Research Assistant (Former Employee) – South Kingstown, RI – February 1, 2017
It's good to work at the University of Rhode Island under the supervision of an instructor. Get familiar with advanced civil engineering technologies. The environment here is very friendly and productive.
Administrator (Current Employee) – Kingston, RI – July 28, 2016
This isn't a bad place to work if you're trying to build a resume, but don't plan on advancing here unless you play golf with the boss or self promote really well.Politics is rampant and blatant. The atmosphere in my office is cut throat and people will climb on you to look taller. Upper management has no skills in leadership. They manage people but don't lead. The philosophy is that the beatings will continue until morale improves. Students are treated as an afterthought. most people I know do their level best to get rid of them as quickly as possible. This is because there is no sense of being a part of an empowered team. We live in a culture of blame. No value is placed on employees. Longevity is not valued, and in fact is punished. There is no employee feedback system for "superiors" including the President and Provost.
Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – Rhode Island, RI – September 4, 2016
Nice work environment,Good University, fairly pay.University of Rhode Island is located in Kingston of Rhode Island. Quiet and beautiful campus. Faculty and staff are very friendly and helpful. Really enjoy working there.
There I learned to maintain a professional attitude at a window and over the phone. I also learned how to use "Vendini Ticket Agent." My co-workers were usually one at a time and very easy to get along with. A typical day involved selling tickets over the phone or in person through a computer agent, handling money, and filing tickets.
Team Leader (Current Employee) – Kingston, RI – April 12, 2016
Working as a student at the Language Lab at the University of Rhode Island is a great learning and working opportunity. The management understands the necessity for flexible scheduling around class-time and academic obligations. Such a positive work environment is reinforced by quality co-workers and a reassuring level of feedback from lab patrons.
Web Developer/Programmer (Former Employee) – Kingston, RI – May 21, 2016
This is coming from the perspective of a student. The place was okay to work at least in terms of the ITMS department. The pay is what you would expect an undergrad student to be paid and for the most part it's just a mundane place to work.
Graduate Research Assistant (Current Employee) – Kingston, RI – February 19, 2016
I have worked for the university in multiple departments including food service, residence halls, and as a graduate teaching and research assistant. I worked part time through out both my undergrad and graduate degrees. The school is very good about working with your schedule and knows that your education comes before the job. Although the administration department is a little slow on paper work and you really have to nag them to get things done in a timely manner. overall I enjoyed working for the university and I learned many things from the various potions I have held.
Science & Engineering Fellow (Former Employee) – Kingston, RI – February 2, 2016
This was my first internship, the summer after my first year in college. I gained valuable skills in grant writing, developing a curriculum for a science camp, reaching out to other individuals and deans at various colleges for funding.
Excellent place to work with lots of opportunities
URI Biological Control Lab Assistant (Current Employee) – Kingston, RI – July 30, 2015
A typical day of work consists of either lab or field work that could be for any one of numerous research projects that we are working on. The most enjoyable part of the job is definitely the feeling of really making a difference- the work we do helps control invasive plant and insect pests and has a really positive impact on the environment.
