Customer Service Attendant (Former Employee) – Columbia, MO – August 5, 2017
It was an amazing place to work because of the people. After new management things started to change for the worse and cause a disruption for student managers whom previously worked there 2+ years. Now it is better though
System Support Analyst (Current Employee) – Columbia, MO – July 26, 2017
Workload is never the same each day, realistic projects discussed, but never sought out. If you have experience and input on projects or ideas, they'll listen but never do what you suggest. Huge lacking workplace culture. Everyone has a great personality, but when it comes to mutual respect, it's thrown out the window. Hardest part of the job right now is a lack of directive. Best part is working with a wide variety of tools and technology.
Research Associate (Former Employee) – Columbia, MO – July 24, 2017
As a graduate student, I depended on my graduate adviser to lead and provide a good working environment. I was very lucky in that my adviser was a great mentor and provide me a good example of what a manager should be.
A lot of interaction with parking patrons that involved conflict resolution
Parking Enforcement Officer (Former Employee) – Columbia, MO – July 23, 2017
Started work at 7:30am most days and went to classes throughout the day as well. I learned how to handle resolve conflict on my own, and communicate with management to make a more efficient enforcing process.
Lecturer (Former Employee) – Columbia, MO – July 18, 2017
Teaching undergraduate students, answering questions, holding office hours and having exams. Learned a lot from the job and made some new friends. The department of Economics has some good professors and secretaries who are very helpful when you need suggestions. I like the environment and the people here at Columbia.
Adjunct Faculty (Current Employee) – Columbia, MO – July 14, 2017
As with the recent news I'm sure you've all seen... the Universities future is at stake. I went to school there, got 3 degrees, and have watched campus all but dissapate. My Department was great, as well as my Mentor was probably one of the most influential people in my life. However, there are no jobs here, and there is definitely no security. If you are seeking a position at the University, be prepared for a long contract process with a lot of uncertainty. They offered to renew my Adjunct teaching contract at a 60 % pay decrease, despite having the highest reviews in the Department.
Senior Small Animal Health Technician/Surgery (Former Employee) – Columbia, MO – June 15, 2017
University of MO-Vet Med Teaching Hospital- Small animal surgery. Fantastic staff and faculty. Often overworked due to lack of staff but that was fixed. Head of surgery allowed me to take the position to an entirely different level and had complete trust in my abilities.
Post-Doctoral Research Fellow (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – June 10, 2017
Good start point for a career in academia. The research organization at the university of Missouri-st Louis may be one of the most underrated. The level of instrumentation, infrastructure and people was impressive and very helpful.
