Student Assistant (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – May 25, 2016
Having worked in the library, as a research assistant, and as an exam proctor, there's a trend I've noticed across the departments. People encourage you to grow. There are so many good thing I could say about the departments I've worked with, I don't know where to start.
Free food after events, sponsored lunches, mentorship
Public Safety Officer (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – January 30, 2016
management was not the best, but there is options if you wanted to advance in the department, I haven't been employed with them for about 3 years so things could have changed, but there is still a very high turn over rate, which proves otherwise.
Support (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – September 11, 2015
Worked for over 10 years. Had a positive experience but when through many changes including, institution-wide layoffs, reorganization, outsourcing, etc. But many people stick around. Good community of people. Closed during winter break. Hardest part was being on-call for my position.
Graduate Student (Current Employee) – Boston MA – May 8, 2015
While in graduate school, I was encouraged to undertake my own projects, learn new technologies all while having the full support and encouragement of faculty. With this urging, I am currently constructing my mobile application and mobile website. I not only find these two pursuits educational, but also quite enjoyable.
Along with this, we were reimbursed for subscriptions to professional publications as well as a portion of the cost to attend conferences.
While here, the emphasis was on collaboration, planning, building, testing and presentation of our finished products. The most enjoyable portion of my education so far is the realization of a mental image and then sharing it with the world. The most frustrating is the periodically poor feedback recieved from my collegues and instructors.

Technology & Circulation Assistant (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – January 8, 2015
A person could learn a lot from working at simmons college and the people there are very friendly. The hardest thing for me was sometimes not finishing what I was working on before I'm done for the day
Buildings and Grounds (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – October 13, 2014
The best part of any day at work is when I have made a customer happy. There are few work request that make me cringe, they usually involve a clogged drain. At one time I was learning quite a bit at work, cutting in and installing new door ways, how to install ACT ceilings, office renovations to name a few. Now the crew is so small we are not able to do much of this work anymore and outside contractors are used. For me this is the hardest part of the job, no longer mentally stimulating.
The benifits are some of the best I have ever received. Although they have changed for new employees.

Cashier/Food service (Former Employee) – Brookline, MA – April 8, 2014
Simmons was a nice place to work at it showed me how to be more independent as well work with a team. my co workers were great and the diverse students that I have came in contact with was a plus. The hardest part about this job was sometimes providing the necessary assigned lunches for students who have requested them. Some were picky and very unsure of what they wanted. Also some staff was very unreliable at times to help out. It was a great experience overall.
