Watched cameras daily to ensure safety on campus grounds. The management was well they worked with my school schedule. I learned how to dispatch to safety officers out in the field. The hardest part of the job was working some graveyard shifts and then not have enough sleep before attending class.

Computer Purchasing and Services Coordinator (Former Employee) – Tacoma Wa – October 23, 2015
Pacific Lutheran University has a great atmosphere. Teamwork was a daily exercise. I managed client hardware calls and purchased computer equipment. I supervised 4-6 student worker technicians, teaching them how to fix hardware issues. The hardest part of the job was working with coworkers who went outside of their job and tried to fix issues out of their realm and we had to explain to the client what happened and then fix the problem. Most of the coworkers were great with a positive attitude. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to help our clients with their computers problems. Working with some great people.
Great benifits, being able to take the time off at short notice if needed, culture of the the campus
Not being taken seriously by the boss, being blamed for other peoples mistakes.
Research Assistant Intern (Former Employee) – Tacoma, WA – February 26, 2014
Although this job was considered an internship, I also took classes and received a full semester school credits to complete a minor in Psychology. I was assigned readings and assignments to complete on my time off, which were closely related to the duties I was performing at the hospital, therefore it was really intense and challenging three months. But, overall, I really enjoyed working and learning in a highly professional environment
Working in a highly professional environment, and getting a real life experience.
Residence Hall Front Desk Worker (Former Employee) – Tacoma, WA – February 13, 2013
I worked with PLU in other capacities than just this job over the course of my four years as a student, but this was the most recent one. A typical day working the front desk for the dorm involved monitoring each person coming and going from the dorm to make sure residents and their guests were safe. Handling of a "money box" and regulating the use of dorm equipment occupied a significant amount of daily time as well. Co-workers were other dorm-mates, so we were able to all become close co-workers.

Director of Content Development (Current Employee) – Tacoma, WA – September 18, 2014
Great place to work, and good people to work with. Culture is changing a bit though, and less warm than it used to be. Love working around the students and their hope and passion. Learned that there is life after journalism.
Library Circulation Assistant (Former Employee) – Tacoma, WA – April 25, 2012
You do a lot of grunt work, but it is full time. You learn how to communicate in a business manner. The management takes some getting used to, but after some time you get used to it. I would recommend this job as a last resort. It can get extremely boring and repetitive after a month.
