoring center was a place for students with different majors could meet and become not only co-workers but also friends that they might not have made otherwise. The workplace is very relaxed but studious. A typical day included either showing up for an appointment someone had with you for a specific course, or showing up for your shift for the potential walk in students that need help.
Throughout Manhattan College's infrastructure are a myriad of individuals who have varied skill sets. Typically those responsible for maintaining the hardware and software of the machine will lack the understanding or know how to complete the work done by other departments, such as Operations, who primarily handle the day to day functions or operations of devices that computers attach to for use. At the end of the day everyone did their best to spread information when it was necessary, but it was clear some of the higher-up staff sat around and waited for some of the Helpdesk Team to clean up as much of the "mess" as possible.
Free Hardware when old devices break
The majority of the individuals that you interact with

Play-By-Play Broadcaster (Current Employee) – Riverdale, NY – December 8, 2015
The athletic department at Manhattan College was one of my favorite places to be. The relationships you build with everyone, from walk-on's to the AD, makes you feel like you're a real part of the success of the school. Each team had its own pros/cons, but overall, I will always have nothing but pride for the school.
Great work environment with a diverse group of co-workers

Academic Affairs Registrar Assistant (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – March 7, 2015
A typical day at work involved waking up early and getting there on time, and sitting down in front of a computer monitor and inputting various facts and figures about the students of Manhattan College, such as grades, credits, financial aid, etc. While it may seem tedious, the work was eased thanks to the lovely co-workers whom I had the pleasure of getting to know and work with; they truly made the job more fun and enjoyable. It is also worth mentioning that one could take an hour long break at anytime, though usually it was for lunch at about twelve or one o'clock in the afternoon. After a couple of more hours of number-crunching it was time to pack up and go home. What the biggest things I learned while working there were: a) time management and b) a positive work ethic.
Invitations to free lunches, could take break at anytime, lively crew
