Administrative Assistant Intern (Former Employee) – Kenai, AK – February 13, 2018
Overall Review is Excellent! The healthy atmosphere and positive work environment allowed everyone, including myself to flourish at anything within the Human Service Field. Director's, Manager's and Administrator's are very helpful and well-coordinated. Such professionalism is hard to make off, for everyone put in effort and sacrifice. Therefore, being able to learn at a steady and a positive pace, and exceed all expectations is simply priceless.
Interpersonal intrapersonal abilities and capabilities, as well as technological advancements in the employment or internship field.
Mathematics Tutor (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – January 1, 2018
Teaching people and being of help are the top of my list of priorities in life. This job allowed me to incorporate both of these into one position.
On the job, I learned the importance of reviewing information and taking the time to dive into new information. In doing so, one is provided with the chance to enhance one's own ability to teach and the understanding of the material.
IT Tech Support (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – December 30, 2017
UAA departments operate in a confrontational manner, causing distrust and miscommunication very frequently. This leads to a culture of behaviour that characterizes other departments or working groups hostile or inferior to one another.
Management consistently ignores requests to mediate problems or change policies, instead publicly announcing some complaints and secretly interrogating random employees over others, fanning the flames and demoralizing employees directly.
Academic Counselor (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – December 27, 2017
Although the payoff isn't as good as some of the jobs in the area, the skills that you will acquire will definitely aid you in the future. I would recommend taking a job with them if you have a stressful school schedule or you just want experience in an office setting.
Custodian (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – November 2, 2017
Cleaning floors, walls, restroom, etc. I learned that every job is about the what you put in too, management at the time was like seeing who they could get staff in trouble, answering radio calls and moving all over the campus to work in different areas, going home after a hard day at work.
Faculty, Department of Biological Sciences (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – August 22, 2017
I loved working at UAA and the opportunities it gave me to give back to my community. It was inspiring to work with such a diverse set of students (and faculty/staff!). While UAA is currently undergoing some growing pains as Alaska's economy teeters on unstable footing, I feel confident that they will find a sustainable operating scenario in the near future. I'd love to come back and work there again some day!
Student Worker - Admin (Current Employee) – Anchorage, AK – July 13, 2017
As a college student, there are job opportunities that do not overwhelm you. Supervisor works with your schedule and allows you to pace yourself. You can go to class and still make money to provide for yourself. Supervisor is very understanding
Understanding supervisor, lots of down time to complete homework, tasks that will keep you busy.
Down time is frequent, no paid time off, no advancement.
Library Assistant (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – July 3, 2017
There was never a time where a worker could be bored. There was always something to do whether it be shelving books, setting up a new display board with a new theme, or aiding the front desk with patrons that need our assistance. I learned that even in a library can you learn that teamwork is needed to successfully complete any given project. I also learned that keeping an open mind to learning other tasks outside of your expected duties can be a big help to your other co-workers that may be struggling to keep up their end. You could always expect food to make it's way onto the workers table and it'd be there simply for thanking the student workers for their hard work. The hardest part of the job I would say was that my salary did not change given how many extra duties the student workers were given following a few job structure changes in the department. The most enjoyable part of the job was that our supervisors did what they can to make it enjoyable.
ability to work around your school schedule, able to set up preferences of when you wanted or didn't want to work, friendly environment
Veterans Affairs Coordinator (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – May 22, 2017
Management was great when I started, but declined dramatically in my last 2 years after a new manager was hired. Devoted 15 years to this institution only to leave over horrid management. As I've heard time and again, employees do not leave jobs, they leave managers, and I did just that.
An engaging work environment with stringent but manigable workloads.
Resident Delegate (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK 99508 – May 8, 2017
While the position of Delegate was a purely elected one, it never the less was well-worth the hard work to better the lives of my fellow students. The constraints were limited on how and what was required of me, yet I took pride in the assorted programs that were initiated under my purview.
Light work load, adaptable to student schedules, highly suportive command structure
