Graduate Assistant and Master's Student (Current Employee) – Fayetteville, AR – June 18, 2014
My boss is tied for the other most enjoyable feature of my job. She is the reason that I love my job. She makes a lot of analyses of ways that I can improve a project or area and ways that I can help her. She's a professor and a very hard worker. She makes things happen and I like to make sure that I help however I can.
The other most enjoyable feature of my job is my freedom of creativity, suggestion, and cooperation. I am working a lot on graphic design and project and event coordination. I am also participating in departmental liaising and cooperation.
I work alone at the hours that are best for my schedule. I have to be detail oriented and large picture oriented. I have to be timely and flexible.
My co-workers are anyone that I could possibly be in communication with for cooperation at the University. The help for any project is potentially endless as many groups, departments, and programs have similar goals. Primarily, my coworker is my boss, as she is the most concerned and involved with each project.
Payment Solutions Development Manager (Current Employee) – Fayetteville, AR – June 17, 2014
I've worked at the University for over 16 years now. The campus is a wonderful place to come to work everyday. You have several places to eat close by and even some quick shopping spots for grabbing something on your way home after work.
Work life here is very laid back and easy going. There are a few moments where you may have a time crunch, but most of the time you can work on projects peacefully.
There is very little room for actual advancement here. Most people that work here have been here a very long time and aren't about to budge. So, you don't really have much of a ladder here. The pay is actually pretty good, but don't expect to make what you would in the private sector. What you get in return is a nice working environment and job security.
comfortable woking environment, discounts on tickets
Lifeguard (Former Employee) – Fayetteville, AR – June 11, 2014
This is a typical life-guard job. You have to check the pool, always be on the stand, and always be attentive to those who are in the water. I learned a great deal of responsibility, because you have to be on alert all day long, because anything can happen.
There was not too much that was challenging, except always paying attention for 8 hours in a row. It can get very repetitive, and it teaches you patience as well as some degree of mental fortitude.
work in a pool, get to swim laps every day, and interact with people who enjoy the pool.
long days mean you are staring at water for 8 hours in a row.
RAZORBACK FOOTBALL RECRUITING AMBASSADOR (Current Employee) – Fayetteville, AR – June 10, 2014
I enjoy working for the Razorback football team, however, there is little to no room for advancement or pay. A typical day includes a wide variation of things, depending on whats going on during that season of time. Some days I am calling parents of recruits, some days I am organizing the recruiting database, some days I am setting up an event for our recruits, etc.

Hog Caller (Current Employee) – Fayetteville, AR – May 16, 2014
Work usually starts at 5:15PM, unless you work on a Sunday - then work starts either at 1:45PM or 5:15PM. Employees have to be current university students. Everyone comes in prior to 5:15PM, finds their assigned cubicle, and prepares to call alumni or friends of the university. The managers are also current students themselves which makes for a professional but laid-back environment. All of my co-workers are current students; this makes it easy to obtain friends and relate to one another well. The hardest part of the job is getting friends/alumni of the university to make a financial contribution to the university. In spite of this, the most enjoyable part is spending time alongside my fellow co-workers because of the energy they bring to the call center.
Teaching Assistant (Current Employee) – Fayetteville, AR – March 10, 2014
Holding office hours provides me with an opportunity to meet many students and deal with different types of personalities. Working with the students and helping them is a great experience and gives me the satisfaction of making some kind of difference in their lives. This is the most enjoyable part of the job. It improved my interpersonal and organizational skills. This job involves working in teams which I enjoy the most. The challenging aspect of this job is to deal with different kinds of students and helping them understand difficult concepts in an easy manner.
Engaging and encouraging workplace that cultivates professional and personal growth

Lab Supervisor (Current Employee) – Little Rock, AR – March 5, 2014
A typical day at work, begins with logging into the system, and taking my seat at my desk. As the day proceeds, I am given the variety of task: undoing paper jams, scanning/coping items, working in Microsoft Programs, answering phone calls, and most of all providing a patient ear for the student I am working with. The two most valuable things I have learned at this job, is to not take anything for granted, and time management. I see people everyday, who lack the knowledge that I have in computers, and electronic systems; it just comes natural for me. This job calls for you to be attentive no matter what time of day, if you are on the clock, your time has to be spread out evenly among those that need assistance. No one person is more important then the next. The hardest part of the job is working my 9am-5pm shift on Saturdays, because that is our slowest day, other than that the job is well developed. The most enjoyable thing about my job is I get to do what I love, and that's help others. This job fuels my passion for meeting others needs.
Secretary II - Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Fayetteville, AR – February 28, 2014
I earned my undergraduate degree for practically nothing while I was working at the University of Arkansas and my children went there for 50% off of their tuition. You can't find benefits like that everywhere.
