Administration Assistant to Director of Admission (Former Employee), Boston, MA – January 6, 2014
I love the fast pace of going out as a recruiter. I enjoy helping people. I like the fact of working in a involvement setting with professor and students making sure that each party know that I am there to help with duties and projects to make a easy flowing environment.
Athletic Counselor (AC) (Former Employee), Springfield, MA – September 26, 2013
Springfield College is one of a kind. The overall culture there is athletic and my background blended in well. Working for SC was an experience and eye opening allowing me to grow in ways I had not thought of or was ready for.
Studying there as an Athletic Counselor was truly a great experience as it provided me the opportunity to immediately apply – more... what I was learning to the athletes on campus. I facilitated teams and workshops on topics that included confidence, cohesive, self esteem, communication, time management, relaxation...etc. – less
Work was great and productive, but after several years, no opportunities for advancement..
Administration (Former Employee), Springfield, MA – August 29, 2013
Pros: great campus and envirement. professors are amazing
Cons: not a great place to better your life and career goals.
I worked there several years and even though I worked hard and loved the environment, it was very hard to advance my career within the SC community. I would apply over and over and over again several positions in the school and I never got one job. Sometimes I wouldnt even get a call back or a letter stating that they were looking at my resume, that – more... by now that had more than ten copies since I started working there. They always hired someone they knew, never someone who had the qualifications. Its unfortunate, but true. Ultimately, I had to look somewhere else to better my life. Loved the campus, loved the school. But screwed in many ways while I was there. PS. Somewhat racist and as friendly as I was, very clicky school. If you are black or latino, or any "minority" you will most likely just get a janitorial job or a part-time staff job that is temporary OR long term with no benefits. Some staff members are clicky and rude. – less
