Project / Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Eugene, OR – October 18, 2013
As an administrative assistant I generated and closed work orders, encumbered monies on contractors' supplemental contracts, acted as liason between building tenants, contractors, and management. Maintained communications between the aforementioned players, via telephone and email. Ordered parts and supplies through the U of O's Purchasing Dept. Our crew was responsible for 17 off-campus properties.
I learned a great deal about the inner-workings of property management, and became proficient in the use of FAMIS software, MS Office and MS Access.
I had a manager and group of co-workers whom I respect and like very much.
Though this job was challenging at times, I didn't find it difficult in any way.
The most enjoyable part of the job was helping my coworkers.
Very flexible and accomodating hours while attending college.
Scientist (Current Employee) – Eugene, OR – December 11, 2017
With the investment of the Knights family, there will be a lot more cutting-edge science taking place at the UO. In general, the atmosphere is relaxed, which doesn't mean that people are not hardworking. There is some good science being done here.
