Typical State run facility, cubicles, lots of paper, and hallways
Program Assistant (Current Employee), Salt Lake CityMarch 31, 2015
Pros: benefits, UTA Pass, Half off tuition
Cons: Pretty much everything in the department
Very poor on boarding process. No real training or employee development. All work is off the cuff type activities. No true defined role. Management doesn't respect each individual. The culture is very set in their ways, and many people are in retirement mode, yet they don't retire.

The most difficult part of this position is the people. Everyone is out for themselves and have no desire for employee development or advancement. The tasks are so back and forth that efficiency is lost.

Management belittles the employees and asks odd things of their employees. Promoting from within is not frequent. Pay is severely handicapped by the excuse of "great benefits".

Hardly any employee recognition. Communication is infrequent and the teams have a "I don't care, I'm a State Worker" attitude.

Charge Nurse Surgical Unit (Former Employee), Salt Lake City, UTMarch 30, 2015
Pros: good team workers
Cons: night work
The UofU Hospital has probably been the best place I have worked. The staff went out of their way to make me feel welcome. I was a new RN and they were so willing to show me the ropes, to give me many opportunities to learn. I was given responsibility as a charge nurse quickly and I appreciated their confidence in me letting me do this position early in my time there. I learned much while I was there. Great to work in a university hospital

Job is very secure, but hard to advance and to be recognized.
Grant and Contract Officer/Accountant (Current Employee), Salt Lake City, UTMarch 27, 2015
Pros: Job security, work-life balance
Cons: raises are awful, management forgets about employees
The UofU is great if you are working at a job for security and have no ambition to move up. Employees are forgotten by upper management. I had two one on one's with my boss in the 6 years that I had worked here. I am the type that goes above and beyond what I am supposed to do and was never recognized.

Centerville Pharmacy
Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee), Centerville, UTFebruary 11, 2015
I love being able to work with the patients.

I enjoy the challenge of multitasking, between patient care and pharmacy management.

I learned many management skills such as cash management (billing and payments), inventory management (we changed the inventory control system twice), filing documents for PO numbers and prescriptions, disposing expired and recalled items.

I enjoyed problem solving and seeing that solution better the pharmacy, workflow, and overall patient care.

Create grading rubrics and assess essay quizzes accordingly.
Teachers Assistant (Former Employee), Salt Lake City, UTJanuary 4, 2015
Pros: challenging occupation, diverse material, highly intelligent superior.
Cons: the intensity increased at the same time that the intensity increased in my other classes.
This responsibility entailed part-time work, the intensity of which increased at different times throughout the semester. If I were to work hard and grade quickly then I could have a great deal of time for my personal work or leisure.
At this job, I learned that grading essays is not easy! I became much more fluent in my critical-thinking skills as a result of this opportunity.
I am close with the Professor that I worked under; we have been friends ever since I had taken his class the semester before. He is a bright man with good intentions. I would enjoy working with him again.
The hardest part of the job was assessing quizzes with the goal of helping students learn the material. Many of the questions were worded oddly, so I often awarded credit on account of logical consistency and creativity rather than the the proposed rubric.
The most enjoyable part of the job was gaining more familiarity with the great scope of material that was covered the semester before in class.
