It was nice working at the school while taking classes.

Mailroom Supervisor (Former Employee)
Decatur, GA

ProsI worked at the school I was attending so I got to work out a flexible schedule. It was a really easy student job so no pressure.

ConsSometimes I felt like I was being taken advantage of because of how hard I worked. I would often find myself being relied on to do things that did not seem appropriate for a student worker to be doing or have the responsibility.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeeds a better training protocol. I was trained by a receptionist who eventually left and then I had to train someone to take over my job. Unfortunately I was the only one who knew about any of my responsibilities.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
