Not enough work to do

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
This job was unsatisfactory for me because there was not a lot of work to do on a daily basis. I spent many days sitting at my desk with no work. It makes for a long day.

Pros

Good pay

Cons

Boring job

Interesting work

I worked part-time in the Social Sciences Department on a project for the Moral AI team. It was a little chaotic, with projects getting introduced and dropped all the time, but it was a fun place to work and everyone I worked with was super brilliant and cool.

Amazing experience

First, your experience totally depends on the professor or the course/department under which you're TA'ing but in all cases it would be a great learning curve. The salaries are competitive, and administration takes good care of the TA's. There are although some perks like free printing and other events but not a whole lot of them. Overall a comfortable and enjoyable side hustle.

Love my department

I have been at Duke for 8 years. I love my department and my supervisor. The job is challenging which I love and I have the perfect work life balance. I am in a hybrid position and I love working from home. I also enjoy coming in the office some days to interact with adults!

decent benefits, cheap labor

We're cheap labor here. We run a lot of experiments and are not well compensated. They tell you that you're valuable but then they don't really act that way.

What is the best part of working at the company?The respect of the people that I have worked with when i was an employee. But I don't like the disrespect of my black brothers and sisters who don't know me but are very judgmental and don't follow through and do what they are supposed to do for me as a patient now. There customer service is not good at all. In person and over the phone.What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Seeing your family member coming in client and trying to help them.

Pharmacy technician patient assistance

It's ok. The supervisor isn't to great and starts drama. The pay isn't that great for the work load that is required. You tell the manager about the supervisor and nothing is done. I wish that something would be done because it wouldn't be such a bad job if the supervisor was better and they pay as well. She was literally talking about and employees to other employees. Just left a bad tasteo

Pros

Hours. No weekends

Cons

The pay, the supervisor, having to pay for parking, the work load.

Pay your phd students better

We actively contribute to the university's progression but yet are paid below what staff and student employees make... Empty promises of benefits for us

Good culture, bad pay

Culture is very important and duke does a good job of trying to keep a nontoxic culture. The pay is lacking and it shows in the high turnover rate. It is a good stepping stone for nurses.

Excellent Communications Co-workers

I really enjoyed my communications co-workers. I also appreciated the flexibility to work from home during the pandemic, with Zoom meetings instead of in-person staff and project meetings.
