A typical day working in operations is hard to explain because no day was the same as the next. i learned to manage my time better while setting up for events.

This job was very fun and since it is located at Mckendree University u get to be around other college students and the work is not hard at all. the only bad part of this job is one is paid by their financial aids work study package. typical the most a student can make in a year is two thousand dollars a year and when you get close to that mark your hpurs will get cut or of u pass it you will be let go. Also one can only work 15 hours a week.
Adjunct Professor (Current Employee) – Radcliff, KY – May 1, 2012
If you enjoy learning you will enjoy Mckendree University. The students are military, civilian, veterans, retirees, and young adults who all have value to add to the learning. The hardest part of the job is trying to figure out everyone's learning style in a short amount of time. What I have learned is that some people will never be satisfied.
i love teaching, training, mentoring, and coaching.
Abiltiy to be flexible and helpful while instructing the students of the subject matter
Adjunct Instructor - Marketing (Current Employee) – Lebanon, IL – November 13, 2012
Taught an online class to help develop future leaders. Understanding the retail side of the business enables the student to look at products in a different light and creates a clear direction on the avenues of distribution and the other 4 Ps of marketing.

Most difficult part of the job was no face time with the students to see if they actually undertstood the concepts being presented.
Intramural Coordinator/ Lair Manager (Former Employee) – Lebanon, IL – January 30, 2013
This was a job I held for the most part during my entire college tenure. It was a work study job but it was a great learning experience and possibly the best boss I have ever had. My boss taught me many things about leading as well how to run operations within this area of the school. The individuals I worked with were students just like myself who all had the same agenda to get a a good learning experience but have fun while they did it.
great co-workers and boss as well as terrific learning experience
