A day in the life of a maintenance man
Buildings and Grounds (Current Employee), Boston, MAOctober 13, 2014
The best part of any day at work is when I have made a customer happy. There are few work request that make me cringe, they usually involve a clogged drain. At one time I was learning quite a bit at work, cutting in and installing new door ways, how to install ACT ceilings, office renovations to name a few. Now the crew is so small we are not able to do much of this work anymore and outside contractors are used. For me this is the hardest part of the job, no longer mentally stimulating.

The benifits are some of the best I have ever received. Although they have changed for new employees.

Cashier/Food service (Former Employee), Brookline, MAApril 8, 2014
Pros: free lunch, meeting different people
Cons: some staff was uncooperative
Simmons was a nice place to work at it showed me how to be more independent as well work with a team. my co workers were great and the diverse students that I have came in contact with was a plus. The hardest part about this job was sometimes providing the necessary assigned lunches for students who have requested them. Some were picky and very unsure of what they wanted. Also some staff was very unreliable at times to help out. It was a great experience overall.

Good Co-Workers, Enjoyable Workplace
Junior Programmer (Former Employee), Boston, MAJanuary 13, 2014
Pros: not very uptight atmosphere, friendly co-workers
Cons: some times people outside technology can be hard to work with
A typical day included fixing Datatel Screens and writing new subroutines for screens.
This job was my first foray into academic software solutions, but I feel I got the hang of it fairly soon.

Technology/ Event support assistant (Current Employee), Boston, MAApril 28, 2013
Pros: cafe's, good employees
Cons: very slow paced more than often, no room for advancement, no benefits.
Simmons college is a great institution to work for. They can really work with your availability and skill level. No room for advancement or to roll over into benefits. A great place while in college or just graduating. Simmons is a good stepping stone for Event/Technical support positions.
