Assistant Professor of Mass Communication (Former Employee), Augusta, GAJuly 23, 2014
Pros: location, benefits, and long tenure.
Cons: changing adiminstration, long work days, not enough resources.
The hardest part of this job was the workload and changing administrators over the years. Another challenge is long meetings and not enough resources to help students meet academic and professional goals. This didn't stop me from leaving my mark at the school. This includes being a finalist for teacher of the year, starting new programs, and helping – more... students find gainful employment and graduate school opportunities. – less

TEAM WORK WAS GREAT
Campus Supervisor (Former Employee), Augusta, GAOctober 7, 2013
Pros: met a lot of people
Cons: a lot of overtime
Working there starting off it was a Great job However, when the School President Changed we got new people working there, Some of them would spend most of their time causing problems for long running employees in order to get them out of there. I worked with the Campus Safety Department, we had a strong team. My co-workers would always help out in time – more... of need. It was like one big family. That made the job fun. About 6 years ago when we got the new President, we did not get an increase in our pay. Nor did we get the supplies that we needed for our Department to run well. Over the years I was sent to various Police Departments for training such as Investigation, Weapons of Mass Destruction ,CPR and more. As a front line Supervisor a learned the importance making sure that Team Work was always first. I learned a lot about how to work with different personalities.

Counselor/ Freshmen Advisor (Current Employee), Augusta, GAApril 29, 2013
Pros: one hour lunches and a 7 1/2 hour work day with 401 k and medical and dental insurance
Cons: the institution pays for employee medical benefits but doesn't pay dependent insurance benefits
Coworkers are nice but the environment is stressful and management is incompetent in key positions. Participation is required in workshops and voluntary for many student activities and programs. Most positions are high rotation with employees quitting or being fired for any particular reason. I really enjoy helping the students solve problems and helping – more... with events. – less
