teaching the Marching band for SNU is fun easy going environment. the students are great. the director is a soft spoken man who tends to have a lot on his plate and forgets to keeps his staff informed.
short notices, not alot of timeto work with the kids.
Loan Coordinator (Current Employee) – Bethany, OK – August 5, 2017
Southern Nazarene University is a very class-centered workplace. I loved the majority of the people I worked with, but the culture is one of disparagement for anyone without a doctorate. A typical day is generally more than 8 hours, and very stressful. The systems and processes are clunky and outdated, and the workload extremely heavy.
Associate Professor (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – July 3, 2017
This college is like a little town unto itself...everyone knows everyone, and often new hires are made from within, often from within families who are already employed there. The reverse is true, then: if you were an outside hire and someone from within wants you gone, for whatever reason, you are gone. There is no fairness, no protection here. So with this being the case, it should be no surprise that there are no tenure contracts at SNU...the kind of tenure that exists here is the kind that only nepotism can ensure.
Secretary/Receptionist (Former Employee) – Bethany, OK – May 31, 2017
I enjoyed the staff but most of all the learning and teaching environment. It was a great opportunity in my life, but also getting to meet the future grad students and what they had to offer in the world of Psychology.
Administrative Assistant Graduate Studies Nursing (Former Employee) – Bethany, OK – March 24, 2017
My typical day would consist of enrollment, preparing class materials, answering the phone, interacting with students and faculty. Learned the process of preparing for commencement and the values of Christ.
Barn Hand (Former Employee) – Bethany, OK – January 6, 2017
I would arrive to the barn,early in the morning, and make sure that each horse has their designated food. I would catch horses and tie them up to fences so that when the camp kids arrived, they could prepare their horse for the day. Some horses received a second and third meal everyday. I also mucked out stalls and filled water. There were also odd jobs such as moving hay and horses.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Bethany, OK – February 11, 2016
I would work daily and would come in and file what needed to be filed and than I would work in the data base to enter any new applicant. I have learned to type a lot quicker and to be patient when I have to wait for tasks to do. My management was very friendly and reasonable. Great people. The hardest part of my job would be having to wait for projects to do. The most enjoyable part would have to be the people I work with, never a dull moment in this office.
Public Relations Team Member (Former Employee) – Bethany, OK – November 2, 2015
I love what Southern Nazarene University utilizes their Public Relation teams for, but can't stand the pay. You basically spend an entire summer working all day, and make no real paycheck. Management is very disorganized, and there is a lot that could be improved upon, but still a great experience to be a part of.
Night Shift Security Dispatcher (Former Employee) – Bethany, OK – May 18, 2015
It was a hostile work environment, with low pay, uncomfortable office with faulty air conditioner/heating. Supervisor was an ex-cop who liked to yell rather than getting the true story about anything. Created policies on the fly, even violating the colleges policies, creating misunderstandings and chaos. Unresponsive upper management who would never listen to subordinate complaints about him. Inappropriate and unprofessional verbal and written critique by this supervisor bordering on illegal.
Work was easy
Putting up with supervisors inappropriate harassing behavior not worth it
Equine Director/Manager (Current Employee) – Bethany, OK – January 13, 2015
A typical day would include managing feeding horses, administrating medication, riding, coaching, selling of horses, recruiting, etc. The students and horses at SNU are incredible to work with! I am thankful for this job teaching me a lot about adaptability, because of all the different people, horses and activities that take place. I learn something new everyday.
Employee (Former Employee) – Bethany, Oklahoma – January 13, 2015
Love my supervisor, love my job but the management team hides behind the "small,private, Christian school" to keep wages low when there are less expensive, small, private, Christian schools that pay their employees much, much better.
