Desk Assistant (Current Employee), Jersey City, NJ – May 21, 2014
Pros: times are flexible
Cons: you can only get a certain amount of hours
A normal day at work would consist of me signing students and guest in and out as they walk into the building to go into the dorms. I have learned since i have been working here is that you have to speak up and put your foot down because people will try and walk over you.When it comes to management they can be very strict at the same time flexible and – more... willing to work with you depending on the situation. All of my co-workers i tend to stay in good contact with each other as far as work goes so there is usually never any miscommunication when it comes to people relieving people for their shift. The hardest part of my job is probably trying to get to more hours or trying to move up. The most enjoyable part of my job would have to getting to meet some new almost everyday – less
