I greeted everyone who came in or on the phone with a positive greeting. I did my best to assist students and patrons with research papers, job search, resumes, and anything else they asked. I would direct them to someone who could help them if I couldn't for some reason. I made copies and sent faxes for students and patrons, and scanned documents. I also would look for books students needed or wanted if the book wasn't on the shelves, check in and out books, and worked in a database. The best part was meeting new people and being able to help them anyway I could.
Encourages connections and academic excellence in a comfortable and work environment
Adjunct English Faculty (Current Employee) – Hillsboro, OH – February 9, 2013
SSCC affirms a culture of academic excellence while providing an enjoyable work environment. I currently teach three English and two Speech courses on Mondays and Wednesdays from 8:30am - 4:15pm. I have learned to respect students of all ages, ethicities, gender, and dynamics. My co-workers have become people I trust and respect. The leadership is consistent and honest. The most difficult aspect of my job in the uncertainty of having a part-time position. The most rewarding part of my opportunity in the classroom is witnessing student confidence and success!
wonderful work invironment focused on the academic success of students
I loved this job and didn't want to leave but school was done.
Receptionist/Customer Service Work Study (Former Employee) – Sardinia, Ohio – June 18, 2012
This was the coolest job. I worked with some great people and I got to know a bunch of students and faculty. It was a very caring and fun place to work. It was also a very nice atmosphere to work in and I love working in the library.
Although I was just a work study employee, I enjoyed working with the people at this job. They were open, honest, and respectful to all employees. I believe the company understands that everyone is not the same and they are not going to be the ones who change them.
Bookstore Management (Former Employee) – Washington Court House, OH 43160 – April 29, 2012
Depending on the week of the quarter a typical day would vary greatly. The beginning of the quarter (the first week of book sales) was very busy with extended hours. I took tuition payments book payments, dispensed on line book orders, made deposits, Typical days were devoted to keeping book counts, inventory management, scheduling nursing exams, respiratory therapy exams, explaining financial aid when necessary, keeping the store neat and orderly. Prior to the start of a new quarter all books that had been ordered for the individual courses had to be shelved and counted and determined how many were new and how many were used. I learned a great deal about the operation of a community college and the workings of an on campus bookstore. IWhen I first started this position I was the only person working the bookstore, but when the new bookstore was opened another employee was hired. For the most part she was congenial with me. The many members of the business office were helpful an pleasant. The hardest part of this position was, I would say, the unpacking and shelving of the books for each quarter. This involved not only physical but organizational skills. The books had to be categorized, organized according to course and course number, and counts had to be accurate. I enjoyed the interaction with the students. Many would come to the bookstore between classes sometimes to browse, sometimes to have a sympathetic ear.
