Assistant Professor (Current Employee), Institute, WVAugust 21, 2013
Pros: great hours, intrinsic rewards
Cons: low pay, little room for advancement
A typical day for me would include teaching business classes. I focus on all aspects of business, including finance, forecasting and statistics. I also spend a lot of time advising students on their future.

I learn different things daily. Cultural differences amongst students and coworkers are things I enjoy learning. I have learned how to work with – more... so many different people at WVSU.

The hardest part of my job would have to be meeting the needs of so many different students in such a short amount of time. I make certain to try and reach everyone I come in contact with.

The most enjoyable aspect of my job is simple. I get to be a part of people's growth as professionals. Many students keep in contact with me upon graduation. They tell me of the strides they make. They thank me for things that I may not have even realized I had done for them. It is quite rewarding. – less

Relaxing workplace with people-meeting opportunities
Computer Lab Assistant (Former Employee), Institute, WVJuly 31, 2013
Pros: ample time to finish school work
Cons: odd shifts, outdated equipment
Working for the English department's computer lab was, while not difficult, occasionally stressful. For the most part, though, it was quite relaxing. The position itself is only open to students, and it was nice to find out that it allows time to work on upcoming projects. Since peoples are constantly entering and leaving, it also offers much in the – more... way of conversation for the people persons.

However, most of the equipment in use is horrendously out of date by technology standards. This is no real fault of the department, though, and is mostly due to lack of funding from the university itself. – less

Typical day at work
Admin and Prog. Coordinator and Dir. Budget Office (Current Employee), Institute, WVJanuary 30, 2013
Pros: hire student workers, evaluate programs to maximize outputs, and work with a good support staff and co-workers
Cons: minimum funding for student employment
A typical day at work comprises of processing purchase orders, posting purchase orders to the budget, maintaining the budget, meeting with various administrators and faculty members concerning proposed purchases, and meeting with students about student employment or life skills. I also check a software program called LiveText to monitor roughly 30 personnel – more... activity, time and effort, and monthly accomplishments. – less

fast pace and fun working environment
Public Relations (Current Employee), Institute, WVJanuary 22, 2013
the typical work day at Tidewater is a good, fast paced experience. It is always a team effort and working together to complete the day successfully with the high demand of customer service. The management staff even dive in to assist when neccesary to keep the ball rolling. The hardest part of an average work day is gaining more and more energy throughout – more... the day because the demand to move faster only builds as the day is ending. the most enjoyable part of my day at Tidewater is the interaction with customers and my staff/co-workers. When I am in the zone and im helping managers complete task and host and the servers and organizing my bussing staffers to work with me more to get the job done right, that is a great feeling. Knowing the my managers are seeing how i can take a rather simple position and diversify into so much thats what make things enjoyable for me. – less
