Pros: flexible work hours, easy payroll schedule
Cons: low pay, little chance for advancement
My typical day at work and school is very sporadic due to the many jobs and classes I juggle in a day. Working on-campus, however, has allowed this life style by being flexible with work hours. The atmosphere is different for each of these employers, as they are all from different departments, but each one has been open and friendly during my time as an employee.
I learned many life skills associated with working in and office setting and a lab setting. While being an office worker, I learned how to work with customers in person as well as over the phone. My judgement and critical thinking through problems has been improved by being a Financial Aid adviser. Through my work in labs, I have become more confident in my personal judgement and analysis of experimental results. It was most enjoyable being given the opportunity to individually run experiments and lab work. I feel this hands on learning experience will be the most help to me in my future as I search for another lab position. The most difficult part of these positions was getting certain lab equipment to work with specific experiments, but that is a problem common to any job position.
