The great thing about working on-campus is the ability to still get coursework complete. Even on less busy days, there is always something to do, makes the few hours go by really fast. I enjoy working at the tutoring center.
I arrived to work everyday, showed my ID so the police department would be able to release the company car to me. After doing so, I would check the vehicle (gas, breaks, outer appearance) to ensure the safety of driving before picking up passengers. I would drive to designated locations to pick up and drop off passengers and escort them to various work sites. Once I completed my duties for the day, I returned the vehicle and keys to the police department and log my hours in. I did not see the manager to often unless I needed to but she was somewhat friendly. That is definitely not a career job but essentially something to do to earn extra money while you're in school.
I'm a Graduate Assistant, so I only work during the semesters that I am in school. It's a two year program and I am nearly done my first year. Good people to work for, understanding, helpful. Can be stressful during certain seasons.
Receptionist (Current Employee) – Frostburg, MD – April 17, 2018
This job was through work study so it was much benefits. Work study is when a student who attend the college is able to work on campus and earn pay. While working here i've improved my customer service skill and also mat a lot of great people. The work hours also work great with my class schedule.
Working at FSU as an assistant computer technician was fairly easy work, so not stressful at all. I was a full-time student as well, so my manager worked around my schedule. I was responsible for data entry for different hardware around campus, updating system software at different buildings, as well as logging hardware information for devices around campus. The job was a breeze and did not utilize my potential, but gave me a great opportunity to gain experience in the technology field.
Come in office to work office hours, learned how to plan and cater events through the school including reservations and meetings with people. Worked many diverse events and many collaborations with other campus organizations. Have meetings every Monday to discuss process of our events through out the semester.
Faculty (Former Employee) – Frostburg, MD – December 13, 2017
No one helps each other and some individuals are always treated as outsiders. I have seen fellow co-workers in tears because of others. Turnover is unbelievable. International faculty come and leave in one year.
PROGRAMMING COUNCIL MEMBER (Former Employee) – Frostburg, MD – December 9, 2017
Everything sucked about this job. The hours were long and stressful and as a full-time student, I had trouble keeping both on campus work and school work balanced. We would work throughout the day and well into the next day sometimes. I don't recommend this job at all.
Working as a Graduate Assistant at FSU in the Computer Science department is great. The benefit of paying for part of the tuition is reason enough to pursue a position as a Graduate Assistant, but I also really enjoy working with students and helping them debug their projects.
I held an intern position and I absolutely loved it! I was able to gain experience in my field as well as earn a grade while doing so. The professor was extremely welcoming and allowed me to engage with the students to ensure that I was getting the most out of my internship
The best place to work on campus, access to many resources like 3D printers, iPads, Laptops , robots. Encourage to work on innovative projects, I personally learned to develop projects on Raspberry Pi and 3D printer. Fun activities like lunch parties ant that evening pizza. One of my favorite jobs.
This was an amazing marketing internship. I was to explore numerous fascists of marketing. For instance, my supervisor allowed me to assist her with the marketing research for the Frostburg State University meal plans.
