Theater Production Assistant (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – June 18, 2018
This was a part time, max 10hrs/ week job. My pay was increased each year, but was through the Federal Work Study, so it was not a job that I could live off, just something to help me pay for extra things while I was in school.
Student Worker/Office Assistant (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – February 3, 2018
I was part of the Student Worker program at Trinity University while I attended as a Full-time student there. The work was simple enough that I had plenty of time to study while on duty, but not so empty as to be boring every day.
Self-driven Work Place with Collaborative Opportunities
Program Director (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – December 6, 2017
As an undergraduate, I attended Trinity for four years prior to becoming a staff member. From the many benefits of attending the university, came the opportunity to write and implement federal grants. The first grant project I worked on was in collaboration with the Entrepreneurship Department to implement the first university-supported farmers market in San Antonio. The following year, I was able to write and implement a different grant project under the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation that supported community gardens and garden-based learning at local public schools in low-income and low-access communities. This project was led in partnership with the Biology Department.
Peer Tutor (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – October 18, 2017
Although the "job" was considered a class, wherein peer tutors must attend class and are given course credit, the work was like having an immersive tutoring job. Tutors do not have to complete assignments but are expected to understand the course content well enough to assist students in their assignments and studying. Getting to help students improve is incredibly rewarding and I would recommend it for anyone who is interested in teaching.
Student-Athlete (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – October 10, 2017
Was a work study job to help aid in paying for tuition. Learned how to organize a group of people to complete a common objective. Work hours were limited throughout the week because the nature of my job was directly related to sport events. Enjoyed watching sports and working with friends.
Lifeguard (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – September 6, 2017
It was great to be a lifeguard there because the hours were flexible with my school hours and we were able to choose when to work and everyone was really kind. It was great because I was a swimmer for Trinity, so whenever I had some extra time, I would lifeguard.
Intramural Sports Program Advisor (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – July 31, 2017
I worked for the University throughout my college career. The job was extremely flexible. It gave me great opportunities to really grow as a person with the responsibilities that were given to me in my position.
Work environment allowed us to both excel at our job and have fun doing it.
Facilities Supervisor (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – December 30, 2016
A typical day was to go in the office and check on the nightly game schedule, email team captains and referees to remind them that they work that night. Then at night, I would go to the games and supervise to insure that everything ran smoothly. I learned how to be an effective communicator and leader by showing me team members how to correctly perform their jobs and ensure a quality experience for the intramural participants. Management did a good job ensuring that we had everything we needed to be successful at our duties. My co-workers were great. The hardest part of the job was supervising basketball games, in which participants would regularly get riled up and it was my duty to step in and calm everyone down so that we could conduct the games in a safe and fun environment. In some cases I had to eject certain individuals from games because of their lack of sportsmanship. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to be a part of the fun work environment that we had, especially during flag football, basketball, and sand volleyball seasons, which were the funnest in my opinion.
