Athletic Trainer (Former Employee), Newton, MA – August 18, 2013
Pros: fun staff
Cons: red tape
My coworkers were great to work with. The tough thing was working for a college whose mission and values didn't always line up with our department. We were promised things that never materialized (like renovations to our office, etc) and the budget department was known to go back on its initial word.
The students were great to work with though and – more... overall it was a good experience working here. – less

A typical work day would be going downtown to the post office to pick up new mail that has come over night. After picking up the mail it would have to be sorted after the mail is sorted it will be placed in the student’s mail boxes. If we have factuality’s mail, we will be delivered to their office around the campuses. I learned how to use Microsoft – more... office word, and excel. I also learned how to use the scanner to scan packages in order to log our inventory, of the packages. My co-workers where other students of the college we got along inside and outside of work. The hardest thing when working would be scanning the packages and getting them out as fast as possible while making sure that the customers got the customer service they needed.
