Office Assistant (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – March 21, 2017
I performed a variety of office duties including Xeroxing, researching, operating a multi-lined phone system, organizing lesson plans, making travel arrangement, maintaining appointment calendar, drafting invoices, spreadsheets and promo fliers /mailers. Assisted in planning events and setting up meeting spaces, It was very important to prioritize what needed to be done in order to keep the dean on schedule. There were deadlines for everything and presentation was very important. I enjoyed the fast pace of the job it kept me busy, and appreciated the learning experience.
Clerkship Coordinator/Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Macon, GA – June 16, 2016
Overall, a work day at Mercer University was fulfilling and productive. Enjoyed the freedom to accomplish my daily tasks without being micromanaged. Was allowed to redesign and improve our 3rd year clerkship rotation manual. Attempted to collaborate with other clerkship coordinators on a collaboration project to enhance all clerkships. This was an great opportunity to mature, learn new ideas, to shadow other greater leaders and to serve the students, faculty and others across our University. Great experience I would not trade.
Enjoyed interacting with the supervisors, medical students, fellow staff, and faculty.

Assistant Professor (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – November 22, 2015
An average place to work with nothing special to stand out, a high degree of academic politics to navigate. There is great interest in promotion of those who can bring in outside money and contracts far more than those who are good teachers. Good teachers often go unrecognized.
Enjoyable place to work, compensation not the highest available
HUMAN RESOURCES ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Macon, GA – August 29, 2015
Mercer University is an enjoyable place to work. You will work for a reputable institution with highly educated, professional individuals. However, the compensation package is not very high for those who do not hold a Bachelors Degree or higher. Medical insurance and retirement package are not the most desirable, but not terrible.
VP of HR is great to work for, highly professional
Health Insurance was not the best available, Compensation package is mediocre
Beautiful Campus with great team to work with : 5 - Stars

Clinical Instructor (Former Employee) – Macon, GA – June 9, 2015
My day starts at 9 am and ends at 5 pm. I cherished everyday that I was at work knowing that I will a difference in the patients' life. My co-workers are fun to work with and are always looking out for each other. They always find a way to uplift each other. The hardest part of the job was/is knowing that my contract ended and I had to stop my job. The most enjoyable part of the job is when I know that I am coming to work to make a difference in someone's life.
