I really loved working at union and being able to be apart of their student body. They treat their students and workers with lots of respect. I enjoyed answering the phone and also assisting the residents in the girls dorm.
I get to interact with lots of people on the phone and in person.
Researcher (Former Employee) – Schenectady, NY – June 26, 2016
Performing research at Union College is great: the campus is beautiful, the facilities are top notch, and there are plenty of very qualified personnel to assist.
If there is space for improvement, I would encourage more funding or support for research efforts. Housing and meal plans would be a great help, because the compensation for research is modest to begin with.
Teaching at Union was rewarding because of my personal commitments, and because I had motivated students.
Professor of Congregational Care (Former Employee) – Barbourville, KY – June 2, 2015
The Union College teaching experience was professional, and a fun experience. Nothing about the experience was hard. I connected with my passion for clinical pastoral theology and pastoral counseling ministry in the local community from the social location of pastor in community.
Student Athletic Trainer (Former Employee) – Barbourville, KY – February 28, 2015
I would help the school's athletes with their injury rehabilitation and pre-competition warm-ups. I learned many rehabilitation techniques for all areas of the body as well as advanced first-aid and life saving techniques. My management was the Athletic Training staff I learned a lot from them as I worked by their side with various sports teams. The hardest part of the job would actually be when I was learning everything in the classroom. My favorite part would have to be putting everything I learned into practice right after I learned it.
Research Assistant (Current Employee) – Schenectady, NY – February 18, 2015
Co-workers were as passionate and as curious as I was about the fascinating condition that is Synesthesia. We were able to gain insight into the advantages and disadvantages of having Synesthesia by analyzing their performance in multiple working memory tasks.

There was always something to do no idle time which was good made the time go by faster. I learned team work. Management was always there for you needed help on or off the job.My co-workers were the best we all worked as a team we helped each other out if we needed it.The hardest part for was when we were sthrt handed and had to do extra work. Which ment you had to rush to get it done.Which ment oyu could not do quality work. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people i worked with.
A super fun working environment with supportive staff
Student Assistant (Former Employee) – Barbourville, KY – August 1, 2012
From this experience I learned a lot about time management considering the type of position this is I had to complete my duties and responsibilities while enrolled full time in classes. I learned a lot about leadership styles and how to react in certain situations. The hardest part of the job was juggling it while taking classes. The most enjoyable part of the job was developing relationships with others and proving care and support.
Biomedical Science/ Pre-Physician Assistant (Current Employee) – Lincoln, NE – April 14, 2015
Union College is great environment to work in. People here are so nice, they are always willing to help you if you have any questions. I like it here. I learn from my work place and my school environment.
Union College provides great benefits in a family oriented atmosphere.
Business Office Assistant (Current Employee) – Barbourville, KY – June 14, 2012
A typical day is to receipt any tuition or transcript fee that we might receive and basically just whatever might happen across my desk depending on the need of the student whether it be communicated through the telephone, email or an office visit. Students needs range from making copies to sending faxes, reviewing/explaining their student accounts, or assisting them with their insurance claims.
When not helping a student, I do filing and make collection calls on past due accounts.
I'd definitely say the hardest part of my day is making those collection calls. It's always enjoyable to make a call and have it end with a long over due payment, but those calls are few.
benefits, paid 2-week christmas break and free tuition
Campus Activities Board Student Assistant (Former Employee) – Barbourville, KY – May 15, 2013
I really enjoyed my time at Union College as a student assistant with Campus Activities. Our popular phrase "work smarter, not harder" will stick in my mind for a long time. Working with CAB improved my organization and time management skills, and I had the privileged of working with great co-workers and had leadership I could learn from.
Network Technician (Former Employee) – Lincoln, NE – December 20, 2013
I have enjoyed working for Union College mainly because of their very flexible time schedule, they knew I was trying to finish school so they understood when I needed to get off on some days. My co-workers i enjoyed very much, everyone was was, helping me with questions I ever had. Hardest part of the job was being sent out on a job and not having the full knowledge I needed to complete the job, I also worked by myself most of the time, so it took longer to do most jobs. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to finish a job and having the satisfaction of seeing it work. I learned how to be productive with my time, not being ashamed to ask questions when I don't understand something, and I feel I received more knowledge from working than I did actually being in class.
Work Study Student (Current Employee) – Barbourville, KY – April 6, 2014
