Research Assistant (Current Employee) – Researcher – January 27, 2016
SIUC provides a excellent work circumstance, and workbench making you productive. Many knowledgeable professors can be reached here, and they are friendly to communicate with, so my academic level is improved by regular communication in my research area: rock mechanics and fluid flow in porous medium.
A positive learning environment for the students in the nursing programs
Clinical Instructor/Lecturer (Former Employee) – Carbondale, IL – December 6, 2015
I was able to Utilize my skills as a clinical educator in a variety of hospital settings. Share my knowledge base and guide student nurses through the daily routine of nursing care at the hospital bedside. The Hospital staff was not always welcoming to the students, but the School Staff was welcoming, inviting and a great place to spread my eductor wings.
Sharing my knowledge with the students, guiding them along the way and sharing in their excperiences
Having alot of growing pains, some personell could be more helpful with adjunct staff, and things could be organized better from moving to the classroom into the hospital
Receptionist (Former Employee) – Springfield SOM – October 29, 2015
Family practice nurses are unbelievably rude to the patients! They are rude to the Dr. residents that work there also! They ask preceptor a to train new employees but the preceptor are miserable and use the union as a way to treat people rudely and unfairly. Terrible in Family Practice mainly. Patients walk out of their appointments all of the time!
Family practice nurses very rude and unprofessional
Graduate Assistant (Current Employee) – Carbondale, IL – October 7, 2015
Supportive management. Promotes professional development and advancement. There is a lot of red tape and guidelines that one must follow in order to get a task completed. Coworkers and supervisors are great. There is a lot of work variety in what I do day in and day out.

Ticket Office Associate- Staff Member (Former Employee) – Carbondale, IL – September 9, 2015
Typical day at work was come in sign in on your computer and wait for the phone to ring to assist customers. The part I enjoyed the most was making the customers happy and giving them what they ask for because it's all about them. The hardest part I say, is dealing with an angry customer but its nothing that I can't handle. My co-workers were great we were friends outside of work also.
Teaching Assistant/Instructor (Former Employee) – Carbondale, IL – August 23, 2015
work at SIUC was a good experience to enhance my undergrad education and helping and encouraging students with using their skills in order to maintain the knowledge they get in classes so they can apply it in labs. Professors at SIUC department of technology help you to manage your time with helping you and giving you advices of how to manage the lab and prepare for it.
Teaching and Research Assistant (Current Employee) – College of Mass Communication and Media Studies – August 22, 2015
A typical day is fun and productive. It begins with me prepared to teach a class full of bright minds at 9am. I usually have a very interactive class section. Afterwards, I go up to my office, attend to students individually, grade assignments and work on research. I also plan for the next class.
Meetings with very bright minds
Not enough time in the day to meet with more students
Senior Systems Administrator (Current Employee) – Carbondale, IL – July 22, 2015
The only way to get a promotion at SIU is to get another job offer in the same area and threaten to leave unless they match it. There are no raises. The HR departments makes internal promotions incredibly difficult. IT is fine but the overall administrative environment is awful.
IT department teams are good to work with
low pay, no overtime (even if you work overtime), horrible administration
Very exciting and interesting field in neuroscience striving to make a difference in traumatic brain injury
Laboratory Technician, Research (Former Employee) – Carbondale, IL – June 24, 2015
Professor was flexible, very knowledgeable in this field, and the University provided excellent and proper laboratory space and tools in order to meet the needs of researchers. A typical day included carrying out different test on rats to analyze motor function and daily responsibilities of working with rats. Then histological processes were performed, followed by the cell staining process and microscopic evaluation. The job was interesting and enjoyable always striving to make a difference.
Interesting topic, always learning more about the field
Building & Ground Staff (Former Employee) – Carbondale, IL – June 15, 2015
For the most part all I did was take out trash. I would at time have to clean floors, windows, or other various surfaces. My job overall was to keep most of East Campus of Southern Illinois University clean.
