My job was to clean office buildings. I learned that managing your time was crucial. The management was pleasurable. I loved all of my co-workers. The hardest part of the job would have to be not stressing over the small things. The most enjoyable part of my job was my co-workers.

@Valpoweather
@Valpoweather (Current Employee), Valparaiso, INJune 23, 2014
Each day I would check SPC and models to see what the forecast was for Valparaiso. During severe weather, for example the tornado outbreak of November 17, 2013, I was constantly checking the #inwx and #ilwx hashtag for eyewitness tornado confirmation, use RadarScope to look at various radars like Storm Relative Velocity, Base Velocity and SuperRes Reflectivity, – more... looked at SPC Meso analysis for mesoscale influences and I'd take screenshots and push to the 700+ followers.

On non-severe weather days, I'd tweet the expected high and weather conditions. I'd retweet or tweet climatological data or interesting weather information to inform the followers. – less

Laboratory Assistant (Current Employee), Valparaiso, INJune 17, 2014
Day to day tasks changed with the needs of university projects and needs. I learned to manufacture parts in a machine shop, manage large groups of non-engineer visitors. My co-workers were light hearted and friendly and management was always willing to work through problems to help find solutions.

Dining Services Staff (Current Employee), Valparaiso, INMay 20, 2014
Pros: free meals, easy work
Cons: benefits, back-stabbing
As you approach to clock into the job, everybody is greeting you, saying hello and just makes you feel so joyful. All the different cultures are what make the job more interesting and enjoyable. The management does there part, but I wouldn't say that they are very organized. The co-workers are all great to get along with, but I ould say that there are – more... negatives with favoritism and taking amongst each other about others. – less

An innovative educational experience
Special Events Coordinator (Former Employee), Valparaiso, INMarch 19, 2014
Pros: student-athlete experience, above average education
Cons: expensive, campus officials aren't very student friendly
No different than the average student-athlete collegiate experience. Much of my time involved my studies or something related to my sport. Other than that, I just lived the typical college student lifestyle. As Special Events Coordinator, I helped the Special Events Supervisor with various events being held on campus. Various Events included WWE, sporting – more... events, or community events, such as the annual Popcorn Festival. – less

Line server/ TV Studio Assistant (Former Employee), Valparaiso, INJanuary 11, 2014
For the Line Server: Went into work, and would find out what side I was working on. After that it was just try to get the students through the cafeteria as quick as possible.
The most enjoyable part was my co-workers. We would talk as we would get things prepped, and joke around during the slow times.

For the Studio Assistant: I would punch in, and – more... see what equipment was checked out, make any phone calls if needed, and help students either with their projects or to get into the required rooms around the communication department so they could do their projects.
I liked working with fellow students and helping them as the needed it. – less

Great Place
Resident Assistant (Former Employee), Valparaiso, INJune 23, 2013
Pros: good people, flexible hours, single room, room for creativity.
Cons: residents breaking rules, rudeness from residents, etc.
This had to be my favorite job. My coworkers were amazing. We all got along and were there for each other no matter what. We had regular meetings to discuss things and they were always fun times. I learned how being a Resident Assistant worked and got acquainted with the residents in the building. I learned how to check residents in and out of their – more... rooms, organize programs and bulletin boards, and genuinely enjoyed this job. The management was helpful and lots of fun. They were easy to talk to and all around great people. The hardest part was having to stay up late sometimes and having to deal with residents that were overbearing. The most enjoyable part was conversing with my coworkers and the fellow residents and just creating good memories together. – less

I worked as a student aid
Student Aid Representative (Former Employee), Valparaiso, INMay 1, 2013
Pros: i earned money and experience
Cons: co-workers and superiors were colorstruck
I worked for VU two hours a day, four days a week. There were a few things that I disliked about working as a student aid:

The other student aids I worked with were very passive aggressive towards me because I was the only African American working there at the time, the secretary that showed me how to enter data into Excel was belittling and condescending. – more... She would say things like, "good girl," suggesting that I needed affirmation to know that I completed a step correctly.

Other than that the people were friendly, the atmosphere was casual and I earned honest pay. – less
