University in a crisis due to top management at the time
Work Study Analyst (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – March 6, 2018
Extremely rewarding experience. Even though it was hard work, I enjoyed the challenges (which were always met) and was proud to be a part of the University's Work-Study student payroll system, which was developed during my tenure there.
A typical day at work - very fast paced.
What I learned - enhanced my presentation skills as I had to provide orientation for over 400 work-study students, faculty, and potential employers, on/off campus, per academic year.
The workplace culture - collaborative
The hardest part of the job was to get the payroll generated for all work-study students when they wouldn't get their information submitted on-time; it would be difficult, but necessary to meet the University's payroll cut-off time; however, the challenge was always met with success!
The most enjoyable part of the job was the atmosphere of learning and achievement that permeated throughout the campus.
Learning atmosphere - very positive
Shortfalls due to upper managment
