Undergraduate Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Chattanooga, TN – October 7, 2017
Great opportunity for part-time undergraduate students. UTC has great opportunities for students to expand their knowledge and learn new skills. Students are able to work and go to school with the support of many offices.
Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Chattanooga, TN – October 3, 2017
Student treatment varies depending on departments. Working in the library one is aware of the replaceable nature of the student worker, while working as a graduate research assistant, one is appreciated as an indispensable resource.
Working here was very good, just the pay was less than desirable
Advancement Assistant II (Former Employee) – Knoxville, TN – September 27, 2017
This was a nice place to work, at least in the department I worked in but a lot of other people were having trouble with their managers. I heard rumors of racism on this campus but I was treated fairly well.
Internship (Former Employee) – Knoxville, TN – September 20, 2017
I worked at 2 different Psychology labs at UTK and they were both, so different, yet equally interesting. One of my internships was actually paid for a summer and I literally had a key to the lab and was able to work whatever day and time I wanted. I was even able to bring my daughter to work with me. I found the professors, managers, employees, and other interns to be exceptional at what they did, gracious, supportive, and passionate about what the subject matter of each lab. These positions are EXTREMELY competitive, so I felt very fortunate to have worked in 2 different labs.
make your own schedule, some internships paid, supportive work environment, excellent opportunity to learn and work directly side by side w/a professor
most internships are not paid, no benefits, some only last 1 semester, no free parking / the walk to "The Hill"
Full time Student (Former Employee) – Chattanooga, TN – September 20, 2017
I fully enjoyed my learning experience at the university. My classes well organized and not too hard to grasp. I had plenty of time for study while there and I also held a full-time job while attending
Management Specialist I (Former Employee) – Knoxville, TN – September 7, 2017
With an academic setting, certain times of the year are a lot more busy with shorter deadlines, but pulling together to get tasks completed makes it doable, and a more relaxed work place and work pace the other times, balances it all, to a comfortable experience.
