EKU GURU (Former Employee) – Richmond, KY – August 31, 2016
The hardest part of working here, was knowing that I had to go home at the end of the day. The people and work culture are dedicated to the education and success of the students. I loved working here and with the people in my office.
MBA Program Coordinator, AACSB Project Manager (Current Employee) – Richmond, KY – June 21, 2016
Great place to work if you value flexibility in your schedule and ample amount of vacation time. Poor place to work if you are the main breadwinner for your house hold as pay is at least 30 percent lower than comparable positions.
NETWORK ANALYST (Current Employee) – Richmond, KY – February 17, 2016
A typical day involves coming in around 8:00 in the morning, checking our work order database, Footprints, and then going about the day completing tasks. As a student, I was also tasked with the somewhat menial tasks of organizing equipment, helping transport server racks and UPS' around when they were needed. Additionally, I worked on the campus emergency phone system, maintained the camera server, and helped troubleshoot our various wireless access points.
Management is one of the best I've ever dealt with. You are expected to do your job and be competent but there is little to no micromanaging as long as the results can be achieved. My co-workers are smart, intelligent people who have a drive to succeed.
The hardest part we have with the job is there can be a lack of communication between people. The trouble ticket system helps to keep people informed on what needs to be done, but end users sometimes do not have their issue resolved quickly. Tickets are created but aren't escalated to the right departments right away due to the sheer influx of new issues every day.
Good work environment to gain entry level experience
Administrative Assistant I (Current Employee) – Richmond, KY – March 15, 2016
I attended EKU as a student, and decided to work there after graduation. The benefits are fantastic (insurance, retirement, and even tuition free classes to employees and their dependents). However, the pay at EKU is not comparable to the same positions in other universities, and does not take into consideration your experience or education.
Caring university with student, faculty, and staff interest at heart

Support Service Associate. (Current Employee) – Corbin, KY – July 30, 2015
A typical day at work is helping students be able to get help with blackboard, appointments, greeting customers. There is something different that comes along throughout the day that you may need to learn, but in this job it is usually the same routine. Management is very supportive as long as one does what is ask of them. I have some really good co-workers. The hardest part of my job is seeing student leave after they have been here four years. You are happy to see them be successful, but it is also a sad time. The most enjoyable part of my job is helping others.
Decent Job security; no salary/cost of living increase in 5 years
Training Specialist (Current Employee) – Richmond, KY – February 10, 2013
Travel billed at 25 percent of the time; travel is actually closer to 50% or more. Low per diem and mileage rate compared to other companies. Management is concerned about overall results; not individual employees. Curriculum development and classroom training is the best part of the job. Meeting new people throughout the state has been wonderful. Hardest part is coping with different rules for different employees. VERY "Good Ole Boy" oriented.
training in the classroom...absolutely nothing like!!!! decent healthcare benefits.
