The Professors Were Great to Work With
Faculty Assistant (Former Employee), Long Beach, CAMarch 22, 2014
Pros: great work environment. access to professors.
Cons: low pay
Typical Day at Work - Receive homework and lab assignments from the professor. Grade and record homework and lab assignments. Be ready to assist students in the lab area.

Management - The professors were great. One of them gave me some "latitude" to give an "ultimatum" to students of an "Introduction to C Programming" class, because the students were – more... trying to take advantage of me in completing their homework.

Coworkers - I did not have much interaction with the other Faculty Assistants; it was more about working with the professors to ease their burden. The professors were great to work with because of their friendly and professional manner.

The Hardest Part of the Job - Keeping up with the Introduction to C Programming homework assignments. It was more than just looking at answers from the Instructor's book; it was looking to see if the assignment was done correctly, in terms of the plan of the software program, and the execution of writing the code correctly.

To see the students succeed to the next level. – less

Admissions Advisor (Former Employee), North Brunswick, NJMarch 12, 2014
Pros: the people i worked with.
Cons: due to low enrollment i was part of a national reduction in force, it was sad to leave my team and the students i was in the process of working with.
Each day brought something new. Met with new students and guided existing students. Management was always willing to help you to succeed. Hardest part of the job was the incoming of new leads. Had no control over the # of leads coming in. Was randomly assigned new prospects. I learned persistance is a necessity to getting some students to commit to – more... continuing their education. Most enjoyable part of the job was meeting a new student and watching them grow and continue their education. They would come to me often just to let me know of their success. Made me feel like I did my job well. – less

Director of Student Accounts (Former Employee), Chicago, ILFebruary 26, 2014
Pros: working with a great staff, and assisting students in understanding the cost for their education.
Cons: working for a large corporation managed university.
My daily responsibilities include managing 15 office staff, managing the receivables for the universities, attending meetings with students, staff, and management and technology departments.

I have learned that communication is important in management and working with a corporation. My management skills are fair, productive, and efficient in creating – more... an efficient work environment.

The hardest part of my job would be delivering bad news to my staff.

The most enjoyable part would be creating a good work environment for staff and assisting students with continuing their education. – less

Pros: quiet, peaceful, can get a lot of work done either school or work-related
Cons: job only lasts as long as you are a student
A typical day at work is be at the front desk helping students check books out and/or reserve conference rooms.

The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to work – more... on my schoolwork when all of the day's tasks were done and when there are no students in the library – less

Good work environment. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Best part of the job is the comradely and events being held. Typical day at work was reaching out and interviewing potential students about their choice of college and programs of choice and to make sure they were ok with that decision being made.

Productive and busy, never a dull moment.
STUDENT SUCCESS COACH (Former Employee), North Brunswick, NJFebruary 10, 2014
Pros: free education
Cons: micro management
A typical day at work was overall pleasant and productive. Usually, in the beginning of the week (Monday) we start with a department meeting and than start our day. It starts with communicating with different departments and also with students, catching up with emails/phone calls. Contacting each students in our portfolio and letting them know of their – more... progress/weakness.

I have learned critical thinking, analyzing and staying calm as well "listening" to customers/students and find out what the actual problem is as well as many other critical skills such as being patient but still aggressive (when needed) to make sure the job is done on time and accurately.

As far as management, it was mostly centralized and micro managed. Not much freedom.

One of of the best team of co-workers I have ever worked with.

Honestly, I didn't find anything too hard except for the fact that it was micro managed and the middle management was made of people who were there for many many years and resistant to change.

The most enjoyable part of the job was that the job required to communicate (both verbally and written) with not only the customers but also with different departments/management plus it also required to analyze and think critically all the time which was great according to my personality and interest. – less
