The UB Stamford Center was a fulfilling place to work.
Director of the Stamford Campus (Former Employee) – Stamford, CT – July 11, 2018
In my career at the University of Bridgeport I found the work challenging and satisfying. In my tenure there I worked with students, faculty, coworkers and upper management. As the director of the site, I managed the facility, the budget and the staff. Working closely with Admissions, we increased the enrollment utilizing low cost initiatives in order to remain within our budgets. My staff and I created a wam and supportive environment to facilitate learning.
SANDELLA'S (Former Employee) – CT – April 19, 2018
Goes by favoritism a lot and will often hire before the window of hiring even opens. Very understanding of school work (they have to they are the University after all). Recommended for those that are looking to build job experience,
The hardest part of the job is to teach the student and solving the doubt. This job keeps me in touch with Java programming language. The workplace culture is very good at the University of Bridgeport.
Although it is tough to be a tutor, the rewards are very fulfilling. The employers are very relaxed and the employees are very friendly. Preparing for the classes can be very exhausting and overwhelming; however, if you put a lot of effort you will be noticed. The funnest part of the job is when everything clicks and the students start to understand everything and see the logic behind the equations.
Reinforce lessons presented by teachers by reviewing material with students one-on-one or in small groups, Enforce school and class rules to help teach students proper behavior and Help teachers with recordkeeping, such as tracking attendance and calculating grades. I have learned from my job are: 1) How can I have time management and organize my self to be ready at any time the company needs me. 2) Know what I stand for--and what you don't. It gives you clarity. I stand for persistence, hard work, and never taking shortcuts. 3) Don't rest on my laurels. Instead, always strive for something outside of your comfort zone. 4) Believe in the power of failure. It's the best way to learn. Just remember to learn from your mistakes, and not to repeat the same ones. 5) Trust your inner compass, even when the naysayers do not. 6) Take the risk that takes you somewhere new.
I have learned from the workplace culture how can I deal with different types of people by the right way and how can I become more collaborative. Also, Working with a team and under pressure.
