Good place for laid back people
Research Assistant (Current Employee), Birmingham, ALNovember 7, 2013
Not too much pressure and also not too much salary. People are nice with each other like many places in the South. It is good University to study, because this city really doesn't have to many things for you to do. The hospital is a good resource for doing research.

Customer Service, Accuracy, timely manner are must
UA Professional Staff Assembly (Current Employee), Tuscaloosa, AlabamaNovember 3, 2013
I deliver mail to departments and students across the University of Alabama. We start our day by sorting mail by departments. Then we fine sort the mail into each departments boxes. We then prepare our vans by the locations of the departments to deliver the mail. We fill our mail tubs by how we make each stop. The hardest part was learning each route – more... and how to prepare for each stop. I enjoy meeting and greeting our customers every day. I love to make sure our customers our happy with our service. While delivering their mail we gather the outgoing mail. We bring back the outgoing mail and process it for the delivery trucks to pick up. This is a very busy department that requires accuracy, customer service, problem solving skills. – less

Awesome staff and sweet friendly girls.
Housekeeping (Former Employee), Tuscaloosa, ALOctober 15, 2013
Pros: meeting my girls, my co-workers.
Cons: ridiculous bullying by the alumni. no raises, no benefits
I absolutely loved this job. I got to work the hours that fit my busy life. but most of all I loved my girls and my girls loved me. They were so sweet, caring, funny and always helpful.. I did general cleaning in the mansion 4 floors from the basement to the 3rd floor. Management was not good at all. The housemother was terrible and stressed the crew – more... out especially the Housekeepers and Butlers. The alumni made this house a terrible place which the girls were always complaining and just made it a negative environment you always had to walk around on egg shells which made you even more nervous and caused you to forget to do something or do it wrong. The hardest part of this job was putting up with the Alumni they were not nice ladies they constantly pick and criticize everything you do which will eventually lead to your termination. I was awesome at my work, and fantastic building a relationship with the girls, but they did not like me for some reason so I was doomed to begin with. The staff was wonderful we all clicked like brothers and sisters and when we could we always helped one another out. – less

They put a lot of emphasis on academia while still allowing you to have a life.
Graduate Teaching Assistant (Current Employee), Tuscaloosa, ALSeptember 5, 2013
Pros: free social events, amazing invited speakers
Cons: small, southern town (if this isn't really your thing)
The University of Alabama provides a lot of opportunities for graduate students. Teaching Assistantships, if awarded, are a secure way to pay for school and receive some money through instruction of lower level classes. The pay is decent, the amenities on campus and in Tuscaloosa are typical of most college towns, and the people are very friendly. The – more... graduate departments do a wonderful job of putting together lectures series, bringing in guest speakers, and providing outlets for future prospective career options. They also encourage all students to have a social life, and do so by setting up dinners, outdoor trips, pizza parties etc. Everyone is very enjoyable to be around, and I have had a wonderful experience within this University's graduate studies program. While balancing the work load and teaching is most definitely the hardest part of the job, the academic mentors are incredible with assisting and providing helpful insight whenever possible. – less
