Assistant Men's Coach (Former Employee) – Norfolk, VA – July 9, 2015
A typical day includes getting travel ready for the season. Also working out players and practice. I learned working at norfolk state what not to do in running a collegiate program. The management of the athletic department was not the best. Members of the staff lost there jobs due to money issues. Meaning that the athletic department wasn't doing any major fundraising. The hardest part of the job was doing multiple full time jobs within a job. The most enjoyable thing i liked about the job was being around a sport which i love and the competition.

Office Assistant (Former Employee) – Norfolk, VA – May 17, 2015
Nothing about this job was typical. With this job I can be doing one project today and something totally different tomorrow. That was fine with me. I did whatever my supervisor ask of me. Majority of the time I wrote the minutes she recorded earlier that day, file a lot of different paper work and folders, make copies, create labels, fax, etc. I learned how to use a typewriter... a couple of times. My supervisor was extremely nice and flexible. She didn't mind me asking questions and I had lots of them. Nothing was hard about the job. Since I was so far away from home I enjoyed seeing my supervisor everyday because she was so nurturing like my own mother.
Assistant Professor of Mathematics (Former Employee) – Math Dept – May 1, 2015
This school has probably more administrators than teaching faculties. The enrollment has gone down about 20% for the last two years due to management mistakes. But the faculties were cut more than 20% and administrators virtually all stay with their fat salaries. The way it is going, in the near future, if there is any future for this school, there will be one administrator for every 5 students! (And may be one teaching faculty for every 25 students.)

Adjunct Faculty (Current Employee) – Norfolk, VA – January 29, 2015
Working for an academic institution is a tough job. You get to work with diverse groups of people including faculty, staff and students, which gives all employees the best working environment. A typical day involved work on multiple projects including website redesign, the President's Annual Report, the university magazine, special events and ever-present crisis events. I learned how to work with different generations of people and I will be eternally grateful for that experience.

It gave me experience with disabled students. It also gave me more experience on data entry as well as reception work. I would be the only person in the office sometimes but it never slowed down or failed. I always stayed on top of new information and how to assist the students.
administration needs to be replace with people care about their employee
