Allowed lots of freedom
Clerk (Current Employee), Iowa City, IAAugust 14, 2014
It was nice being given the opportunity to design my own syllabus and shaping a class. It gave me independence to teach exactly what I wanted to teach and how I wanted to teach (once approved by the department head).

Physical Therapy Aide (Former Employee), Iowa City, IAAugust 13, 2014
Pros: close to home, schedule my own hours, can take breaks whenever, don't sit at a desk all day
Cons: part-time only, no benefits
A typical day at work consisted of me consenting patients for research. If the patients agreed to participate, I collected tissue that was removed from the patient during their surgery. The lab consisted of 4 student employees and 2 supervisors. I considered the lab to be like a family. Work always came first but we always made time to calm eachother – more... down in stressful situations. The hardest part of the job was showing up at 5:30 in the morning during the rush of nurses prepping patients for surgery. It was challenging getting in patients' rooms to consent them for research while not interfering with the nurses' routines. The most enjoyable part of the job was talking to patients. It was interesting to see the reactions of people when I told them about cancer research projects. – less

Telemarketer (Former Employee), Iowa City, IAJuly 24, 2014
Pros: tuition assistance and the culture.
Working for the University of Iowa was great, I met a lot of amazing people while developing and improving my communication skills, sales experience, customer service, persuasiveness, and persistence. It consisted of cold-calling for 30 hours a week but like I said, it was a fun environment to work in where I could multitask with calling and completing – more... my homework. – less

Athletic Academic Administrators assistant (Former Employee), Iowa City, IAJune 30, 2014
Pros: food being supplied
Cons: working extremly late nights
Students were great. I learned how to operate with people especially on my team building skills. Allowed me to understand the purpose of organization on a daily planner. Co-workers were all older then me so I learned from them a lot but most were pretty stubborn and stuck in their ways. Hardest part was trying to influence others. I really enjoyed working – more... with the different students and organizations that we partnered with. – less

U of Iowa
Lecturer (Current Employee), Iowa City, IAJune 5, 2014
Pros: ease of commute, friendly environment, love the students
Cons: busy all the time, no back up to go to in-services, faculty meetings
Teach labs 8 times a week. Set up for other labs. Very busy and work from 0800-1800.
I work with wonderful people, and there is continuity of teaching philosophies. I teach 8 labs of the same material, and another teacher leads the other 8 labs of same material.
As junior faculty, hard to get away from classes for conventions, and other in-services – more... due to teaching responsibilities.
Also teach CPR for staff, students, and hospital staff. – less

Was fun to get to work with the kiddos all day
Medical Assistant (Former Employee), Iowa City, IAMay 28, 2014
Pros: working with the kids, andbeing able to use my cma in real lif experiences
Cons: did not feel like we were there to help the kids as that was for the counselors.
I was doing vitals every month, sent out orders for Dr.'s, made sure TB tests were done, gave injections, did assessments on new kiddos coming in.

Laboratory Assistant (Current Employee), Iowa City, IAMay 20, 2014
A typical day of mine includes performing necessary preparatory work in order to perform important scientific projects. I learned important molecular biological techniques to perform scientific research, communication skills to be able to successfully present my findings, time management skills to maximize productivity, and skills to make me a better – more... team worker. My co-workers were relaxed yet productive, leading to a comfortable work atmosphere with high productivity. I thoroughly enjoyed being able to view my progression during projects; seeing how each step contributed to the success of the project's entirety. Parts of the job that were less enjoyable were when weeks of hard work gave irrelevant or bad results. With more experience, I've learned that this is a crucial part of science that allows one to learn from her mistakes and become a better scientist. – less

Great workplace & co-workers
Clerk III (Former Employee), Coralville, IAMay 16, 2014
I enjoyed interacting with patients on a daily basis and helping them with whatever they would need. At the UIHC-Iowa River Landing it was very stressed upon to finish up with asking "is there anything else I can help you with today?" and making the patient feel welcomed. As a patient I experienced the warm feeling walking into the Iowa River Landing – more... and as staff I enjoyed making the patients feel very comfortable about coming and leaving the doctors office. The doctors office is not always an exciting place to be and to be part in helping someone happier is a great feeling. I have learned so much about scheduling and I am very eager to continue to learn more! – less
