Enoyed making positive changes that benefited the employees.
Pros: good salary, benefits, retirement plan
Cons: learning new supervisors, turnover
My day started at 8:00 am and ended around 6:00pm. The administration was new and the President wanted to ensure the employees needs were addressed so they could perform their jobs duties. During the course of any given day I advised and trained managers on organizational policy matters such as equal opportunity employment and sexual harassment. Conducted new employee orientation. Identified staff vacancies. Recruited, interviewed and selected applicants or coordinated interviews and selection with appropriate department heads. Maintained employee records, reviews and attendance tracking. Handled all benefits administration including insurance and FMLA administration. Provided employees with information regarding policies, job duties, working conditions, wages, and opportunities for promotion. Performed difficult staffing duties such as dealing with under-staffing, firing employees and administering disciplinary procedures. Conducted exit interviews to determines reasons behind separations. I learned the sooner you dealt with issues the sooner they were resolved. Management changed quite a bit but I had no issues adapting to the changes. I loved my co-workers. We really worked as a team which was very important. The hardest part of the job was so much turn-over. I had 5 supervisor in seven years. The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing the team of the Human Resources department had upgraded systems that allowed the employees to focus on doing their jobs of educating the students and not worrying about benefits or waiting in line to pickup their paycheck because one of the upgrades was direct deposit.
