Full Time Student (Former Employee) – Student – May 4, 2015
I could be a scholar for the rest of my life, and UNC is a great place to learn. They challenge you every day, demand that you think and require that you give one hundred percent of yourself to your work. I will miss my time there.
Research Intern (Current Employee) – Chapel Hill, NC – January 12, 2015
A typical day was mostly spent on research, but departmental and lab meetings and seminars were very frequent. It is a great way to meet with colleagues while learning about cutting edge research. My co-workers were without exception some of the friendliest people I've encountered. As a researcher I was given relative freedom in my hours while still being expected to get a lot done.
diverse lunch options nearby and many meetings, seminars, and events to attend.
Easy going and fun workplace inside the Bowman Grey Pool on UNC campus.
PADI SCUBA Instructor (Current Employee) – Chapel Hill, NC – January 7, 2015
A typical day at work for this job begins with a collaborative planning session with two other professional SCUBA instructors. We then get our equipment together and put it by poolside. The students come in and gather their equipment with our assistance and put things together for the water instruction. We then all enter the pool and proceed with SCUBA instruction for about an hour. We begin at 3:30 and have 3 different sections (class periods) every Tuesday. We teach the sections back to back ending at 8:00 pm. I really enjoy working with college students. They are optimistic and fun to teach and talk with. The hardest part of the job is getting cold from being in the water for such a long time. The very best part of the job is traveling with the students to Key Largo, Florida for open water training at the end of each semester.
Very rewarding, but tough to see a long-term career here
Program Advisor (Current Employee) – Chapel Hill, NC – April 8, 2014
My job at Carolina is incredibly rewarding. I've learned an incredible amount, developed great skills, and had the privilege to work with wonderful students for many years. Due to low salaries which are disparate across departments (and not many opportunities to move up), it's hard to see making this a long term situation.
Interviewer, CSRL, Department of Biostatistics (Former Employee) – Chapel Hill, NC – March 13, 2014
I enjoyed the short period of time i did work there. It was for a call center. You have to have good communication skills as well as multitasking skills. It was at night time and worked well with my schedule.
