Great place to work and impact kids lives, hard place to make a living.
Head Wrestling Coach (Current Employee) – Greeley, CO – September 24, 2013
There is no such thing as a typical day as a college coach. When dealing with 30 kids, you are constantly faced with daily challenges, disappointments, victories, and battles. You have to be a problem solver, a great communicator, a mentor, and a bad guy on occasion. On top of dealing with the kids and figuring out how to make them successful, you are dealing with a less than appropriate budget in which you are expected to build a successful program with.
Through this job I have learned how to manage people, how to communicate effectively, and how to make things work even under the most difficult of circumstances. Because of budget short falls, I have often times had to be creative and have an I'm going to get it done anyhow attitude. This has helped me build a team with a great group of kids as well as develop a great culture.
The hardest part of this job is not taking all the setbacks, losses, and challenges personally. There are a lot of variables out of your control in a position like this, you have to realize that and do your best to minimize your reaction to certain situations, and keep a cool head in all situations. The best part of this job is working with the kids and seeing them achieve their goals or doing something they didn't think they could do. Overall, seeing that is what makes dealing with all the other stuff (the NCAA, administration, conduct issues, lack of funds, angry alumni, parents, etc...) worth it.
Freedom to build own schedule, great benefits, working with kids.
hours worked during season, salary, having yuor livleyhood resting on the shoulders of thirty 18-24 year olds.
DS3 Lead cook (Current Employee) – Greeley, Co TK dinning hall – January 20, 2017
Creating any positive form of teamwork is impossible to due to the inability to make any sort of change. Consistently understaffed and under paid. Performing above and beyond your duties accomplishes little but a larger work load for yourself. Subordinates have more power and rights than management. Eliminating a poor employee requires extensive documentation of their inability and contempt to preform their job.( an individual could miss upwards of two weeks without notification before management could even begin the process of terminating them.) Not worth the headaches.
free lunch, affordable Health care, free tuition for dependants
Supervisor, Student Manager,Trainer (Former Employee) – Greeley, CO – January 12, 2017
Every day I would open and close the food court. I would make sure that all employees would follow healthy and safe working procedures. I would as well make sure that all schedules would work with the classes that each employee had.
ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Greeley, CO – June 23, 2016
I've grown so much from working here and wish that I didn't have to leave. However, my family is moving out of state and so will I. I've learned a lot and got to meet a lot of people from different walks of life. Everyday was different nothing was ever dull.
Valuable work experience and learned useful skills.
Dining Services (Former Employee) – Greeley, CO – May 11, 2016
This job hand many benefits and I enjoyed working with the people. A typical day would last about ten hours and I would work with a variety of recipes and food products. The most enjoyable part of my job was learning new skills that helped me be more efficient in the kitchen.
Adjunct English Faculty (Current Employee) – Greeley, CO – November 30, 2015
It's a pretty typical university environment. I found the office staff supportive and the management aloof. The student body are diverse in that some are highly motivated and some are not. That being said, I find a higher number of students who try to excel than students who do not care.
Human Resources Assistant (Former Employee) – Greeley, CO – December 3, 2015
This was a work study opportunity and was a good job until I got established as a resident in Greeley and was able to find another job while attending school. The office team is great and was conducive to learning office skills.
Reisher Family Scholarship Peer Advocate (Current Employee) – Greeley, CO – May 10, 2015
I worked at UNC Financial Aid Office as the Student Advocate for Reisher Family Scholarship. From the very first day, I was welcomed with open arms. Unlike many office based work areas, the Financial had little to no gossip circulating and people were very comfortable talking to each other. I would love to have worked here longer, but I am finishing my degree in the summer, so I will no longer be able to work there.
Office Assistant at the Recreation Center (Former Employee) – Greeley, CO – January 21, 2015
Work was so incredible from the people and management to the type of skills we gained. There was no hard part because I had an amazing team behind me that would help every time I made a mistake and made sure I knew that even the bosses make mistakes. My most enjoyable part was everything. Everybody was so helpful and optimistic all the time and it was so nice to be around.
Medical Assistant Extern (Former Employee) – Greeley, CO – September 14, 2014

Only Aviable to University Students in the Chemistry Department
Senior Student Researcher (Former Employee) – Greeley, CO – May 21, 2012
This is a great opportunity for students in the chemistry fields to gain research experience. Each year/semester there are new projects that are avaible. Not all projects are the same nor are they always avaible for multiple years. (You are partnered under a proffessor's research project that they are conducting) Duties are different for each student but all will have to present their research projects at the end on a poster.
UNC provided a great education in chemistry. The school is large enough to afford expensive scientific equipment and highly skilled professors who know how to use it, but yet it had small enough class sizes in chemistry that you could get to know your professors. For graduate level classes a class size would be around seven students to one PhD professor.
Great part time job training athletes during college
Asst. Strength and Conditioning Coach (Former Employee) – Greeley, CO – November 13, 2012
My typical day as an assistant weightlifting coach involved writing workout programs, teaching correct lifting techniques, encouraging athletes to strive peak performance, and ensuring safety throughout workouts.
I learned weightlifting safety and techniques, how to prescribe workouts for specific athletes, and motivational skills.
Management was supportive and encouraging, as were my co-workers.
The hardest part of my job was teaching athletes to break bad ligting habits.
The most enjoyable part of my job was teaching an athlete correct form/technique and watching them implement it with success.
good working hours, great experience coaching/teaching, working with other to achieve their goals
