I was in charge of maintaining the mac labs in the art building.
Lab technician (Former Employee), Bartlett CenterJanuary 23, 2013
Pros: made my own hours.
Cons: limited number of work hours i could record.
Being in charge of the mac labs included printer maintenance and upkeep, mac maintenance and upkeep, management of software and the art building network, and providing tutorials for teachers or their within the art building. Majority of the my time was spent helping out other students with their problems and address them in a manor as quickly as possible. – more... I worked with one other student and we split our time equally on duty. I was managed by the head of the Art Building but his knowledge of networks and mac maintenance was limited so myself and my colleague had near free reign on the job. The hardest part of the job was also the most enjoyable. Being on call 24/7 made for some crazy hours because students were in the labs at all hours of the day. I got to meet lots of students in other departments and it kept the job interesting. What I valued most from this job was time management. It taught me to juggle a work and personal class schedule. I had to be sure to budget my time well, because it was impossible to predict when my help was needed. – less

Productive, supportive and family environment
Graduate Assistant of the OSU Equestrian Team (Former Employee), Stillwater, OKJanuary 9, 2013
Pros: family environment, very helpful and adjustable
Cons: tough environmental working conditions, early hours
From Monday to Friday, I drive to the OSU Equestrian Barn at 8:30. I start the day with unlocking the offices and locker room. I then create a schedule to assign a particular horse to each team member and post it on the bulletin board. The team arrives at the barn around 9 where I help them prepare their horses for practice. In the absence of the head – more... coach, I am in charge of conducting practice. I usually teach for 2 hours. When I am not needed for practice, I am in the office filing paper work and answering phone calls. I keep track of all the medical and personal information of teammates in folders and organize them alphabetically. When OSU Equestrian hosts NCAA official recruits, I am in charge of showing them around our facilities as well as OSU's campus. I also shuttle recruits to and from their hotels and the airport when needed. The best part about my job is that I still get to be involved with the team I spent 4 years of my undergraduate with. Throughout my experiences as being a graduate assistant, I've learned time management skills and leadership skills. While I was on the team, I was more focused on winning our competitions. As a graduate assistant, I've learned how to use my leadership skills to guide younger teammates by providing personal counseling and social support. The hardest thing about my job is the working conditions. OSU Equestrian's barn is not air-conditioned or heated so weather can be troublesome. – less

fun workplace with self-motivated labmates
Research Assistant (Current Employee), Stillwater, OKDecember 25, 2012
Learn how to solve technical problems either by myself or through discussion with other lab mates. Find the balance between course work and research. The hardest part is to find the novelty in our own research area. The most enjoyable part is to solve all kinds of bugs or problems during implementing our ideas. It is challenging but we all enjoy it.

My OSU Experience
Lab Assistance (Former Employee), Stillwater OklahomaDecember 10, 2012
Pros: worked around my class schedule.
Cons: wish the job had had full-time openings and opportunites.
I loved my job, mostly because I was in a learning environment and was taught various lab procedures. The people that I worked with made the job what it was, I was very blessed to have an amazing boss. Every day we might be assigned a new task to carry out, and it was no problem. We achieved goals as a team by either working together on a project or – more... individually. I feel like the working in the lab was a success because we were able to be productive and efficient. – less

Great place to work
Heavy Equipment Operator (Current Employee), Stillwater, OKOctober 24, 2012
Pros: great benefits, great retirement plans, lots of paid days off and holidays, lots of vacation time earned and sick leave builds up quickly staff appreciation lunches
Cons: carers more about what new building they are gonna build and the beautification of the grounds, than giving their employees regular pay raises and or bonuses.
Great place to work and retire. But chances for advancement are long in coming if at all. Very flexible with hours if you have kids in school activities. Some supervisors are just here for a paycheck so they don't look out for their employees. Knowone recommends anyone for pay raises at the Physical Plant. Most generally if you want to advance here, – more... its not what you know or how qualified you are, but who you know. – less
