Assistant Professor & Director of Opera (Former Employee) – Tuscaloosa, AL – November 8, 2013
My typical day began at 7 am and ended at 10 pm
I learned many things, for which I am grateful. Strategic planning, marketing, building a small Board, fundraising and managing a budget, and to recruit.
But it gave me more opportunity to build and manage a team of creative people. I had experience when I was in high school and college managing businesses, but this was my opportunity to build a team, learn to delegate, hone their strengths, and create.
I also had the opportunity to meet so many amazing people, within and without the university. This was the most enjoyable part of the job.
Assistant Building Representative (Current Employee) – Tuscaloosa, AL – April 24, 2017
i like working here, but i was a student so that was my first priority. Student employees get paid the same thing and can only work a certain amount of hours per week. Just something to do with my time and make extra money
Research Assistant (Current Employee) – Tuscaloosa, AL – March 30, 2017
Always seem to be issues regarding funding from either outside institutions or within the university. Every semester it comes down to the last week before you find out whether you'll even have money to pay for school or rent. Extremely frustrating and adds to the stress of an already stressful workload.
Student Assistant (Former Employee) – Tuscaloosa, AL – March 30, 2017
The University of Alabama is one of THE best universities to get a degree from. I was lucky enough to obtain my degree from there. A bonus for me was to actually work there. I got to meet so many head hunters of the university and was able to get so many perks.

The institution provided an inspirational, collaborative, and rich environment to pursue discovery. I am grateful for the opportunity to have taught hundreds of remarkable students as part of my responsibilities and service to the academy, which was made possible by the support of distinguished department chairs and various faculty committees. As a reflection of the publishing record, teaching excellence, and extraordinary service of my colleagues, our doctoral program is appropriately ranked as one of the strongest and most accomplished in the nation. I intend to honor this high bar of achievement in my future endeavors.
Mail Operations Clerk (Former Employee) – Tuscaloosa, AL – March 7, 2017
Delivering incoming and outgoing mail to each department. I learned every little detail about a piece of mail. The hardest part of the job was never knowing how much mail was being delivered or picked up from each department. The most enjoyable part of the job was my customer service.
Sales and Marketing Intern (Former Employee) – Tuscaloosa, AL – March 1, 2017
Both the physical environment and interpersonal environment are pleasant. Everybody on campus is super nice and willing to help. I learned a lot here regarding how to be a good person. As an employee, I arrived at the department building around 8am and arrived home at 6 every work day. The hardest part of the job is to come up with new strategies in making an effective strategy. The most enjoyable part of the job is to walk to campus and greet my colleagues every day.
