Student (Former Employee), Ingleside, TX – January 3, 2014
Great School, great educators and great accommodations. I am not sure why indeed is having me add this to work experience because I went to school here. This school prepared me for life. I learned a lot and the classes were organized very well.
Financial Aid Liaison (Former Employee), Tampa, FL – December 25, 2013
Provide students with accurate information regarding the application process, loan counseling and their eligibility for State/Federal financial assistance, alternative financing, contracts and/or institutional payment plans. Informed students of their balance of their financial aid and when to expect the disbursement of their funds to their account.
Saint Leo University employed me and then made sure that I worked to the best of my ability. I was challenged and taught office work throughout my four years working here that I can now take to a new job and use my skills that I was trained in.
Resident Assistant (Former Employee), Saint Leo, FL – October 2, 2013
I had a blast as both a Resident Assistant and in my apprenticeship with the Intramural department. As an R.A., I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect from getting to know and help freshman in my hall to organizing programs for my residents. The pay and compensation was awesome but you do have an image to maintain and it is not for anyone trying to advance – more... their social status. My apprenticeship was purely a learning experience and I had an awesome time learning how to schedule sports leagues, teams, and matches as well as operate a staff. – less
I worked for the news paper and Athletics (Former Employee), Saint Leo Universiy – August 25, 2013
Pros: i could pick my hours. my co-workers were great. my bosses were full of knowledge.
Cons: some times it was hard to get as many hours has i wanted.
I really enjoyed working for both jobs I worked at SLU. I was able to do my school work and still work. Both jobs taught me so much and I'm grateful for the experience. But I graduated from the school so that is why I had to leave.
Office Assistant (Former Employee), Dade City, FL – July 6, 2013
Pros: gain experience, gain work ethics, meet people
A typical day at saint leo university was very interesting. I would finish up my classes; walk back to my dorm and put my work attire on and walk to work. Then there would be a stack of transcripts to scan. I learned a lot about office/ business techniques and how important it is to finish the tasks given in order to have a successful outcome. Management – more... was great every few minutes there was someone there to watch and see if every thing was going great. My co- workers were positive and great helpers. The hardest part of the job was understanding different questionnaires. There were students from Haiti who sent there information and asked questions and we had to copy and submit there information in the computer and it was hard to read there hand writing, but we managed to understand them. The most enjoyable part of the job was just gaining office experience. – less
Dumping Ground for Boarding School Brats Who Can't Get into a Real College
Adjunct (Former Employee), The lowest pit of humiliation and degradation – February 21, 2013
Pros: you only pretend to work.
Cons: they only pretend to pay you.
The HR department at Leo is a Kafka-esque nightmare of incompetent bureaucracy. The school relies on slave labor-- an army of poorly paid adjuncts who are essentially pariahs and personae non grata among full-time staff and faculty. The library director is a cranky insomniac misanthropist dictator who is absolutely loathed by his terrified staff; he – more... runs a pretty sloppy operation, as apparently some bored students filmed a hardcore adult movie in the university library on a late night in 2012. The school emphatically endorses broad egalitarian Catholic values, but don't be fooled; it's all about the money. If you can pay, your kid gets an A. The students are the absolute bottom of the barrel in terms of curiosity and motivation. Essentially, a Potemkin Village of a school run by a Stalinist regime of secrecy and paranoia. – less
