Voice Instructor (Current Employee) – New York, NY – June 18, 2018
The New School has a wonderfully diverse student population. The department is supportive and innovative. I enjoy working here very much because I am encouraged to create courses that stimulate and expand the student's experience and knowledge of the craft of Voice and Communication skills. We often work together on theatre productions where I can support the student's application of my work outside of the classwork.

Great job for communications, management, computer development skills, and nice to work for the education system. At times, internal politics and hostile work scenarios would rise. However, most of the colleagues were nice and work was enjoyable.

Office Administrator (Current Employee) – New York, NY – February 14, 2018
Very laid back friendly environment, great management, offered overtime hours sometimes (optional). Shifts are usually 9 AM - 5 PM. If you decide to do overtime shifts it can sometimes be till 6 pm or 7 pm and Saturdays from 9AM till 3PM or 4PM. The job is mostly Data-entry work, some scanning involved as well. You must be able to sit at your desk all day entering data information. You deal with transcripts, recommendation letters, essays and you also link different documents into the system (Banner and perceptive). The pay was $14.35 an hour. Not so high but data entry is not much of a brain thinker, so I believe it's fair. You get paid bi-weekly.
Office always has a lot of snacks
Temporary job only for busy season. No chance of getting hired
