Job Work/Life Balance
Fun place to work, good benefits, no growth.
Teaching assistant. (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – July 1, 2015
As a teaching assistant (TA) at UWM I had a great experience. Most of my students were dedicated and hard working. Also not all students were your typical person out of high school, a lot of them were "older" students that worked full time. Unfortunately as much as I liked working there, there was no room for growth. It's the nature of being a TA. Excellent health insurance.
Salary is low compared to other universities in the US.
Structured atmosphere that also let me be creative.
UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAM COORDINATOR THE HUB (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – March 26, 2015
Typical day at work is teaching a couple group exercise classes, working on registrations for new classes, and completing other administrative work. Also, putting together projects such as Back Care Basics workshop and helping with the behavior change program Find Your Fit.
Learn a wide variety of job tasks and met a lot of people.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – October 7, 2013
UWM is a great place to work. The bureaucracy can sometimes be tedious, but the goal is a noble one. I find that helping students achieve their education dreams is extremely rewarding, and most everyone I work with has the same enthusiasm for the betterment of our community.
Media Center Technician (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – August 20, 2012
The day went as followed, people may or may not have stopped in for things to be faxed, copied, or e-mailed. And, while keeping track of these various jobs others would also stop in to use the facilities to take pictures of architectural models. So, I had to explain how to use the cameras, set up lighting, and so forth. But, to explain how to use it, I had to know how to use it. My first job from my boss was to play with everything.
