Typical Day
Building Manager, Shift Supervisor (Former Employee), Camden, NJJanuary 17, 2014
Pros: flexible, oppurtunity to develop job skills, consistent hard work rewarded
Cons: no outlook, eat if time (not scheduled)
Each shift has a giant list of events that need to be prepped for each day, this can change at an instant requiring you to be on your toes. Events that are focused on clients outside of the university are in need of constant need and customer service. Upper Management doesn't have plans in place for downtime and that is where the job can come off the tracks.

Enrollment Services Representative (Current Employee), Newark, NJDecember 5, 2013
I handle 11 different program for the School of Nursing and the School of Health Related Professions. I handle the entire application process from the time the applicant submits the application, to the time they get accepted/rejected.
I also speak to many applicants over the phone and instruct them on our school.
I have learned a lot of administrative knowledge even though, I had a previous job similar to this one at Kean University.
My co-workers are fabulous but I feel the need to branch out and enhance my career life.
The best part of my day is when i help a student and they are overly joyed with gratitude.

Photolicious Photo Lab
Photo Lab Monitor (Former Employee), New Brunswick, NJNovember 27, 2013
Pros: independence
Cons: dangerous
This is just the best place to work if you're a photo nerd like I am. I was tasked with organizing, and creating an inviting space in which students could process their photos 24/7. I had no coworkers other than the professors who taught classes on how to develop photos. The hardest part of the job was the hours. I was there all the time. All the students had my cell phone just in case there was a problem or a chemical lost its potency. The best part of the job was having access to the lab any time I wanted and being able to print using the best chemicals.

Good to adjuncts
Part Time Lecturer, Department of Religion (Former Employee), New Brunswick, NJNovember 11, 2013
Pros: great flexibility, good remuneration for adjuncts
Cons: benefits weak, cannot develop into full-time position
Working as an adjunct instructor, I found Rutgers University to be accommodating and generous. Apart from the continued fiction that adjunct instructors are not part of the faculty, this position allowed flexibility for class times and most of the support necessary to carry out the task well. Students, staff, and colleagues generally friendly and caring. The most difficult aspect was the fact that the position was, and always would be, part-time. The most enjoyable part was working with bright, and sometimes enthusiastic, students.

interesting place to work
Assistant (Former Employee), New Brunswick, NJNovember 1, 2013
I worked in only one division/area of the university, so I can't speak to it overall, but where I was had idiot managers out of touch with reality and the place was a total mess.
