Teachers assistant (Current Employee), University of Central MissouriSeptember 8, 2014
As a teachers assistant I would typically handle every assignment a student would turn into the professor. Then my job would be to input grades into our blackboard system, then answer any additional questions students had about their grade.

Great co-workers. Every day has it's own challenges
Admission's Processor (Current Employee), Warrensburg, MOAugust 24, 2014
Pros: 2 breaks and a long lunch every day, great health care, vacation and sick leave benefits
My co-workers make this place feel like a second home. They have become like family to me. They are there for me if I have a professional or personal problem. We work directly under the assistant director who is rather easy going, he will do what he can to help out when we are swamped with work and give us "busy" work when things are slow. The hardest – more... part is generally telling students they are denied, but it helps when we can give them some guidance on where they can go from there. The other hard thing can be dealing with constant interruptions from advisors and phone calls. – less

Steady Hours for the time the job is open
Custodial Worker (Current Employee), Warrensburg, MOJuly 5, 2014
Pros: get off fairly early in the day, lots of people to meet, steady work schedule
Cons: short lunches and breaks, can be hectic, lazy coworkers, temp. job
normally work begins at 7 am here, when you clock in, you're designated to your work area and listen for any further instructions as well. you will mainly be cleaning rooms with many coworkers but you clean your own suites most of the time. you get two breaks and a lunch of thirty minutes. you typically leave at 3:30 or 4 depending on the day shift – more... you are given at orientation.

the coworkers are often people your same age group but not always and if you're looking for a social job then you might like it although the pay is minimal. mine happen to all speak another language and i'm the only female this year so its quite irritating and lonely at times.

management is another ordeal. the former residential director left this year so the new present one is unknown but i will tell you this: expect chaos and a lot of sudden change-ups. more often than not, we're rushed to start a project or on an area for cleaning before they decide to send you somewhere else instead. there's one person in charge who just has an awful attitude and she will talk to you like you're dirt but just control yourself and you'll be fine. you rarely see her anyways.

I can't say that i learned much considering I've been experienced for a good while before this position, but i did learn how to do floor work such as laying finish to make the floor tile shine.

the hardest part had to be not being recognized for the actual amount of work you do everyday. You go everyday on time, and work yourself to exhaustion, silently hoping someone might notice you standing out and might give you a chance at a stable job. for me, that's the hardest because you know you are under-paid and unappreciated but you still have to keep going.

I suppose the most enjoyable aspect, if there is one, is all the different kinds of people you can meet. And sometimes goodies are brought in if the crew does a real good job as a whole.

this is a seasonal temp. position so if you're looking for work to hold you by until school as a student or if you just need the extra cash, then its a fairly decent start. – less
