Adjunct Instructor - School of Nursing (Current Employee), Daytona Beach, FL – October 3, 2015
Pros: Great work environment
Cons: Uncertain schedule
Interacting with students is very rewarding and enjoyable. I enjoy helping them achieve their goals and all that I learn from their assignment postings, especially about their culture and experience. The university staff is always very helpful and pleasant to work with. The hardest part of the job is, as an adjunct, your schedule is variable.
Teaching Assistant for Intro to C (Former Employee), Orlando, FL – September 21, 2015
Pros: Learning experience.
Cons: Limited hours.
A typical day at work depends on the day. My responsibilities were split between one day of office hours and then other days for grading. The grading was easy, I could do it from any location including test grading. Office hours were also pretty easy depending on the day due to the fact that you would get flooded if you had office hours on a day an assignment was due.
Cons: Didnt get paid until the end of the semester (for my particular position)
The university was very aware of students working and going to school. One of the requirements to apply was to submit a class schedule for the current semester. Hours were planned around class times, as well as your personal schedule (to an extent). Many of the staff I worked with were very polite and willing to extend help whenever necessary.

Postal clerk (Former Employee), Orlando, FL – August 22, 2015
Pros: I was provided with training in postal regulations and computers
Cons: It could be hard physical labor lifting tubs and trays in and out of a van.
I worked in the Postal Services at UCF for over eight years, having learned much about computers, running the postal machines, performing administrative tasks that accompany this type of job. I sorted – more... and delivered mail to all of the departments, following a prescribed route, picking up the outgoing mail to be processed and sent out for mailing. I learned how to process bulk mailings, UPS, library materials, thus learning the regulations for each type of mail. Periodically, I served as a courier, traveling throughout Central Florida to all of our area campuses, bringing their incoming materials for their satellite courses, and retrieving the outgoing ones to be returned to the designated department at the end of the day. I handled confidential material, payroll, and other items of top priority. While inside the mail room, I learned to perform administrative duties involving the monies in each postal machine, balancing the ascending and descending registers, and other duties related to running a mail room smoothly. – less
