Haunted Housing actor (Former Employee), Macomb, ILMay 2, 2015
I enjoyed working in haunted housing. I got to learn what strengths I possess, and how creative I could be. Preparing required a lot of time commitment, and dependency on certain people. I worked overtime the night of Halloween being that everyone had left earlier without being excused. The few of us there that had not left had to take on other roles to have a successful haunted house.

Summary
Computer Lab Assistant (Former Employee), MacombJanuary 24, 2015
Cons: computer lab assistants are not well trained.
Clean the computers. Provide more supplies like papers, staples, and punchers when needed. Help students with printing issues and help with some software like Microsoft Office. There is no much connection to other co-workers because only one lab assistant works at time. The hardest part of the job is when working during the rush hours and printers usually have some issues like jamming and other non specified reasons. I learned get used to work under pressure and get used the worst kinds of customers.

Student Assistant (Current Employee), Macomb, ILSeptember 26, 2014
Pros: relaxed environment, manage your own work, supervisors are amazing, sometimes there are snacks
Cons: limited to 20 hrs a week
It's a laid back work environment but there is always something to do. I loved everyday I came into work, sometimes coming in just for the good conversation. Tim Sheridan and Jessica Mueller are amazing to work for. Very understanding people and and always available if I just needed someone to talk to or bounce ideas off of. I'm not sure I'd get a better job than this one.

Graduate Assistant (Former Employee), Moline, ILJune 10, 2014
Pros: everything
Cons: nothing
I really thoroughly enjoyed my graduate assistantship. I was able to work with people outside of my field of study and help multiple professors with researching topics to help them in the future. I also was able to interact with other graduate assistants which made the job that much more fun!
