Photo Lab Assistant
Photo lab Assistant /Student Assistant (Former Employee), Utica, NYMarch 19, 2014
Pros: get work done, fair pay, equipment knowledge
I actually found this job enlightening. I am a visual arts major with a concentration in photography. This job actually helped me understand the equipment used in the studio and the darkrooms. I would say the best part of this job was that I can have class and work at the same time, a lot of my classes were in the photography lab.

It was a work study position so I was mainly working with my dorm friends. I learned to maintain I professional attitude when speaking with individuals over the phone. My persuasion skills excelled. The hardest part of the job was reeling the alumni back in when I felt I was losing them.

Productive and fun workplace to tutor students
American Sign Language Peer Tutor (Former Employee), Utica, NYOctober 21, 2013
Pros: positive atmosphere for the students to find their comfort zone while studying
Cons: no cons
When I was done with my classes, I clocked in and I am always what my tutor has in mind for me to tutor them in order to improve their American Sign Language skills and to earn a very good grades. The co-workers at work are super friendly, intelligent, and teach the subjects very professionally. They are ready to give and expose their students in many – more... different techniques that will improve their knowledge based on their study and their future career. I must say that there was no hardest part of the job except the professor assigned me with some of the challenge tasks I must do with the students in order to improve their skills and to pass the courses. I was truly honored that I got to experienced as American Sign Language Peer Tutor. – less

Student too wide ranging in ability and skill levels
Adjunct Professor (Current Employee), Utica, NYOctober 21, 2013
Salary structure is very poor. No benefits are provided and adjuncts are insured that they will not teach enough hours to qualify for benefits. Classes are capped at 40 students although it is common to end up with only 30 due to attrition. Co-workers are excellent and share common disappointments such as students that do not have the basic skills required – more... for college. The core body of students is there for a purpose and they are very enjoyable to work with. A large number are simply avoiding the "real" world and seemingly have little interest in getting an education or a degree. – less

Adjuncts are seldom offered full time positions and maxed out.
Adjunct Instructor (Former Employee), Utica, NYMay 27, 2013
Colleagues that were adjuncts were highly educated and dedicated, enthusiastic instructors.

Students were the most enjoyable part of the job as each day they provided me an opportunity to make a difference in their lives.

Valued by my students.

Hardest part of position was ability to promote within being discouraged.

Internship for Networking (Former Employee), Utica, NYMay 17, 2013
Pros: experience
On a typical day at work we would maintain, install, update, upgrade, or configure networking devices. They would range from networking switches, access points, and networking hubs. I also had a great team of knowledgeable members that would give me advice if needed. They would give me tasks to achieve and once I was told what needed to be done I would – more... do it. I had to run many cables from one point of the campus building to the other side and also set up node connections in several rooms at the campus. I love just doing what I went to school for and its what I have done for a hobby since I was a young boy. There really is no hard part of the job. – less

Technical Assistant (Former Employee), Utica, NYSeptember 17, 2012
Pros: troubleshooting distance learning problems along with hardware
Cons: n/a
a typical day at work includes helping both teacher and students with there Distance learning A.K.A "Blackboard" and other computer related problems through out the day. I am always learning new things at my job mainly because there is always something new to be learned with a job like mine. I work with three others employees very closely with technical – more... support because we believe that it is much easier and much more efficient due to the nature of our jobs. The hardest part of the job would be trying to troubleshoot people's problems when all you have to go on is what someone is telling you over a phone, and the most enjoyable part of the job is figuring out what that said persons problem is and solving it in a timely manner to essentially save the student or staff member from losing thing such as grades and assignments through our "Blackboard" system. – less
