Building Maintainer (Current Employee), Westfield, MAAugust 22, 2013
Pros: unsupervised working enviroment, you are trusted to do your job correctly.
Cons: summer work schedule, as a maintainer you have to work harder to correct building conditions, as a i.s.o.the summer months are scheduled off, no work.
As a building maintainer, I really enjoy working for this company, it provided, a great opportunity for advancement, and helped me to learn to develop a strong work ethic. It is fast pace environment, which make your work day faster, the best part of working there is the people and students you encounter during your working hours. Management works hard – more... to provide the proper work conditions, and that make you job much more reassuring, to know that are there for you, when needed. As a I.S.O. Working with campus police department, provide a truly professional environment. The Officers give you all of the training and support, you will need to perform your job, to the best of you ability. – less

Office Assistant (Current Employee), Westfield, MAApril 10, 2013
I got to work different events and meet lots of people which has really helped me decide a direction. Working in a university setting is very different from working anywhere else because you have way more opportunities in different fields in one place. You can do PR, assisting, teaching, etc. It was amazing.

Cozy Office Work
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Westfield, MAAugust 28, 2012
I would start the day off filing, answering e-mails, and scheduling appointments for my director. I learned how to work spreadsheets on Microsoft Excel. In doing so, I was able to register students for classes, register rooms for classes, and providing resources for the classes. My director was very laid-back and calm which made my job less stressful. – more... I was always doing two things at once but never felt overwhelmed. My knowledge for administrative work greatly improved with this job and I believe that I have the ability to further my knowledge and feel comfortable in doing so. The hardest part for me, was making phonecalls. I would have to call fifteen people back to back, but it was also my favorite part because I was able to have conversations with the students, or professors, and my confidence in phone-calling greatly improved. – less
