Athletic Training Student (Former Employee), Hamden, CT – January 2, 2013
I would highly recommend this University to anyone looking to further their education whether it be for undergraduate or graduate school. The professors, staff, and faculty are unbelievably supportive throughout your education.
Cons: having to create work orders for more difficult problems, mandatory breaks
Providing support for students and staff on a walk in basis. Create work orders as needed. Install and troubleshoot software. Fix printers and copiers. Create work orders for further troubleshooting and reimaging. Management is always available for additonal help. The most enjoyable part is helping people. The hardest part is not being able to solve – more... advanced problems. Worked on the grad campus which was slower. Mandatory 30 minute break after 5 hours. Pay raise after a certain number of hours. – less
Quinnipiac University is a very great place to work, and Campus Security was very professional and well-run
Security Officer (Former Employee), Hamden, CT – September 6, 2012
Pros: great staff and procedures in place made it a very easy place to work.
On a typical day, I patrolled the Junior & Senior extension of the main campus as well as the athletic center. It was a wonderful place to work, and I learned a lot about security plans and procedures.
I'd say the most enjoyable part of the job was helping students with whatever various needs they had.
The toughest part was witnessing instances when – more... students were out of hand or disobeying university policies, and I had to take care of the situation. – less
nothing (Former Employee), hamden – August 20, 2012
Pros: small green campus
Quinnipiac University is a small private institution which lacks multi culturalism and awareness for diversity in their staff. Human Resources is very slow and tedious in getting back to potential employees. They are intolerant of applicants with a diverse background. If you are the typical American girl or guy next door your probably a shoe in but – more... only with massive experience, degrees, or if your 50 years of age and above. Human resources does not even have the courtesy to send people replies on their applications or does not give you the time of day to reject you or accept you. They pretty much have you strung on a string from the day you apply to extending to four to six months. They resist follow up calls and follow up from applicants in regards to their applications. Overall they are horrible in their work ethics at human resources and no one says anything about it. – less
Adjunct Faculty (Current Employee), Hamden, CT – August 2, 2012
Pros: strong community
Cons: cramped campus
There is always room to grow in this department if you are willing to do so. Meetings with other adjunct faculty are stimulating and educational. Management is encouraging and rewards hard work. Students are well educated, coursework is stimulating, and class sizes are highly manageable.
