Amazing place to work
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee), Buffalo, NYMarch 18, 2014
Pros: free lunches/dinners. quite flexible.
Cons: none that i can think of
Learning and application is at its maximum. Rolling out orders in less than the stipulated average time was overwhelming. I learned a lot in terms of time management and optimal level of customer satisfaction. Co-workers are, to use one word, simply superb. They helped me fit in and learn everything. They were always supportive and made me learn from – more... my mistakes. They were more than willing to help me initially, so that I could deliver my best. – less

Productive and fun place
Medicinal Chemistry Research Assistant (Former Employee), Buffalo, NYFebruary 12, 2014
A typical working day involves with experiments and paper reading. It was a good and productive place to work. Nice coworkers, people would discuss about experiments and articles. The hardest part was that there were always a lot of projects and deadlines, and you really had to work late sometimes. All in all, a great place.

Friendly work place that allowed direct contact with customers and patrons.
CIT Public Sites Consultant (Former Employee), Amherst, NYJune 19, 2013
Pros: relaxed work place
Cons: low working hours
The typical day at work would consist of a simple 4 hour shift. I would help patrons with their print outs and technical computer problems. There were 4 public computing cites which were managed by at least two co-workers at all times. Each of my co-workers would have the same capabilities and responsibilities. The hardest part of the job was when work – more... was slow. I would be waiting for questions or problems to come up. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to help each parton with any problem. It gave me a sense of belonging to the community. – less
