Desk Assistant (Former Employee) – Belmont, CA – June 21, 2016
On a typical day at work I would answer the phone or help anyone who came into the office. I learned how to communicate with different people on a daily basis. My co-workers were great and I loved them. The hardest part of the job would probably have to be not knowing an answer to someone's question. The most enjoyable part was interacting with new people everyday.
Great at first, then you realize that everyone is a little crazy
Assistant Director (Current Employee) – Belmont, CA – April 27, 2016
The biggest complaint you will hear from any employee is that they are short-staffed. Next on the list is that there is no support from upper-management - improper training but you are expected to just dive into the deep end. You are not sent to any conferences or training related to your job, you are not given any guidance to perform well, and there is very little motivation to do well. What is professional development? Since pay is not competitive enough, you get a lot of below average hires that do not know what they are doing. If you were sane when you started, you might find yourself losing some of that sanity towards the end.
You can accrue a lot of vacation and sick hours, medical/dental/vision (but not the best plan for families), holiday pay during Christmas through New Years day as well as other holidays throughout the year
Low pay, demoralization of your soul, unrealistic expectations of employees
Adjunct Professor (Former Employee) – Belmont, CA – April 29, 2015
I worked with supportive faculty and staff who were dedicated to the success of their students. Classes were a reasonable size and I was given plenty of creative freedom in terms of instruction and materials.

The people there were great to work for and I really enjoyed the job. The work culture was family friendly. The typical work days were 8-5 and there were many paid holidays and generous vacation. The work was very interesting and the environment was intellectually stimulating,
I worked at NDNU briefly and wish I had spared myself the experience. The truly nutty manager I had when I was there is now gone and we will see if turnover slows down in the library. The general atmosphere of the campus is good, but there was a fair amount of employee dissatisfaction, and justly so, because of the poor benefits. Not a bad place if your partner or spouse can provide benefits from his or her job.
Be sure to read recent newspaper articles about current lawsuits before going in for an interview or accepting a job.
Telecounselor (Former Employee) – Belmont, CA – June 17, 2013
Our job was mainly to call prospective students and see if they were planning on attending Notre Dame de Namur University. If they were thinking about it, our job was to explain why our school would be a good fit for them, or if it wasn't.
Graduate Advising Analyst (Former Employee) – Belmont, CA – February 13, 2013
Notre Dame University is a great training ground and gives its employees a wonderful foundation to become very progressive management candidates in other types of industries. They are willing to teach and provide opportunities for continued growth and development!
