Supportive Environment In Which To Learn New Skills and Improve Current Skills
Research Assistant (Current Employee), Greenville, PAApril 30, 2015
Pros: Work from home
Cons: Hours varied per week based on work available
I completed tasks as asked and met deadlines.I exhibited teamwork and cooperation by communicating with my boss and his assistant throughout projects. I displayed attention to detail when entering data into an Excel spreadsheet from the bibliographic management software program Zotero. developed sharp writing and editing skills by writing annotations of 50 words or less for each source found in my assigned folders for an annotated bibliography. I developed data coding skills by categorizing interview for a curriculum redesign according to coding categories. I displayed self-motivation and ingenuity by being given raw data and figuring out the best way to organize it.

Student Custodian (Current Employee), Spring Arbor, MIApril 1, 2015
Pros: Great co-workers
Cons: Minimum wage and small hours
Easy work, but time consuming. A bit repetitive, but my co-workers were fun to work with. The Dining Commons workers would notify last minute about meetings or groups that were present while working.

Great place to work
University Guide (Current Employee), Spring Arbor, MIJanuary 6, 2015
Pros: people, management, environment
Cons: slow to change, in need of some changes
Spring Arbor is a positive environment to work in that seeks to take good care of its employees. There are great staff and a sincere community. It may not pay the best but you will be hard pressed to find more genuine and kind employees. Like all Christian institutions, moving forward with new ideas can sometimes be difficult but Spring Arbor remains fairly open and accepting.

A day of work for me consisted of tours, lunch meetings, call nights, office work, and other various tasks.

I was a student worker so my job looked different. My most difficult part was having to work on a few random weekends. I had to be prepared to work extra if needed.

The most enjoyable part was building relationships with my coworkers whether students or full time staff.

Management genuinely cares about the employees.

Assistant Coach (Former Employee), Spring Arbor, MIMay 7, 2014
Job is very hands on with great interaction with athletics. management is very approachable. In additions co-workers are also friendly and always looking to help! The biggest issues are those that come from athletes and attitude towards different situations. However it is great knowing in the end you had a part in helping them reach their potential!
