Residence Hall Lobby Receptionist (Former Employee) – Valdosta, GA – January 5, 2016
The job was okay, not all employees opinions were heard. The RA's selected the hours to work first, the we chose our hours. We were often left with the graveyard shifts. Good if those are your primetime hours.
Great place to work. Great students, faculty, and Dean.

Student Assistant (Former Employee) – Valdosta, GA – July 27, 2015
This was a work study position. It was convenient and paid minimum wage. Just having money coming in every 2 weeks was good at that time. Being a study and working can be challenging so this position was perfect at the time.
Auxiliary Facilities Superintendent (Former Employee) – Valdosta, GA – June 30, 2015
Working at Valdosta State was overall a pleasant experience and a great college atmosphere. I made a lot friends there that I will keep for a lifetime. The middle management which I was a part of was competent and enjoyable for the most part. The upper management was extremely volatile and untrustworthy which is evident from the constant turnover and scandal.

Student Assistant (Current Employee) – Office of Student Life – June 23, 2015
Typically we spend most of our time acting as the hub of student life, hence the name Student Life Office. We take the time to ensure that students are aware of various aspects of student life as they are available on our wonderful campus. We not only inform students of these opportunities, but we also foster these opportunities through the volunteer services, Campus Activities Board, and the Student Union. All of these services fall under Student Life and present numerous events and possibilities for VSU community. The staff is very helpful, bright, and a humorous group of individuals. The director is a great leader and baker as well. We often get a good amount of free food or home baked goods, just because. The other student assistants and graduate assistants come and go, but they always add value to the office.

Academic Advisor in Mass Media Department (Former Employee) – Valdosta, GA – May 22, 2015
The most enjoyable part of the my job was working with college students and seeing them succeed in the academic world. The hardest part of the job is when a student does not care about their education. My co-workers all were great and supported each staff.

student worker/cashier (Former Employee) – valdosta ga – January 22, 2015
Very corrupt environment. Directors and department heads abuse the underpaid folks who do the actual work. Best part about the job is the fellow students.Since i graduated I can say this but the big bosses were very ugly to one of my managers in particular.
Cashier- Cashiered (Former Employee) – Valdosta, GA – January 9, 2015
A typical day at work began with prepping food for Quizno's including portioning the meats and slicing the tomatoes. I would also help cashier a little if we needed more people on the line. I would also periodically sweep the floors in the back and the dining area, refill the condiments, refill the napkin dispensers, and clean the windows.
This is when I learned how to cashier for the first time, which I dreaded at first, but I came to enjoy it and interacting with the customers. It made my and their day better.
Management was great. My supervisors and manager were great people, and we always had good times at work. Whenever I had a question or problem, they would always help me.
My co-workers were also enjoyable. We talked during down-time, and made our work enjoyable. We helped each other when we asked for it, and managed to get work done on time.
