Security Guard (Current Employee), New Haven, CTNovember 4, 2012
Pros: great benfits
As the security officer, my responsibilities included CCTV monitoring, making presence known to deter any suspicious patron/behavior, and/or patrolling buildings and street areas. I have learned so far how to adapt with university environment and always customer service. My supervisors also rely on my ability to communicate well with irate employees/guests, – more... arrive to work on time in professional uniform, and to be alert at all times. Co-workers are amazing hard working people who come together like family to make the hard times easier and the good times even better. The hardest part of the job is being outside during bad weather and the most enjoyable part of the job is communicating with people who come from all over the world and being able to full-fill their needs when needed. – less

Yale New Haven Hospital
Operations Supervisor (Former Employee), New Haven, CTOctober 19, 2012
Pros: large institution with plenty of movement available.
Cons: hypocritical environment, the upper management does not care about its people even through they say they do.
Hypocritical environment. Of course they tout YNHH as the employer of choice but the truth is the work environment is not that great and the benefits are on average less than I have received at other employers.

Test Proctor (Current Employee), New Haven, CTOctober 10, 2012
My job in general is a great position to have. I check in individuals who are there for testing, seat them accordingly, hand out the test booklwts and answer key, read the instructions and allow for breaks if necessary. Most importantly, I make sure everyones eyes stay on their own paper. My co workers are all very nice and helpful. The most enjoyable – more... part of the job is that I am allowed to bring homework to work on while the individuals are testing. – less
