Night Clerk (Former Employee) – Lexington, KY – March 24, 2017
A typical day of work in a college dormroom involved checking in residents and allowing them to have guests. The best part of the job was how I learned how to be a more effective communicator and have patience with college students.
Telephone Operator & Emergency Paging Coordinator (Former Employee) – Lexington, KY – December 12, 2016
The job is primarily answering calls and directing callers to the departments or people they're looking for but the emergency paging service can be stressful. You can literally lose someone their life by not acting quickly enough on paging (I've seen it happen and that girl lost her job for it) so it's definitely important to keep a cool head and react fast.
consistent hours, good work flow, regular breaks
no opportunity for advancement, only hiring in temp positions, no benefits
Great place to work - best doctors and nurses anywhere
Patient Relations Assistant (Current Employee) – Lexington, KY – January 18, 2017
My day begins at 7:00 a.m. as I register/greet patients for their scans/doctor visits/etc. We are a VERY busy clinic, and we usually register about 125 patients per day. I am responsible for verifying that every patient's information is correct in our system. Therefore, I spend a lot of time entering/correcting/updating information. Most of my day is spent behind a computer.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Lexington, KY – January 29, 2017
I love working for the university, great benefits but no incentives. I dont know how much longer I can take working here because, lets be honest, I am really really bored and want more excitement in my life beside working in an office all day.plus, I love to move, walk, and talk, Im very energetic and will probably explode if I cant talk to people, help people, and walk with people.
Admin Staff Officer II/College Budget Analyst (Current Employee) – Lexington, KY – February 17, 2017
UK is a great place to work, the benefits are wonderful. I have learned a lot during my 16.5 years at UK and have been promoted many times. The culture at a University is quit a bit different than the culture at a private company.
Great place to work, great benefits. Must pay for parking in most cases.
Patient Clerical Assistant (Current Employee) – Lexington, KY – November 13, 2016
Great place to work, great benefits. Must pay for parking in most cases. Lots of opportunities, and lots of competition make for a more fulfilling accomplishment when achieving upward mobility within the institution.
Assistant Director (Current Employee) – Lexington, KY – May 2, 2016
The management: needs to be transparent and culturally competent. They pride themselves on competency but it isn't shown in the day to day operations or university workforce representation. The supervisor in our department treats subordinates as puppets. If you agree and ascribe to group think, you'll be okay but otherwise look out! Most hiring is done internally.
Parking: needs to be improved. one of the few places where you have to pay for parking and hunt for a parking space for 15-30 minutes on a given day.
Salary: there are some salary gaps between similar positions in different departments on campus
parking, salary, cultural competence, good ol' boy system
Nursing care tech/phlebotomy (Former Employee) – Lexington, KY – November 1, 2016
This company is not a good place to work for if your looking to advance in your career. the management says they have a open door policy, but when problems are brought to their attention they fire you. Or even worst put the blame on you.
Information Specialist (Current Employee) – Lexington, KY – February 21, 2017
Each day is a new adventure in higher education. I have learned about the workplace culture, working with numerous entities and a team to complete tasks, media relations, writing and social media management.
Staff Support Associate II (Former Employee) – Lexington, KY – April 13, 2016
University of Kentucky was a great place to work and I developed skills that are valuable in my daily interaction with the general public. I found the environment to be rewarding, encouraging and friendly. The benefits of working at UK are like few others. I still enjoy friendships that I made while in their employ,
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – UK College of Law Buildiing – January 7, 2017
Most fun I ever had in my life...management was fantastic. Learned a lot about book writing and publishing, classes offered and available. Loved my co-workers. This job was so pleasant and the environment was so pleasant there wasn't anything I considered to be a hard part of the job, I very much enjoyed it.
Housing Department- Fixit Dispatcher (Former Employee) – Lexington, KY – March 11, 2017
Good paying job, easy job even though EXTREMELY stressful at times, laid back job for the most part. Inefficient work environment, most times was unorganized, inefficient management, and unenjoyable coworkers/environment.
The Patient Access Center is a terrible place to work!
Customer Access Associate (Current Employee) – Lexington, Ky Sterlington Drive – July 22, 2016
The Patient Access Center has policies that are very different from other departments at UK. You can expect to get written up if you forget to clock in/out or if you sign in to the phone system one minute late. This is a very hostile work environment. The employees are afraid to say anything to anyone for fear it will end up costing them their job. This is a call center environment with very poor upper management making extremely unprofessional desisions causing high employee turnover. Other areas in the UK system can be great places to work but let this be a warning about the Patient Access Center near Alumni Drive in Lexington. I'm very surprised that Human Resources hasn't stepped in to do something about this.
University of Kentucky is a great place for students
President of UK AIChE (Current Employee) – Lexington, KY – February 10, 2017
University of Kentucky is a great place to be a student. It has a wonderful and supportive community with plenty of opportunities for students. It also provides a multitude of academic support from recitations taught by Teaching Assistant to free tutoring.
Wildcat Ambassador (Former Employee) – Lexington, KY – February 10, 2017
Worked recruiting events on and off campus for the University of Kentucky. • Worked University of Kentucky Football games in the President’s tent and welcome alumni and VIP to the game. • Worked for the Visitor Center call center and their “live chat” to call potential students and assist their needs
BOTANY INTERN (Current Employee) – Lexington, KY – January 4, 2017
UK is constantly under construction and they slip fees into student tuition to pay for the construction of buildings that most students will never even enter because by the time the construction is complete, the student has almost graduated already.
