Phone Operator (Current Employee) – Ogden, UT – November 6, 2018
Environment was fun, but hard because not a lot of people answer. People are nice there and are always down to work with your schedule. Breaks were short usually ten minutes but you only work for about three hours.
Enjoyed Autonomy for the Most Part Until Second Year
Secretary, Teaching and Learning Forum (Former Employee) – Ogden, UT – October 19, 2018
Performed basic secretarial duties for department, making flyers, preparing activities for faculty, maintaining department website. Did event planning. Learned how to maintain website done in FrontPage. Management was great first year, terrible the second year. Workplace culture was quiet and uninterrupted. Hardest part of the job was being blamed for things that I wasn't responsible for and demeaning personal comments from immediate supervisor. Also, autonomy went away. Was micromanaged. Most enjoyable part of the job were the departmental events.
Being able to go to scheduled departmental events.
Loss of autonomy and stress from feeling like I was being set up. Walking on egg shells.
Not great management at all. great if you need a part time job while going to school.
Custodian (Former Employee) – Ogden, UT – September 13, 2018
The management in the custodial dept. is completely disorganized and very poor. They leave all of the work and training to one boss and other employees are forced to train new hires almost constantly. The hours are short, you get low pay, but you’re out of work by 9am. Only take the job if you’re good at doing repetitive tasks and doing this for months at a time with no change, raise, or benefits at all.
A great place for professional development if you can put up with the office politics
Learning Specialist (Former Employee) – Ogden, UT – August 24, 2018
The typical day consists of meetings, emails, and calls to colleagues and students, and working on special projects. I had two directors, the first was a micro-manager and made the workday stressful. The second was very hands-off and not dependable. I didn't feel that we had the direction and leadership that the team needed, nor did I feel that any concerns I had were taken seriously. The workplace culture is normally very helpful and friendly, but like all workplaces, there are politics. Most there are not very accepting of the Mormon culture, and many times the culture was ridiculed and disparaged. The politics are probably the hardest part of the job. The most enjoyable parts of the job were being a part of helping students achieve their dreams, using the well-developed and innovative employee wellness program, and being part of division committees in my areas of interest.
professional development opportunities, fantastic employee wellness program, discount on university classes
Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – Ogden, UT – August 6, 2018
I worked as a teaching assistant part time. It was only about 3-4 hours a week, but all of my responsibilities were clearly stated. My bosses were helpful and fair. The pay was reasonable for the amount of work I did.
Career Services Student Intern (Current Employee) – Ogden, UT – July 13, 2018
WSU Career Services is the best work and team environment I've worked for so far! Everyone is so appreciative and helpful. Management is awesome! Hours are flexible. Pay isn't the greatest, but it's so worth it!
Certified Apple Technician (Former Employee) – Ogden, UT – July 12, 2018
I learned a lot from working at Weber State dealing with people, computers, and software. They payed for me to become an certified apple technician so I could properly fix peoples computers. They worked with my school schedule so i could get classes done.
Adjunct Dance Instructor (Former Employee) – Ogden, UT – July 9, 2018
When you are a freelance performer, it is rare to get an opportunity to have such a welcoming and creative environment to return to. Teaching the musical theatre majors there was a wonderful experience.
Testing Center Lead Proctor (Current Employee) – Ogden, UT – May 29, 2018
Working in the testing center is pretty laid back. You get to do your homework if it's not busy and the workload is easy to manage. You just have to be strick with the rules and be able to multi-task well.
Peer Mentor (Former Employee) – Ogden, UT – May 18, 2018
I worked with other students, and really enjoyed my time there. It was a Student Work-study job, therefore part time, and flexible with my class schedule. I would recommend working there to any student. I am also currently applying to work there full time in a regular job, now that I have graduated.
Works well with class schedules, good academic environment
Job only lasts for the semester, or until work study grant funds are exhausted.
