Lab assistant and Mcdonalds (Former Employee), Greenville, NC – May 26, 2013
Pros: free lunches, clubs and church.
Cons: the parties.
A typical day at work was easy and calm. The professor made a list of what needed to be done, and it was done by the employee each day. I learned lab skills and my co-workers was nice. Their was no hard parts to the job, and I enjoyed worker with others as well as myself.
Nice job to compliment a full time college student
Barrista/ Cashier (Former Employee), Greenville, NC – April 30, 2013
Pros: free food
Cons: restocking products via cart from way across campus at late night
A typical day consisted of selling coffee drinks, smoothies, and coffee cakes. At the end of the shift I was required to restock cakes, drink mixes, and take money across campus. I learned how to close out the cash register appropriately. Management were understanding and stuck to the rules. My co-workers were my age and mostly college students also. – more... the hardest part of the job was restocking because the carts were heavy most of the time. The most enjoyable part of the job was its location and very convieniant for students to come by and visit. – less

Teaching Professor of Pathophysiology (Current Employee), Greenville, NC – February 24, 2013
Pros: like the area, good people, good coworkers
Cons: benefits, bureaucracy, supervisors
Salary is average, retirement is also average. Health care insurance is expensive, does not cover everything, and has a deductable and 30% co-pay. That on top of some of the most expensive health care in the country make your health care expenses here quite high. Reason: you're paying for a lot of people around here who don't. Other than retirement – more... and health care there are NO standard benefits. They do offer policies you can fund entirely yourself but the options are weak, not as good as policies I've had elsewhere. The Flex contractor is horrid. they'll do anything to try to keep your money. I'm thinking someone got a kickback. The president seems like an OK guy. My supervisor and her supervisor don't really understand (or apparently care about) what I'm doing - myself and 2-3 others like me. I can't figure out why we don't have a supervisor who understands what we're doing. The coworkers are regular folks. The university is bureaucratic and PC to a fault. It's all kind of fake. The town is partly Southern and partly wannabe university town. The road network is inadequate for the amount of traffic and the town is bounded by a river on the North and a railroad West of mid town. All this contributes to traffic and makes driving aggrevating. Many careless drivers too - watch out because they'll pull in front of you so close you have to brake or hit them. They also continue on after the red light so be careful taking off when your light turns green. Shopping is box stores and chains, not much innovative here. There are a few good local restaurants but most are chains. I like the local people but a lot of the population is from elsewhere and some are OK but others brought bad manners with them. The climate is hot in the summer time and cold in the winter, not so hot as Mississippi or Texas nor so cold as Iowa or Pennsylvania, but fairly humid most of the time. Good recreational areas nearby if you like outdoors. A fair amount of history if you look for it but it's not widely advertized so you do have to look. – less
I love ECU because its cultural, I would go back to ECU, it was a great place to work. I loved the interaction with the professor some of them were great and others well if you take them with a grain of salt they don't bother you. Great place, I wish I had quit, its one of the hardest places to get on, but once as you are in you can advance and go where – more... ever you wish. – less
