Supportive department co-workers
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee), Providence, RIJanuary 5, 2015
Pros: support from department members, job security
Cons: lack of monetary support for my additional tasks, no room for personal growth within the position or department.
One of the strengths of my personal department is that I work with many caring and supportive people. Many are mindful of the many tasks I am responsible for and can be self-sufficient for menial tasks. Whenever I have concerns or issues I can typically work them out with my department's chair.

A typical day at work starts off with making sure the coffee supplies are properly stocked then I check emails, address any issues that may be pending including registration and course offering concerns. I utilize my student assistants to run errands, make copies or assist with any departmental projects. I am responsible for purchasing department supplies, videos, software. Monthly I run the department's budget balancing accounts and tracking purchases. Each semester I am responsible for drafting and updating the department course listings as well as pre-registration for a number of courses. Also in the Spring semester I am responsible for planning three major department events; Senior Reception, Honor Society Induction Ceremony and Edward Cleary Lecture series. Additionally each Spring I administer a questionnaire for rising seniors to choose their senior Capstone class, I am responsible for overseeing the questionnaire and assigning the students to one of their top 3 choice Capstone classes.

Lastly, for the past three years I have provided support such as document filing, copying, travel arrangements, schedules, luncheons and dinners for applicants for faculty tenured positions. And all other support the department needs from me in order to hire a new faculty member.

Very hard work
Office of Education (Former Employee), Providence, RIAugust 13, 2014
At Providence College, I have worked various jobs, including positions in the office of education, food catering, the art department and the transportation division. As an artist, I have devoted years to the development of my skills. Holding a concentration in oil painting and my own solo exhibition has given me the opportunity to learn about the installation, upkeep and dismantling of an art gallery. Working as a gallery sitter I have over watched various exhibitions and was given years of experience in a gallery environment.

Overall good feeling at most times.
Administrative Assistantt (Former Employee), Harkins HallDecember 20, 2011
Pros: good vacation schedules, good lunch facilities on campus, good benefits.
Cons: office equipment not always up-to-date.
Feeling of "family" was always present. Desire to get to work in the morning was strong because of the employers and their great attitudes. Always fair to employees, required proper dress (which I felt was a good thing). I was a young widow at the time that I went to work there and I always felt safe and at home while there.
