As teacher assistant of the control course and laboratory I have the opportunity to share the students some of the experience acquired during my professional life. I like always to make a relation about what we learn and how could be applied in the industry.
Stressful work enviroment with little to no leeway
Research Technician (Current Employee) – Tampa, FL – February 3, 2016
The Principal Investigator was very demanding on the individuals that were producing good data and expected there to be little to no problems. There were individuals that have been working there for a long time and did very little work. Often times they did not present any data and on top of that were not pressured as much. He also expected us to work weekends (without overtime) to produce data. I was the most junior researcher in the lab and, due to my good work was given my own project. As time progressed I was given more and more responsibilities and was given no reciprocity aside from the occasional "good work!".

Undergraduate Research Assistant (Current Employee) – Tampa, FL – January 26, 2016
I have had great mentors, and working with great people. This is a nice way to get out of the class room and get goo hands on experience with the guidance of people that have more experience in the field.
Sound and Light Technician (Current Employee) – Tampa, FL – January 20, 2016
Minimum wage, terrible bosses, no oppotunity for advancement, no training, promotion from outside rather than within. Worst job I've ever had. And it's boring. There's often nothing to do. I'm applying for jobs and writing this review while working right now.
Every department is different in the way the staff is treated
Fiscal & Business Specialist (Current Employee) – Tampa, FL – January 18, 2016
I am a current employee and i know my work but I do not have backup in the event I am vacation or sick. I have to work relentless to get caught upon returning from my absence. Promoting from within is not always practiced. Wonderful organization but I am relocating to NYC
As the project manager I had a great time working with the City of Oldsmar; and all of the utilities and well drilling companies. The team was very excited to win FWRC and enjoyed the experience of WEFTEC at Chicago. The whole project was a learning experience, as this was the first time I held the responsibility of manager. The teachers were very helpful, as well as the team.
Program Assistant for Graduate Admissions (Former Employee) – tampa fl – October 5, 2015
I learned a lot working for USF. What i loved the most is interacting and assisting the students. There was a lot of room for advancement. It was a stress free environment and the management was excellent.
Janitor (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – September 29, 2015
A typical day at work for me would be, going in at 8:30am getting my cart ready and stocked up with supplies I may need to get my day started. Start walking down the hallways of the school towards the first side of the buildings bathrooms where I did my janitorial work, (example: change toilet papers, refill napkins, refill soap dispenser, clean mirrors, toilets, stalls, and floors, throwing out trash). There were 14 bathrooms total I had to get in order and clean at least 3x's a day, plus labs, offices, and classrooms. The most enjoyable part of my day, would be cleaning the windows outside of the building as well as inside, and maintaining it leaf free outside. That gave me some time to breath in the fresh air (instead of chemical fumes) and enjoy the florida sun.
