Student center representative (Current Employee) – Lexington, KY – June 12, 2017
Working for the University as a student allows for personal development, time management development , and will get you more involved on campus. I would recommend working for the university to any UK employee.
Graduate Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – Lexington, KY – June 12, 2017
Demanding work which can be rewarding but has minimal compensation for the hours and effort required, particularly in non-STEM departments. Students come from a variety of backgrounds at this land-grant university, from rural counties to urban centers.
Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – Lexington, KY – June 8, 2017
They paid me to go to school, basically. I taught, and I enjoyed teaching, but the pay was not much beyond tuition (which, again, is great, and I'm not complaining about that), and the benefits were essentially nil. But, while I was working on my PhD, it's tough to beat something that will let you graduate with no debt.
Graduate Research Assistant (Current Employee) – Lexington, KY – June 6, 2017
I was employed as a graduate student to be a teaching and research assistant for the Mechanical Engineering department. Typical activities included grading papers and holding weekly office hours (3 hours per week required). The position was part time and very flexible. The work environment included many driven and friendly individuals working on research projects and furthering their careers. The hardest part of the job for me was balancing classes with the position's responsibilities, but this rarely was a big problem.

Faculty gets along well. Pay is good. If you don't mind the publish or perish paradigm associated with research schools this is a great place to be. Students in the business school have to meet minimum requirements to get in so there is a high level of competency in business school students.

Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Lexington, KY – May 13, 2017
The University of Kentucky is my home away from home. While there may be over 60,000 students who attend UK, it feels like a small, close-knit community. With over 500 student organizations, there are also plenty of ways to get involved and meet people who share the same passions as you.
