Non-Exempt Employee (Current Employee) – Dover, DE 19901 – August 8, 2018
The organization does not value its employees or students. Many offices work in silos and lack collaboration. Faculty, secretarial staff, and custodial staff are unionized. Professional employees are At-Will and are frequently abused by their managers due to this status. The office of human resources does little to remedy areas that have low retention rates for staff and needs to conduct leadership training for its leadership. Students do not have adequate housing and their concerns are unheard by administration. Many of the courses students need are often unavailable during registration periods.

Testing Specialist (Former Employee) – Dover, DE – September 4, 2018
Management talks about staff with no regards for being decent at times. No regard for personal life and very stringent. Very boring place to work. If you want to just sit around and have bad talked about you with no benefits this is the place for you. No benefits for part time workers but you are expected to work full time hours and work outside of your schedule with no questions asked.
working on a campus
poor management, no benefits for part time employees however you are still expected to work over 40 hours a week.
Event Supervisor (Former Employee) – Dover, DE – November 7, 2018
I was a student worker at Delaware State University for 3 years. There was no typical work day, because almost every day was different in regards to the issues and concerns we had to deal with. Overall management was okay. The chain of command wasn't always followed properly, but management did try its best to be efficient and effective communicators with its workers. I learned a lot working at Delaware State: soft skills, communications skills, and even life lessons. The job really acted as a stepping stone into what a normal job life would be outside the university. The hardest part of the job was handling conflict. My job required workers to have a calm temperament when dealing with distressed clients.

Typical day at work is filled with excitement and there is something new everyday. I learned how to be organized and manage individuals. Management were nice and helpful. The workplace culture was awesome. The hardest part of the job was actually being comfortable telling kids I see everyday what to do. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing new things everyday.
Head Women's Basketball Coach (Former Employee) – Dover, DE – March 1, 2018
Typical work day was watching film, planning for practices or games along with handling administrative duties. I managed all aspects of the program including, staff, players, academics as well as the budget. What I learned most was how this generation has changed and how to relate to them to help them be more successful. The hardest part of the job was dealing with a limited budget and changing the culture to having a winning spirit. The most enjoyable part of the job was going everyday and watching the team grow and mature as student-athletes.

The staff are generally friendly and easy to work with which makes for generally smooth work days. However, open, effective communication tends to be a weak point of the workplace culture, which can lead to many stressful and complicated situations.
friendly staff, decent management, campus easy to navigate
lack of communication, piling on additional work, student behavior
