Administrative Associate (Former Employee) – Birmingham, AL – September 25, 2017
Meeting people from different parts of the world was wonderful. Sometimes the language barrier made it a bit harder to speak with an individual but I was always amazed at how quickly the English language was picked up by the students.
Admissions Coordinator (Former Employee) – Birmingham, AL – June 30, 2017
The hardest part of my job was to watch individuals suffer and enduring pain. UAB is very divers and advanced. I loved working for UAB. I learned how to utilize all my resources, and just how important teamwork is.

My current work is very self directed and satisfying. It is a great mix of individual work, problem solving, patient interaction, and education.

Post-Doctoral Trainee (Current Employee) – Birmingham, AL – June 17, 2017
The post-doc office at UAB was a great resource with super helpful people. There were lots of continuing education opportunities as well and activities available for post-docs to enhance their career skills. Overall I think the university has a very collaborative atmosphere.
Overall, great experience and valuable management and leadership tools gained from each job.
Director, Office of Student and Academic Services (Former Employee) – Birmingham, AL – June 13, 2017
Very high demanding job requiring the ability to multitask your own work responsibilities in addition to leading and managing a team of employees.I learned the importance of leadership with integrity.

Instructor, Adjunct - Department of English (Current Employee) – Birmingham, AL – June 6, 2017
I have worked at UAB for five years as an adjunct instructor. In all my years of teaching at multiple schools, none can compare to UAB. The marks I gave lower than a five or due to my being an adjunct instructor; this level does not provide benefits, and the job market for instructors is quite competitive.
However, the administration, directors, faculty and students are superb. I love what I do, and UAB has only fostered my passion for teaching through support, academic freedom, and trust. UAB rocks.
Patient Care Technician (Current Employee) – Birmingham, AL – June 2, 2017
You have to be quick on your feet working at UAB. Typical day at work, as a PCT, would be check patients vital signs (temperature, blood pressure, heart rate, etc.), perform daily living notations, hourly rounds, and (if any) bathing needs. The hardest part of the job would be maintaining and making sure all tasks are completed by the end of the shift.
Patient Care Technician (Current Employee) – Birmingham, AL – May 31, 2017
Overall, my experience with UAB have been great! The floor I work on is demanding, most RN's don't help, shoot my fellow PCT don't help for the most part BUT my patients have made my day! My patients are the reason I continue to come to work. The pay is competitive and is happy for my base pay but would be wonderful if I get paid more. They have options on their health insurance which is great but the fact that my doctors are at St. Vincent's Hospital I have to pick the most expensive plan.
My boss is so sweet as with ONE of the ANM, the other not so much lol. The workplace culture is confusing because everybody work independently and can be standoffish but they are willing to help IF you ask for it.
My only downer is I pay to park in the remote parking but since I work the weekends, they aren't open so I have to park near a meter.
Discounts, pay, patients, the fact I have a job, my boss
Teacher's Assistant (Former Employee) – Birmingham, AL – May 25, 2017
As a student, being a teaching assistant was one job that I was able to balance between schoolwork, and actually working. I taught a chemistry lab, so not only was a helping out the department, I was constantly learning chemistry myself, which is something I really loved about this job. Typically, I would go in, instruct about 35 students on what to do during this lab, then proceed to make sure everybody was performing the lab correctly. I also was in charge of helping create questions for the exams, and grading them, as well. The hardest part of this job was keeping up with grading. This job has definitely been my favorite.
Peer Advisor (Former Employee) – Birmingham, AL – May 25, 2017
A typical work day was busy. I learned that as long as I performed my daily job tasks, I was content. Management was pleasant and accommodating. The culture of the workplace was quite diverse. What I felt to be the hardest part of my job was not always being able to make contact with all my clients. But the most enjoyable part of my job was the clients assigned to me.
Office Associate II (SHP/CDS) (Former Employee) – Birmingham, AL – May 23, 2017
