Working here was fun because we worked with our peers (other students), but we were paid once monthly (like other UNCG jobs) which was inconvenient. The environment influenced diversity which was great.
Student (Former Employee) – School of Education – June 11, 2017
Knowledgeable, understanding, and confident professors that are genuinely there to help you and see you succeed. Professors go above and beyond to aid you in your in your path of becoming a future educator.
A typical day is grading assignments, or spending time in the lab answering questions for students. I learned how to quickly analyze problems students had with Java and could give instant feedback. Professors are easy to get along with.
I think it was by nomination only. It was pretty easy if you are a people person and can lead adult groups in ice-breaker and team-building activities, as well as learn the many resources available at UNCG. We were needed for about 22 cumulative hours 3 times a year in each week preceding student registration. Not time consuming but very draining.
Environmental Service Technician (Former Employee) – Greensboro, NC – June 14, 2016
I had the pleasure of working with very productive co-workers. Everybody worked together as a team. Whenever a co-worker got behind in his or her work we all pitched in until the job was complete that is a typical day at work.
clean tables wash dishes change coolers very well working environment one supervisor was very unprofessional got along well with co workers the hardest part of the job was changing the water to the sinks and the enjoyable part was cleaning everything
Library Student Worker (Former Employee) – Elizabeth City, NC – December 14, 2015
Depending on how busy the restaurant was, and it became very busy on weekends, I did everything from coordinating seating plans in order to seat as many people as allowed, took orders, ran food, and maintained an overall hygienic environment.
It was my greatest pleasure to have been able to work there. I learned a lot from the cultured work community and the people who were there to make it all happened. A typical day is coming in to your fellow co-worker who is always smiling and cheerfully welcoming you in to the facility. I learned that any problems or issue that occurs is not just one person's fault, it is directly or indirectly everyone's fault. Management is pretty much a simple chain of command, with the head of department in charge of the graduate assistant, supervisors, and facility assistants. My co-workers are typically friendly, easy to get along with, and always willing to learn. The hardest part about my job was dealing with patron's frustration, denying patrons their entry rights without their UNCG ID card, and getting swamped with tasks and overloaded with patrons needing assistance. The most enjoyable part of the job is to make EVERYONE's day brighter and more cheerful: whether it was the Head of the Financial Aids department, Professors, Doctorates, students, co-workers, management staffs, and many more who attends the UNCG Student Recreation Center.
Allowed to use equipment room space, flexible with school schedule, and the ability to meet anyone coming in.
