I find Rhode as an enjoyable working place where we meet different people and their characters and different behaviours of one being so its a fun place to work at with the benefits and not discriminating of others and with the fact that when they employ a person they also advise people to place their spouses on data base as well and if a parent has child that studying in the university they give them a discount on payment of fees now isn't that very nice, we also receive food lunch at work at food services.
Pros
Yes
Cons
Normal hours

A typical day at work consisted of typing communication documents and taking notes in a court of law. From this job I learned to be organized and discreet. The workplace thrive with mutual respect and generous sharing of knowledge. The hardest part of the job was seating in court and listening to how someone was gruesomely murdered.
Pros
free lunches
Cons
long hours

My work involved working with a group of 20 students tutoring them in Accounting 2. I enhanced my time management skills as i had to make time within my study schedule to accommodate preparing for the tutorials. It was great to work closer to the lecturers who are generally free and approachable people. The hardest part was failing to resolve a question on time with a student or taking long to clarify. The most enjoyable was learning aspects which were helpful to my own subjects as well.

Meetings would indicate what needs to happen in the week. I learned teamwork, time management, organisational skills and working under pressure as I'd have to juggle my and the students' workload. Rhodes encourages learning and is very inclusive. The hardest part of the job was having to work with people who didn't want to learn. The most enjoyable part was working with different personalities.

It was a short vacation job. I learnt so much about communication and team work. The challenging part of the job was working late as I had to be at reception for guest that were coming in. but I truly enjoyed working with the people I worked with.

I ran practicals for undergraduate students. This included setting up and running the practicals and showing students how to use the equipment and lead them through the experiment and run through relevant theoretical information. Required a lot of hands on work and patience. Was rewarding.

Flexible work hours are a huge benefit. The focus on research is limiting for someone who is more interested in teaching. There is limited accountability amongst colleagues.

My day at work has it challenges and also be a good working day. There is daily interaction with student’s staff, sand various stakeholders There is continuous two way communication with the supervision team and they are regularly update on any new issues. The biggest challenge is with the abuse of social media and the distortion of factual matters. This is very common by the students on the matter, and thus once this is conducted requires damage control. In this environment, there is a lack of acceptance to modernize ways of working and thus in order to have this implement one will as they say take control and be effective. This is what I starting in-house with the unit and have thus spread to the various committee I’m affiliated to within the university, for e.g. the Disciplinary Committee, Safety & Events, Hall wardens, etc. and not limited to. I have a passion for what I do and interact with various stakeholders internal and external, government departments when there is is a VIP Protection detail to plan.
