Satisfying job, good enviroment,
Supervisor - Paint department (Former Employee), Kansas City, MOAugust 9, 2013
Pros: good people, pay and benefits
Cons: challenging people, budget freezes
I worked with a 5-10 man crew of painters. Every day had it own challenges. Coordinating our activities with the other shops on new construction, and customers (faculty and campus departments) on work orders they had approved was at times a careful balancing act.
Every customer needed to percieve they were our top priority.

Pros: flexible
I attend Intermediate Accounting 2 classes together with all the students in order to know what material is being covered at every point in time, so that I can plan my sessions accordingly. Also, I conduct 2 sessions weekly during which I help the students to understand the material better and prepare the for the tests.

Ok place to work
Coordinator (Current Employee), Kansas City, MOJanuary 31, 2013
Pros: decent amount of vacation, personal time, sick days and it is easy to get time off when you need it.
Cons: parking, salaries, raises.
The salaries are pretty low unless you are exempt. Raises are hardly ever given and are not merit based. The last raises given were in 2011 and they were only 2%. If you are an exempt employee expect to work well over 40 hours a week. The parking is very, very, expensive if your are staff or faculty, the lowest rate is $40 a month if you make under – more... 35k a year. It goes up from there. Parking used to go up $2 every year. So expect that $40 to go up as time goes by. Advancement is difficult. Management is different in different departments, some good, some bad. Many positions require masters degrees and pay in the mid 30k which seems low for a masters. Often asked to handle very difficult student issues when managers should handle them, only given a thank you. Thank yous are not worth much when you hear them so often. – less

Great for Work-Life Balance
Financial Literacy / Debt Management Counselor (Current Employee), Kansas City, MOMay 18, 2012
UMKC is a great place to work if you are seeking a work-life balance. They offer great time off, literally my jaw dropped when I got to see how much time off we have, especially after coming from a corporate environment where time off was rare. My experience here so far has been great. The potential to advance is definitely minimal in comparison to – more... my last job, but the benefits are far outweighing that at the moment. I would highly recommend them to any local applicant or even applicants willing to relocate. Kansas City is a great city to live in and I think one of the most underrated cities in America. – less
