Center Assistant (Current Employee) – Woodland Hills, CA – July 5, 2017
National University is a nice place to work, director is amazing, understanding, and efficient. My coworkers are great people to work with. Benefits are decent. Employee wages are low with no room growth.
Adjunct Professor (Current Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – September 2, 2017
The culture at NU is amazing. It has a clear organizational structure and the instructors are treated fairly by both students and staff. I would recommend this position to anyone seeking collegiate level employment.
Digital Media Managing Engineer (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – August 7, 2017
The university has a great work/life balance, however, the compensation and benefits for staff members is very poor. In addition, job security and advancement is also terrible. There are some good managers but a majority of them are just plane awful. The job culture is just average due to many staffers having to seek other part time employment to supplement their pay at the university.
Having said that, the people I worked with at the Los Angeles campus were great colleagues.
Adjunct Instructor/Program Development (Former Employee) – Pleasant Hill, CA – July 10, 2017
National University absorbs better programs, strips out the dysfunctional for inclusion in their overall mission and discards the elements that differentiates the program or makes it unique. NU management focuses on old outdated ideas and prevents innovation within its individual programs.
Nursing Adjunct Lab Instructor (Current Employee) – Rancho Bernardo, CA – July 2, 2017
Working at National University has been a very rewarding experience. I have enjoyed the people I work with and the students. National University provides an excellent experience for working adults who wish to further their education and/or change their career.
Hospitality Manager (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – June 23, 2017
HR was corrupt. Management was poor and under qualified. Pay was grossly uncompetitive. Im sure many different locations will have different experiences. The culture at the Location I was at was very poor and unprofessional.
Peer Mentor (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – June 20, 2017
This place has been amazing as far as work-study positions are concerned. Everyone is really friendly and helpful. everyone in the center is a Veteran and a student so they all know what the students are going through. The managers care about their team and almost treat us as a family. I got a lot accomplished at work both helping students in their transition from the military to school. But, I also got time to study and apply for jobs. This was a great job while I was transitioning from the military into the civilian world.
Close to home and school, time to study, good feeling you get from helping people
Limited amount of hours you are allotted to work, low pay
Student Finance Advisor (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – June 10, 2017
The people that I worked with directly were very supportive and welcoming. My favorite part of the job was meeting with my students face to face. I also enjoy teaching students how their Financial Aid works and how their tuition will cover their tuition. I do believe that management would benefit from leadership training
Adjunct Professor of Psychology (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – June 2, 2017
Did not find staff particularly helpful to part-time faculty. Do not agree that students can learn an entire course of study in one month's time. Tried to reapply at another time and found the process very convoluted with little assistance.
Student/ Volunteer researcher (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – May 17, 2017
This is my university were I am attending and will graduate in June with a BS in Biology. I have worked as a volunteer on research in the lab for 2 years performing DNA extractions, PCR, and gel eletrophoresis.
ADMISSIONS ADVISOR (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – April 25, 2017
A typical day would consist of appointments and answering emails, submitting petitions. Management was flexible but stern. I truly enjoyed working with such amazing advisors. The hardest part of the job was the work load, and the low pay.
Teachers Assistant (Current Employee) – Fresno, CA – March 26, 2017
Great atmosphere to go to school in as well as work!! Instructor in EMT program was easy to learn from and has allowed me to excel in with my career. He provided strong support in giving me the tools I needed to advance.
Free Lance (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – March 20, 2017
Very friendly fellow employees and management. Pay is low but if you are a full-time staff you can qualify for free tuition and there are also good retirement benefits. Days are usually the standard 8-5.
Cert. Core Adjunct Professor (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – March 11, 2017
National University is an excellent place to work, especially if you are working as an Adjunct professor. Students at National University are working adults, so professors not only teach the learning material they also build lifelong friendships. Teaching at National University has been an incredibly rewarding experience and I hope to continue teaching there for many years to come.
All materials are provided and classroom equipment is top-notch
Occasionally issues with unprepared students can be somewhat challenging
