Depending on the day, the work was different, usually maintaining the dining hall, but sometimes also maintaining the salad bar full with the varieties of the day. The staff includes mostly students, but it's friendly and warm.Not the most glorious job, but includes a meal every shift.
Good job to have while in school and helped pay for school itself.
Research Assistant (Former Employee), Findlay, OH – June 19, 2014
Pros: work from home, paid for some of schooling
Cons: busy work, and pay cuts
Learned a lot of the inter-workings of the University. A typical day of work consisted of sitting on a laptop doing desired updates to websites and other office duties. My management and co-workers were – more... always friendly and easy to work with. Hardest part of the job was waiting for direction from other people. As it was a university run website I had to wait on approval before moving on or taking action on certain things I knew needed to be done. The location, the hours and the people were all enjoyable parts of my job there. – less

To me a typical day at The University of Findlay is my perfect day.

Recreation Center Student Employee (Former Employee), Findlay, OH – May 6, 2013
Pros: able to set routes on the wall, it wasn't too difficult of a job to do
Cons: no benefits, limited hours due to many employees
My typical work day was sitting at the rock wall waiting for anyone to come and climb. The other co-workers and I would take turns belaying other students or faculty members climbing the wall and teaching – more... them basic climbing techniques. In the down times when no one would be climbing we would listen to music or have a chance to do some homework. Learned the proper techniques for belaying someone. Our bosses were very laid back and liked to have a good time and have fun at work as well as doing our jobs well. The hardest part of my job was belaying someone for a long time with no break, the repeated motion can wear you down if it's non-stop climbers the whole shift. The most enjoyable part was able to meet new people and build friendships with the students who came in regularly. – less
