Student Assistant (Former Employee) – Norfolk, VA – May 10, 2017
I had a receptionist position, so I would work at the front desk everyday. I would answer phone calls, enter data for my supervisors using Excel, create posters for their research, and file records. The faculty was really laid back and helped whenever I needed their assistance. The job was not hard at all. Sometimes, faculty members would bring snacks for everyone, so it was great.

Adjunct Instructor (Current Employee) – Norfolk, VA – May 4, 2017
Working for Old Dominion University has been both frustrating, as well as exciting. On the one hand, administration and higher ups don't really seem to give much thought to the well-being of adjunct faculty members. On the other hand, the opportunity for growth within the classroom through professional development opportunities, and the prospect of teaching to specific learning communities enriches the job environment exponentially.

Resident Assistant (Current Employee) – Norfolk, VA – March 30, 2017
The job is pretty much 24/7. Anything can happen at any time & we just have to roll with the punches. Learned how to handle crisis situations, juggle multiple issues at once, and how to deal with many different types of people. At times, supervisors were unorganized; policies changed very frequently which was often inconvenient. The staff as a whole was great, we had good opportunities to bond with each other.
