Friendly and productive environment
Assistant Softball Coach (Current Employee), Whittier, CaJune 19, 2015
Typical Day would consist of checking emails from prospective athletes, helping with compliance, organizing practice plans, providing skills to the players to help improve their abilities to play at a high level, interacting with other coaches from different sport, and attending monthly staff meetings. Also, working with young women as well as young girls during softball camps and helping them grow into well mannered and educated women. The hardest part of the job is being so young and earning respect from the players who were only three years younger than I am. From the beginning, I was able to make sure they knew I was not their friend but their coach who can provide guidance or advice to them about their life after college and softball. The most enjoyable part of the job is impacting these young women in a positive way and helping them grow into respectful women. Although I am a softball coach, I am also a substitute teacher for the local high school district and a student working on her master's degree which should be completed by May of 2016.

The environment is great.
Technical Manager/Media Coordinator (Current Employee), Whittier, CAJanuary 13, 2015
Pros: fun environment. independence.
Cons: poor leadership, high turn around, terrible compensation.
The environment is great. I love my student workers and most of the staff. It is a very friendly environment that is fun to work at. Upper management isn't tip top. They underpay the staff that gets most of the work done and miss spend money left and right. The upper management is over paid while many key players are vastly underpaid, leading to a high turn around. Catering meetings is more important then hiring a well trained staff to support the existing infrastructure.

Student Health Assistant (Former Employee), Whittier, CAOctober 1, 2014
Although it was a fast paced environment, it was definitely a much need experience. The management was excellent, there were no complications because everyone was on task, there were no mix-ups about duties, schedule, or pay. The most difficult portion of this job was the high demand for service.

Secretary of Residential Life (Former Employee), 13406 E. Philadelphia St. Whittier, CA 90601August 22, 2013
Pros: small campus.
Cons: never a down time.
The day started with morning correspondence, delegate assignments for work study students. Best part of any day was accomplishing a project a head of the time allotted. Sharing new information with co-workers and visa versa was always the highlight of my day. Hardest part of the job was limited access to campus facilities because of limited scheduling.
