Student (Former Employee) – Salem, MA – November 24, 2015
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.
Graduate Student, Geo-Information Science (Current Employee) – Salem, MA – March 15, 2015
Salem State University is the Excellent university for working professionals. Due to its offering of evening classes, it is very practical for working professionals to earn their degree. Professors are also quite nice and helpful.
Helping undeclared students with their questions about their academic progress. Felt very fulfilling helping students in similar situations as I have been in. Fun coworkers - we acted as a team to aid each other in giving the best advise to students. Toughest part of the job was becoming acclimated to registration period - when tons of students come in for required advising so they know how to and what to register for next semester. After the first registration period experience that time of the year became the best for anyone, including me, who wanted to work for as many hours as we could.
convenient scheduling around classes, awesome supervisors always their to assist us with tough questions
nature of job made for lack of hours until registration periods
Summer Peer Leader (Former Employee) – Salem, MA – September 7, 2014
I would not consider this to be a stressful job. I enjoyed helping the incoming freshman with making the transition from high school to college. It allowed me to put aspects of customer service into play. I had to mentor the freshman in the best way that I knew how to. I loved helping them and watching them grow into mature college students. I learned how to be a professional and a peer at the same time. This was a team oriented workplace. My coworkers and I had to manage about 300 new students. The hardest part of the job was understanding that each student is different so we as workers had to have different ways of interacting with each student. The most enjoyable part was when you find yourself helping them and learning new things about yourself while mentoring. We learned from each other, students and workers.
Student Laptop Specialist (Former Employee) – Salem, MA – August 13, 2014
Working at my own school I would have to say was awesome. It was very convenient and flexible around my class schedule. I worked in the Student Information Technology office. I basically help students that would come in to mainly setup Microsoft office, email on mobile devices and connecting to the schools network. We would have our own laptop repairs that we would do on students machines that were bought through the school. It was nice for me because I'm a very hands on person and like to take things apart and back together. I am a definite problem solver, I don't like to leave things hanging, I like to complete every task that I get on the job as best and efficient as possible. Salem State certainly built a lot of my personality skills, working with other students, grasping their needs and getting them underway under our best satisfaction.
