Head Teching Assistant

April 2018 • Rexburg, ID

What I liked

Working for the professors sets itself apart from any other job. They are humble disciples of Christ who hope to impart keys of success to their students. Working for the school is also an awe inspiring job because the spirit is felt on campus, a sense of belonging and a sense that you are always needed/wanted.

What I wish was different

I'm not a fan of students hiring students. Including myself, students being the decision makers for new hires is a favoritism focused performance. I have seen others get the opportunity to lead just for seeming nice in their first interview, meanwhile some have to do all they can to keep their job, and a little closer to heart, give everything they have just so they can be considered to lead. I believe leadership should be awarded based off the works performed and not off of the vibes someone gives off.

Advice

When working for the University, love the moments you have here; cherish them! Not only does time for you to move on quickly approach, but so does other work opportunities. Give your all each day and after awhile, your all becomes your normal.

University Public Safety- Fire Protection Division

May 2018 • Rexburg, ID

What I liked

I enjoy most aspects of working with the Fire Protection team. Our boss, Byron Gilbert, is a really dependable, knowledgeable guy and it is enjoyable to work for him, which I have done off and on in my time with Public Safety since May 2018 when he hired me. The job itself is rewarding as you learn some things that have real-life application, especially if you are an Occupational Safety and Health major like I am. Though it can seem repetitive at times, the work that is performed by the Fire Protection team is really important to the safety of the individuals at BYU-Idaho; it definitely feels like you are doing something worthwhile and necessary.

What I wish was different

Sometimes thing were a little repetitive, but I realize that it was simply part of the job.
