Director of the President's Office (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PAApril 28, 2014
A typical day consists of updating staffing, payroll, Tech scheduling, schedule exchanges, process new hires, schedule meetings, order food for meetings and special occasions, paperwork, tuition reimbursement and whatever comes my way. I learned how to be a hard-worker person , i loved my co-workers are very good to cooperate with,they were great people – more... we were like a family together.

The hardest part of the job is the lack of leadership and game playing amongst employees. – less

Gallagher Fitness Center Manager (Current Employee), Philadelphia, PAJanuary 5, 2014
Pros: networking, some pay, recognition
Cons: work/study schedule, not enough money
A typical day at work included swiping people into the gym and handing out equipment. However, a typical weekend at work included shaking hands with local celebrities as they entered with the news for basketball games, networking with business owners and knowledgeable people, meeting new parents and students as they toured the facilities for the first – more... time, and hanging out with some of the the coolest co-workers ever known.
I also was the person who designed and updated the website for the fitness center on the school website and it was always fun doing research on fitness and coming up with designs and layouts to catch people's eye. – less

Fast-paced and fun!
Sports Information Assistant (Current Employee), Philadelphia, PADecember 23, 2013
Pros: best seat at the game! always center of everything.
Cons: low pay
My job is to provide statistics for high energy and fast paced collegiate games at Philadelphia University with the opportunity to do stats for neighboring universities. I love the fast paced energy of the job. As an inputter, I have the responsibility of typing various numbers and letters into a computer program which then translates those into stats – more... for the players. The 20 minute halves of basketball can either feel like 5 minutes or an hour depending on the intensity and the amount I have to input into the computer. The job is always different in a sense and the energy of a sports gym is incredible. I couldn't imagine a better job. I could imagine a better paycheck. – less

Pros: longevity, home-like environment, and job security.

I enjoyed my my job mostly due to the student interaction, the nurturing atmosphere and being able to provide safe campus life. I learned lots of different aspects of security and how to manage an entire campus of co-workers, and students. My co-workers made the work hours easy because of the comradery in the work place. Most difficult time was the – more... seasonal weather and graduation season because of safty issues, for the most part i enjoyed my days at philadelphia university. – less

Resident Assistant (Current Employee), Philadelphia, PAOctober 18, 2012
Free room and board in return for enforcing policies and planning programs. Great people to work with, but often gets overwhelming when tensions get high. The best part is the relationships that are built within the Residence Live community.

CAD Lab Assistant, Fashion Design (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PAOctober 9, 2012
Pros: easy work
Cons: disgusting at times, not utilizing my full potential
I sign in and say hello. Then, i go into the fashion sewing studios and sweep. While i am sweeping i clean up under the tables. Usually there are a few half full bottles and cups of coffee and water, so i have to dump those in the trash, plus i have to get rid of scraps of fabric and pattern paper. Rarely, i get little projects and things to do during – more... the day. Previously i just sat in the CAD lab and helped students with adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, but there are rarely many students with questions for me to help them, but i got the same pay as i do now. – less
