Data Entry (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – March 28, 2017
To be a small on campus company, it was good. Gives you the opportunity to connect with people that you may be able to establish professional bonds with. The position was part time so there were no benefits available.
As a work study student, this position taught me the greatness of building a career and mindset of a future go-getter. I learned the meaning of being a reliable individual for yourself as well as for your team.

Resident Tutor (Former Employee) – Maryville, MO – January 5, 2017
A typical day at UBMS provided a good balanced between free time and actual labor. I learned a great a deal about conflict resolution and micromanagement. The co-workers, though different throughout the summers, were absolutely awesome! Though it was hard physically living within the camp for 6 weeks, the rewards of seeing inner-city youth grow, both intellectually and socially, was indeed worth it.
Free commodities and field trips
Frequent lack of communication between employer and new hires.
It was a few experience at the upward bound internship.
