For a week, I spent time preparing for orientation week. I spent time learning about all the resources the University provides for the students. We also had to keep track of all the mandatory events the first year students were expected to attend. Then during orientation week I was expected to guide the first year students through orientation week, enforce University behavior policies, and provide them with advice in their first year as a college student. The hardest and most enjoyable part was being put into a situation where I had to be a leader to those who were a year younger or the same age as me. It helped me build my leadership skills and helped me to become more comfortable in that type of position.
Lab Monitor (Current Employee) – Department of Art and Design – March 1, 2016
My job in the photo and design department has helped me teach students in usage of equipment and darkroom skills. My small amount of power here has given me the chance to educate my peers while also becoming more confident in my own abilities. The facilities promote community learning and efficiency in professional quality equipment.
35-hour full-time week - 8:30 am-4:30 pm. Educational benefits for employee and family. Learned a lot about academia. Family/community atmosphere. Students are wonderful to work with. The university's foundation in the Catholic Marianist order is something I value greatly although I am not Catholic. Very inclusive of other faiths or no faith. The most enjoyable part of my job is working with the students.
Advancement is limited and salary is not very competitive
I learned a great deal from the co-founder of Abolition Ohio about the modern slavery industry. It was rewarding to help work on the school curriculum in hopes that this subject will be taught in our schools in order to bring awareness to our young people.
My day to day responsibilities are to do film editing, everyday tasks the coaching staff might need and going to every practice to make sure the run smoothly. I set up and tear down the practice facility as well as make sure we have all the equipment needed for road trips. The job calls for great time management, organization and multi-tasking skills so that the tasks are completed on time and in a way for the program to be successful.
A wonderful place to work while getting your degree
SENIOR CUSTOMER SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE (Current Employee) – Dayton, OH – May 27, 2015
This is a great place to work while obtaining your degree or putting your children through college. Unfortunately, that's where it stops. The non-academic employees are not valued and there is little opportunity for professional growth or movement. The mantra seems to be "That's how we've always done it, and the is no reason to change things".
Little to no opportunity for professional growth or advancement
Overall, great place to work. The hours are decent, the supervisors don't give more than you can handle, and I was definitely pushed to develop my chemical, analytical, presentation, and speaking skills further than I have in previous jobs.
A typical day was fulfilling work orders and furniture replacements when furniture was available. All in all management was fantastic and the overall work environment was busy at times but for the most part very laid back. I learned a lot and the most important lesson I learned on the job was how to lead and follow as a member of a team ranging from 3-12 people. The hardest part of the job was not becoming frustrated when a particular job was overtly tedious or unnecessary.
