Nutrition Educator (Former Employee) – Weber County – August 13, 2016
I worked as a nutrition educator for the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program. The job provided great experience in teaching nutrition lessons to lower income clients and expanded my knowledge of the various government assistance programs available. The most difficult part of the job was recruiting clients and keeping track of all of the paperwork required. Additionally, there was little support from the supervisor. The pay doesn't match the work required, so there is a lot of turnover.
Speech Language Pathologist (Former Employee) – Logan, UT 84322 – September 14, 2016
Loved working with families but no support from supervisors. No appreciation for long hours. Beware the politics. No one has your back!
Working with families.
No support, requires you to work long hours, unwilling to help. Lots of politics and favoritism! Watch your back, there is nowhere to go for help if you have a negative situation, very stressful! Long hours!
Electrician/Safety Coordinator (Former Employee) – Logan, UT – August 17, 2016
If you just want to be a robot, this job is for you. Nobody cares about efficiency, cost savings, usu is stuck in its oldtime ways and the ones running the shops (forman) dont give a darn about anything that changes their status, especially if it is logical and effective.
Im sure there are somewhere
Archaic system, nothing is efficient and NOBODY cares.
Project Manager (Current Employee) – Logan, UT – April 14, 2016
USU has been a good employer that is exactly what you'd expect it to be. It is low stress and moderate to low workloads. There are opportunities to continue your education and most supervisors are willing to accommodate anything. The departments that I am familiar with do not provide many opportunities for pay advancement. There is also some difficulty in proposing new ideas/methods where many colleagues have been working at the university for a long time without much change.
Researcher (Current Employee) – Logan, UT – April 12, 2016
Insufficient Pay! Bad management. Employee pays all travel expenses and is reimbursed later. Try doing this when your personal budget is stretched thin by the low pay! Unprofessional attitude. Plagiarism in research publications is practiced at USU, or at least by some professors.
There are many nice people that work at USU. You can learn some marketable skills to use elsewhere!
CMS Programmer (Current Employee) – Logan, UT – September 25, 2016
I really enjoy working for Utah State University. Working for the Web Development team has been a great learning experience. I can honestly say that I have become great friends with many of my coworkers.
Staff Assistant II (Former Employee) – Logan, UT – February 25, 2016
One of the best places I have ever had opportunity to work. Beautiful campus, friendly, respectful, polite people.
I enjoyed very much working with and for students, having opportunity to gain new skills (web administrator, payroll, administrative advisor). Colleagues were helpful and I made a lot of friends over there.
Campus location one of the most beautiful in this country.
Loved working with the children and sharing my passion for nutrition
EFNEP Nutrition Assistant & Teacher (Former Employee) – Farmington, UT – January 10, 2016
I taught nutrition classes in the public schools through a non profit program through Utah state. It was challenging to keep the kids focused so I developed visual teaching aids that were interactive. I loved the continuing education and monthly meetings working with the other EFNEP employees. It was challenging to remember to calculate my mileage, so I decided to start taking pictures of mileage with my phone so I would remember to document it when I got home and had more accurate records.
Great schedule, very felxible
too many hours for a part time job while I was working 40 hours already
Intern (Former Employee) – Logan, UT – March 23, 2016
