Eastern Kentucky University Desk Worker (Former Employee) – Richmond, KY – June 6, 2017
Easy Job, Federal Work study. You can do homework and study while you are at work. Job can be tedious depending on who you work under and the other staff members. Students can be super rude, so prepare to take some sometimes.
Great place for administrative and academic positions
Custodian (Current Employee) – Richmond, KY – May 29, 2017
Facilities Services is not well managed or possessed of a professional environment. The expectations for employee performance are unrealistic and based on arbitrary, illogical assumptions linked to building square footage.
Graduate Assistant (Current Employee) – Beckham Hall – May 2, 2017
EKU is a great place for student workers, but the faculty and staff are not treated as they should be. Difficult to get promoted and get tenure. Constantly encouraged to seek additional job offers in order to get a pay raise
Adjunct Instructor (English) (Former Employee) – Richmond, KY – April 26, 2017
I am an adjunct instructor (part-time), but EKU is a great place to work. The students who go there are friendly and good to work with. The job is rewarding, fun, and good. You make a difference in what you do there.
Productive and fun workplace with great co-workers
Guru (Current Employee) – Richmond, KY – April 23, 2017
I love my job. I tutor kids from all walks of life and do it alongside fantastic people. My bosses are fun and helpful to all. If you're not tutoring someone, you can do homework in a productive environment. The hardest part of the job is whenever you have to deal with someone or something you're not sure how to handle, but rest assured there will always be someone who can help you. You really couldn't ask for a better place to work!
Fun people, great experience, occasional free food
No benefits (but it's a student job so you can't expect much)
Productive and fun work place with great fellow employees
Graduate Assistant for EKU's Women's Basketball (Former Employee) – Richmond, KY – April 7, 2017
I get to be involved in the sport I love every day. I have learned that to be a coach you have to have a lot of patience. Every girl on the team has a different story and you must learn how to adapt to them and figure out how to understand them. It is very important to build relationships with your athletes.
Lead Coordinator, I.T. Geeks (Current Employee) – Richmond, KY – April 6, 2017
This is a wonderful job for a tech-oriented EKU student! The hours are very flexible, and the staff are very laid back and accepting. I learned a lot about technology while working this job, and at the same time was able to help students and faculty.
Professor Assistant (Former Employee) – Richmond, KY – March 3, 2017
The program was very supportive of families as well as students with kids while attending college. Working while in college can be very stressful but EKU makes life easier for their students while working
