Media Technician (Former Employee) – Upland, IN – October 10, 2014
The Media Services department runs almost every event on campus that requires video, audio, and lighting support. Hours are sporadic and there can be slow weeks followed by insanely busy ones. My fellow student co-workers were a lot of fun to work with and do all the behind-the-scenes support so that the university's events ran smoothly. The hardest part of the job was balancing schoolwork when the workload was heavy on any given week. But I enjoyed learning about the workflow and equipment and making a lot of friends along the way.
Superlative place to work and area to live. Wonderful staff and faculty.
Operations Manager - Educational Technology Center (Current Employee) – Upland, IN – February 13, 2013
Although typical in most expectations as a management position, the place is anything but typical in atmosphere and pleasure to work. The benefits are good, with tuition for our children, and decent health care. But the culture is what drives our family commitment to the location, and the friendships and lifestyle are wonderful. Work and living are highly integrated, and personal and family involvement are encouraged, with opportunities for frequent interaction.
good living area, not expensive cost of living, good health insurance.
no room for further growth laterally or in any direction, educational opportunities and professional development not an emphasis.

Line Runner (Former Employee) – Upland, IN – November 23, 2014
In this job, my requirements were to fill buffet lines and make sure they were clean and full at all times. It was expected that we would take over for people who needed breaks and that we remained flexible throughout our shifts.
The coworkers and management here were always helpful and friendly.
The hardest part of the job was when my coworkers would work really slowly to get refills out to the lines.
Great place to work! Loving and caring people all around you.

Phonathon Caller (Former Employee) – Upland, IN – June 15, 2012
Came in on time, but if you were a little late, then it did not matter. We called those on the phone by using a very easy computer program. The hardest part was when the program would not work. The easiest part was when we called up alumni that were ready and willing to give.
UNIVERSITY EDITOR (Former Employee) – Upland, IN – April 18, 2012
I loved the work of my hands at Taylor - producing an award-winning magazine. I enjoyed the interviewing and writing, planning themes/future magazines, directing designers and photographers. The biggest drawback was that it was set in Upland, Indiana, (<2,000 people) in the middle of the cornfields.
