My time at Queens has been wonderful. Athletic deportment does a great jog with coaches and also with student athletes. The athletic director maintains a great relationship with the community which generates a great fan base.
As an admissions counselor assistant, I sometimes acted as a front desk receptionist for the entire office, sometimes vetted potential students, and often answered questions for students who were interested in the school.
Mostly filing and grunt work. I loved every minute of it. I got to pose ideas of what I thought was the best and I got to do it. Total autonomy was encouraged all the time. I was trusted with great responsibilities frequently.
Productive work environment with friendly peers and freedom.
Tutor (Current Employee) – Charlotte, NC – March 9, 2017
I enjoy working at Queens. It is convenient because I'm already there as a full-time student; the staff who oversee it are friendly; and I already know and get along with all of my coworkers since they themselves are students!
I only work in the library part time, as I'm a full time student. I'm not fully immersed in the day to day operations of the University but I get a sense that most employees are happy with their jobs and the culture on campus is very diverse and open. I rarely feel pressure from my boss or management so overall i would say for a person in my circumstances with this job that I can't really complain.
First step for my career with co-workers who are very kind and help each other
Sport Marketing Intern (Former Employee) – Charlotte, NC – January 9, 2017
I learned how to edit picture and video like basic skills for promoting events. Also, they taught me how to manage sports event at school. While managing sports events, I got more passion on our team game playing so I was so happy when our team won a game.
I would come in and check emails. I would pay invoices, set up meetings with the Dean from faculty and students. I learned how to do a lot of administrative activities and how to communicate better. My supervisor (the Dean) was great. Very helpful and nice and never showed anger towards anyone and was always willing to work towards a solution along with all of my other co-workers. Hardest part was getting thrown into the fire the first day I started. I really had no training. The most enjoyable thing was knowing I was going to get off at 5 and was able to have a life outside of work.
Adminstrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Hayworth – February 26, 2013
I loved the job until the job like many was eliminated. Great place to work, friendly people and students are great. I worked part time and was able to got to school even though I was part time. Wish my job had not been eliminated.
Program Manager (Current Employee) – Charlotte, NC – January 23, 2013
Queens like any other non-profit lags in providing competitive compensation but they more than make up for it with a great working environment, flexibility in scheduling and perks like being able to take classes for free... I love my Fridays off in the summers, my free Master's degree & the access to campus amenities!
Loved working in the business office. The campus is a great place too.
Coordinator of Human Resources and Payroll (Former Employee) – Business Office – April 7, 2011
I worked at Queens Univeristy for several years in the business office as their Coordinator of Benefits and Payrolls. Loved working with the faculty and staff. Have lovely traditions of chapel on Wednesdays and Tea on Tuesdays for staff and students.
taking courses free, campus atmosphere, cafeteria lunch and dinner are both great
