Disciplined and Inspiring
Volunteer Assistant Distance Coach (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OHMay 15, 2015
I help administer practices with the head coach. We help prepare the student athletes for competition and to reach optimal performance. It is important to keep the athletes motivated and inspired so they can wake up everyday looking to improve from the day before. The coaches all get along and the most enjoyable part about this position is seeing the athletes succeed after all the hard work they put in.

Great colleagues, poor structure
Adjunct Clinical Instructor (Current Employee), Cincinnati, OHMay 15, 2015
It's almost impossible to find out anything from HR or to get assistance with questions. No one knows anything... It's a big ole' bureaucracy. Otherwise, it's a great place to teach.

Lively and Easy to Learn Workplace
Undergraduate Research Assistant (Current Employee), Cincinnati, OHMay 10, 2015
Pros: Supportive supervisors, able to work on my own time
Cons: Time management
When I first started working in the molecular genetics laboratory, I was horrible at creating gels for electrophoresis. However, my supervisors supported me and after practice, I was eventually able to give myself the title "gel-making guru". A typical day at work in the lab consists of making gels, cleaning equipment, autoclaving glassware, and mixing buffers for the researchers to use. Most of my – more... co-workers were masters or doctoral students, and they were always conducting their own experiments. Because of this, there was never much interaction between them other than my supervisor who told me what needed to be done. the hardest part of the job was time management, as I was still an undergraduate taking classes. I was always able to come in at least twice a week, but I had to work around my classes and homework time. The most enjoyable part of the job was constantly being around science and learning about different chemicals and how experiments were run. – less

A congenial, encouraging atmosphere
Annual Adjunct Professor of English (Current Employee), Cincinnati, OHMarch 22, 2015
Pros: small classes; free classes at any uc campus; promotion
Cons: i really wish i had an office, even if i had to share with someone.
I usually teach on a Monday, Wednesday, Friday schedule, although this coming fall, I will be teaching Tuesdays and Thursdays. My colleagues, both full and part-time, are very congenial and my supervisors have always been supportive in adjusting my schedule to family needs and in helping me resolve occasional conflicts with students (such as complaints regarding a grade). The most enjoyable aspect – more... of my job is the opportunity to work with students of various ages and backgrounds, from high school students taking college classes to older adults who are returning to school. It's amazing how well these different groups of learners get along and what they learn from one another! Most of the students, both young and old, seem enthused and glad to be at the college. I guess the hardest part of my job is grading papers: It's necessary to be both critical and encouraging and to make sure that I grade fairly. (I've learned that I cannot grade papers when I'm tired or stressed because I tend to miss problems that I would not overlook if I were more rested. This might result in a higher grade for some students, but those whose papers I read under better circumstances may receive lower marks!)

In addition to teaching English, I've had the opportunity to teach some classes in Latin. I love this"'dead" language and was disappointed that because of falling enrollment, Clermont did not go offer it this year. Most of my former Latin students seemed interested in the course, probably because it was an elective. Overall, my years at Clermont have been very happy. – less

Good place to get research experience
Teaching Assistant / Research Assistant (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OHFebruary 15, 2015
Pros: good smart people everywhere
Cons: low pay, long hours
This is a good place to get good research experience. There are a lot of top quality professors and learning how to work with them will require that you always be respectful and work hard. Gaining and keeping the good favor of the professor you work directly under is crucial. I learned invaluable details about how various instruments and detectors work, how different chemical tests are done, and also how to comb through research material. The vast majority of my co-workers were immigrants from Asian countries. This posed some language issues, but at the same time I developed main phenomenal relationships.
