Simulation Technologist (Current Employee) – Zamierowski Institute of Experiential Learning – March 13, 2018
The simulation center is a cutting edge department that regularly engages in team-based innovation, especially in the tech team. The technicians and technologists are tasked with delivering simulation for learners from both the hospital and university side using high-fidelity manikins (pulses, blood pressure, breathing, heart rate, talking, and even OB c-sections and delivery) and integrating other hospital equipment for a realistic learner experience. The tech team schedule is dictated by the center schedule, so hours can be challenging and vary from 7am to 6pm but typically 40-45 hours per week. The team is a great group of people who regularly assist each other with tasks and problem-solving. The whole team has an all-hand-on-deck sort of feel. I have worked in a wide array of industries (agriculture, food manufacturing, construction equipment manufacturing) and this is the best group of people I have worked with.
Interesting work, comp time for overtime, occasional catered lunches, beautiful facilities
Hours are not consistent (always 40+), parking and transportation on campus is a challenge

Management is unorganized and doesn't standup for their security officers
Security Supervisor (Current Employee) – Kansas City, KS – July 26, 2017
This is one of the worst places to work. it's plain and simple, the management is unorganized and the captains and higher up management DO NOT stand up for their officers. They are always making up new rules and then don't follow through with them or only enforce them on certain officers. To be honest, if you're a former police officer you will make it here, but if you aren't then don't bother applying. The male captain in charge of security here is buddy buddy with one of the officers and he favors him and doesn't enforce any rules towards him. The just had a hiring session back in May and June of 2017. They started with 39 people then they took 19 out of those 39 applicants, but out of those 19 applicants only 10 went onto the third stage of the process. They ended up only hiring 3 people total out of those 39 people to begin with. People are always quitting here due to the day to day political bs that goes on around here. Overall I would not work here unless its your last option.
lots of over time
mangement is awful, too much politics here, too much favoritism and captain favors certain people
Payroll Manager (Current Employee) – Kansas City, KS – November 30, 2015
The most enjoyable aspect of this position is serving others. Co-workers seek me for assistance and training within the payroll system. I thrive on challenges and learning all there is to know and more. Missing a deadline is not an option. I will stay late, work weekends and holidays if needed.
KU Medical Center is a little behind the times when it comes to workflow within the campus. Paperwork, yes paperwork, gets lost in the shuffle between departments.
Managers and employees are in need of support when submitting payroll and absence requests. Employees turn to me for this support for they know I am trustworthy and willing to assist rather then talk to someone they are not familiar with. My manager prefers I do not interact with the staff and suggest I send them the manual to find their answers.
Continued knowledge of the payroll system with includes interation with other departments.
K.U. Medical Center, an outstanding Employer and Academic University
