Program Director (Current Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – April 14, 2017
It is a wonderful place to work. The pay is far below average, but it is a small and progressive public university with excellent leadership. I would recommend this university for any educator who wants a stable and supportive environment.
Through the few jobs that I have had, I've been privileged enough to meet and work with all different types of people. I value customer satisfaction, team work, and innovation the most. When I have goal, I will reach it. I'm very ambitious and can't wait to get the opportunity to start my business career.
Great working environment with an Administrative staff that really cares and understands the needs of the employees. I really enjoyed the flexibility of the work schedule and the encouragement to take advantage of the education opportunities available.
the employee tuition assistance program is awesome

Coordinator (Current Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – March 27, 2017
4 years ago, UNF would have gotten a 5 star rating. However, new leadership in Enrollment Services caused over 45% of the staff to be fired or quit. Stay away from Enrollment Services. Other departments/divisions may not have the same issues.
low pay, poor communication, few promotion opportunities, terrible leadership!
Work environment felt welcoming with different activities which a typical work day exciting. On the job, I learnt great management skills, I led groups in order to carry out projects as expected. Hardest part was trying to get every member of the team on one page, but the most enjoyable part is the feeling after total completion of the project given to you.
Educated BSN nursing students and oriented to first clinical setting. Staff at UNF great/helpful. Teaching isn't for everyone and it wasn't for me. Students were adults who acted like children- wasn't for me.
unique experience, teaching
patience with students who are demanding and childish at times
Art Gallery Assistant (Former Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – February 28, 2017
Working in UNF's student art gallery was the most relaxing job I have ever had. We cataloged donated art to the University's collection, curated art shows, and my personal favorite was opening night of art shows held on campus. The art gallery is always peaceful and quite and I could complete homework after my daily tasks were done.
I wish I started working in the Art Gallery sooner!
quiet, stress free, relaxing
Having to lock the doors if you needed to use the restroom
Adjunct Professor (Current Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – February 14, 2017
This is a great opportunity to share real life experiences with my students to augment the information that is available in the text. Departmental leadership is strongly supportive of my efforts and continues to ask me back each semester! My end of course grades from the students has been 3.86 on a 4.0 scale - with specific mention of my ability to bring my years of experience and share my many elucidative stories. Nothing but fun here. Truly enjoy learning how millennials think!
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Physical facilities /custodial department blgd 6 – January 10, 2017
Custodial department is horrible management is unfair from top to bottom in building 6 they are very unprofessional and mistreat the workers and manipulate them because most don't understand English and not comprehend what is being said to them they have one person do the work of three people and have the workers scared to say anything the cheat them out of their overtime week in week out it need to be a major investigation done the in that department don't get caught in this trap if you will step up and speak for yourself
This environment is full of students and staff who all share common interests and encounter the same day to day lifestyle as you do. The benefits of being employed by the University are several and a job here is well worth it.
An ideal day at work would definitely have to be productive and a lil bit fun, maybe table tenis on lunch breaks. Solving issues, fulfilling tasks and learning new skills are amongst few things that motivate me at work
Graduate Research Assistant (Current Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – October 31, 2016
As a research assistant I have to work for 4hours per day. It is good and enough as it gives me an ample times for attending class. The job a little bit challenge as everything is new to me but from it I learned how important it is to work in team. The good part about it is my colleagues who are so cooperative in such a way I can't feel the burden ahead of me when I'm about to go for new research or sit for test.
