Productive and Fun Workplace with ambitious collegues
Math Tutor (Current Employee), Carbondale, IL – May 5, 2014
Math tutoring is a great way to enhance my leadership abilities. Learning how to accommodate different thought processes and also working paces help my understanding of what it takes to be a leader. Patience, knowledge, and ambition are just a few traits I'd use to describe what it takes. In addition, I must say accommodating different people is the – more... hardest part of Math Tutoring, – less
Productive and enjoyable environment with a moderate level of work.
Custodian (Former Employee), Carbondale, IL – April 28, 2014
Pros: friendly environment
Cons: limited amount of hours
My typical work here consisted of me and my partner going through and making sure all rooms, labs, bathrooms, and offices are clean and organized. I learned of different chemicals to clean with and ways to help reduce odors like in the bathroom. My supervisor was willing to help out the workers as far as their work load and class schedules. The hardest – more... part of the day was having to go through and making sure you have cleaned all areas properly in the manner that was expected in time. The most enjoyable part were the times when one or more workers had to perform a task and we would have friendly co-workers helping out. – less
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee), Carbondale Illinois – April 25, 2014
Pros: excellent work environment, supportive staff, great learning experience
Work day included seeing clients and writing notes along with other administrative work.
I learned a lot about myself as a counselor and about the administrative and paper work part of counseling agencies.
The director and supervisors were the most supportive staff I have ever worked with. I could talk to them about personal issues as well as professional – more... consultation. They were very honest with feedback and allowed me to learn how to be an effective independent worker
My coworkers provided a warm and welcoming environment and were also very professional. we worked on very important projects together with great team work and products.
The hardest thing about the job was being a full time graduate student while also working dull time.
The great part about this job was that I was about to have flexibility in my schedule, which allowed me to be present mentally and physically for clients in need. It also helped me to have necessary time to provide quality services and note management for the cases assigned to me. – less
Resident Assistant (Former Employee), Carbondale, IL – April 14, 2014
Mainly I'm a student first, so just finding that balance between work and personal life takes time. Time-management is very important in the workplace because you can become overwhelmed with school work and your job.
My specific supervisors were great, others not so much.
Wetland Field Station Research Assistant/Manager (Current Employee), Carbondale IL – April 7, 2014
There are worse place to work and live, but also better. The University itself has some issues and generally lacks a coherent plan as far as I can tell. The department I worked in had some great people but there are a few distinct groups that generally do not interact (at least in a positive manner), furthering the lack of cohesion. Nothing terrible – more... ever happened though, and all of my immediate co-workers and supervisors were always great to work with. – less
Great workplace for a student as long as you can find a meaningful job.
Information Technology Assistant (Current Employee), Carbondale, IL – March 14, 2014
Majority of student employees are paid minimum wage, regardless of their job responsibilities. However, it is a great opportunity to get your feet wet, especially if you can find employment that is relevant to your studies.

Supervisor Ben Anderson (Former Employee), Carbondale, IL – December 16, 2013
A typical day would involve lots of phone calls and working on/with computers. I learned a lot about closed and open networks, best way to trouble shoot computer/network issues, and was able to better my phone etiquette. The management team I work for was amazing, understanding, and extremely helpful. All of my former co-workers were more than willing – more... to teach me about things I didn't know about involving the our positions. The hardest part of the position was knowing I was only hired as temporary extra help and the position was not permanent. The best part of the position I held was being able to work so close with so many great people that truly worked as a team to acquire mutual goals. – less
Able to be exposed to different diversity in students

I Go to work and stream live the sports games from the camera. I learned how to make graphic designs and make different graphics for basketball games. My co-workers are fun to work with. The hardest part of my job is making the replay's for the game. The enjoyable part of my job is being around all the fans and crowd.
