UNCG Student Recreation Center
Student Campus Recreation, Facility Assistant (Former Employee) – Greensboro, NC – September 3, 2014
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.
