Easygoing place to work, but exciting in that it challenges you
Learning Center Assistant (Former Employee) – Worcester, MA – January 6, 2018
A typical day at work involved arriving at 7:30 A.M, readying the center for students and tutors and proceeding to assist students to find tutors, proper worksheets, and troubleshooting computer issues. I learned the value of treating each person as unique and worth listening to. My employers there were heartfelt and patient, giving each problem time to be heard and gracing others the benefit of the doubt when their behavior was in question. The hardest part of the job was sitting at a desk for hours at a time. I prefer to be on my feet and doing something with intermittent breaks, so it was a challenge, but the slowed pace allowed me the time to get to know the visitors, teachers, and tutors there. The most enjoyable part of the job was definitely working with the staff there and learning about their dreams and desires, they encouraged me and I hope to do the same for others in future.
Great co-workers, ample time to work on homework, and an evironment where all stages of learning of welcomed.
Some dull hours in between, especially on days there weren't many students and only half hour breaks were permitted.
