Interacting with the Staff and students of Tuskegee University
Transportation Coordinator (Current Employee), Tuskegee, ALJanuary 9, 2014
A typical day a work is getting to work and finding out that your entire agenda has changed. My job is to coordinate all trips with staff and students. I have to ensure that the students get to their destination at the appropriate time. I have to schedule the workers so that every job is accounted for. I have learned over the years to go with the flow – more... and take it one day at a time. I have been responsible for the well being of eight employee and two student helpers. The hardest part of my job is getting everything accomplished with the limited amount of personnel and equipment. But at the end of each day it is done and its GOD that makes it happen. I am a excellent team player, so as long as my co-workers are happy, then so am I. – less

Work - Study Student (Former Employee), Tuskegee, ALNovember 16, 2013
A typical day at work was always fun and loving. I would greet my co-workers and write in my time. We would always have a conversation going. My co-workers helped me through some of my hardest situations. I learned about people and the way people are. Management was great and fair. My co-workers were some of the best people I'll ever work with. Hardest – more... part of the job was walking all over campus to run errands due to me not having a car. The most enjoyable part were the memories I have working there. – less

wow cafe
cook (Former Employee), Tuskegee, ALFebruary 7, 2013
Pros: great hours
Cons: can be tiring at times but its the price you pay for being a hard worker.
Everyday from 1-3 and from 5-7 we would have this routine called meal plan. Its 2 hours for evey time period and how it works is the students are issued this card from the campus allowing them to purchase food off of it. The students bring the card to the cash register, then we would ask which meal plan would they like. The meal is free to the student – more... and the objective of it is to feed as many as students within these 2 time periods. The menu icluded everything from juicy chicken tenders,huge salads,wraps, burgers and chicken wings. Working at a steady pace and with your co-workers is very important. Good communication is the key to getting as many as students out oof the line as possible. I worked with a great crew and everyday was a challenge so it never got boring. We also were trained in proper proceedures, do and donts of the kitchen. At the end of the day we all would have a assigned station to clean. After everything has been wiped down, food properly labled ,and kitchen dishes are put back in place we call it a night until the next day. It never gets boring but i must admit its a challenge. – less
