Job seekers rely on your experience.
Every work experience is unique. Let people know your thoughts on previous employers.
Most positions within the university are clerical by nature, but there are a few customer service jobs and food service jobs. The amount of stress varies greatly but with the multiple departments there is usually a position that would fit both your tastes and schedule.
Working for any university is usually easy if you're at the entry-level of employment. They work well with your schedule and hold little to no expectations when it comes to your availability. If you want a lot of hours, I wouldn't look here unless you're in custodial. Also, the pay isn't the best unless you're doing a physical or a generally not coveted job.
Being a tutor is very flexible as you are a student yourself so you can schedule your availability around your schedule. Tutoring is rewarding however its a very limited amount of time to work so the pay is not the reason you do it. You do the job because you enjoy the subject, enjoy helping others succeed, maybe teaching is what you want to do. Its more of a moral thing as its good to help others. you don't tutor to make money that is for sure. Your clients appreciate you (if you're good) and that adds value to the monetary payment. It also can help add substance and character to your resume. Your are happy to help people, some jobs are worth it because of the moral sense of accomplishment compared to the monetary earning.
I loved the Job, it was a good experience and it enhanced my abilities in different products and was room to help my creative an artistic ability grow. Time and flexibility was nice for a part time student taking maximum required course load.
As a chemistry graduate student you have a myraid of different responsibilities including teaching, classes, research, mentoring, and other optional ones such as volunteering or departmental work. The overall workload tends to vary based upon your research advisor and their own expectations but generally it will be challenging. However, graduate school is one of the best opportunities to learn and fine tune one's life skills in an engaging and thought provoking environment.
Flexible work schedule, progressive department policies, welcoming community
Long hours (usually), periods of intense stress, requires extensive time managment
I was originally hired to help with replacing network hardware around the dorms, we managed to accelerate the project when one of the workers from another department had to leave a month early. had alot of fun along the way
15 years without salary increase or promotion. No career ladder. New employees being hired at higher rate of psu then retirees. Not a community feel
Unique culture, college students enjoyable
After 30 years, $8 more per hour than 1989.
Great place for a student to gain management and work experience. Work as a student worker for a semester or two, then apply to a leadership position to develop management skills and practice.
