Assistant Director of Public Safety (Current Employee) – Connecticut – September 2, 2018
The position has challenges in that policy enforcement is often against paying customers. Greatest challenges are associated with that in mind. The position is about maintaining the peace and making one person happy upsets another. You will learn customer service skills, report writing becomes an art form and risk management is a daily chore. It is a fast passed 24 hour a day operation in which everyone wants to do as they please without regard to rules and regulations. The position is not all doom and gloom. There are way more positives than negatives such as opportunities to attend functions, sporting events, etc... Staff tend to be great and nothing is more rewarding them helping a young student and watching them mature over the years and graduate with a all the excitement they can muster.
A typical day consisted of swimmers rolling through to the pool. I learned how to manage with older swimmers who were often angry with the pool schedule. Workplace culture was awesome all the lifeguards had a very close bond.
Program Coordinator (Current Employee) – Fairfield, CT – February 15, 2018
I manage all international students and transfer students' on boarding and transition services. I also work with many campus partners to support those students. The workplace culture is great, we are all helping each others. The most enjoyable part of the job is to oversee a group of student ambassadors. I hire, train, and educate them about onboarding and transition student services.
International Business & Studies Club, President (Current Employee) – Fairfield, CT – January 30, 2018
Grateful to have worked as an intern at the Dean of Students office. It was a great learning experience to work with supportive and talented supervisors, whom all made sure the student experience was a success.
University Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Fairfield, CT – January 21, 2018
The Store manager there is not the best in the world. She doesn't know what she is doing. she put all of her responsibilities ie: the schedule, employee issues, on the assistant manager. She does not have a friendly demeanor and you can not come to her when you have a problem.
Working in the Fairfield University library to purge journals and other publications based on a given list is relaxing and rewarding because it's a calm environment and you also get to organize microfiche.
Adjunct Professor (Current Employee) – Fairfield, CT – November 5, 2017
I teach one course in the fall and two courses in the spring.. Both course meet on the same day so that I only travel to Fairfield once per week. I enjoy working with young undergrads and graduate students.
Lots of fun
Adjuncts don't get paid a lot and there are no other benefits
Operations Administrative Assistant II (Former Employee) – Fairfield, CT – October 16, 2017
My past work experiences, and my work place preference in other companies was focused, deadline driven in a professional environment. This was exactly the work atmosphere in the Dean's office at Fairfield University.
Professor ... (Current Employee) – Fairfield, CT – August 28, 2017
Management is never reviewed for performance and their outcomes are poor. They care not at all for the views of employees and would prefer not to hear from them. Culture of blame. Management does not care about students, just wants their money. Jesuit culture is just marketing.
Teaching is a great vocation
Endless meetings about nothing, no chance of advancement
Area Coordinator - ResLife (Former Employee) – Fairfield, CT – July 27, 2017
Nontraditional work day schedule, but there were many nights and weekend events and responsibilities for this position (so you were compensated in a sense to come in later). Senior Management was very supportive and encouraging. Great work atmosphere.
