Fun and informative but stressful and inconsistent hours.
Undergraduate Sports Marketing Internship (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – January 11, 2018
Interned here for sports marketing years ago. A majority of the people that I worked with quit when a new AD was hired. Interacting with coaches and athletes was interesting as well as helping run any in-game promotions and events.
Too much work two individuals going through school at the same time
Undergraduate Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – October 19, 2017
A typical day at work involved keeping up to date on media for undergraduate microbiology laboratory sections. Reinforcement of aseptic technique learned from class sections becomes a critical exercise in an actual work atmosphere.
Program Assistant (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – October 10, 2017
On a daily basis, my duties would be consisted of data entry in relation to laserfische. Staff would gather to interact at lunch to better know understand each other. Management skills are superb. I would not consider any part of the job to be difficult. That is, we were taught something new each and every day. Though there were deadlines, we managed to work as a team to reach the goals.
Physical Education Instructor (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – August 31, 2017
lack of respect, lack of appreciation, no desire to keep those who truly make a difference, aura of apathy, HR services are not there for the employee, non-supportive of instructors...and yes I feel I could go on. Sadly, I am not the only instructor in this program that feels this way. Many of them do, which is why the program lost one it's most talented individual and the students lost an amazing instructor and I have heard that another one is thinking of leaving. One the students love dearly and talk about often.
Custodial Worker (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – August 4, 2017
You work a set schedule and are always guaranteed your 40 hours plus overtime if needed. Health benefits and 401 k is provided and you have your own assigned station which is good for being able to set goals throughout your work week. The one major downfall was my creepy shift manager. He would appear at random times and follow me around while I worked and harrass me. Other then that the job was decent.
health benefits, lunch breaks, paid time off, 401 k
Research Assistant (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – March 18, 2017
It is a good place to learn and educate. I have this opportunity to work and research there and get my master's degree. There are funding sources that you can award and become a TA on an RA to support your life.
Web Archiving Specialist (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – August 14, 2016
The desirability of working at UNLV is largely dependent on the type of position one holds. The work environment has all the plusses and minuses of a non-profit institution. Benefits are generally good.
Strength and Conditioning Intern (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – July 13, 2016
I work with two amazing strength coaches and have been learning a lot in the process. A typical day includes coaching and motivating young student athletes to be the best person they can be. I love it here.
