Clerk Typist 3 (Current Employee) – West Chester, PA – June 15, 2015
The managers/chairs of academic departments are under-involved or largely unavailable and this puts staff in the position to take on more of the role of problem solver and resource manager. The system is reactive, rather than proactive, and the union and tenure environment do not encourage promotion by merit. Those faculty and staff who are ineffective often take on less of the load, while those who are ambitious and hard-working get saddled with much more than is realistic. There are numerous problems of round-the-clock student enrollment management by staff and faculty and errors within the admissions and advising system that keep staff and faculty preoccupied throughout the day and into the evenings and weekends.

Worked with Department Chairs, faculty and students. Chairs, faculty and co-workers are very helpful, allow you to grow in position, take on responsibility. Learned PeopleSoft and SAP programs. Constant phone, in person contact w/students, faculty, other departments. Very kind, encouraging management and faculty. One of the best places I've worked, although only for a short time (less than 1 year). I was also working on BA part-time. Position was temporary fill-in for secretaries on leaves of absence. Hardest part of job was leaving! Busy times at beginning and end of semesters were stressful. Most enjoyable part of job was interacting with Chair, faculty and students to make their work easier.
