Productive and at times stressful environment
Head Women's Basketball Coach (Former Employee) –  Dover, DEMarch 1, 2018
Typical work day was watching film, planning for practices or games along with handling administrative duties. I managed all aspects of the program including, staff, players, academics as well as the budget.
What I learned most was how this generation has changed and how to relate to them to help them be more successful.
The hardest part of the job was dealing with a limited budget and changing the culture to having a winning spirit.
The most enjoyable part of the job was going everyday and watching the team grow and mature as student-athletes.
Pros
The enviroment and a sense of family.
Cons
To much turnover in administration.

Defensive Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Dover, DEDecember 21, 2017
DSU has a lot of potential. But it continues to make the same mistakes in management. It hires the wrong type of people for key leadership roles. DSU needs to hire the best people with a vision for the future.

Resident Assistant (RA) (Former Employee) –  Dover, DENovember 30, 2017
This job was meant if you were actually in school and taking classes. You can not just get a job like this and apply if you are not a student. It was meant to be that way.
