Working at the University of Nevada, Reno was very rewarding.
Fiscal and Personnel Officer (Former Employee), Reno, NVNovember 20, 2014
Pros: solid place to work, had good benefits, always learning something
Cons: workload
The College of Science was an exciting place to work. The college student enrollment has been increasing over the years, grant activity and research continue to expand so it was never boring working there. I would continue to work there now if I didn't reach my retirement 30 year mark for the state. My job was demanding, stressful, required many off hours to complete but I loved every moment of it. The people I supervised were wonderful to work with, we all work as a team together which made the typical work day enjoyable. I reported to the Dean, who had high expectations, but was a fair and honest man. There was no free time, the college was large with a ton of responsibilities. The hardest part of the job was finding more hours in the day and keeping up with the work. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people and being able to help out a student in need.

Great atmosphere for a hardworking Student
Student Financial Aid Customer Service (Current Employee), Reno, NVOctober 28, 2014
The financial aid office at any university is a great way to understand how money plays a role in attending school. Customer service is a huge part in this job as it requires you to confidently speak to fellow students regarding sensitive information such as grades and tuition.

There is always something to do and learn in operations. Co-workers are great, although most days you'll be working on your own thing. There are some slower days. Great for students, usually school comes first.

Facility/Animal Husbandry Technician (Former Employee), Reno, NVSeptember 15, 2014
UNR is an exciting campus to be a part of. The LAM department has it's pros and cons. I learned a lot at this job. While it can come with a lot of pressure at times, and requires a sharp eye and mind, it is mostly a professional environment. The current management has my support and I would love to work with the current Dept. head again.

Great opportunity as an undergraduate researcher
Lab Assistant (Former Employee), Reno, NVApril 15, 2014
I learned a lot at this job about polymers and magneto-rheological materials. The main area of research was a co-op effort by the chemical and mechanical engineering departments along with the medical school. It was interesting work, but a challenge to adapt to while working as an ironworker.

A great learning environment, conducive to experimentation and discovery
Assistant Researcher (Former Employee), Reno, NVMarch 5, 2014
Pros: flexible hours, welcoming research group, healthy and supportive communication, plenty of funding
Cons: unable to choose area of research.
I would come into the lab in between classes and set up and run experiments with protocols and instructions that had been given to me by my superiors at an earlier time. I would independently accomplish goals and objectives given to me. The hardest part was the inconsistency and novelty with the tasks assigned me. There was always a steep learning curve working in a research lab and I always longed for a certain consistency in my day to day work.
