Good job-- not too demanding
Student Aide (Current Employee), Oxford, OHFebruary 19, 2015
Student aides work with students during class with the their Classroom Learning Activities. Outside of class, we do consulting hours to help with homework tutorials and cases. Grading is a large portion of time on the job.

Mostly nice place to work but promotion possibilities non existent,and and compensation is ridiculous unless you are a Professor
Associate (Former Employee), Oxford, OHDecember 31, 2014
Pros: two free meals per day, college tuition for dependants
Cons: insufficient compensation, little or no regard for individual in assignments.
I wasn't looking for a career or I would never have considered Miami. They pay extremely well for Educators but everyone else is undervalued and considered expendable.Overall I enjoyed my time at Miami.

Banquet Cook (Former Employee), Oxford, OHDecember 1, 2014
I loved working at Miami. I did not like the union because being a military wife I never had the time in one place. I like a company that promotes on ability not how long you've been there.The management was good to work with . The energy level is fast paced .

Not a career for non-salary employees
PFD Custodial (Former Employee), Oxford, OHOctober 19, 2014
Pros: tuition waiver (if you have anyone to take advantage of it)
Cons: poverty level pay, no job advancement, poor management, nepotism, hr, lack of pay raises
This is not the same Miami of the past. After budget cutbacks, there is no such thing as job security. The bean counters manage the budget like a for-profit business. In the private sector, that's common sense. However, this is still a state funded institution as much as they try to manage like a private school. One person is now expected to do the job of 4. Corners are being cut and it shows.There are no incentives to do exceptional work because there are no rewards, just an expectation to do more work. The "new" Miami does not plan for you to stay there for 30 years, nor does it want you to for that matter.

Wages are poverty level. A person cannot survive on the entry level wage with most positions. Benefits are being taken away little by little. Health insurance was a benefit that used to be 100% on Miami. Newer employees who haven't been grandfathered in pay for insurance now. As far as advancement, there is no such thing. Nepotism runs rampant. Miami is too top heavy with managers and more managers.

This is not the place to go if you are looking for hourly pay. As far as salaried position, that's a different story.

Laundry
Custodian (Former Employee), Oxford, OHSeptember 8, 2014
I did laundry and cleaned buildings all day. The Management was not very organized. Did not get offered health insurance. Did not learn much about a big company and how they do things. The most enjoyable part of the job was the co-workers.

Grateful for my years at Miami
Presently retired (Former Employee), Oxford, OHJuly 30, 2014
Pros: job advances
Cons: not being able to a day shift
I have to say Miami University has been good to me. I took advantage of every training and educational benefit that was available to me for job advancement. I had to work off shifts from my husband sometimes, because of childcare, but it has all worked out for me and family.

The hardest part of my job was trying to deal with co- workers that didn't feel the same as me.

Working at Hydrations
FOOD SERVICE ATTENDANT (Former Employee), Oxford, OHJuly 8, 2014
Pros: a fun and productive place to work.
Cons: not enough hours and no benefits.
I learned how to make smoothies and milkshakes, assist customers, sanitize dishes, keep a healthy work environment, and stock food. The managers were kind and supportive people. The co-workers were friendly as well. The most challenging part of the job was using the cash registers for it was different than the ones in retail. The most enjoyable part of the job was making smoothies.

Pros: it is just enough of a job to keep you living another week if you don't mind the daily beat down
Cons: management, pay, no advancement, hr department, parking, being treated like..well nothing like you have treated before
Really bad management. No going up the ladder unless you are family. This was a great place to work but now it is bottom tier. I left a couple of months ago because of this. Did I mention bad management! I would guess that over half the employees have more years, more skilled training and higher education (some with degrees from Miami) than their managers. Don't do it. Don't bother putting in for a job. They already hired someone before they even post. They just post it to look good. 99.9% of time. Oh did I mention they hire family and family friends 99.9% of the time.

Graduate Assistant (Current Employee), Oxford, OHJune 4, 2014
I have loved working at Miami for the past two years. The people are wonderful, and the work environment is very friendly. As a Master's student here, I would say though that the school is more geared towards undergraduates. One of the biggest perks of being a Graduate Assistant was the "Faculty" parking pass which gave me access to almost any parking lot.
