It Was Enjoyable in General
Temporary Employee (Former Employee) – East Lansing, MI – December 31, 2017
I worked there as a clerical aide with emphasis on bookkeeping for two years. A typical day at work consisted of running reports and correcting transaction coding in the general ledger, entering payroll and completing monthly and quarterly tasks to be looked over by the higher ranks in various other departments associated with university finances. Management was laid back and competent in completing their job tasks, often able to come to solutions to problems themselves. The management was also courteous to both employees and department visitors alike.The workplace culture was relaxed as well. There were few flare ups in the fireplace, so to speak, and everyone tried to be friendly with one another and get along.
The most difficult part of the job for me personally was running monthly reports, simply because I found the the electric "hum" of the printer would almost put me to sleep. I am also not a very social person, so I ended up making myself look bad by passing up most of the company get togethers and not being as inclined to engage my coworkers as I was expected to be.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the lunch hour. It gave me a chance to "reset" my brain and return to the office chair with more focus afterwards.
Lunch hour, Friendly Environment, Convenient Location, Opportunity to Learn New Skills
The Assignment Didn't Last Quite Long Enough
