Chem. Drill Instructor (Former Employee), New Orleans, LA – September 23, 2013
It was great to be able to teach my peers because it helped reiterate important things that I leaned during the semester. Before each tutoring session I reviewed the course material even if I had taken the class in previous years. The hardest part of the job was learning different ways to teach the material because many students had different ways of – more... learning and understanding. – less

Lab Prep Assistant (Former Employee), New Orleans, LA – June 24, 2013
Pros: i learned things that could help me in school and everyday life
Cons: some of the chemicals were dangerous and sometimes i had to work on exam days
I went to class, ate dinner, and went to the lab for work. Sometimes students were in lab as I worked and sometimes they were not. Every now and then, my supervisor checked on me to make sure I was doing things correctly. The hardest thing about the job was having to make out new chemicals and doing those calculations. However, the most enjoyable part – more... of the job was making TLC Columns and pipettes. I learn about what certain chemicals were such as lacrimers, corrosive, mutagens, etc. – less
Staff Instructor (Former Employee), New Orleans, LA – June 22, 2013
During a day at work, I was always excited for the new challenges of the day. Even though I knew the day was going to be long and arduous, I was constantly thankful for my employment. Knowing that I would offer and teach new lessons and have various experiences made me overwhelmingly happy to have this position.
For a staff full of qualified and opinionated – more... workers, I learned that being fearless was a trait that I needed to possess in order to function in high paced workplaces. I respected my co-workers and loved that they challenged me to be better as a tutor and teacher.
Management was easy for me to follow. For the times that I was in a managing position, my co-workers and student tutors respected me. I always tried to be diplomatic and fair.
Still, the hardest part of the job was ensuring that I was doing the best to support the students. For me, the most enjoyable part of the job was knowing that I was giving something to those who wanted to learn. It was my passion. It was my everything. Still is. – less

Family-oriented environment made going into work seem easy and stress-free. With goals established by our supervisor each person was free to complete the established task with reports being submitted throughout the progress of the task. I learned everything to shape my corporate sense at this job. I learned how to be a leader, I learned how to adapt – more... in the event of unforeseen circumstances. I learned how to rebuild after a catastrophe. The team approach was taken to ensure an open-door approach on every project where respect of each individual was given careful consideration before any criticism was offered. The hardest part of the job was everything; meeting deadlines, operating with limited resources, accomplishing goals that would serve various consumers, and the list goes on! The most enjoyable part of the job was the sense of accomplishment I gained once every project was completed and seeing the usefulness of the work which was done. – less
