Administrative Specialist IV/ Transfer Evaluator (Current Employee), Kennesaw, GANovember 24, 2014
I love working for Kennesaw State. I'm only leaving because I'm moving to another city. Every office I've worked for, and boss I've worked under, while here has been fantastic. Coworkers and supervisors have been mostly pleasant to work with, benefits are decent, work is steady, and...two weeks off at the holidays! You can't beat that.

Occupational Safety Mgr. (Former Employee), Kennesaw, GAOctober 1, 2014
Pros: great working hours, ....at the point of boring
Cons: way too much of trying to hide safety hazards.
My first "State" job, and it was everything my peers told me it would be.
Was coached within my first week; "slow down there young man, it will take time to be come institutionalized, but then you'll find it good to work here.
Found that senior department heads did not really want safety, but lots of programs on paper.

The nature of what the job entails really depends on the department in which you work. I was fortunate enough to work in a department where everyone was a team player. This job really showed me how even the smallest of positions matter to the people of the company.

Program Coordinator (Current Employee), Kennesaw, GAAugust 13, 2014
Pros: employee tuition remission program
Cons: comparably low pay rates within university system of georgia
Daily student affairs activity. I've learned to manage time and resources with better efficiency. Management encourages personal and professional development. Co-workers are supportive and collaborative. Hardest part is changes in staffing in financial procurement department, which presents inconsistencies in policies and procedures with account and – more... contract reconciliation process. Limited financial resources available for capital improvements and equipment replacement. Interactions with students and staff in the facilitation of recruitment, progression, retention and graduation of students is the most enjoyable part of this job. – less

Police Officer (Former Employee), Kennesaw, GeorgiaAugust 8, 2014
Pros: great benefits such as heathcare, flex hours and every other three-day weekend off.
Cons: 12 hour shifts
The work day at Kennesaw State University was rarely "typical." There was always something going on with the students, staff and/or visitors be it a social event, marathon or student protest. I learned to take everything in stride and to keep a very level head in the face of a crisis and how to deal with anything from traffic accidents and to investigations. – more... The management was very staff oriented and always ensured that we had the proper equipment to work with, good advice when needed, as well as a helping hand when issues arose. My co-workers were more like an extended family. Everyone took an interest in what was going on with one another and we were very close-knit. We had very rigorous training every 2-3 months and although we were State certified police officers, we participated in training on a regular basis. We were very proficient and the training taught us to look out for one another.

The hardest part of my job was having to explain to a parent why his or her son or daughter had been arrest or overdosed. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with the students while on bike patrol and through giving safety classes.

Overall, my experience working for Kennesaw State University was probably the best job I ever had. – less

Very exciting, but no life outside of work
Director of Facility & Event Operations (Current Employee), Kennesaw, GAJuly 21, 2014
Pros: excitement & benefits
Cons: no time off
Its very exciting at KSU, but with a growing family I have zero time at home. On several occasions I have worked 29 hour days for events. And rarely do I have a weekend off. I was originally hired for facility operations, which is my passion. But didn't realize I would be doing event operations as well. Although, I am very good at event operations, – more... I just don't care for working 29 hour days and majority of weekends. Its also very difficult managing a facility and doing event operations all on your own. I have some part time staff, but need at least three more people to manage the work load. However, I make the most of the situation. I use it as an opportunity to learn as much as I can while I am there. Having the opportunity to learn and create something that doesn't exist is very exciting. I am an entrepreneur at heart, so I really enjoy starting new ideas. I have nothing negative to say about this employer. At the end of the day I just desire more time at home. – less
