Productive and fun workplace
Work Study Recreational Referee (Current Employee), Scranton, PAFebruary 27, 2014
A typical work day is just a few hours and you just control each game. I learned how to take control and be assertive in my actions. Co-workers are great, we work great together. Hardest part of the job is keeping each game under control, sometimes things can get out of hand.

Staff issues
Instructor (Current Employee), Scranton, PAJune 22, 2013
Pros: job security
Cons: lack of advancement, pay, division structures, and soon to be financial challenges from lack of enrollment and accrediation.
The university has a great and committed faculty unit. The area of concern was in the professional staff component, In particular the student affairs division. It is such a small unit that it has no room to grow. This is also noted in the people that work in the division being career lower middle managers. Little turnover for those that lack the ability to perform in the position also adds to significant concerns related to the development in the position. Job security is great as it is impossible to make a mistake that gets you removed from your role. Prepare to have little to work life balance as the dean and vice president expect to have a personal life and you are expected to do more work to make that happen.

Good work. good people and atmosphere. Workstudy
Work Study Employee (Former Employee), Scranton, PASeptember 18, 2012
My responsibilities were to man the reception desk if there were no other workstudies or staff members at the desk, take messages off the answering machine of students or guardians and call them back, answer walk in, and answer phone calls. I was also to direct anyone where I was either unable to or not allowed to answer the questions to other staff members. Other responsibilities were to scan documents into a computer system where I was also to index them.

It was my first job but I know the management was handled very well. They were lenient when necessary and strict when required.

Everyone had a good sense of humor and it felt like another family.

Hardest part of the job was trying to handle difficult callers or walk ins who didn't listen to the information I was giving them. Also rude people were difficult to handle.

The most enjoyable part is when the students or guardians are kind and thankful when I was helping them out. Also what was enjoyable was just working with my co-workers.
