A wonderful opportunity for student workers!
Project / Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Eugene, OROctober 18, 2013
Pros: very flexible and accomodating hours while attending college.
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 – more... 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. – less

Dishwasher (Former Employee), Eugene, OROctober 3, 2013
Pros: free lunch
Get to work, start up the dish washer. Turn the music on. Get in the zone and all of the sudden it's time to leave. The students I worked with were all so fun. The hardest part was definitely dealing with 180 degree water, but that wasn't even that big of a problem.

The Best College Job
Student Ambassador, Student Orientation Programs (Former Employee), Eugene, OROctober 1, 2013
Pros: met many important people around the uo
I served as a student ambassador for the University of Oregon my senior year of college. My one regret is that I didn't start this job sooner. I looked forward to going to work everyday. That isn't always the case in today's world. My job was to lead prospective students and their families around the beautiful University of Oregon. The tour last 90 – more... minutes and I was speaking for the majority of that time. I have excellent public speaking skills which I was able to prove everyday. Along with this job, we are sent to speak at receptions to current high school seniors who are about to embark on the journey of college. I was fortunate enough to speak a few times around the state and share my story. The hardest part of the job was encountering families who weren't excited about college or the UO. But every other part of being a student ambassador was excellent. If I could find a job that combined public speaking, traveling, and working to establish a relationship with others-that would be my ideal job. – less

Solid job that is nicely structured
Custodian (Former Employee), Eugene, ORAugust 7, 2013
Pros: the job molds to you.
Cons: to much union protection
If you want to learn about all aspects of custodial work you can. You can also work the bare minimum. If you prove yourself there is room for advancement. Good benefits. Safety first job. You can get a good routine or get some challenges working.

Too much divisiveness between haves and have nots
Web Developer (Former Employee), COEMarch 16, 2013
Pros: good bennies
Cons: top heavy management. 4 to 1 but should be 10 employees to each 1 manager
Classified (union) employees get paid poor wages! Unclassified have no job security. Way too top heavy with management! Climate varies a lot depending what department you work for. I ended up with a bully boss who got away with everything and answered to no one. One plus: very good insurance and retirement compared to the private sector.

Excellent environment to learn, work, and grow!
Computer Lab Assistant (Former Employee), Lundquist School of BusinessNovember 24, 2012
Pros: beautiful environment and people
Cons: lots of rain, but a small price to pay for the beauty it creates.
I should have never left the U of O.

Wonderful environment in all ways; the weather (if you love rain), the air, the trees, the people, and the concern for our, and the planet's future.

Loved working at the Knight Library, and the Lundquist School of Business Computer Lab.

Graduate Teaching Assistant
Teacher's Assistant (Former Employee), Anthropology departmentApril 30, 2012
Pros: pays for school plus small salary.
Cons: grading papers is a lot of work, during finals week none the less.
Graduate Teaching Fellowship is a fun way to pay for graduate school while helping the professor and undergraduate students. If you qualify for financial support, for that is. If teaching the students directly is your thing, teaching a discussion section is available. Some classes even allow experienced GTFs to teach a full class. The only downside – more... is grading the students papers and homework. – less
