I have worked in a field office and on campus, both have their plusses and minuses. The management in the field is not as strong as on campus, but being on campus means more traffic and parking challenges. Choose your battles.
Excellent benefits offering two retirement options (defined contribution or defined benefit), and 401K, 457. Excellent health insurance options with a range of coverage for vision and dental. Life insurance as a payroll deduction for employee and dependents, tuition waivers for the employee.
Hired as a temporary employee, yet was very welcomed by the department in general. My direct supervisor gave a perfect balance of guidance, availability, and autonomy to allow me to complete the tasks given to me. Learned a great deal of specifics relating to my job and to the other positions my tasks support. Given extra materials for my edification allowing me to have a broader view of the processes I was supporting which allowed me to carry out the tasks to a greater efficiency.

Cook/Cashier (Former Employee) – NCSU/main campus/Murphy Center – July 25, 2018
A typical day was very busy getting food ready for the students. I worked as a grill cook for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. i also worked as a prep cook, and as a display cook. I also worked as a dining room attendant, and as a cashier at caser dining. I worked at the Murphy Center 3 days a week, working as a prep cook for the salad bar,and for the fruiit bar. I also worked as a breakfast cook, making omletes for the football team. i worked as a dining room attendant, and as a runner, bringing food from the kitchen, and placing on the hot bar. Nothing was hard about this job.
A typical day involved managing a lot of adults and making sure everyone was on schedule. Long work day from early in the morning to late at night were challenging, but there are other employees and managers there to provide support. Overall, a really collaborative workplace with many hardworking individuals.
Great place to work! The staff and the caring nature the university has for both students and employee is some of the best I have ever seen. The professional opportunities offered are wonderful, but the collaboration makes you wolfpack for life!
