A typical day at work would include Answers incoming calls/records messages Filing confidential student paperwork,Xeroxing, Faxing and Shredding materials as needed.Assist with weekend classroom set-up/take down and any other duties as assigned. I learned how important communicating your educational needs were. The management and co-workers were always helpful. The hardest part of the job was remembering the students names and the changes to Veterans forms. The most enjoyable part of the job was preparing and participating in the graduation ceremonies.
Meeting new people, great mentors and free lunches

This was a job were I learned a lot in a very short amount of time. I learned a lot about the job and how things worked within the department. I also got to meet graduate students and professors which I probably wouldn't have had if I didn't get this job opportunity. The work it's self was pretty stress as I had to create and run my own experiment.

The entire state of Illinois has been mismanaged for several years. Being a state institution, SIU has had declining enrollment leading to the reduction of our operation from 4 full service dining halls and 3 cash store operations to just 2 dining halls. There are no opportunities for advancement or anything promising in this state anymore.

If you want extra money in your pockets, then it's the place to work. They don't pay students to work over 20 hours or financial aid fires you. It's a lot of work (depending on where you work) for little pay.
