Great Place with Great Benefits!
Administrative-type Professional (Current Employee), Gainesville, GA locationSeptember 10, 2014
Pros: benefits, free tuition, vacation time, staff gatherings
Cons: pay is below other schools, office budgets are low
I love working at Brenau. It is a great place to work and full of awesome people. Everyone is friendly and it's got a small town feel to it. The pay isn't in line with other colleges in the area but the benefits tend to outweigh those schools anyways. I would highly recommend anyone working here.

Fun/Challening Work Place
Assistant Stage Tech (Former Employee), Gainesville, GAAugust 18, 2014
Pros: better knowledge about staging equipment
I loved working in the theaters. There was always something for us to do. My supervisors always had a smile on their face and would always crack jokes and make the workplace fun. They were always there whenever I needed help. The people I worked with became like family. I could always talk to them about anything and everything. There were days where it was very stressful, but we got through it as a team. Sometimes we stayed late to make sure things were done, but we got it done. They are the only reason why I stayed at Brenau for as long as I did.

An honest days work
Maintenance Staff (Current Employee), Gainesville, GeorgiaOctober 23, 2012
Pros: outstanding benefits and time off
Cons: extremely low pay for the type and difficulty of work
Every day starts out the same. Work orders that were received overnight are passed out to the respective technician. Most work orders are reactive maintenance, as opposed to proactive. Working for a private University is a world of difference from a publicly traded company or the military. Co-workers are typically easy going people who would be willing to drop most any project, to lend a helping hand.
The most difficult aspect of being a maintenance technician with Brenau is that every work order submitted seems to be an emergency, and there just aren't enough hours in a work day to satisfy the work load. However, there is job security in other staff members poor planning.
