Teaching can be rewarding, but sometimes there are days...
Graduate Student Professor, Department of Physics (Former Employee), Logan, UT – October 1, 2014
I taught both very small and very large classes here, and both were rewarding in their own ways. Duties include designing a course syllabus, lecture content, exams, and (if necessary) laboratory experiments.

Facilitator (Former Employee), Logan, Utah – August 17, 2014
Pros: good pay, able to make own schedule, up to 30 hours a week.
Cons: lots of down time, a lot of sitting
I was a facilitator was USU, it was a really simple and laid back job. But you had a lot to take care of. A typical day would consist of the classes that I chose or had been assigned to me. I would go into the classroom 15-30 minutes before the class started. If it was an origination class -where the professor was in the classroom- I would turn on the – more... screens that they would need to see the other sites of classrooms and students. I would turn on the computer, make sure the camera had a good shot of the professor so the outer sites would be able to see. Then the classrooms around the state would connect and we would do a site check to make sure the presentation mode worked and could be seen. We would also make sure the other sites could hear the professors mic and we would have time before the class started to make adjustments. If it were a receive class -where it's just students- I would look in the "IN" box to see if there was anything for my class that day. I would make sure the student camera had a good shot for the professor to see. I would teach them about the mics in the room, since they differ a lot between classrooms. There was room to advance if the opportunity came, it could be scheduled around your school or personal schedule. You could get as many or as less hours as you wanted. I had many bosses really, but each was over a different part, if you needed help they were right there and got the problem fixed immediately. – less
This company is a very fast paced, team oriented place to work.

It keeps you on your toes because there is constant improvement and updating going on. They keep up with the new technology and the up and coming programs. There is always something to be learned and or something to work on. There is – more... never a dull moment. It also provides really great benefits. – less
Organic Chemistry Undergraduate Teaching Fellow (Current Employee), Logan, UT – April 21, 2014
Pros: work with professor and letter of recommendation
Cons: few work hours
I hold office hours twice a week to answer any questions that students would come in with. Every exam I hold a special two hour session with my partner to help students develop study goals and explain difficult concepts that they will be tested on. After the exam has been administered I work with the professor on campus to grade and alphabetize then – more... input scores into the computer. – less
Security specialist (Current Employee), Logan, UT – February 16, 2014
Pros: insurance, job security, time off
Cons: managment uneducated, pay is low, limited to growth possibilities.
Excellent place to work to get into the trades. Management uses the "good ole boy" system which leaves education or experience null and void in the place of growing in the ranks. The hardest part of the job is working under a foreman that does not have training in the field you are working. Often times if you run into problems you can't go to the experience – more... boss for assistance because he often will not have that experience. The best part of the job is the leniency for time off if you have something you need to do it merely make the foreman aware you won't be in and as long as you got time you'll be fine. – less
Tutor for Student Athlete Services (Former Employee), Logan, UT – October 21, 2013
Tutoring student athletes was a fun job to do. typically i would meet with a student for an hour and help them understand whatever they are having trouble with. Also help them prep for exams and such. The hardest part of the job was getting student who don't care about their classes to care and do well.
