Campus life is great. Tremendous opportunities for individuals.
Nutrition Educator/After-School Coordinator (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – November 4, 2013
During the school year, my day is typically busy with teaching and educating children on health within the Chicago Public Schools. Our staff are usually in schools for the entire day. Once, the schools are finished for the particular day, we usually have to conduct an after-school program within the Chicago Park District. These programs last for the entire school year with different schools as well as different parks.
In the summer months, our staff is busy working summer camps. We educate and provide physical activities for the kids. We usually have 5 to 6 parks within a day.
The most enjoyable part of my job is having the opportunity to work with the public and the community in assisting them in their lives.
Lots of People. Tons of Opportunities. Good benefits
Excellent place to work with a great community atmosphere
Postdoctoral Research Associate (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 12, 2016
UIC has provided many opportunities for continuing professional development, including volunteer roles such as Laboratory Manager and Student Facilitator. The atmosphere is relaxed but hard-working, with individuals always pulling together to meet deadlines. Being a school and a healthcare provider presents unique advantages as well as challenges. For example, the clinic is an excellent resource for patient enrolment and the acquisition of research samples, but project students require additional training and supervision when it comes to laboratory/research skills. Students always appear happy and eager to learn, which makes mentorship enjoyable!

Security Guard (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 30, 2016
I worked for UIC Police Department and I believe the company could be so much better. You have so many power hungry people on top who don't pay attention to their staff and the needs of the department. There is a big revolving door. During probation, which is 6months, don't make any mistakes because they will let you go. And be prepared to work forced overtime at least twice a week. Heads up, they do not care about the needs of you or your family. When you're forced to stay, you have to stay.
