Social workplace with plenty of down time
Desk Assistant (Former Employee), Carbondale, ILJune 8, 2015
Pros: Able to socialize, flexible scheduling, ability to complete school work at work.
Cons: No Breaks.
This job was ideal for a student such as myself. The work shift was never longer than 6 hours, and the management was very flexible when it came to schedule changes and shift coverage. The management let – more... us workers complete school work and other activities during our work shift, The work was fairly easy. Due to the tight work space, our relationships as co workers were extremely friendly, might even be describe as a mini family. There wasn't an extremely hard aspect of the job, but there were plenty of enjoyable things. The cookouts, the movie nights, and the best thing was the relationship that were built between residents and us desk assistants. – less

Work Experience for SIUC
Internship (Former Employee), Carbondale, ILJune 2, 2015
A typical day working at this job was doing school work in my office being offered to me and attending research meetings. I learned to keep a positive attitude while doing work and toward co workers no – more... matter how tiring the job is. My co- workers were nice and did their jobs. My hardest part of this job is getting over the consistent labor once I am use to the flow of what is to be done in the job. My most enjoyable part of the job is making new friends and having a chance to express myself to others while I am doing my work. – less

Some people that came into this job didn't know how to work with food. On the other hand, it was a great job to have during the semester because I still had time to get my classwork done but still make money.

Communications Design Assistant (Current Employee), Carbondale, ILSeptember 18, 2014
A typical work day involves using a database to enter potential student information for automated email correspondence. I've learned how to navigate several different databases used by the university for – more... communicating with potential students via email and how to filter emails to specific student or degree majors demographic. I enjoy working with all my fellow co-workers. I don't find much hard about the job; however, the database when it freezes up can be challenging. The most enjoyable part of my job is being efficient and constantly finding new work to preform without my direct supervisors instruction. – less
