I typically check in with my supervisor, complete tasks that they require, then continue to ask other co-workers if they need me to complete any particular tasks. I have learned a lot about efficient communication, effective and efficient decision making, and consistency in the area of customer interaction. The most difficult part of the job would have – more... to have been the times in which Deadlines needed to be met, and all of the other office employees I work with would at times begin to show signs of stress and frustration. I always understood what they were experiencing, and was willing to do what I could to help them, however, their frustration and stress was not stemming from any particular task that I was qualified to help with. My favorite part of this job would certainly be the fact that I had very flexible hours, being a student worker this allowed me to keep up with grades as well as work and. I also really enjoyed the feeling of being trusted with the responsibility to oversee the completion of tasks that were vital to the responsibilities of the office to the campus. For example, I am responsible for making sure that when graduation ceremonies are conducted, there must be enough diplomas prepared and presented at ceremonies. – less

Front Desk Clerk in South Hedges (Former Employee), Bozeman, MT – May 23, 2013
Pros: time to study, meet a lot of people
Cons: security shifts are boring and long
Not a whole lot to sacrifice for this job. It's perfect for students who are just looking for a way to make some extra money. You can do your homework whenever nothing is going on, the tasks aren't too much to handle. All in all, it's a decent job.
As a Graduate Teaching Assistant, work was mainly determined by my schedule. I taught one three credit course a semester as well as four hours a week in the MSU Writing Center. I was generally free to conduct myself as I saw fit. The pay and benefits are on the low side of graduate-level fellowships, but it is possible to live on it.
