Great place to work
Web Assistant (Former Employee), Monmouth, ORMarch 13, 2014
Pros: flexible schedule
Cons: not very many hours
A typical day as a web assistant starts off with updating the activities calendar. After that I would ask each of the professional staff if they had anything for me to work on, or I would continue a project that I had already started. The professional staff were great, they were very welcoming and friendly. The hardest part of the job was making sure – more... everything was up to date every single day. The most enjoyable part was when I would finally figure out how to do something complicated on Dreamweaver. Because this was an on-campus job for students, I was able to work my schedule around my classes and work from home when needed. – less

Very accomodating
Student Caller (Former Employee), Monmouth, ORSeptember 12, 2013
Pros: accomodating, good pay
Cons: small room
I worked in the calling center for the Annual Fund program - essentially, I called alumni and asked them to donate money to scholarships. As call center jobs go, this was much better than most. They paid well and were willing to excuse employees from a shift periodically if they had too much homework. The manager was great. The only downside was the – more... room we worked in was kinda small and you could hear everyone else's calls, but that's normal for a call center. – less

Social Clinical Psychology Research Lab Manager (Former Employee), Monmouth, ORAugust 20, 2012
Pros: fantastic opportunities to learn about psychology research, presentation, and publication.
Cons: unpaid. this job was for college credit only.
My responsibilities as the student in charge of the lab involved a lot of scheduling, data collection and input, as well as managing students who reported me.

The two most challenging tasks were scheduling student research participants, as well as managing the individuals participating as lab assistants.

One of my favorite parts of the job was creating – more... the lab handbook; this handbook detailed responsibilities for all levels of assistant participation, expectations, as well as procedures for data collection, scheduling, and other basic office protocols. – less

Facility Maintenance Worker (Former Employee), Monmouth, ORMarch 27, 2012
Pros: beautiful setting, small town environment
Cons: subject to the political climate, of the state of oregon
This campus won national awards for its beauty. The small town setting is easy on the nerves. The 70 buildings range from 1860 vintage to brand new. The challenge before you is to maintain, repair and protect the assets with a reducing budget.
