hard-working and pretty physical
Building Service Worker ( B.S.W) (Current Employee), Champaign, ILJuly 13, 2014
Pros: benefits for my children after 8 years of service tuition is half off
Cons: health care is not free after you retire anymore
I've been at the U of I for almost 12 years. Every school year is a little different. Due to different students and living environment. A typical day for me would start off with a meeting with bosses, then proceed to pull trash and start my daily job duties. When it comes to working with co workers we would work together depending on the job/time of – more... the year. Typically I work Monday through Friday 8:00-4:30p.m. I have my own job/run that I'm responsible for everyday. When it comes to management I get along with them very well and seem to always be the one they ask for help with, any extra tasks they may have to be assigned. The hardest part about my job is it can be very physical such as times in the summer, there's a lot of physical expectations required. Such as, (going through all the dorms debunking or de-lofting beds, moving all room furniture, some buildings with no elevators, scrubbing and stripping floors with buildings with no air conditionings). These all things that can be hard about the job, but when you work with a good team of co workers it makes things work well together. The most enjoyable part of my is being around the students and getting to know them, because they come from all over. – less

Excellent place to work
Staff Nurse (Former Employee), Chicago, ILJuly 11, 2014
Pros: ongoing education
Cons: short lunch hour but, torerable.
Close knit work groups. Managed very well.
Mandated to take an assessment class. Able to see my own patients. Able to diagnose with physician input. Able to do cryo-therapyy and gyn exams. Looking back on this now, it seems a
dangerous but, as newer nurse it was very exciting.

UIC has the worst staff imaginable. The workers in "less desirable" work status' have the nastiest attitudes, and it makes coming to work extremely uncomfortable.

Wonderful learning experience
Intern (Former Employee), Urbana, ILApril 10, 2014
Cons: i would have liked to program to have lasted longer.
The internship was about researching and applying different methods to create what we called a "lab on a chip". The hardest part of the experience was working for weeks on a solution only to have to start again to find a different way when it didn't work. The best part, however, was when we presented our finding at the end of the program to engineering – more... students and teachers that were interested in the subject and answering their questions. Hopefully the little part we played furthered one of their studies. – less

The collections had not been well maintained before my position was created. The job required far more work than one person could perform on a graduate assistant's hours, but I was grateful for the position.

PEER REGISTRATION ASSISTANT (Current Employee), Champaign, ILFebruary 27, 2014
It was a welcoming and friendly environment. The supervisors were flexible. The goal of the job was to ensure incoming students enrolled in courses that were well suited for their goals and to ensure their success. All registration assistants would seek help if the student they were currently helping possessed similar goals to a another co-worker. Communication – more... was key in this setting, incoming students seek help on courses, scheduling and any school-related problems. Peer registration assistants must be familiar with the registration system and consider the students test scores, supervisor's suggestion, and the students career goals.. The ultimate goal is that the students are content with their upcoming semester. – less
