Very difficult senior manager made the work very difficult. Played lots of silly games.

Vey difficult senior Manager who played a lot of silly games. Admin staff were great. The work was interesting although the teaching approach does not practice what it promotes. Very directive when it purports to be learner centred.

Pros

Interesting work

Cons

productive and challenging workplace which provided an enjoyable environment

Working at Victoria University was a rewarding experience. My colleagues were enjoyable to work with and always willing to lend a helping hand. I was also encouraged to forge my own path within my duties and I am so grateful for that experience. I learned a lot throughout that process.

Fun place to be

The work place culture was awesome. The staff was from diverse backgrounds and everyone used to be fairly nice to one another. The people from librarians through to managers helped each other and always have been a motivation for me.

Perfect

VU has been very generous to me. Since I commenced my Law Studies, VU has entrusted me with various roles across different department. My Managers have been very supportive along the way.

I was lucky yo have a really good coordinator

Enjoyed the students as they are more motivated than TAFE and VET Private College students. Had a really good coordinator and found the culture quite good overall.

Productive and fun workplace with great support from Manager

Every day is different so it's difficult to describe a typical day. Overall it's a great work environment. Hardest part of the job is that when trying to resolve issues, students and staff sometimes do not respond to emails and phone calls.

Pros

Great manager

Cons

No job security

The Australian Graduate Surveys

Completed tasks as assigned. Completed face to face and telephony surveys. Data validation and coding activities complete. Completed paperwork as assigned. Gauged understanding of student overall experience. Found out very hostile and political environment. Team worked with besides the surveys manager at the time who was way too skilled and developed for the unit could not implement the changes required for the unit. Besides the academics who knew what they were doing, non academic staff posed a lot of problems for the unit.

Pros

Work was completed in an orderly manner

Cons

Nonsense irrelevant politics between academic and non academic staff

Hands on and friendly

the various hospitals i have done my placements expanded and developed my nursing skills, my communication with patients and families are friendly and professional. my patients care is a priority. i love working with other collegues and achieving my goals per shift. I have learnt time management skills and became very good at it. the best part was making my patients smile and the hardest part was saying good-bye at the end of each placement
