Fast paced, detail oriented a must
Mailroom Assistant (Current Employee), Savannah, GAOctober 18, 2013
Pros: excellent benefits
Working in a college mail room requires attention to detail to ensure that every item that arrives is entered into the computer for the correct student. Knowledge of data entry is required along with the ability to lift up to 40-50 lbs on a daily basis. Being able to communicate with students from all over the world, parents, faculty and staff is a – more... must. Problem solving and being adaptable in the daily changes to the work load is definitely a plus. Good customer service is first and foremost.

The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to meet students and parents from all over the world. – less

Freelance work gained through the school
Freelance Compositor and Editor (Former Employee), Savannah, GAJuly 16, 2013
While still a student at the school, many opportunities were made available to me to work on amateur or professional projects in my degree before I had even finished my diploma. These were great chances to learn my trade while still finishing my degree. While I may not have been technically an employee of the school, it was by their help that I was – more... given these jobs. – less

Job was routine and simple to get a hand of, lot of time between busyness.
Front Desk Greeter (Former Employee), Savannah, GAMarch 24, 2013
Pros: interaction with students, simple protocol, nice environment
Cons: long stretches without much activity, sitting all day, not much room for advancement
Working as a Front Desk Greeter was a great work study job at SCAD that allowed me to earn an income and not fall behind on my school work. Daily routine was checking in with the cage managers, scanning student IDs, directing tour groups and guests, and handling packages and deliveries. During peak hours you have to interact with a high level of students – more... rushing to get to class, though between classes traffic drops to almost none. Job can be easy to get a hang of, though stressful the first time you have to deal with someone who has lost their ID card or walks by the ID scanner.

Largely you work by yourself at the front desk, though you check in with managers hourly or if there are any problems. Team in the back cage office are supportive and friendly, though you only see them from time to time. Best to bring something to fight off boredom between rushes as there is a lot of down time. – less

Enjoyable job
Computer Services Technician II (Former Employee), Savannah, GaFebruary 1, 2013
Pros: great area, awesome staff to work with, comfortable setting, rich learning environment
Cons: cut backs and late with promised pay increases
I honestly enjoyed going to work everyday. The people are always nice and welcoming. The staff was easy to support and help with their day to day issues and the work was steady. Management was top notch and the communication was always there and effectively used. The students are extremely talented and I learned a lot from them as well. The hardest – more... part was getting to the many different areas throughout the day that I would need to support at times since we were short staffed, but we made it work and kept all problems resolved on time each week. – less

Hard working people who come together to create beautiful productions
Scene Shop Work Study (Former Employee), Savannah, GASeptember 19, 2012
Pros: great people and great results for productions
Cons: work study position at school, no benefits, not enough hours
A typical day at work was planning what progression needed to be made on the scenery for the production and on a daily basis I learned deadlines, how to work with many different types of people, and discipline to get things done no matter what. Management was great and helped when they could but I learned how to manage my department by my self most – more... days. My co-workers were my peers and I learned how to schedule and keep them organized as well as the bigger project. The hardest part of the job was meeting deadlines for the large pieces of scenery that needed be completed sooner than originally scheduled and the most enjoyable part was the final production and the great connections I made with other people. – less

Runway Magazine
Deans' Assistant | Chair's Assistant (Former Employee), Atlanta, GAJune 12, 2012
Pros: excellent exposure to the high-end art and design community, great health benefits that cater to singles and modern families.
Cons: lack of advancement opportunities. poor work/life balance.
There must be a willingness to make SCAD your life. Your passion to perform your talent must mirror your loyalty to the company. Your personal values must coincide with SCAD's; otherwise, the level of comfort and drive needed for success in SCAD's environment will not be met.

SCAD is a privately-owned for-profit organization (with a non-profit division) – more... with a very bureaucratic corporate structure, complete with office politics and management/staff segregation. "It's time for the 'Dog and Pony Show'" is a very common phrase among the staff and faculty. – less
