Financial Aid Director (Former Employee), Palo Alto, CAJanuary 23, 2013
Pros: flexible hours
Cons: better medical insurance, short lunches, etc.
typical day is always busy. I learned that you need to really be careful on who to trust,. The management, some support you some not. Very nice co-workers and we all work as a team. Hardest part of my job is to help students find all types of financial assistance to help them pay for their education and so they can achieve their goals and see them graduate – more... from the program with a degree. The most enjoyable job is to see the student you help achived their goals and received their degree. I loved helping customers or students and enjoyed dealing with people. – less
