Graduate Teaching Assistant (Former Employee), Tuscaloosa, AL – May 28, 2013
I gave the overview of the experiment, then I showed how to set up the equipment and then just be there if they have any question. Actually the students have lot of questions/problems while they do experiment. But if you love Chemistry and working with undergraduates, you will love this job.
Being a referee is a challenging, and sometimes thankless, job but the management is well aware and does well to counter this.
Intramural Football Referee (Former Employee), Tuscaloosa, AL – May 22, 2013
Pros: flexible scheduling
Cons: dealing with players with poor sportsmanship
The job could be challenging at times, but those in charge were very patient and understanding, as being a referee is not an exact science. They teach you step by step everything you need to know to perform well. The scheduling is the most flexible I have ever seen. Management steps in when players get out of control, usually after a call the player – more... disagrees with. – less
Assistant (Former Employee), Tuscaloosa, AL – March 16, 2013
I enjoyed working at The University of Alabama. I love working in a higher education environment because every day there is something new and different happening. I enjoy interacting with students and administrators on a daily basis. The hardest part of the jobs comes during the busiest periods of the school year, which can be a little stressful but – more... it is never unbearable. The best part is the job environment because there is never a dull moment working with students so you will not get bored. – less
Great environment with great people. Easy to learn and grow.
Strength and Conditioning Intern/Coach (Current Employee), Tuscaloosa, Al – March 7, 2013
This is a great place to learn strength and conditioning. They have a master strength coach on staff to learn from which is a great opportunity in itself. Just enjoying the team atmosphere, staff and the players.
Office Associate II (Current Employee), Tuscaloosa – February 27, 2013
Pros: job security. after 6 month trial period, it is almost impossible to get fired.
Cons: pay and insurance benefits and you have to pay to park.
I work at the main campus as an Office Associate. The pay is awful. You have to pay to park. Retirement is good but they take out 7.5% of your already low salary. Prescription drugs are expensive.
It depends who you work for and in what department for your work enviornment. Some professors can be very cruel. Think Sheldon Cooper. However, some professors – more... can be wonderful to work for. – less
Stock Room Assistant (Current Employee), Tuscaloosa, AL – January 22, 2013
Working in the stockroom is very enjoyable. The most enjoyable part is the fact that I'm able to meet new people everyday. My co-workers are also very sweet people. I feel like my supervisor has a very open relationship with her employees and insures us that we can talk to her about anything.
