Custodial Worker (Former Employee) – Hattiesburg, MS – July 23, 2016
I was an ok job. it made enough money to get the bills paid. I prefer to never work there again tho. Co workers is what makes it the worst they complain everyday about the same old stuff. If you try to move up then they really do not like you because you are not just like them.
Volleyball Camp Leader (Former Employee) – Hattiesburg, MS – September 12, 2014
Each day at camp with focuses on a variety of skills including passing, setting and hitting. We go to go through several drills to help them get hands on experience with the game. Once having gone through the drills and games needed, we divided the girls onto teams to initiate an actual game. The toughest part of the job is being able to find the correct coaching method that works for each girl. Every athlete is different. They each learn by different coaching methods. Coaching is my passion and after each girl that I coach, I learn something different. These girls teach me just as much as I teach them. For me, however, it is so rewarding to get to see these girls become better at something they love and to know that I played a part in that.
Teaching Assistant (Current Employee) – Microbiology – March 13, 2015
Research and teaching microbiology. I have learned many skills from planning and time management, creativity and lateral thinking, ability to read and understand people and of course excellent presentation skills.
Very tough work, but the fellow grad students are very supportive.
Graduate Research Assistant (Current Employee) – Hattiesburg, MS – February 5, 2014
I worked here as a graduate researcher. As with any other graduate program there is a lot expected. The work is very difficult and takes up most of your time. The atmosphere, however, in the Polymer Science department at Southern Miss is exceptional. The other graduate students (fellow employees) create an environment that is pleasant to work in through a culture of mutual support.
Productive and meaningful experiences with diverse families, university students, children and colleagues
Family Resource Coordinator (Current Employee) – Hattiesburg, MS – December 3, 2013
The most wonderful aspect of the University of Southern Mississippi's Center for Child Development is the commitment to instilling a life-long love and zeal for learning for young children while also promoting the appreciation and application of developmentally appropriate, best practices for early childhood educational approaches, family-centered developmental interventions and relationship-based, constructivist learning.
knowledgable in dap, culturally diverse, rewarding
911 Telecommunicator (Current Employee) – Hattiesburg, MS – June 8, 2014
A typical day at work is long and laid back. I've learned a great deal about the campus and the management is pretty good. My co-workers are very understanding if I need to switch days with someone to take care of business. The hardest part of my job is hearing people crying about a certain incident. The most enjoyable will be some of my co workers.
Graduate Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – Hattiesburg, MS – January 9, 2012
Small, well organized and maintained campus in Hattiesburg with excellent library facilities. USM has an first-rate polymer science department, in particular. In addition to Geography and Geology in Walker Science Building there is also an extension campus on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, and a Coastal Research program affiliated with Geography and Geology based out of Stennis Space Center. Coastal Research enjoys first-rate laboratory and research facilities operating within a government installation.
Resident Assistant (Former Employee) – Hattiesburg, MS – May 29, 2012
Being an RA for USM is a largely person to person experience since so much is dependent on the Hall and Residents you supervise. The requirements for every position however are tantamount to jumping through hopes so the University can claim to be making a difference in student lives. The Dept of Res Life actually think that RA Programs will affect retention rates which is asinine. It is free room and board though so it does come recommended.
Law Enforcement Officer (Former Employee) – Hattiesburg, MS – June 13, 2012
A typical day at work was the night shift. I preformed the normal duties of patrol officer. I learned never to accept things as they appear. Dig untill you find the truth. I learned to treat everyone fairly as in the way I would want any member of my family to be treated. Management supported us by allowing the night shift to preform its duties with minimum supervision. The co-workers I had came from differnt back grounds, but we worked well together to do ou jobs. The hardest part of the job was sleeping during the day. When someone would tell you that you had made a positive impact on their life.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Hattiesburg Ms – October 3, 2013
A typical day at work can be fast paste, but I've learned to satisfy one person at a time. I've learned a lot at the university and I'm still learning how to adjust to different personalities and different needs. My manager and co-workers work together in getting tasks completed that's why I enjoy working with them and around them. The hardest part of my job is trying to please everyone everyday, I've learned that it's impossible to please everyone everyday, so whatever services I render, I do it with a warm smile and gratitude. I enjoy my job because I get the chance to interact with a lot of diverse people and backgrounds. It's fun interacting with them and learning from them. I enjoy the knowledge and encouragement I'm receiving.
Graduate Teaching Assistant (Current Employee) – Hattiesburg, MS – April 12, 2012
Teaching at USM has been delightful. I feel like I have the control to teach my students the way I'd like to, and that my pedagogical choices are supported. Taking teaching risks is encouraged, which keeps things fresh, and my abilities ever-growing.
Desk Assistant (Former Employee) – Hattiesburg, MS – August 3, 2012
The job very rarely became a high stress situation, but when it did, there were usually other co-workers that would come and help. The hardest part were the emergencies that would require specific wording when writing an incident report, but the enjoyable parts of the job were when we were able to build a community with the residents
