Job Work/Life Balance
Volunteer Lab Assistant (Current Employee) – Boulder, CO – January 12, 2016
No matter which area of campus I worked for, the experience has always been incredible. Whether it was the people or what I was learning to do, I always felt as though my interests were being fostered.
incredible flexability to tolerate politics in the office workplace
Health Care Tech (Current Employee) – Boulder, CO – May 6, 2012
A typical day its never boring what I learned is you can never succeed the manager (s)does not allow you to grow to be better than them and if you make a mistake they will never let you forget that it was a mistake and bring it up continually throughout your time there as an employee. Most co-workers are there its nor a job or career but a paycheck Hardest part of the job is to ignore the junk the staff get away with even if its not politically correct The most enjoyable part of the job is the interaction with the college students, where they come from what they are doing there where they are going and where they have been and to give them knowledge to help them help themselves relating to there health without making them feel ashamed of why they are there.
the providers are good to work with, they are very helpful and understanding
mas don't utilize all skills learned in school, the schedule changes on hourly basis, to many inconsistancies
Great Job! Good connections with Architecture Staff, Professors and Educators. This job worked well with my class schedules.
Administrative Assistant, Peer Advisor (Former Employee) – Boulder, CO – January 7, 2014
A typical day consists of working the front desk, making appointments with students and their academic advisers, answering phones, filing, mailing, organizing and cleaning. I was also in charge of opening and closing the office, building inspections for safety, clear fire exits and repairs needed. I was able to help instructors, making copies and doing other tasks. I also delivered mail and FCQ's to them. I was able to help fellow students register and choose classes needed to graduate. I set up rooms for lectures and other events and I helped with Graduations. My co-workers were other students and friends, we all worked different shifts. My supervisor and I got along very well. I learned much about the College of Architecture and Planning. I enjoyed my interaction with students, staff, professors and instructors.
Finance Assistant (Former Employee) – Boulder, CO – May 13, 2013
If you are part of the classified staff (state) versus professional (university) you may have difficulty in getting promoted to the other level. I did not receive a raise the whole time I worked there because the state never had the funding. I enjoyed my job and the people I worked with, but being employee of the state was very difficult.
Worked in the field collecting resistivity data for the Boulder Creek CZO
Student Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Boulder, CO – July 9, 2013
During the summer of 2012 I worked as a student research assistant in the Boulder Creek Critical Zone Observatory. My responsibilities involved using EM-31 and DC Resistivity surveying techniques to map out the changes in conductivity of the upper fifty feet of the critical zone. Once the data was layered onto a topographic map of the region, correlations could be made between conductivity and areas of high weathering.
Fast paced equipment rental facility for students.
Kage Front Desk (Former Employee) – Boulder, CO – September 11, 2015
Daily tasks included checking in and out film equipment, transfer film to digital media, and providing input about equipment to the vast majority of the student body. Cameras ranged from 8mm to HD so I had to be knowledgeable for all questions that were asked. I was the go to employee that students would direct their editing questions to.
Undergraduate Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Boulder, CO – May 12, 2015
I loved working as an undergraduate research assistant while going to school full-time at CU/ Boulder. I learned so much more in just a few hours per week than even the students in classroom labs learned, and really found my passion working in a laboratory there.
former classified staff (Former Employee) – Boulder, CO – January 22, 2013
Managers manage to get big bucks for doing nothing. Classified employees receive unfair wages because all the funding is directed to coaches' monthly bonuses. Unproductive atmosphere - have you seen the show "The Office"?
free classes that you can't take because you must work
A learning experience in front and behind the lecturn
Instructor (Former Employee) – Boulder, CO – September 6, 2015
Covered tuition plus a stipend in return for instructor effort. A very good deal and extremely fun due to energetic students and good advisorship. Classes get hectic when teaching but learning to manage groups is key to the job experience.
Student (Former Employee) – Boulder, CO – August 20, 2015
Productive workplace with great facilities allowing for a lot of hands on experience. Labs were plentiful allowing experience to be gained with multiple chemistry techniques and equipment. Labs were difficult but allowed for extensive knowledge to be developed.
