Relaxed, but positive atmosphere
Office Assistant (Former Employee) – Chapel Hill, NC – June 7, 2017
When I came in each morning, I immediately took the laundry from the Field House locker rooms to the laundromat facility and retrieved any that were already there ready to be returned. I hung the returned clothes on the appropriate locker hooks and went to down to the track. Once there I tidied up the equipment room and prepared the track for future practice by placing hurdles and cones in the desired places. After this was accomplished I went to the Coach I was assigned to. Here I preformed the rather simple clerical work necessary for each day. Once done I had time, waiting for any assignment that may come up. At the end of each workday I returned to the laundromat to check if the laundry had been completed and retrieve them if they were.
Overall, the job preformed its duty to give a job and source of income for college students. It was a relaxed, but supportive workplace culture. Management, in the form of the Track Coaches, were extremely helpful and understanding of any needs I had as a college student.
As a simple job, none of the work was particularly difficult. Assuring that I did not enter any track times incorrectly did take extra diligence due to the sometimes millisecond difference in recording times. Entering incorrectly may reflect back on the athlete in practice so such clerical errors needed to be avoided. Ironically, this clerical work was rather enjoyable as I knew it provided use for the track team.
