Wonderful but affected by budget cut
Faculty research assistant (Current Employee), College Park, MDFebruary 27, 2015
Pros: enrichment of activities
Cons: retirement benefit
I worked like a lab manager. Routinely check all lab instruments and inventories. Some time, prepare all the needs for a big experiment. Team work with lab graduate students. The hardest part of the job is time waiting during cell staining. The most enjoyable part of the job is that there is always a little celebration once lab has a new publication.

Great Way to Learn a Teaching Experience
Teacher Assistant (Former Employee), College Park, MDFebruary 25, 2015
Pros: familiar and friendly environment
Cons: low compensation, no job security
I was responsible for performing teaching and teaching-related duties to assist a professor for an undergraduate course I had previously taken. The list of responsibilities include: proctoring exams, grading tests and homework, and recording grades in grade book. Office Hours to meet up with students were flexible. Only time that is non-flexible were the discussion lectures, where I aided in leading a discussion seminar to dissect what had been discussed. This was my favorite part of the job, where I get to explain in my own terms what I had interpreted from the professor's lectures.

Very Enjoyable place to work
Teachers Aide (Former Employee), College Park, MDFebruary 5, 2015
A typical day at work would include reading books to children, helping children during center time, monitoring children on the playground, and monitoring children during nap time. During this job I learned a lot about how to work with others in a professional manner. I also learned a lot about child development as well as how to respond to children at the preschool level.

Research Assistant (Former Employee), College Park, MDFebruary 4, 2015
Earned my MPH here, and they provided entry level of research experiences for me. Sometimes I did face tough times and challenges from the professors, but the harder they push, I guess the more I force myself to grow up improve my professional skills.

Productive workplace with wonderful co-workers
General Assistant (Former Employee), College Park, MDJanuary 22, 2015
Working part-time for the Residential Facilities at the University of Maryland, College Park Campus was a wonderful opportunity to meet new people and gain new experience. My organization and team work skills were improved each day as I worked with other employees or alone to complete each task that needed to be done. Each task was important to help in the Campus' preparations for the next semester and the students and faculty that would be living, working and learning at the college. I thoroughly enjoyed working with everyone there, and I gained new skills by completing tasks that I would never have thought were necessary to keep the campus an excellent place to live and work.

Our managers were personable, friendly and understanding, and they helped to make each day an enjoyable one. It was difficult work at times, and at other times it was tedious; however, at the end of the summer it was rewarding to know that everything that needed to be done had been completed, and that the campus was ready for the next semester and the students that would be filling it.

A job is a job.
Financial Aid Counselor (Former Employee), Largo, MDJanuary 13, 2015
Pros: working with students and other co-workers
Cons: most people in management do not know how to relate to their employees.
It was good working there in helping me get my bachelors and helping me with my masters. However, because of management turnover it becomes more politics. You are not commended on your good deeds, but often you are told about your mistakes and this is due to changes in policies. If you just want a job temporarily then this is the place for you.
The students I worked with were very nice and understanding, and most of them are my close friends to this day. Some of my former co-workers are still friends and most of them are trying to leave.

Administrative I (Former Employee), College Park, MDJanuary 5, 2015
Pros: supplied free lunches and christmas week off
Cons: pay and lack of bonuses and cost of living
A lot of interaction with students from all over the Globe. I would assist the office staff, faculty, and students.Our goal was to give the best educational training to the students for them to reach their goals.

I was the face of the office receiving guests and students as the Receptionist Administrative associate of the Curriculum and Instruction (now, Teaching, Learning, Policy and Leadership) office of the Department of Education. I would answer and transfer callers to the appropriate staff member, or faculty member. I maintained the supplies and machinery of the office. I sent out and received the mail, faxes, copies, packages for office staff and faculty. I entered secure student data in the database so I am knowledgeable about the HIPAA rules and requirements. I ordered supplies and book orders for the office and faculty. I was responsible for the card swipe access and keys for the offices and classrooms. I managed the conference rooms and scheduled access for meetings.
