Site Administrator (Former Employee) – Nashville, TN – June 28, 2017
Trevecca was a fantastic place to work. Faculty and staff were amazing to work with and everyone is concerned for everyone else. Good pay for the size of the University and area of country and good benefits. Loved working with the students on a daily basis
HVAC Systems Manager, Plant Operations (Current Employee) – Nashville, TN – December 16, 2016
Trevecca has many strengths including it's location in Nashville, it's close family-like community, and it's great work-life balance. I have enjoyed working here for the last three years, but there is little room for growth.
Student worker at Audio/Visual department (Former Employee) – Nashville, TN – October 5, 2016
As a front of house engineer, I was running sound for several hundred students twice a week having to set up and tear down equipment. i loved every second of it and learning from my boss and co workers that had been doing it much longer was ideal for me.
This is a phenomenal institution for education and work. Great location as it is extremely close to downtown Nashville. There are wonderful people that work here and it has been an amazing opportunity to work here as well.
Financial Aid Counselor (Current Employee) – Nashville, TN – July 4, 2015
A typical day at work is serving students, parents, and grandparents. Responding to emails and phone calls and speaking with students face to face. I learned how to work while serving God and his wonderful people. My co-workers are wonderful Christians who are a blessing to work with. The hardest part of the job is to tell a student that we don't have any funds/scholarships to help them to bridge the gap. The most enjoyable part of the job is helping, serving, and educating students, parents, and grandparents.
Research Projects in Biology (Former Employee) – Nashville, TN – March 2, 2015
A group of four students including myself started cancer research at Trevecca Nazarene University. Basic research techniques were covered, including: aseptic technique, bacteria culture manipulation, cell culturing, cell counting, cell death monitoring, gel electrophoresis, and cell splitting. Specifically, cell manipulation was performed using MDA231 breast cancer cell lines. This lab is investigating the effect of frankincense oil on the cancer cell line listed above, as well as other tissues in the future. The program hopes to learn more about the chemical pathways that cause apoptosis in breast cancer cells upon exposure to the boswellic acid in frankincense oil.

Staff (Former Employee) – Nashville, TN – August 7, 2014
For this type of job, I would come in before any students are allowed to come in to start preparing and cooking their meals. The manager here is so sweet and she really made it a goal to have a great relationship with all of us. She did like things a certain way and we had to make sure we met all her expectations, but overall she is a wonderful boss. I also had the pleasure of working with about 50 other students, who were all funny and extremely friendly. Everyone got along quite well. Through working here I have learned how to deal with all types of people, because not everyone is going to like what you bring to the table. Not everyone is going to like what you are serving, so I had to learn patience and see if I can make whatever they needed at the time.

A typical work day includes: preparing for clients, individual counseling and group sessions, focusing on Subjective, Objective, Assessment, and Treatment Plan in Titanium notes, diagnosing individuals, supervision, and creating a unique and warm atmosphere for my clients.

You tend to learn many skills as a student employee in college. Here is where I began to hone my skills in dealing with people in customer service scenarios. It was great because I was promoted to the assistant manager postion and ran the snack shop in the evenings. Here my work was very appreciated and the management staff showed me how much the enjoyed having me work for them.
I also enjoyed being a Spanish tutor and helping students who were studying the language. It was great to be a bridge and share part of my culture with them.
Free meals in the cafeteria, flexible hours, great staff to work with.
it was a student worker job so i worked whenever i got the chance to. As a runner, my responsibilities were to switch out the food and make the area presentable. As the cashier, My responsibilities were to handle the money, make sure no one sneaked in, and to wash the tables when the day was done. As the replacement worker, My responsibilities were to replace the person that was absent and to take over their duties. if i learned anything from these jobs it was how to deal with people and knowing what to say to make them leave with a smile. the hardest part of the job was knowing what to do when things broke down for the first time.
A typical day at work consists of organizing, scheduling, and planning games, practices and tournaments. I've learned to balance multiple tasks a day while making sure they are all done successfully and on time. The hardest part of the job is being in season and having so much to do, but with time management skills it isn't very difficult. The most enjoyable part of the job is working an extremely busy and demanding job, but making everything come together successfully.
