Fun Life
Member of Aerospace Senior Design (Former Employee), WichitaAugust 6, 2015
Working is a part of life, it comprises learning, emotion, and experience. Most of the time I will having a productive working day as I am learning new experience. Learning happens in every second, I learned – more... how to work in group and individual because when you are working in group there are a lot of different ideas but we have to come in consensus, that is how I solve problems.

I always have a backup or thinking ahead in management as nothing is perfect in this world. That is one of the ways to reduce panic situation and prevent wasting too much time because time is gold. Money, Quality, and Time are very important to me and company.

There is always a happy time especially when you solve a trouble, as you can see people around you can finally calm down and relax. – less

multiple responsibilities on the job with access to a variety of events
ADMINISTRATIVE SPECIALIST (Current Employee), Wichita, KSOctober 31, 2014
Pros: weekends & holidays off, available opportunities
Cons: lack of adequate parking, poor communication
As with most any workplace, there are a variety of personalities and work ethics amongst my co-workers, but we do what we need to get the work done in a professional & timely manner. This also applies – more... to the management.
A typical day for me starts at least a half hour before the actual clock-in time. I use this period to go over emails, check voice mail, get my computer, printers, and other assorted equipment up and running, and take care of anything else so that I may be at my desk to begin working by the appointed hour. In my position, I know what needs to be taken care of, how to accomplish the tasks, and which items are of most importance, thus I am capable of working independently. From the start of the day I perform a variety of responsibilities, some of which involve assisting other areas with their work loads.
I feel the hardest part of my job can be the "language" barrier when it comes to technical terms. As for the most enjoyable part of my job, I truly enjoy all the events and activities available to university employees and the community. The atmosphere on campus after a win at the big game, or hearing the beautiful strains of a composition from an accomplished musician can be such an uplifting experience.
After 19 years, I have learned many life lessons as well as gaining professional knowledge. I have acquired an understanding of computers and assorted office equipment, while conquering my fear of the unknown. I have made good friends, and said goodbye to a few of them. I have learned that changes are inevitable, and if you fight them, it only makes things harder. But, if you embrace the challenge of learning different things, a new and exciting world can be opened up to you. – less
