Student employment not meant to be long term.
Proctor (Current Employee), Bowling Green, KYJune 26, 2015
Western is not a bad place to work, it's just not meant to be long term. A typical day is watching people take tests. If a supervisor was out then I would be in the office answering phones and scheduling people to take tests.

Network Specialist (Former Employee), Bowling Green, KYMay 18, 2015
Restructured numerous times with sometimes lack of leadership or direction. Some employees were allowed to do whatever they wanted with little to no consequences. Not enough room for advancement.

Transcript Processor (Former Employee), Bowling Green, KYMarch 6, 2015
Pros: work life balance
Cons: compensation
Your day starts out by reconciling previous day transactions. Once complete, you then begin to process transcript requests from students in person, over the phone and via the internet. Keys to success are being able to multitask.

Budget management, database management, supervisory roll.

Hardest part of the job-low pay scale.

The opportunity to grow.

I was an undergraduate researcher
Undergraduate Researcher (Former Employee), Bowling Green, KYJanuary 11, 2015
Not really much to say, I would do research when I wasn't doing homework, studying or in class. The professors and other students were always up to having some fun in order to have a break from the daily grind.

Graduate Resident Intern/Student Teacher (Former Employee), Bowling Green, KYJuly 16, 2014
Pros: great benefits, good balance, very good support
Cons: tight budget for a family
The GSKy Teach program at Western Kentucky University is an excellent way to get involved in teaching for the recent science or math graduate. You receive a six week summer training followed by a year of student teaching paired up with a mentor teacher. Four days a week you spend teaching and Fridays you have class. Because you aren't the teacher of record you have a small amount of freedom to have your life and enjoy and explore Louisville. But because you are still doing a lot of the teaching, prepare to spend a lot of time grading, planning, writing reflective pieces, and calling parents. But you are guaranteed three years working afterward.
