Interacting with people with different cultural backgrounds
Student dining staff (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – June 27, 2017
It is a good opportunity for me to step out of the school and be socialized. It is not only about managing skills as a server, but also how to interact with co-workers and customers who have different cultural backgrounds. I am getting to know more how to respect others and appropriately interact with them.
Grader (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – June 26, 2017
Grade student papers as needed. Deadline is definite, but timing is flexible. Depending on professor, some may involve him/herself more than others. To avoid personal biases among graders, best coordinate to agree on a common metric and avg. score.
Research Engineer 3 (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – June 25, 2017
Worked for College of Engineering. Management is clueless in how to deal with people but not unexpected as they have no management training other than ordering grad students to do what they say. No reason to make suggestions to improve processes as you know nothing because you are intellectually so far beneath them. Experience means nothing in comparison to a degree. Engineering HR manager ignores problems unless they will cause legal issues for the university. Coworkers are miserable and difficult to be around. Backstabbing and lying is pervasive. Career advancement is non-existent. The few good people left for better jobs so it's now just the incompetent and chair warmers building up their 401k. Pay is well below market rate and makes it difficult to live in the area. Avoid working with them unless you are totally desperate. The deans really don't care so don't expect anything to ever change.
Adjunct Professor (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – June 17, 2017
As an adjunct, compensation is not great as you ended up spending lots and lots of extra hours outside of actual teaching hours. Students in the evening classes I taught were mediocre. It was disappointing that some of the graduate students couldn't write a paper with correct grammar. I questioned admission criteria and policy to the management and was not taken very seriously.
Beautiful campus; convenient location
quality of some students, lack of support from the managers
Assistant Coach (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – June 4, 2017
Athletic administration is phenomenal and leads with class and integrity. Beautiful surroundings and ample resources. There are major issues with personnel within certain departments but the overall campus climate and culture is incredible. Supportive and aggressive, those in leadership there have earned their success.
Good place to work for if they loss the buddy system
Unit Supply Tech II (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – June 2, 2017

Research Study Assistant (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – May 29, 2017
Culture is poor. Typical office job. As an entry-level employee, it seems that there is not a lot of room for advancement or career progression. I believe this may have been a department issue rather than a university issue.
Research Assistant/Lab Manager (Current Employee) – Tacoma, WA – May 29, 2017
Excellent job to have while a student through the university. Great work environment, especially if you are one who enjoys engaging with people. A normal day is to set up tables and chairs for different events and also monitor different equipment that is checked out by the students.
