Concert Assistant (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – May 10, 2017
A typical day at works requires me to set up a table and put advertisements of the school on the table. I also have to fold the programs cor the night and hand them out to people as they come in. I have to keep count of all the people who are coming in. Overall, It's a pretty cool job and I get to enjoy the music.
Campus Safety Officer and Trainer (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – May 3, 2017
Roosevelt is basically average when it comes to any given area of evaluation (pay, benefits, job culture, etc.) It's a good place in some ways, but because of financial pressure, many cuts have been made, and people are constantly worried about job security. It lacks some of the perks that large and more financially secure universities have (e.g., people to handle specific tasks--many employees are left doing the work of two or three people for no more pay).
Assistant I (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – April 12, 2017
I was able to work with a great group of people from a high school and several elementary schools, by working with parents, teachers, principals and other people in the community to ensure they were provided with work shops, field trips to colleges, trainings and other events. This program just didn't meet the need of the children we served, but we also worked with parents to ensure they finished their high school diploma and assisted them into finding a college to go too.
It was a federal funded programs, so therefore positons can be cut
Associate Professor & Director, Teacher Leadership (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – January 4, 2017
Roosevelt is special. Truly surrounded by academics who are passionate about their research interests AND the interests of their classroom learners. Unfortunately, enrollment is decreasing and difficult choices will need to be made soon about the continuation of certain programs. Really a Chicago gem though.

Office Assistant (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – September 14, 2016
I do love the environment I work in, my co-workers are friendly and helpful, more resembling of a family. Usual day at work is quite busy, because of multiple tasks that have to be solved by the end of the day (phone calls, emails, on-boarding sessions for students who were just hired, different workshops and seminars preparations), but overall when the day is over you leaving the working space with feeling of great satisfaction.

Admissions Counselor (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – March 29, 2016
RMU was one of the better places to work for as they used to take care of their employees through career development, continuous training and employee appreciation. Not sure if they continue this practice as I have seen many employees leave.
