Great place to work
Registrar's Office Student Worker (Former Employee), Aurora, ILJuly 15, 2014
Pros: friendly environment
Cons: part-time
Typically I would answer phone calls from students and alumni in regards to registration, transferring, transcripts or personal name/address changes. I would also scan documents and files into the Aurora University software, Datatel. I learned how important it is for the various departments within a company to communicate between one another. I really – more... enjoyed my co-workers who were a mixture of students like myself and more experienced individuals. The most enjoyable part of the job was simply the experience I obtained. Through this particular job I was able to gain office experience, scanning and copying experience and phone experience. – less

Terrible place for an adjunct
Adjunct Instructor (Former Employee), Aurora, ILMarch 24, 2013
Pros: pay per credit hours
Cons: lack of leadership, communication, and resources.
AU is constantly getting rid of adjuncts for ones with more experience; this doesn't provide new teachers with much experience. Pay is decent. You can only work a limited amount of credit hours throughout the entire year which means no sort of health insurance. I was hired at the last minute and given zero resources; I had to design and develop the – more... entire class and then I was dumped after the semester ends. My boss was a strange person. I worked in a building that wasn't even for my discipline. Never saw any of my colleagues. Felt isolated then entire time. Basically, the life of an adjunct is poor because the university doesn't want to cough up the annual salary us teachers deserve. – less

Close knit and family like work culture
Director, Student Accounts (Former Employee), Aurora, ILOctober 30, 2012
Pros: an inclusive community with occassional luncheons and "no" snow days off
A close knit and inclusive community. The culture is warm and welcoming not only to employees but it's students. I developed my management skills and excelled allowing me to advance in my roles and responsibilities. The most enjoyable part of the job was the students. Seeing them grow during their years and graduate was self rewarding in itself. Seeing – more... students go and move on to their lives was the hardest part of the job. – less

Great place to work in college!
Student Intern, University Mailroom (Former Employee), Aurora, ILSeptember 14, 2012
Pros: picked my own schedule, consistency
Cons: sometimes ran out of work to do
The mailroom was the perfect place to be at during my college years. I picked my own schedule, which was wonderful. I got to go in each morning, which allowed for some consistency.
I was a leader during my later years, because my 2 boss's trusted me, which allowed for more opportunities within the mailroom itself.
The most enjoyable part of the job – more... was getting to see most of the staff and faculty each day while delivering the mail! – less
