Fun and rewarding
A great experience working with the students remotely as part of the Tall building studio. Mostly a remote experience teaching sustainability core courses and attending reviews to monitor students design progression.

Productive and Laid back
Easy, laid back, and productive days behind a desk completing tasks and essentially being readily available in case a student and/or faculty member required assistance.
Pros

Awesome, fun job
I love my job, we have a great work environment and have a lot of fun. The pay is good and the hours are flexible. Easy to get as many or few hours as you need and they work well with your schedule. Worst part is the weather because you are outside sometimes, but you don't have to work those events.

Very flexible
My manager is very flexible with my classes and personal schedule. I also can work at my own pace and often work independently. I'm am always shown new things and can ask questions anytime. If something comes up I can also talk to my boss about making my hours up on a different day.
Everyone is happy and we joke around here or there but in the end we all get our work done.

My bosses are very supportive of our interests and sincerely care about us.

I was a summer worker, and loved my experience but it was a lot of work!!
I loved my experience working as an orientation leader, but they were long days and low pay! I knew what I had signed up for, but I think NC State needs to compensate their orientation leaders more for what they expect from them.

Lab Experience
As an undergraduate researcher, I was given guidance from my manager from time to time but most of the work was independent. There were plenty of other people in the lab that were helpful along the way.

I was a student for a project
It was for my senior design class where I was given a project by a sponsor. I had to complete the project for class credit, but it was a very rewarding experience

Parking
Parking is far from buildings and employees pay $32/month for parking.

NC State is a great place to work. I have been a temporary employee for 4 years and appreciate seeing how many departments differ and are the same to make the University feel as one large community

Managers make the difference
A good experience with your manager will make or break your rating of your office. There are plenty of people in manager roles or supervising people where they should not be or need additional training.

Good staff
Most of the higher up staff at Talley were nice and understanding when there were issues and would often step in to assist when needed. The work is heavy, but often gets done fairly quickly and efficiently.
