Comfortable laid back work area
Desk Assistant (Current Employee), Hattiesburg, MSMarch 13, 2015
Pros: i can bring my laptop and do my school work while sitting at the desk.
Cons: weekends are kind of boring because most of the residents are gone home.
In all of my work history, I would have to day that this has been my favorite job. It is very flexible with my class schedule. The shifts are only 2 hour shifts and you can always split the shifts. For example, I might work 2 hours in the morning and come back and work 2 hours at night. This is an advantage in case I need time to go handle other priorities and also it gives me time to go to class and come back. On a typical day, I check residents in and out of the building upon entering and exiting. I assist residents in cases such as losing their room key or misplacing their student ID or having guests in the building. The hardest part would have to be when there are big events happening on campus and so many people are in and out of the dorm constantly and I have to keep up with everyone that is coming in and leaving out. The most enjoyable part is that I can basically be at school and at work at the same time, so in case I have class after my shift, I'm already on campus.

Great Learning Experience
Lab Technician (Former Employee), Hattiesburg, MSJanuary 7, 2015
This was an amazing opportunity as federal student worker. I learned the ins and outs of the lab, conducted research, assisted others, and even created the lab's first chemical inventory with safety analysis. Though this was not my first lab experience or first time working in a research lab with PhD's, Post Doctoral, or Masters's students, I learned a great deal about maximizing efficiency and adapting experiments as you go to counter mishaps and unforeseen errors in experimental design.

Merging School with Work
WorkOut Zone Fitness Attendant (Former Employee), Hattiesburg, MSJanuary 7, 2013
Pros: networking within a youthful environment
Cons: can no longer be employed after graduation
I loved going to work everyday because I never knew who or what I might encounter. All of my co-workers worked well with each other and we were not afraid to ask for assistance. Time management was crucial in balancing school assignments with work tasks. Every employee had to communicate their time schedules of when job tasks could be accomplished.
