Very difficult atmosphere for talented outsiders (those coming from outside of the university)
Director (Current Employee) – Redlands, CA – July 1, 2014
Very poor human resources and management training. Not in compliance with HR laws/best practices. Still use paper and hard files for documentation.
Do not reward high performers.
High level of inbreeding: only truly accept employees that are UoR grads.
University will never leave the era of the1950s. Char Burgess remains a old dinosaur who never retires--the University will never reach a greater height because leadership will not embrace necessary change.
Student body continues to decline. Students will be accepted on the basis of the amount of tuition that they are able to pay. This encourages all under-performers from wealthy families to attend.
Assistant Director/Teacher (Former Employee) – Redlands, CA – August 25, 2015
I enjoyed working for the Spanish Department. More than working it was a way of learning and gaining experience. The environment was very familiar, and everyone it is very professional. It is a high level institution where everyone behaves with high values to each other. Professionalism is one of its strengths.
Productivity, efficiency, reliable
Too much responsibility when you are student at the same time.
Johnston Center Coffee House Employee (Former Employee) – Redlands, CA – May 29, 2015
Dealing with entitled and ignorant people. Great personalities that collided with my humble attitude. After working in the Food Industry for two years, I have realized that it is not an industry that I see fit with a career that I would like to one day pursue.
Graduate Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Redlands, CA – August 25, 2015
High quality standard of inputs required to produce high standard of outputs.Work time is at your own will and timing. Good application of knowledge to industry scenarios, thereby providing insight on expectations after graduating.
ACCOUNTS PAYABLE COORDINATOR (Former Employee) – Redlands, CA – January 27, 2014
I was very busy from the minute I stepped into the office which was a great thing, however the hardest part of the job was that there were some areas of inconsistancy which was a bit frustrating with there processing procedures of accounts payable. I had learned a great deal of what it takes to work in a non-profit organization. Management claimed to be open for improvement but unfortuantely there wasn't really any openess. Co-workers were nice but not very proactive in stating improvements due to lack of positive feedback from management, somewhat depressing. The most enjoyable part of the job was problem solving and completing the process of payments to the faculty and students.
mandatory lunch breaks
work load, payment requests from faculty a bit stressful.
Adjunct College Professor (Current Employee) – Orange County and Torrance Campus – December 24, 2014
Univ of Redlands offers a basic syllabus with complete autonomy to teach the courses in a way that works best for your teaching style. They care about quality and the student's experience. They work with the teachers if there are problems and they offer a professional environment.
autonomy, faculty support, ce days for faculty
pay is a little low based on how many hours your work- no benefits
CalCPA Campus Ambassador (Former Employee) – Redlands, California – May 27, 2015
At the fitness center the typical day started with cleaning workout equipment then checking existing members in or creating new contracts for new members, at the end of each shift general pick of of free weights was completed.
Assistant Residence Hall Director/Student Conduct (Former Employee) – Redlands, CA – August 6, 2013
Each day is different, but a typical day would include multiple conduct meeting with students, formal or informal interaction with my staff and spending time mentoring students in various ways. There are many reports and administrative duties, but my focus is quality time and meaningful and intentional interaction with students in the resident hall. I thoroughly enjoy helping people and making a difference in their lives.
the university cares about their employees and their students, it is a phenomenal place to work and grow
the only con was the location, the surrounding area was not condusive to a young, active professional
Scene Shop Assistant (Former Employee) – Redlands, CA – June 7, 2012
Great and Diverse management with awesome music taste. Co-workers are all very friendly and work well together to finish the tasks at hand which range from building a picnic table to helping a new student find his/her way to stage design room.
Good surpervisor that encourage independent thinking.
School Work Grader (Former Employee) – Redlands, CA – June 24, 2013
I picked up the homework packets, and graded them. I learned responsibility, because I was required to handle private information. My supervisor was very helpful and communicative. I had no co-workers. The hardest part of the job was making sure the first homework was graded under the same expectations as the last homework. The most enjoyable part of the job was successfully grading all of the homeworks.
Administrative Assistant/Reservation Assistant (Former Employee) – Redlands, CA – July 11, 2013
Enjoyed working with many challenges that represented itself through each events planned. Keeping track of all the classrooms and facilities throughout the year was also enjoyable because it keeps you on your toes while networking.
