Typical day would depend on the amount of customers that arrive on site.
As Duty Manager and Accounts Assistant had to manage time effectively between each job role and demands of customers.

Accounts assistant role was to manage and process daily creditors and debtors with in the in house accounting package.

Daily cash up and reconciling of funds received

Preparations of time sheets and wages for processing.

maintain and manage individual , group and conference bookings

Best part of job was working within the tourist industry as you meet a variety of people form all parts of the globe and walks of life.

Being part of team who created good memories from a unique tourist attraction.

I worked as a teaching assistant and PhD student in Dunedin, Otago. Depending on the department, the culture is different. salaries for PhD and PostDocs are good and fair. However, job security after graduation is an issue. The administration workflow is amazing. Very smooth and quick in responses.

I am a full-time student working part-time for the university. I am relatively well-respected by my colleagues and the students I teach alike – with each hall of residence varying. They have set pay scales for each level of education (eg. undergraduate, graduate, masters) for hourly tutoring pay. Undergraduate is ~$19p/h for preparation and delivery of tutorial.
