Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) – Lexington, KY – July 25, 2017
very stressful place to work. communication sucks, you find out an hour before the end of your shift you need to stay for an outage that may last 3-8 hours. then you are expected to come in the next day regardless. not a very safe place to work, needle sticks from bags, and exposure to blood.
great place to work although i was extremely fortunate
institutional research/survey coordinator (Former Employee) – Lexington, KY – July 25, 2017
Mostly a great atmosphere depending on the supervisors. Working at a university affords the opportunity to interact with students occasionally. I graduated from the University of Kentucky so I loved being on campus.
Administrator II (Former Employee) – Lexington, KY – July 24, 2017
I found UKY to be a typical university. There is a lot of bureaucracy. I didn't feel appreciated by the university or even within my department. My boss was not interested in the employees as much as the boss's own research and writing aspirations. I also didn't like having to sit through long staff meetings that lacked leadership and resulted in no action. Even when action plans were made, they were rarely ever followed up on. The work environment was very much everyone for himself/herself. Relationships seemed disingenuous.
Able to work from home at times
Not stable and the management didn't care whether jobs continued or not
Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – Lexington, KY – July 21, 2017
Taught two composition classes and a creative writing classes. Decent work environment considering all the cuts. But still could be managed better and more efficiently especially from a financial perspective.
House keeper, Floor Tech, Security, CNA (Former Employee) – Lexington, KY – July 15, 2017
technical schools as well as at a few hospitals and nursing homes.
After you’ve graduated from your CNA program, you will need to sit for an exam proving your competency. Only after you have successfully passed this exam are you listed in the state registry as a certified nursing assistant. Different states have different criteria that you will need to meet before you can practice in that state. It is important to find out what exactly is needed to become a certified nursing assistant from the state board of nursing in that particular state.
Teaching Assistant (Current Employee) – Lexington, KY – July 7, 2017
Engaging with many opportunities to learn. At the same time, it is pretty laid back. I usually get to walk around and help students out with whatever problems they are having. If I can't help them, there is pretty much always another TA who can go and help.
Shift Supervisor (Current Employee) – Lexington, KY – July 6, 2017
Very manageable job - would recommend to many people. Lots of downtime so make sure you know how to entertain yourself. Electronic usage policies can be a little strict so bare that in mind before signing on.
Technician (Current Employee) – Lexington, KY – June 27, 2017
The workplace culture in the department that I am from consists of little camaraderie and less variation in the day-to-day activities and duties afforded to the average position.
UK can be a great place to work, as I understand it, but my experience there has been less than pleasant. I have been patiently trying to make things work there for over a year, as well as seeking other opportunities within a rather broad field relating to my current profession, but to no avail.
Also, if you are considering working there, beware the STEPS positions. UK has a secret notoriety for keeping people in these "temporary" positions for 1, 2, even 6 or 7 - yes, I said 6 or 7 - YEARS. I myself have been a member of STEPS for 13 months now, and can wait around no longer for someone to stop squatting on a position and move up or move out.
Registered Nurse/Dialysis/Cardiac (Current Employee) – Lexington, KY – June 27, 2017
Face paced working environment. Excellent place to work if going to school. Benefits are great. Can be understaffed at times. Each floor or can be very different so if you find yourself in an area you don't like it is easy to change to a different area that suits your needs better.
Haley Miller attitude was ridiculous and unprofessional ,she took pictures of wounds on my nephews arm when he tried to kill himself.
SRNA (Former Employee) – Lexington, KY – June 24, 2017

Graduate Student (Current Employee) – Lexington, KY – June 23, 2017
Grad stipends can be hard to live on. health insurance is nice but hard if living out of town because cannot find in network provider. Teaching can be a struggle. Undergrads just want As and minimal work/.
Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – Gatton Business school – June 21, 2017
As PhD student, I was TA and main instructor of senior business minor students of the Course of Management Information System for 4 years, my supervisor taught me a lot and the department gave courses to train me how to teach the undergraduate students, which let me successfully handled all the problems arose during the semesters.
always learn some new things from the students
be looked down by students as an international female PhD student
MACHINIST (Current Employee) – May, KY – June 19, 2017
I worked under a master machinist to better learn how machinery worked so I would have a better understanding upon entering the work force. With his help I've grown as an engineer both in understanding how things work, but also how the tools to create things work. The time in the shop has helped grow my ability to communicate with not only other engineers but also machinist and will benefit me upon entering the work force.
