Great staff and leadership, coowrokers were a charm, very fun job
Academic Tutor (Former Employee), Mitchell HallJanuary 20, 2013
Pros: learn science while tutoring, meet new people, help others
Cons: have to tutor more than one person at a time, but this actually makes it funner and makes time go by faster
As a tutor, I would meet science students and help them with everything from chemistry to genetics. I learned a lot about different people learn subjects differently, and this helps me learn how to adapt to different groups of people and adapt to different situations. The co-oworkers were a blast to work with; they taught me a lot about tutoring and – more... were funny and warm. The hardest part of the job is managing a big group of people when I am the only one tutoring. Sometimes this proves to be the most rewarding and sometimes big groups turn out to be a lot of fun. The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting new people and haring with them a love for the sciences. – less

Office Associate (Former Employee), Memphis, TNSeptember 29, 2012
Pros: benefits
Cons: favoritism
A typical day at work would consist of: reserving spaces for nursing events for various instructors, and running errands on campus.

The hardest part of the job – more... was keeping everybody happy. It was like walking a tightrope. What I liked most about the job was the diversity of the faculty, my co-workers as well as the students and potential students. – less

Italian Tutor (Former Employee), Memphis, TNAugust 29, 2012
Pros: excellent workplace
Being a language tutor and going to school was very fun at the University of Memphis. When assisting the students, you get that one on one experience and really get to tackle whatever trouble they are having. The boss was cool and everyone was easy going.
- I learned to single out problems better and to find the solution for them. I learned to communicate – more... better with students,
- The hardest part was when a student would ask me an advanced question that I barely knew the answer to and I would have to look for help myself on the internet.
- The most enjoyable part was getting to know my students and having an everyday conversation with them in italian. – less

Supervisor-Tony Johnson (Former Employee), Memphis, TNJuly 8, 2012
Everyday ended up carrying buckets from building to building even when a heat advisory was in effect. I actually didnt learn anything. It is the basics to cleaning a room/dorm. Management was hardly ever there. Co-workers were young and childish. Hardest part was carrying the buckets out in the heat. Most enjoyable part was getting off.
