Encouraged growth, diverse and active place to work. Family oriented and job serious.
Program Assistant 3 (Former Employee) – Madison, WI – September 23, 2013
Really had to multi-task. Working with so many people taught me to perform well under stress, taught me conflict resolution skills, the importance of organization. I met people from all around the world and was honored to learn about their cultures. Also, working in an academic environment gave me the advantage of education by association (many conversations and debates).
It's a college campus... need I say more!
If public transportation is not used, parking is challenging and expensive.
Platteville Student Support Services (Former Employee) – Platteville, WI – January 18, 2017
Found myself enjoying my coworkers more than my job. There is flexible scheduling, but it depends largely on where you work. I was part of dining services, and only certain areas would let you opt out of finals week. Pay is minimal, barely over minimum wage at starting (there are raises...). Didn't need an interview, just walked in and was hired.
Associate Advisor (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – July 19, 2016
Good place to work with solid benefits, but compensation and lack of advancement make it difficult to stay long term. There is little professional development money for staff. Depending on your supervisor, working remotely on occasion is nice, but not all supervisors will allow this.
Some flexibility, healthcare & retirement benefits
lack of professional development, little room for growth
University Services Associate (Current Employee) – Madison, WI – April 25, 2016
Most coworkers are very friendly and helpful and great to work with. The job duties are challenging but enjoyable. I've learned a great deal about academic administration, basic financial and business duties, and the inner workings of university functions.
Friendly atmosphere/coworkers, great benefits
Difficult job advancement, sometimes inconsistent workflow
Productive environment with co-workers always willing to help you advance
Information Security Office - Student Manager (Former Employee) – Stevens Point, WI – November 14, 2016
As a student, working at UWSP was never a chore. Co-workers were always friendly and willing to give advice whenever I needed it.
Management was pretty uniform across the I.T. Department at UWSP; I was often times assigned multiple different projects that I had almost complete autonomy to work on however I saw fit, with minimal interference.
Friendly staff and management, good opportunity for management rolls for students
Help Desk Quality Assurance Manager (Current Employee) – Madison, WI – March 6, 2016
Take a job at the DoIT Help Desk as a student and rise through the ranks early on. You get raises for learning new skills and advancing in position and you can make a positive impact on the campus while managing flexible hours
Laboratory Researcher (Former Employee) – Eau Claire, WI – August 17, 2016
This job was a great way for me to get my foot in the door as a future researcher. It tested my ability to problem solved, think outside of what is normally required of a student, and lead the way in specific aspects of my research.
I primarily was responsible for fine-tuning the variables of a particular procedure so that it could later be applied directly to the new one we were developing.
My adviser was seldom there, but he was around if we ever had pressing questions. My researching peers were new to the project, but fast enough learners to move forward.
I have worked on the campus in different positions as a student worker over the past four years and loved every minute. The campus is an easy place to work for. The department that I work for currently is very laid back. It is easy to get along with all of my co-workers. I have learned so much from everyone that I work for. It is a constant learning environment.
Veterinary Assistant (Current Employee) – Large Animal Teaching Hospital – March 30, 2016
The scheduling is sometimes messy, but pretty good for how variable the work-load is. It pays poorly for how much work it is, but is a very desirable position. The potential for advancement is pretty high, as the more experience one gains, the more jobs become available (to a certain point).
Tutor/Teacher Assistant (Former Employee) – Whitewater, WI – August 9, 2016
I was required to tutor for a class size of about 30 (only a few showed up at a time) for about 5 hours a week. It was challenging and it kept my physics knowledge sharp.
In addition, I spent a lot of time setting up physics labs and helping conduct demos.
I would highly recommend tutoring and T.A. for anyone wanting to stay sharp and continue learning. In addition, it's incredibly rewarding to teach people who really want to learn the material and help them understand.
Network Engineer (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – September 22, 2016
Joy Global Inc. had its beginnings in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. At the time, Milwaukee was a center of industrial machinery manufacturing at the convergence of three rivers entering Lake Michigan. Among the growing number of machinery manufacturing firms in Milwaukee in the 1870s was a struggling firm known as the Whitehill Sewing Machine Company.
