Receptionist (Former Employee), Austin, TX – September 16, 2013
Pros: got to study, meet new people, easy to get shifts covered
Cons: employer change makes a difference
When I first got hired, I got hired as a filler receptionist, which meant I filled in the rest of the hours that were needed. That consisted of 17 hours a week in addition to the job I currently worked at Chili's and being a full-time student. Being a receptionist at the Sanger Learning Center meant clocking in students with numbered pins to either – more... Math, Physics, or Chemistry tutoring. We helped out with printing out hand-outs, running errands to other buildings, or projects that were assigned by our boss. I became more familiar with Word and Excel and commercial printers. It was a nice job to have and my co-workers were other students with the same goal in mind: getting work done in a timely manner. The hardest part of the job really was just getting studying in because clocking students in could entail in reading the same paragraph for a while. The best part of the job really were the people. Creating good healthy relationships is always rewarding. – less
One of the most rewarding experiences I've ever had.
Team Leader (Former Employee), Austin, TX – November 26, 2012
Pros: making an impact on people's lives.
The structure of this project was a bit different: I was with a group of 12 team leaders who were tasked with delivering the instruction portion of a three day student leadership conference. The University provided all of the logistics and scheduling work.
We worked for several hours every Saturday morning from December 2011 to when the conference – more... to place, March 2012. During the week, it was up to us as individuals to design our workshops and tweek them as we saw fit. On Saturdays we would come together and provide constructive criticism as a team, and work on portions of the conference that were collaborative.
I learned that I really enjoy connecting with people, as that was by far the most enjoyable part of my experience. I had a little bit older and had a little more experience than the average student in my workshop, so I really enjoyed passing along the wisdom I've attained over the years so that they may realize their potential. – less
Swimming and Diving Instructor (Former Employee), Austin, TX – September 14, 2012
Pros: swimming pool was open, hands on environment, flexible hours, good management
Cons: hours of the day
This was a job while I was in college. They were very flexible with my hours and they allowed me to balance school and work. Management was very understanding of a college kid needing money as well as to help a student do well in school. This opened up many doors as far as networking.
I enjoyed working here because it was internally rewarding. Helping – more... those around me learn to swim felt good.
Hardest part was the traffic to make it to work. – less

Scientist Assistant (Current Employee), Austin, TX – July 25, 2012
It is a very productive lab. Everyone is responsible for driving their own projects forward. There is enough funding to support many on-going projects.
