Intramural Referee (Former Employee) – Monmouth, OR – July 3, 2017
I learned to have patience with employers and customers. Working as a team has been the main focus and correlates the workplace in a positive manner. The management opened my eyes to different aspects in regards to organization in work stations and the entire facility. The hardest part from this job was working with younger employees because of the maturity levels. I have a hard working mind set and compared to the other employees, the maturity wasn't at the same level. The workplace culture was positive and welcoming.

Assistant Secretary (Former Employee) – Monmouth, OR – June 29, 2016
A typical day at work includes scheduling appointments for students to meet with their advisers. Also, I answered miscellaneous phone calls in the office.As a front desk office assistant, I checked out calculators, books, and laptops to students. I learned a lot about scheduling appointments and using the Blumen database to keep student's information organized. My co-workers were very pleasing to work with. The hardest part of the job was when the printer did not work and I ad to tell students to find printing elsewhere meanwhile I fixed the issue. The most enjoyable part of the job was smiling at students and helping them get their supplies and answering any questions they may have.

Tutor (Former Employee) – Monmouth, OR – November 12, 2015
There really is no typical schedule for tutors, the hours vary by request and not very consistent. However they allow you to schedule yourself in your free time between classes and are very understandable about time off to complete school work (as long as you schedule it at least a little ways in advance.)
Hours can vary between 0 and the maximum you sign yourself up for (hard cap at 20)
The pay is kind of low, some other jobs on campus raise the pay by a small amount every term that you work there (.25$), If I was willing to show students answers rather than make them find them for themselves I could have charged 20+ an hour privately.
