Laborer (Former Employee) – State College, PA – April 11, 2018
It was a great learning experience. I learned proper job planning and learned to take steps in order to get the job done in a fast and safe manner. Everyone there was great to work with as they made the day fun.
Being an RA was fun but definitely a lot of work and stress
RESIDENT ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – University Park, PA – April 9, 2018
Overall I loved it. There are often a lot of issues in learning to balance your life as a student, with life as a resident assistant, and with life as an individual because where you live IS your place of work. This made finding a balance hard for some individuals but the experience is worth it and you can make life long friends.
Productive place to work with great collaboration across labs
Post-doctoral Fellow (Current Employee) – State College, PA – April 9, 2018
Enjoyed working here- received great training in techniques that were new to me. One nice feature is that labs that may be working on completely different research projects are still willing to discuss your project, suggest ideas and give training in techniques that they are experts in.
Seminars constantly provide new insights
Working more than 40 hours per week is pretty much expected.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – University Park, PA – April 3, 2018
The most enjoyable part of my job is the people I have gotten to know and watching the students become productive in the work force. The hardest part of the job was when they would graduate and move on.
Graduate Research Assistant (Current Employee) – University Park, PA – March 31, 2018
Since I am a PhD student of an intercollege program, our faculty consists of professors with a broad spectrum of research areas and expertise. During my graduate studies, I got to learn many types of research, which not only broadened my knowledge but also created more opportunities for my career options.
My position was first instructor and then Assistant professor.
Assistant professor of Mathematics (Former Employee) – 4000 University Drive McKeesport, PA 15132 – March 26, 2018
My position as an assistant professorship was not tenor track and according to their budgetary consideration, they did not continue my position after 4 years. I was teaching 2-3 courses per semester and advising students as well.
Register Clerk/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Monaca, PA – March 19, 2018
A typical day at work is nice, and there's always something to look forward too. I have good days and bad days but I'm always busy. My coworkers are lovely, outgoing people, and I like working with them a lot. I typically don't have anything to complain about when I am at work because everything goes smoothly.
Outstanding experience and great people to work with
INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY INTERN (Former Employee) – DuBois, PA – March 19, 2018
I loved the experience I had at the Penn State campus, having met several great people in the process. For this internship, I primarily worked alone attempting to create a new system for all students to use daily. Once a week I would meet with my advisor to give updates and ensure that I was headed in the correct direction. Overall I had the opportunity to create the system that I had wanted, and it has been working out great ever since.
Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – State college, PA – March 9, 2018
My time at Penn State as a student and assistant teacher was truly amazing. First off it was a complete dream to be able to get paid to act and teach at a top tier University. A typical day consisted of class in the morning, five days a week, 11to 12 hours a day. During the afternoon or early mornings, depending on the semester and how classes were scheduled, I would teach undergraduate students the basics of Theatre. This meant I had to create a full semester syllabus, reading assignments and various group orientated activities for my students. The job really called for a flexible personality seeing as how theatre is such an abstract subject now days, I had to adapt to each student. Sprinkled on top of all this I had to perform in many Theatre productions, as was the requirements of the job. It was a truly rigorous program but very fulfilling.
As far the management team, they were high class well renowned people from around the world. For instance, one of my professors was from London England.
The workplace was vibrant and a bit loud at times considering all the students and just theatre folk in general. There was a lot of passion and dedication for the craft and work we were doing.
The most enjoyable part has to be receiving my Master's Degree for Theatre and Performance.
Working with others in a positive and passionate environment
