Journeyman HVAC Mechanic (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – October 13, 2013
The U of A provided excellent benefits,health insurance,403B plans.I was able to provide my daughter to a degree with very low out of pocket expense. The U of A has the largest chill-water system in the world. Along with 14 miles of utilities tunnels housing chillwater,steam,electrical (13,888 to 4160 to 460 ) and high-tech fiber optics. I really enjoyed working there and decided to retire and find a job working close to the ocean which I love.
I worked at many sports games at Mckale center and Arizona stadium
The pay in Arizona being a right to work state is low
Enjoyable work environment but minimal job security

The University of Arizona is a wonderful place to work and provides many benefits to it's employees. The relaxed environment is unmatched. Unfortunately for employees who are working under grants or contracts funded outside of the University, if the contract loses funding, the University may give minimal warning and/or make minimal effort to continue the employment of those involved.
