Great academic and multicultural atmosphere
Academic Services Administrator (Current Employee), TampaMay 21, 2014
Pros: benefits - sick leave and annual leave, retirement, and healthcare
Cons: compartmentalized with few advancement opportunities outside of a transfer
Always a dynamic atmosphere, the University of South Florida is a globally engaged public research university. Divided into branching levels of reporting and responsibility, communication between units can be slow, with multiple people doing the same work, but student success remains the number one focus. My position is responsible for data collection, – more... entry, and management, requiring a prolonged attention to detail, a keen ability to focus, a broad knowledge of research skills/application, and reporting skills. Work must be self-directed and the ability to work and track multiple projects simultaneously is key. – less

Barista (Current Employee), Tampa, FLMay 10, 2014
A typical day at work is very fast paced. As, a Barista you have to be welcoming to the customers and be able to keep up. I have learning that it is not the most organized system, as in scheduling their Barista. I'm use to a week in advance scheduling and the management sometime lack customer service. In any environment they are co-workers who are not – more... pulling their weight and this is no exception. The hardest part of the job is that you have to seperate your school work from your job. The customers make my job enjoyable at the end of the day. – less

Custodian (Current Employee), Tampa, FLMay 4, 2014
Pros: hour lunch breaks, fairly easy
Cons: no benefits, no flexibility for temps
As a temporary employee, there are not many benefits. However, I have learned much about customer service and the affect of employees who work diligently.
Management is firm. Work schedule is not very flexible and makes it difficult to balance life (such as school, health, etc.).
There is entirely too much gossip and drama among coworkers which adds – more... to the stress of the job.
The job is fairly easy. – less

Mail Desk Worker (Current Employee), Tampa, FLApril 8, 2014
The job included sorting mail and placing it into the correct locations for the recipients. Also sorting, logging and labeling packages to facilitate their pick up. The mail rooms are split up around the campus so normally I would only work with a partner. This was a good experience because it would allow me to work on my partnership skills. My supervisors – more... were always very helpful and informative and were prompt to answer any questions or help me with any issues that would arise. Overall the job was relaxing and enjoyable. If the work was completed early, there was time to relax and slow the pace down. – less

Research the culture at USF before accepting a position there. They do great research there, but the culture was not a good fit in my department. Great co-workers and facilities, but I would not return to employment at USF.
