Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Salem, MA – April 9, 2016
Taught English classes as an adjunct from 2006 to 2008. Administration was easy to work with and gave me tons of autonomy. Students were a breath of fresh air compared to the high school kids I had during the day!
Student Worker (Current Employee) – Salem, MA – March 1, 2016
Working in serials and acquisitions, I learned a significant amount about working in an office setting. I became even more sufficient in Microsoft, learned data entry, invoices, etc. I had fantastic management who were very supportive and helpful to me as a student worker, and worked alongside kind, extremely helpful and gracious people. I thoroughly enjoy working for Salem State University Library and have nothing but good words and thanks to give to them for allowing me to work while in school.
Student Laptop Specialist (Former Employee) – Salem, MA – February 15, 2016
I really enjoyed working for the school. I thought I would never have a job in this kind of setting. I liked more of the fact that I had a job right on campus and didn't have to leave till I was done for the day. I enjoyed working with my college's and boss. Along with students, understanding the work flow and environment. The job was pretty straight forward with assisting students with laptop support for the school's network and providing Microsoft Office. We also provided hardware/software repairs for students who purchased laptops through the school.
The student support office also helped with the Orientations for incoming freshman and transfer students. We would give presentations about Student Support for what our services were and how we could be of assistance to students around the campus. Also we had lab attendants in each of the computer labs throughout campus, usually in the mornings and evenings.
This atmosphere really provided me with confidants to be in different areas of campus to not only help students but sometimes faculty. We would help support not only laptops but mobile devices as well, generally with email and sometimes connecting to the network. I'm very thankful for myself to have this opportunity throughout my career at Salem State. If I were to have an opportunity to be a staff member for the IT department I would gladly take any opportunity possible.
Flexible schedule, nice atmosphere, enjoyed working with students

I was a student in the Nursing Program Although I did work for the Biology department to make media for the students in microbiology to grow bacteria on. The Management was very fair and supportive when I worked there. he hardest part of the job was to fit my schedule around the needs of the department, but they worked things out to make it not so difficult for me.
Experience, getting to know the staff in the department.
Trying to make my schedule work around their needs.
VOLUNTEER (Former Employee) – 601 S. Martin Luther KIng Dr – June 21, 2015
Working in the Lab at Winston-Salem State University was a great experience. I was allowed to work with a professor where we worked ECGC substance in Green tea to find a way to prevent leukemia cells from producing. During the research we realize that the higher the concentration of ECGC the less leukemia cells.So basically I learned if you drink Green Tea everyday it is a strong possibility you can prevent the growth of leukemia cells. My co-workers were amazing we worked well together and i learned a lot of them.There wasn't really a hard part of my job I enjoyed every moment of it.
Digital Geographic's Laboratory (Former Employee) – Salem, MA – April 2, 2015
As a former undergraduate and employee of Salem State University, I appreciated the value given and provided by a focused group who persevered at making differences for all. The faculty made a difference for the students with their endless support and encouragement to projecting everyone's future of accomplishment. The students took a responsibility to ensure faculty that they trusted in their advisement and judgement and reciprocated what they learned by improvising ideas that brought the faculty to where they are today. I must admit this had an impact on my relationship to other students and faculty. Trusting their advisement and building that in my skills of action demonstrated my readiness for the world outside of campus. My co-workers were delightful to work with and share experiences that established connections that would never break. The ending result was having each other's back and relying on support that would lift one another up when we felt discouraged. The hardest part of the job was leaving and breaking a routine that set a comfort zone among us and our everyday interactions. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing my clients' spirits lifted after taking initiative in the effort to try a new direction in their learning but benefit in their confidence by listening to my field expertise when I guided them in their learning.
STOREKEEPER III (Current Employee) – Salem, MA – March 25, 2015
The university is a good working experience. A drawback is the advancement part as it is heavily unionized and that,while being a step up to another job sometimes can be a lengthly and frustrating Experience. Management does not seem to take too seriously the input and experience of its employees,rather relying on their managerial experiences to make,in Their own mind, decisions on how to operate.
