Tour Guide (Current Employee), Admissions CottageDecember 1, 2014
Pros: free t-shirts, jackets, hats
As a tour guide I tour perspective students around the college campus. Perspective students can range from high school students, students looking to transfer, international students and cross country students. I have learned extensive information about the college. If there are no students to tour, I work in an office setting filing important paperwork and transcripts of students.

Fish Caretaker (Former Employee), Biddeford, MEMay 14, 2014
Pros: fit easily around class schedule, worked with sea creatures.
Cons: poor-quality scrubber often fell apart; hands smelled like fish afterward.
On a normal day, I would go into the Marine Science Center and retrieve a herring from the freezer. I would then remove the head and tail and cut the remaining part into bite-sized pieces. These would be fed to the marine organisms in the aquariums until all had eaten. Later on I was also given the task of cleaning algae from the sides of the Gulf of Maine tank. As this was a small group of people, I had few coworkers, all of whom were easy to get along with. Our supervisor is a thoughtful individual who concerns herself with our everyday well-being.
