NEIU experience
Tutor (Former Employee), Chicago, ILMay 4, 2015
Pros: College Campus visits for students that were free of charge
Cons: Student's struggles
Working through NEIU I would say that my overall experience was outstanding. The staff were highly devoted to their jobs and were also friendly. They knew what was required of them and they knew how to implement plans to ensure high levels of success. This job encouraged all the employees to participate and come up with various ways to solve situations. A typical day consisted of admiration by students, teachers, faculties, and other individuals. They acknowledge the work that was being done and attempted to assist in anyway possible. The hardest part of the job was thinking about how to help students that were struggling outside of school with their personal lives. Other than that the job was enjoyable and the constant meetings were highly beneficial.

Outdated with good benefits
Office Support Assistant (Current Employee), Chicago, ILFebruary 18, 2015
NEIU is a good place to start but there are no advancement opportunities. You do get 2 classes tuition free each semester if you want to advance education wise. You also get to use the tuition benefits at any state university. Other than that the benefits are good but the pay is not so much.

welcoming campus atmosphere, firm and dedicated professors, and friendly and diverse students
Teaching Assistant in "Business Statistics" (Former Employee), Chicago, ILJanuary 9, 2015
Pros: covered most of my graduate tuition, improved my communication skills, trained me to complete multitask under pressure.
A typical day at work: Besides taking my own graduate courses, I spent 4 hour/day in tutor office waiting undergraduate students who feel difficult with their "Business Statistics" study.

What I learned: I learned to communicate with students with different culture background and communicate with professors with different curriculum requirement. I learned to be patient and explain complex concepts using easy to understand terms.

Management: The professor who supervise us tutors are nice and firm. He obtained feedback from professors and students frequently and communicated with us timely. However, once he found that the feedback was unfair to us, he totally support us.

My co-workers: I learned a lot from my co-workers. I was impressed with their dedication during their work. Most of them become my good friends.

The hardest part of the job: There were too many students in the waiting list. I wanted the student understand the material thoroughly; in the meantime, I had to consider the time limit.

The most enjoyable part of the job: I was very satisfied when the students in front of me truly understood the concept and were able to solve problems by themselves.

Pros: good working conditions. i had my own office.
College professorship is a great career.

The other members (the ones I worked with are all retired) were generous with their skills and knowledge.
