Great place to work
Assistant Director in Information (Former Employee), Chicago, Il.November 6, 2014
Pros: flexible schedule
Cons: manager experience
People are nice. I leaned a lot about IT. IT Managers could use some professional development. Most difficult part of the job is not getting burnt out because there is always stuff to do. However, managers are flexible and try to provide a stable working environment.

Assistant Men's Basketball Coach (Current Employee), Chicago, ILMarch 27, 2014
The job title of assistant men's basketball coach is just a title. The work and the time of being a full time coach stretch way beyond just win and losses. There is no such thing as a typical day in my workplace. The best thing about being a coach is that I get the chance to help influence the lives of other individuals. When my office door opens and one of my player's come inside there is always an element of uncertainty. There are problems other then the things that happen on the court. Regardless of how my day is going at that particular moment I have to be able to give sound advice to whatever situation that one of my player may have. Being used as a outlet to life is far more rewarding then anything I can imagine!

While working at North Park, I came to further understand how to grow an athletics program within the realm of a blossoming university in the city of Chicago. I would highly recommend NPU to any prospective job applicant, athletic or otherwise.

Incredible workplace with extensive learning opportunity.
University Athletic Training Intern (Former Employee), Chicago, ILJanuary 18, 2014
Pros: extremely rewarding to partake in an athletes path to returning to play after and injury, highly positive relationships with instructors, athletes, and coworkers, extensive learning environment.
Cons: very hard work, non-stop activity, some unpleasant injury experiences.
The instructors are beyond compare. Their level of competence exceeds any standards and it shows with their ability to constantly present you with a teaching moment. A typical day consisted of working along side a Certified Athletic Trainer, performing on-field and clinical injury evaluations, diagnosing athletic injuries, and creating treatment plans for student athletes. I assisted in the development, – more... monitoring and modifications of physical rehabilitation programs. I performed modalities and treatments including heat, ice, electrical stimulation, ultrasound, massage, and a variety of taping, bracing and splinting techniques prior to and after athletic competition. One of the hardest parts of the job was multitasking and time management, being able to ensure the safety of multiple athletes at one time, while still observing and learning. As well as monitoring effective communication between Certified Athletic Trainers, coaches, student athletes, parents, team physicians, and other medical personnel to ensure the best treatments for athletes. My favorite part of the job was by far building relationships with my athletes. Also, the hands-on experience helped build confidence very quickly and allowed for extensive learning opportunities. – less

Pros: computer access, admission to winter break housing. flexible hours

A typical day a North Park Univeristy is a limited amount of calls to be tranferred, a lot of security issues with lockouts and escorts, and most of the time complete silence.

good college job
Arabic Tutor (Former Employee), Chicago, ILJuly 8, 2013
Pros: easy money, do homework if students dont show up.
Cons: boring
not much to say about this one. I tutored a number of kids who would sometimes show up for help. I got paid for being there anyway. A year ago, I was getting paid a lot more for 3 tutoring sessions a week but the school eventually cut it down to 1 session a week.
