The hardest part was getting the students to listen and do their homework without being disturb by other classmates. The most enjoyable part was seeing results that the students got on the homework because of me and my co-workers assistance.

Human Resource Coordinator (Current Employee) – Rochester, MI – April 10, 2015
The work environment is relaxed. The focus is strictly students and faculty; staff are not important (staff clerical, administrative professionals, maintenance, etc) I enjoyed the first 2 years because I was learning but after the 3rd year I haven't learned anything in my job. I was able to receive my Master degree but I am unable to advance in the company because there are no positions available. Employees generally stay in there positions until retirement.
An example of a good work environment (in my opinion)
Facility Services Crew Member (Former Employee) – Rochester Hills, Michigan – March 14, 2015
I only worked when I was scheduled, I got to see the sporting events for free as myself and other co-workers would often be floor security during sporting events. Before the sporting events we would setup whatever is needed such as folding chairs along the sidelines during basketball games for the basketball players, setting up volleyball nets for volleyball games, etc. Management was more than understanding seeing as we were college students and our education came first but they were very kind people as well. Probably the only hard part of the job would be the location, the sports arena sat on a hill and if there was a soccer game scheduled walking down to the field was kind of risky. I enjoyed working as I could work with friends and acquaintances but everything was pretty enjoyable.
good work environment, understanding management, free food

Graduate Research Assistant (Current Employee) – Rochester, MI – January 6, 2015
Oakland University's business program is comprehensive and its faculty is very collaborative and supportive. I've worked with the faculty over the past couple of years and it has been a rewarding experience from the start. I've learned a lot about corporate culture, the research and publication process, strategic management, and organizational behavior while working for Oakland, and the most enjoyable part of the job was the intellectual stimulation that came with my job responsibilities. As a research assistant I collected data, developed papers, and reviewed literature, all of which I really enjoyed.
