Building Manager at UH HILO at Student Life Center
Building manager (Former Employee) – Hilo, HI – January 30, 2019
A typical day at work, would consist of looking at the Student's or Faculty/Staff ID (front and back) to see if it's validated. Student's ID are different from the Faculty/Staff ID, but both IDs need to be validated.
For the Student's ID- located behind their Student ID should present the semester & year, along with their home campus both on the back of their Student ID.
Being a Building Manager, you need to know and understand the rules of the Student Life Center (SLC), along with knowing how to talk to other students if they are in the wrong. It would be best to take deep breaths, and to recollect the thoughts before opening your mouth. Another thing, being a Building Manager, you need to know when to stand your ground (with students, student-athletes, or faculty/staff members) by being firm with the decisions you make as the building manager (with the help and support from front desk) toward the individual's actions of not bringing their Student or Faculty/Staff ID (ID is the only way to get into the SLC) into the SLC.
Managing of the SLC is great and suitable for all students and Faculty/Staff.
The workplace of the SLC is culturally diverse and we treat everyone with respect.
The hardest part of this job, is waiting till the last hour of work to be done.
The enjoyable part of this job, you get to meet new people while working at the SLC, and you also make friends with the other students who do come to the gym.
