Student Teacher (Former Employee), Storrs, CT – July 25, 2014
Uconn was worth every cent of its tuition. I worked 40 hours in the classroom as a Head Teacher as part of the training. We learned observation techniques, sent weekly emails to parents, planned outdoor and indoor activities, had training sessions and seminars, prepared snack,and learned and implemented all the safety and sanitary regulations.
first twenty years were awesome place to work. Moved to another building with different managment.
general trades worker (Former Employee), Storrs, CT – July 23, 2014
Pros: great benefits
Cons: managment needs to feel what employees under them feel
Management did not care for work force only bottom line. Focused on negative. Seldom positive. For twenty years have had excellent reviews. This building reviews were satisfactory. No room for growth and or advancement.
Graduate Research Fellow (Former Employee), Storrs, CT – July 21, 2014
Pros: free activities, collaboration, compensation, and office space
Cons: parking, healthcare, and management
A typical day at work was at your own pace but there were set deadlines every week. I learned many laboratory techniques with state of the art equipment. The management lacked experience in some situations. Co-workers were very friendly and helpful at all times. The hardest part of the job was the uncertainty of the results produced. The most enjoyable – more... part of the job was learning a lot of different techniques and not having monotone work. – less
UConn Nepali Student (Former Employee), Storrs, CT – April 25, 2014
I was a tutor for almost a year. It was a great environment to work. We would be in the Q Center(quantitative courses tutoring center) waiting for students to come for help. Sometimes students made an appointment to meet and sometimes they would just come and we would help them out. My co- workers were very nice they would help out if needed. The most – more... enjoyable part of the job was when we helped the students and they would understand it and do well in the exam. – less
Great job to give you skills and experiences to apply towards career.
Research Assistant I (Current Employee), Atlanta, GA – April 7, 2014
Pros: very flexible hours.
A typical day is spent counseling participants in our behavioral research study. I have learned a lot about data collection and all the processes of managing and conducting a research study. Management is not the best I have ever had. Coworkers are friendly and willing to help when needed. There is nothing hard about this job. The most enjoyable part – more... of my job is knowing that I am working on something that is going to help the community. – less
TUTOR (Former Employee), Stamford, CT – March 26, 2014

Graduate Business Center Administrative Assistant (Current Employee), Hartford, CT – March 18, 2014
Pros: freedom to approach tasks your own way, all the fresh air and sunshine southern california has to offer.
Cons: lack of opportunity for advancement.
A typical day consisted of "putting out fires." Taking on customer issues as the came. I learned to be self sufficient and become solution driven. I had great co-workers in my time at G&K but the organizational structure forced most of the work to be independent which I felt hinders everyone. The hardest part of the job was being successful in instances – more... where you were lacking in resources and or support. The most enjoyable part was getting to help people and in the process getting to know the customers as people and not as customers. – less
