Human Resources Assistant (Current Employee) – Human Resources Department – July 3, 2017
Excellent culture for higher education; private institution. The University offers great benefits. The Acting President is a professional, caring, knowledgeable man of optimal integrity. The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting and helping people. The hardest part of the job currently is being micromanaged. A typical day at work would include resolving staff and faculty issues by phone, in person or by email; preparing payroll information including tax status changes, salary changes, address changes, etc.; assisting new hires with completing paperwork; attending unemployment hearings; completing employment verifications; preparing Excel spreadsheets; compiling new hire and termination reports for management; preparing disbursement vouchers; auditing bills for benefit compensation and all other projects as assigned.
School of Arts and Sciences Computer Lab Director (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – July 12, 2017
This university is not a safe and secure working environment for anyone white. Because it is a historically black university your abilities and education mean nothing unless you're black. You can not file for vacation time without being given the run around to every department but the one you need, and complaints about student misuse of the lab environment falls on deaf ears.

Director of Purchasing (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – May 12, 2017
A typical day at work consists of prioritizing what needs to be done and accomplishing your goals that you set for the week and the day. I always try to learn as much about the job as possible and seek opinions from my colleagues. Teamwork is an important part of any job however I have no problem working alone as needed. I love customer service and interaction with external as well as internal parties.
Holidays off, good benefits and room for advancement

Great place to enhance spiritual knowledge and wonderful to assist students in their spiritual walk. Work is seasonal and not as fast past I thought it would be; however I have found a sense of peace and not carrying home extra stress.
Very Rewarding Place to Work, Work doesn't feel like Work
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – January 4, 2016
Virginia Union University is a premier Liberal Arts Institution. During my time there I was able to organize and emplement fun and innovative ways to convey the principles of success in the workforce. This is just one of the many challenges that kept me on my toes. The most rewarding thing about working at VUU is knowing that you helped young inexperienced people gain experience through internships and learn to navigate through the complexities of self-marketing and vying for gainful employment.
energetic and rewarding work environment and the best employee cafeteria food
