Student Assistant (Former Employee), Jacksonville, FL – May 12, 2014
Learned many office clerical environment skills. Typical day at work was just like any other day in college, you never know who would walk in with what interesting story or lesson to learn. My office manager was very patient and helpful always willing to give advice for my future. Co-workers were other university students and professors. Hardest part – more... of the job is when the student assistants were on their own while the office manager was out or the department chair would be out of the office. Most enjoyable part of the job would be the people I worked with and the projects we worked on. – less
Coordinator, Research Development (Former Employee), Jacksonville, FL – March 22, 2014
Pros: great insurance, relaxed atmosphere, no problem getting time off if needed
Cons: low pay, no room for advancement, poor parking
I worked at UNF for 11 years. In that time, we rarely received raises but the cost of parking and insurance kept going up. The president is not an academic and that affects how UNF is viewed outside of Florida. The staff is 98% great with the students' welfare in mind, but management tends to be bad. I had to work long hours with no extra pay and finally – more... had to quit when I got a boss who insisted on calling me late at night (after 10 pm) with work questions. – less
International Student Program Recruiter (Current Employee), International Center – March 5, 2014
Working at UNF provides some incredible opportunities for you as an employee. However, it is an ever changing landscape and every department is different. Some departments are more focused on work, life, balance than others. My review is reflective of my current office.
Usher (Former Employee), Jacksonville – February 14, 2014
Been at the job since May 2013, and to be honest, there are some bright sides to the job. For instance, the selection of shift, work/school balance, and the $9/hr pay is solid, if you are seeking opportunity. However, the negative things that stem from the people that work there are the managers that have no order with the vendors, the patrons in the – more... theatre, and no communication skills with their employees. They rarely give you a phone call in regards to attending a shift or have to call out due to personal matters-they prefer it via e-mail. Always understaffed because there is truly no control in management because there are times when the employees, themselves, don`t know who is truly under control. And what makes it so sad is that I got fired days ago for incidents that took place months ago that should`ve been handled months ago. In closing, for those attempting to pursue this job, apply with CAUTION. Incompetence will be derived in the workplace, but as long as you have good associates to converse with, you will ve fine.
Cons: no opportunity for growth, low financial compensation, lack of communication
My place of work has great potential in being a powerful force in higher education. The faculty are knowledgeable and the opportunity for students and research are endless. I work a typical 8-5 pm with the opportunity to work a flex schedule if i need to. I feel as if i make a difference in my position. My supervisors are caring and understanding as – more... it pertains to life events and personal time. My co workers are willing to help out when needed for the greater good. The hardest part of the job is not being able to assist students more or getting them to truly take your advice as it pertains to their future. The most enjoyable part of the job is talking to students – less

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Jacksonville, FL – December 4, 2013
Pros: helping students with the scholarships we gave
Cons: not being more engaged with people
A day at the office in the financial aid and scholarship department was an enjoyable experience. When I arrived, I checked and responded to all messages and inquiries, mailed all recruitment paperwork, input sensitive information into the database, filing, made PowerPoint presentations for any luncheons and meetings, and assisted my director with any – more... additional duties. I learned how to handle sensitive information, how the scholarship and financial aid offices work, and gained computer skills. My manager was nice and we never had any issues. I mainly worked by myself in my office, so I did not interact with most of the people in the other offices. from the ones I did encounter they were nice. The hardest part of this job was learning all the codes for the computer system, which was not hard at all. I really enjoyed everything about what I did there. – less
Office Manager (Current Employee), Jacksonville, FL – October 28, 2013
Pros: free lunches, public relations on all age levels and get a fitness workout.
Cons: salary is low compared the job title and duties.
I am the "go-to" girl. There is no typical day as anything can come up and I would have to be the one to help the situation. Whether it is based on an unsatisfied customer to a facility operations not functioning well, I would be the main person of contact and get the right people to do the job or if I can fix it, I would too.
The job is demanding – more... and very multitasking but, I prefer to keep busy as it makes the day go faster.
I am diligent with my job and very responsible so, my co-workers depend on me for support. – less
