Basketball Camp Skills Instructor (Former Employee), Stillwater, OK – September 19, 2012
Pros: basketball, kids, fun and games
Cons: ends too soon
This is seasonal work, that I wish I could do year round. I've worked the Oklahoma State University basketball camp for the past 4 years. I supervise about 25 to 30 grade school aged kids in the dormitories, I'm responsible for seeing to it that lights out happens and that they are awake on time. I coach and teach them the fundamental skills of basketball – more... as well as team concepts. I love all the other coaches/counselors from all over different areas, they are great people. The hardest part of this job is leaving after camp is over and the most enjoyable part is the relationships you build in such a short period of time, that last until the following year when the same familiar face remembers you just like you remember them. – less

Currently looking into learned Qualtrics to aide professor in possible research/survey work. Very wonderful experience working with faculty. Administrative duties as a GA for professor's classes.
instructor (Current Employee), Stillwater – June 3, 2012
Pros: love some of the other instructors. great looking campus. good food.
Cons: attitudes of students and parents.
As an instructor, kids try to "get the grade" without doing the work and truthfully, they expect it. Parents are not behind the instructors some of the time, either. I expect the student to do the required work, show up for classes and on time and without an attitude. You do this here, you will do this on the job; well, if you show up at all. Past behavior – more... anywhere is a predictor or future behavior. Disrespect to your "bosses" in school will be the same for your bosses while in the workplace. – less
It is a challenging and interesting environment with abundant facilitied both for knowledge advancement and intertainment.
