Resident Assistant (Current Employee) – Hickory Hall – March 16, 2017
As a resident assistant I would work my assigned hours at the front desk answering questions, signing out kitchen and entertainment equipment. Also addition hours are required to be in bedroom for the residents. These times can be spent doing school work in addition to necessary RA business such as hall decorations, door tags, or program planning. I learned the importance of time management and how to work as a team with all walks of life. Management was a major role in this job because they would be our first contact for any issues in the halls. The workplace culture gives an overview of the real world bringing all cultures together under one roof. The hardest part of my job is having enough time in the day for RA duties, school work duties, a work study job, and athletics. The most enjoyable part of the job is the people I work with and the people I interact with.
Great people to work with and a privilege to see and help the students
Accounting Assistant (Current Employee) – Mansfield, PA – May 30, 2016
My current position is very fulfilling and I've had the opportunity to learn so much from some very knowledgeable professionals. As with all jobs, there are some departments that make the job very difficult and have created a very negative environment, but overall, the University is an amazing place to work.
Assistant Football Coach (Former Employee) – Mansfield, PA – August 6, 2015
Great sports culture. The coaching staff was excellent. The student-athletes were great to coach. There are times when the athletes need that extra guidance but that made the job that much more exciting.
Substitute Art Educator (Former Employee) – PA – August 21, 2013
In this experience, I was completing my Master's Degree of Education in Art Education. This time involved creating and completing my master's level research paper examining how arts are essential for positive student outcomes. The most challenging portion of this experience was finishing up the paper and doing the final edits and reviews. The most enjoyable part of the project was completing the research and collaborating with my overseeing professor. I was able to teach college classes through this experience and I learned that I would greatly welcome more opportunities teaching higher education-the experience validated my want for being a college profession in the future.
employee (Former Employee) – campus – January 8, 2013
Mansfield University is a terribly depressing place to work. Very unfriendly environment. Difficult to work here if you weren't born and raised in rural Mansfield.
No pay raises... ever. Performance reviews are a joke and meaningless. The gossip on this campus is out of control and management seems to condone it. Low morale has led to poor cooperation, low productivity and increased turnover. Managment never shows gratitude for a job well done.
There's no recognition, no thank you's, no "good job", no NOTHING!
Great, highly qualified people quit on a regular basis due to the way they're treated. I've never seen so much turnover in a company which really says alot given the state of our economy. New people don't stay. Ever. The only people who stay here are the ones who began their career here 20 years ago and are now biding their time to retire.
Food is horrendous; on campus and off. Nothing to do here. Rentals are outrageously expensive due to the drillers. A $300/month apartment is now going for $1200/month.
No career advancement or planning, very little if any training is approved. Only union personnel get tuition waivers which makes no sense (managers kids get it, but not managers). Executive management are all dinosaurs. No young minds or fresh ideas. Not forward thinking or innovative at all. Trying to get anyone on board to support positive change is like nailing water to a tree. Impossible!
If you want to work here, go into to it knowing it's just a job. It's not challenging or fun - it's depressing and stifling. And get used to living on your starting pay....more... it won't change!less
very good health insurance and nice gym that can be used for free
no pay increases, no incentives, no career planning or ways to advance
