TELECOMMUNICATIONS MANAGER (Former Employee) – Elmhurst, IL – October 3, 2016
Great people to work with. Love working with the student organizations. I was able to be promoted in short period of time at Elmhurst college. I moved from being a technician to the Manager position in just 3 years. The college has tons of opportunities, one in particular was being able to continue my education.
General Employee (Former Employee) – Elmhurst, IL – April 18, 2016
The environment here is family-like and comfortable. Some people are afforded the opportunity for advancement. Others are content to stay in their same routine. The pay is not great, but there is free tuition for undergrad (employee, spouse, children) and 50% graduate school tuition remission.
adjunct faculty (Former Employee) – Elmhurst, IL – November 13, 2015
Adjunct in World Languages. I love teaching, but the students here are mediocre at best and very difficult to reach. Retention is the main concern at Elmhurst and not real teaching. The level of student is disappointing. Grateful for the experience, but I was told that when students complain, I should pacify them with some candy.
Office Assistant (Former Employee) – Elmhhurst,IL – June 22, 2015
I loved working here. I worked here for the summer, through the Golden Apple Foundation. I worked around a nice group of people and I liked the environment. I also liked the free lunches they provided but we do get shorter breaks. The job will keep you busy, but it's worth it. Overall its a nice place to work at.
Good opportunity for psychology student development

Student Ambassador (Former Employee) – Elmhurst, IL – July 17, 2014
My job as a student ambassador was to give tours to high school students looking to come to Elmhurst college. Quite simply, all I really did was offer a great time by giving the families a tour of the school.
Adjunct Faculty- Philosophy (Former Employee) – Elmhurst, IL – August 27, 2013
Adjunct work is miserable. You have no job security and heavy work loads. Elmhurst College, while it does offer better rates per course than other universities is no different. I lost my job because the college would have been required to cover the health care costs of adjuncts who taught more than four courses a year.
If you need a gig, it's alright for a semester. But really, get out of adjuncting as fast as you can.
Biology Instructor (Current Employee) – Elmhurst, IL – June 26, 2013
Elmhurst College is a great place to work. Wonderful students, faculty and staff! It is a small liberal arts college where you really get to know the students and the people that work there. They have a great speaker series which is open to public and a beautiful campus to enjoy.
Assistant Professor (Former Employee) – Elmhurst, IL – June 12, 2013
Teaching is not a 9-5 job, you pour your whole being into it to make sure the students get what they need, or at least feel that they are getting what they need. Even when classes end for the summer, you are still hard at work developing materials for the next school year and pursuing the research projects were on the backburner the other 9 months. As with any small college, there are politics amongst the faculty, students and departments. Avoiding missteps in this area is likely the hardest part of the job. Working with bright young minds that are awaking to new ides was probably the most fullfilling part of the job. I learned that liberal arts colleges are not the same as state universities in almost every way.
Very good environment to be, nice co-worker with an extremely great and nice supervisor..
Coach Assistant (Former Employee) – Elmhurst, IL – February 28, 2013
It was a Tuesday night i went to work and there was a lady a very nice person; she came to watch her grand-daughter play basket-ball. At that time, i was in the kitchen with my co-worker and we were preparing food in order to sell them. So she approached us and talked about her day and her grand-children; then one of my co-worker said something and she replied by saying this; "Word has soul as each of us does so we much always watch what we say and cherish them because it will always be engrave in someone memory" I don't exactly remember everything of what she said but she gave us a good advice and i liked it. After we all talked, she gave us a $20 tip and it was amazing. I always learn a lot when i converse with customers or players or co-worker or even my supervisor because they always teach me new techniques or news ways of doing things and i have information about things i didn't know. Everything at my work place was organized and customer liked it and they always come back and i think that is the most enjoyable part of my job.
