First Assistant Coach (Former Employee) – Worcester, MA – April 12, 2015
Holy Cross was a good learning experience for me and my family. We were able to meet some really nice people throughout the community. The school is a very prestigious academic institution that has a number of alums that have gone on to do tremendous things after their time at Holy Cross. I was fortunate and blessed to have coached at Holy Cross for the past five seasons. I was able to teach, coach, and groom some great young men.
trades (Current Employee) – worcester, ma – December 14, 2014
The pay and benefits have not been updated since the 60's. Most trades are underpaid by at least $10/hr. This is not a true merit shop as people with the same job title and responsibilities can make double based on seniority. It will take you 8 years to acquire 3 weeks vacation and 16 years to acquire 4 weeks. You will be on call all weekdays and only be paid for being on call for weekends in rotation at a whopping $25 before taxes. If pay and benefits could be updated for modern times this would be a fantastic place to work, but don't count on that.
Quiet and organized workplace where you have to be attentive to what is going on.
Music Library Assistant (Former Employee) – Worcester, MA – August 1, 2013
Have to be updated on the latest music department events so if students, professors, or staff have questions about an event you are supposed to know the answer. Have to be organized and know how to work the equipment. The most enjoyable part was assisting other students and professors.
Electrician (Current Employee) – electrical department – March 13, 2013
The only grip I have is that they are decades behind in pay for tradesman. The longer you work there the better it gets. For example I have worked there as an electrician for five years (just broke the $20 mark) there are custodians making more based on the fact that they have worked there longer. I just feel this is wrong unskilled labor should not make more then skilled labor. That's it for me. The place is gorgeous and a good environment for work.
