A wonderful enviornment.
Student Assistant (Former Employee) –  Grand Junction, COJanuary 29, 2019
A typical work day is 8 to 5 with an hour lunch. I learned a lot about the education system in Colorado. Management is very caring and understanding. I would recommend this place to anyone, because it is a wonderful place to work.

Not employee-centric
Middle Manager (Former Employee) –  Grand Junction, CODecember 11, 2018
CMU’s current emphasis is on growing enrollment and becoming the center of the Mesa County community. Strategic initiatives focus on outward growth with little attention to improving job satisfaction, providing relevant professional development, or generally supporting—or even acknowledging—the staff who keep the university going. One giant lack is the inability to assess supervisors, which has created an environment of ineffectual, fear-based, self-serving management that puts staff at the mercy of uneducated and abusive “leaders.” As one of the largest employers in the region, CMU needs to come clean about its neglect, and step up its responsibility to its employees.
Pros
Salary
Cons
Disrespectful of employees

needs better management
Custodian I (Former Employee) –  Grand Junction, CONovember 20, 2018
I know more about management than our manager and she does not want to learn or surround herself with people that could speak to her weaknesses.

In experiences and do not have the education nor the ability to confront issues head on.
Pros
free parking
Cons
The job itself is not the problem, the problem is management, cannot react to problems timely and are a re-active department rather than pro-active.

Great way to make money during school

It was an awesome opportunity to get some extra money while still being a full time student athlete. The University allowed me to create my own space and manage my time appropriately.

Great Experience
Research Assistant (Current Employee) –  Grand Junction, COAugust 22, 2018
Working as a research assistant was a super awesome experience. We would mobilize way out into the mountains to collect field data to quantify the stream flow at various times of the year. It was great to see what and how various methods were used to collect data and to be hands on with the equipment. Also, it was great being able to get outdoors with some fantastic people.

Pros
great insurance packages

Productive workplace with great coworkers
Parking Services Info Desk Attendant (Former Employee) –  Grand Junction, COMay 31, 2018
This position was relaxed, fun, interesting, and provided experience in customer services, satisfaction, and office management. The department was very flexible with class hours and worked around your schedule. With working the front desk, this position allowed for students to work on homework when they weren't dealing with a customer.
Pros
Excellent coworkers and relaxed environment

Easy and Safe
JANITOR (Former Employee) –  Mesa, COMay 22, 2018
The custodial job at Colorado Mesa University was easy and fun. The pay is minimum wage, but the work done there is slow and simple. The only problem was the odd hours a custodian works, due to activity by the students during the day.

It was mostly a good place to work, but adjuncts were treated poorly by full time faculty. The other part time instructors, and support staff were extremely friendly and helpful.

Student job!
Office Assistant (Former Employee) –  Grand Junction, COApril 19, 2018
If you're a college student and need work at the college. Great place to learn new things. Depends on the job you get, so you can work on your homework as well.

The typical workday is mostly helping students, answering phone calls, and taking appointments. It also falls on you to look at your schedule and make sure you can work those hours without anything interfering with any of your classes.

It really all depends on the job you get because all the jobs for students at Colorado Mesa University are different.

Internship (Former Employee) –  Mesa, COApril 12, 2018
This was an internship for college credit and I really didn't have that much to do. Sometimes there would be something to do like help out in events or assist other classes with technical questions.The most enjoyable thing is all the free over see the late night facilities, plenty of time to work on school work.

Broadcast Crew Leader (Former Employee) –  Mesa, COApril 10, 2018
I would help set up the equipment needed in order to film different sporting events. It was an easy and relatively stress-free environment. It was also a great job for someone who is a big fan of sports.
