Pros: free parking, reduced prices for meals on campus, free tickets to campus productions and concerts.
Cons: working long hours without being compensated for overtime hours worked.
I was provided the freedom to do my job with little to no supervision. My primary responsibility was supporting the Vice President for Enrollment Services. However, I was also responsible for supporting the division staff as well. I was the "go to" person within the organization. My knowledge of the organization and university structure enabled me to provide assistance and needed information to Enrollment Services personnel.
Lab Assistant (Former Employee), Georgetown, TX – July 14, 2015
Pros: made own hours
Cons: very little training
This was a student held position, so I guess it could be seen as work study. It was part time and I basically made my own hours. My boss was friendly and always checked in on us (which was expected as it was a laboratory setting). I enjoyed the job, temporary as it was, and enjoyed the real world experience.
QB Coach and Football Operations (Former Employee), Georgetown, TX – July 23, 2014
Southwestern University is a great place to work. The environment was extremely positive. Besides coaching football, my job was recruit and build relationships with young male student/athletes. Help monitor academic career. The best part of the job was building and maintaining relationships/friendships with the student/athlete and their families.
Public Service Officer (Part-time) (Current Employee), Georgetown, TX – March 12, 2014
Pros: free access to the fitness facilities and other facilities on campus.
Cons: no insurance
The most enjoyable part of the job is that I have the freedom to do my job without someone checking on me at all times. The hardest part of my job is not having any type of insurance. My co-workers do what needs to be and management are doing what they to do make to the workplace function properly. What I learned is just do your job. A typical day at work is a quiet atmosphere with everyone doing their job.
Pirate Outreach Program Caller (Former Employee), Georgetown, TX – September 29, 2013
Pros: free dinner
Cons: hours could change at any time without much warning
I loved my coworkers and we all got along really well, we didn't have much time for personal talk since we would just eat for 20 mins then do about 3 to 4 hours of calls depending on the night. Everyone was busy and it seemed to be a non-stop stream of calls but at the end of the night we left and was glad to see each other the next day to talk and eat dinner together.
