Usher, The Concert Hall (Current Employee) – Madison, NJ – June 19, 2018
I enjoyed working for the Concert Hall at Drew University. Not only were the hours flexible, but the workplace environment was stunning. The Concert Hall at Drew University is visually stunning and world recognizing. The management is great and it is a fun workplace.
Stunning work environment, great hours, wonderful opportunities
Administrative Assistant to Stores Clerk (Former Employee) – Madison, NJ 07940 – May 9, 2018
I loved working at Drew University. Although the pay was low, I got to attend the Shakespeare plays for free and was allowed to attend one complimentary class per semester. Beautiful atmosphere and a great place to work. Close to bus and train lines.
A typical day at work consisted of walking in to a very lively and welcoming atmosphere with a team of dedicated professionals who all cared about our environment on a personal and professional level. Team-centric atmosphere allowed for a high level of productivity, and office personnel allowed for a very enjoyable day to day experience.
Managers are in need of psychiatric evaluation.....

Aramark will shove in any warm body just to get a contract at a facility. They don't care who they get as long as they are breathing. They are all out to lunch. They yell and scream, don't care about employees, are not qualified to be in management etc. Contract facility maintenance is a scam because the university doesn't want to pay for good qualified mechanics so they hire these hooligans of the street.

A lot of the actual people I work with are great, specifically in my department. However, Administration is currently going through a total upheaval while trying to cut budgets. Aparently this means not replacing small time positions, and bringing in outsiders to leadership positions and paying them more.

Complete lack of financial oversight, managerial competence, HR department, procedural documentation or training. Employees are miserable, devastatingly underpaid even after many years, all looking for a way out. No raises for several years followed by university-wide 2% increase. Financial insolvency, risk-management red flags, constant turnover, and under-served students all ignored by desperate leadership. Hands down the worst place I have ever worked. Don't even waste your time or your skills here.
From my time there I saw many people talk behind others backs, and even heard people talk about me when they thought I couldn't hear. I had people lie both to my face and about me to others. Some people dress professionally others show up in sweats and show up late with no accountability.
Management is not connected to the workforce AT ALL. They constantly make terrible choices and act without knowing the full situation.
I wish I had more good to say, I really wanted to like working at Drew but unfortunately that just is not possible. Do yourself a favor and apply somewhere else you will be much happier.
campus is pretty
Middle school girl "gossip, backstabbing, passive aggressive" atmosphere. Management is clueless.
I like this job, I am good at it, but it does happen that I go of book with my duties. I have had to provide muscle in lifting things, dealing with disorderly patrons, and I have even had to put out fires outside the library (there is a good story behind that).
Administrative (Former Employee) – Administrative Offices – January 8, 2016
My experience with the higher administration was disappointing. No matter how hard you worked or how much time you put in it was not good enough! God forbid you make any kind of error with your work cause there are no second chances, they just make up excuses and let you go!!
Worst experience in my 20 plus years of working with administration, really poor leadership!!
