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

Graduate Research Assistant (Current Employee), Logan, UT – September 24, 2012
Pros: nice people, great environment, inexpensive life
Cons: far from big cities or industrial centers
Most professors are very dedicated to education and students can access them easily for discussion or advice. The research projects are diverse in types and sizes.

The facilities are complete and most technical skills required in industry can – more... be obtained here at school during a graduate program. – less

USU is a great school and an awesome place to work for.
undergraduate teaching fellow (Former Employee), Logan, UT – July 1, 2012
I worked with a college professor every once in a while for a semester. He would assign me tasks and I was allowed to complete any of them on my own time. I didn't have very difficult tasks but the most time consuming was making copies of texts books for over 700 students. I learned that being a professor is quite the busy life.

Most students came back and thanked us for being in their lives during their high school years. – less
Math/Statistics Tutor (Former Employee), Logan, UT – May 11, 2012
Pros: flexible scheduling, and lots of personal interaction.
Cons: no benefits and pay wasn't great.
This job was very flexible around my hectic school schedule, and the managers gave each tutor respect and encouragement. A typical day would be entering the tutoring lab where students would be doing homework and studying their subjects of math or statistics. If they had a question they would write their name on a board and I, or another tutor, would – more... assist them in answering their questions and helping them understand the material better. We also helped students get into habits for solving complex problems on their own. It was an excellent job because I could see the difficult problems come into focus as I helped tutor students. – less

The most enjoyable part of the job is that the workplace is very conducive to successful completion of projects because facilities and other relevant support are readily available. – less
