very easy job and easy going job environment. The compensation could've been better, but for the amount of work I did, I couldn't complain much. It did get busy around the office but nothing was too over whelming. Everyone really rallies and helps each other out.
There is great chemistry between the staff and management.
Plumber/Pipefitter (Former Employee) – Keene, NH – July 25, 2017
An overall great working experience, fantastic work environment. The management does not not over manage the staff, they trust their staff will do their job and do it well. There is something to be said for that. If employers could respect and trust their employees and allow them to do their jobs the way they know, I believe we could have a much happier workforce.
A good place to work, but still struggles to live up to its potential.
Lecturer (Current Employee) – Keene, NH – June 16, 2017
As an adjunct faculty member, the school offers a reasonable salary, but job security and collegiality vary from department to department and semester to semester. This is not too different from most colleges and universities. The administration is in a constant state of flux due to the lack of a clear institutional strategy and being nothing more than a temporary resume builder for many administrators.
Keene State College provides an excellent situation for students to work in the field they are going in. Working in the research department was a humbling experience. I got to work with Autistic children and study how their minds worked in regards to emotion compared to a child without Autism.
Relaxed work environment and an easy job to go along with it
Mail Clerk (Current Employee) – Keene, NH – May 11, 2017
Almost every day I work in the mail room as a mail clerk. This job is very relaxing (with the exception of certain holidays) and is a nice way for a college student to make money. The people that work there are very friendly and helpful.
Keene State College (Former Employee) – Keene, NH – April 20, 2017
I worked as a Adjunct faculty. They did have a union where adjunct could purchase Health Insurance which was great, but overall they do not offer any benefits to adjunct faculty. Otherwise, my experience there was always good.
Restoration and Permaculture Internship (Former Employee) – Keene, NH – March 29, 2017
Set internship goals. Report to your advisor and establishing goals for the day and or week. Keep open communication with advisor via email and in person during office hrs . I learned the basics of how to restore an ecosystem on a community level with native and edible plant species.
Eco-Rep (Current Employee) – Keene, NH – March 6, 2017
I greatly enjoy working with Eco-Rep's. I was and still am passionate about the job and what it entails. I love teaching people ways to be more sustainable and eco-friendly. It is very rewarding when you are able to explain various environmental issues, such as climate change, to someone who does not understand it, and the ways that you can help or minimize the contributions.
You get to work with people who are just as passionate about the Earth and environment as you are.
KSC used to be a great place to work, and it still is, depending on which department you are in, but the climate has changed for the worse over the past several years and most employees are overworked, very stressed out, and are fearful of their job security. The benefits are great which is why most people continue to stay, but the overall environment is not good or healthy anymore, which is too bad as this is detrimental to the education of the students, and the overall health of all of the employees.
I was a dietetic intern at Keene State from 2015-2016. The Internship was well run and the program was able to match me with diverse opportunities in Western Massachusetts and New Hampshire. I had a fantastic experience with the program and would highly recommend it to others specifically those interested in community nutrition.
Tour Guide (Former Employee) – Keene, NH – July 19, 2016
Keene State College is a great college. Not just in academics, extra curriculars and sports but is welcoming all students with new experiences and life long memories. The admissions department is so friendly and immediately welcomes you to Keene with open arms and answers to questions. The other tour guides are super friendly students are there to give you their own perspective!
I have been a tutor for a short time and I adore it! Management is fantastic to work for and the position is great as i get to help other students while really cementing my understanding of the materials.
Comparing classes with other friends attending different schools, the longer classes; yet less of them per week, gave a seemingly less stressful work load week by week and opened the opportunity for a life outside school. Great professors with strong interests in their teachings keep the interest up as well as meeting some fantastic people who will continue to be friends for years to come made the whole college experience fantastic. Not to mention I learned an incredible amount about something I’ve loved throughout my life and got to create the stepping stone to continue doing what I love.
Great gym, food, downtown, campus in general
Curriculum forced un-interesting classes, some annoying winterizing techniques, expensive laundrey
Keene State College gives a unique opportunity to students who want to earn extra credits. You can work as a Teaching assistant and provide assistance to educators and students. There are very few of these positions and are hard to get.
Everything about the job is great except for the Director. You will be micromanaged to death, told you are inadequate and constantly criticized. Watch what you say because people will befriend you and then stab you in the back. Oh and don't ever raise your voice to the students because they are the generation of entitlement. Good luck.....you'll need it.
