I was truly able to grow as an individual not only that I was able to build a very strong network. One of my joys working in this position was that I was able to make a difference in the youth lives who came to our programming. Having them come back and speak on the positive impact that he programs and I had on their life was rewarding.

UW Milwaukee had many opportunities for advancement and self improvement by providing college tuition reimbursement. There also internal educational options such as training to use new forms, new software, etc.

Each division was huge yet we felt like a united campus.


Fun activities were planned for students and the staff.


Excellence in our work was rewarded.

This was your typical college job. As a student I was able to work around my school schedule, classes came first and the management understood as a student I may need time to study and finish projects.

The environment is beautiful and my coworkers along with my managers are very nice to me, but I really don't get paid enough for what I do. I was supposed to have gotten a 30 cent raise along with my raise for being promoted. It's been going on two months and I still have yet to get them and I'm doing more work with more responsibilities still at the rate of $9.20. This is ridiculous.

Productive and Busy

Work was always busy and exciting. Problem solving I believe was key in this position as a director's assistant.


I really had to think on my feet and problem solve on and off location.


I learned many different great skills, abilities, and developed tools to use in many different applications.
