A great place to enhance your professional development skills
Assistant Director of Recruitment (Former Employee), Norfolk, VA – April 30, 2012
Pros: opportunity to travel to various places
Cons: compensation was low
A typical day at work involved working directly with parents and students, developing and managing the recruitment plan. I learn how to multi-task several office responsibilities. My daily responsibilities included planning the University's Open House, managing the admissions counseling staff, admissions processing staff, student worker staff and student – more... recruitment team, managing the campus visitation program, and developing a sound recruitment plan. I worked well with my co-workers to effectively accomplish the work flow and admissions goals. The most difficult part of the job was not having enough time to devote to the organizational activities of the student recruitment team. The most enjoyable part of the job was developing the student recruitment module. – less

Supervisor (Former Employee), Norfolk, Va – July 10, 2012
Cons: look under my review
When I went to work there the students were horrible because I wouldnt let them get away with stuff. My life was threatened and my tires were slashed. They would rob from the store that I supervised. They would cause scenes and I would have to call campus police constantly. If you care for your life dont go work there
Administrative & Office Specialist II (Former Employee), Norfolk, VA – June 28, 2012
Pros: professional career advancement, seminars, workshops and training.
A typical day at work is assisting faculty, staff and students. I learned how crucial it is to be a team player in any educational institution. The management exemplifies academic achievement and encourages the employees toward the same. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to work and obtain my degree from this institution.
A good workplace to gain experience for a better job elsewhere.
Clerical (Former Employee), Norfolk – May 4, 2012
Pros: it's a job with benefits.
Cons: low pay for the majority, for upper management very high salaries, and a few between salaries.
I don't know why people on this site give this employer such high ratings. The department where I use to work was pretty much micro-managed and other departments were laid back. The hardest part of my job is getting anything done around there. Management creates positions for their husbands, wives, friend, and relatives. This employer's working environment – more... is and will always be a place of socializing and gossiping. I enjoyed going to lunch to get a break from it all. – less
Mathematics Instructor (Current Employee), Norfolk, VA – December 26, 2012
I do start my typical day at work in a nice way. First of all I do greet my students and they normally respond in a nice way. I teach my students to make sure that they understand everything before I move on the next section. I do learn that my students do understand the what I teach and also do their homework. According to my students the way I teach – more... them help them a lot to understand mathematics.
I have passion in teaching and because of that I use different kinds of way to manage my class. Sometimes I use facial expressions from my student to help help some of them after class. In a situation whereby a student is frustrated in class, I talk the student after class and find a way to help the student.
I do get along with all my co-workers and because that my co-workers enjoy working with me.
The hardest part of the job is when some students are slacking and they don't come to class. If I face a situation like that, I do sit down with the student and tell the student about the importance of education.
The most enjoyable part of the my job is when I am teaching and it's because I have passion in teaching. – less
