We usually go out on a field work most of the days for completing different projects and saving data in a computer at the end of the day.I learned about being most successful for handling job alone sometime and I also learned about time management and team work spirit. My co-workers are really helpful and interactive with each members. I don't think there was any hardest part of job rather it was doable and enjoyable. So, most enjoyable part of the job is travelling, enjoying warm weather and interacting with clients.
A sound working environment, honest and trustworthy management
research assistant (Former Employee) – Toledo, OH – January 24, 2016
A nice working atmosphere, management is honest and trustworthy, benefits are however less but I actually satisfied as a part time employee in the University. The hardest part is to find out the innovative techniques to move forward in the research but I enjoyed when I fix the problem and get the desired problem.
Boys & Girls Club of Toledo (Former Employee) – Toledo, OH – October 21, 2015
Opportunity of a life time. I enjoy my experience and I made the most of it with the year I've spend there. I made long life friends and I also had the chance to meet important people who was involved on campus and in the classrooms.
Graduate Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Toledo, OH – October 6, 2015
A typical day at work includes cleaning, managing, sorting and analyzing huge databases for State Agency Project inaddition to website maintenance. Utilising tools to help small and medium sized industries to become energy efficient as a part of another State energy project is what we do in our lab as a team. My invidual project is on Climate Change and Public Transit Buses. My job as a Graduate Assistant have enabled me to learn various tools and methods to handle database and its security. It has taught me to be patient and even more hard working, efficient multi-tasker and punctual.
The hardest part would be to adjust the time I dedicate to the different projects each passing day and every hour. Also, keeping up with the fast pacedness of the demands of the job and coming up with innovative ideas to efficiently work on the databases.
The most enjoyable part is the amount of knowledge that can be gathered everyday from the trials to perform various operations accurately. Being able to take a break over a cup of coffee is something that makes me happy too.
Customer service based work with general office experience gained. Learned to manage cast and crew before the start of the production. The most enjoyable thing about this job is the productions and seeing the actors/actresses give dynamic performance.
Work pace is constant for the most part but the start of a new semester brings a lot of work to do in a short time period. Can be slow to enact change on certain aspects of procedures and slow to enact new technology.
My career with the university was not one I would like to enter into again. The typical day dealt with students who had no regard for senior authority and felt they had the right to expect everyone employed by the university to drop what they were doing to assist them.
This University provided an excellent engineering research opportunities along with highly qualified Professors. In addition to this it assisted students in generating part time working opportunities in the campus itself.
very un organized. I went over a month without pay. my supervisor left the week I started and I never seen her again. I was giving directions by another work study student who barely know what she was talking about.
