Events Staff (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – October 31, 2017
A typical day starts off with pre-shifting. Supervisors and captains assign tasks to everyone. Everyone does their own duties, which include mostly set up and service. If someone is done with his responsibility he should help others. What I learned during summer time working there is an importance of responsibility as well as collaboration and great communication. Management was good and helped us with any trouble or question we had. Workplace culture was peaceful because mostly it is students who work there. Everyone tried to support and understand each other. The hardest part of the job was getting everyone work efficiently. There were a lot of enjoyable moments but the most enjoyable one was when we work and communicate with the team.
Graphic Designer/Marketing Coordinator (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – May 25, 2017
Great place to work. Nice people, organized establishment. The enrollment numbers are down so they didn't pay too well...Other than that everything was great and would recommend it to others. Free breakfast lunch and dinner has its perks too!
Director of Field Marketing (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – May 21, 2017
On-boarding was non-existent. No training on any software necessary to complete daily activities was provided. The culture is one of blame=shifting and fear. The faculty is very committed and dedicated to their art and generally very pleasant. However, there are no processes in place or even a flow chart to assist in identifying who the "go to" person is for executing tasks.
No breaks. Extremely disroganized, culture of non-accountability
Work place is at College, offering a source of income and experience for international students.
Events agent (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – January 16, 2016
A typical day of work will be weather set-up or events service. A group of students is scheduled taking under consideration their level of experience and their skills and jobs are assigned. We would prepare the event following the BEO and follow the instructions of the higher roles to make the event successful. This job has taught me to train new workers and the work ethics in Kendall. The hardest part of the job would probably be the hours (over 12 hours of work in some occasions). The most enjoyable pat would e working as pat of a team with great coworkers and being part of event that are s important for the attendees (weddings, graduations...).
Library Aid (Current Employee) – 900 N Branch – August 10, 2015
Working here for two years has essentially secured my ability to stay in Chicago, and pay rent. I loved being able to do my homework at school while helping people research topics for their studies. I quite like working here, my management is amazing and I love the people I work with. Unfortunately this job has absolutely no room to advance, which makes sense as it is just a student working position.
Contributing Education Faculty Member (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – April 25, 2014
Working for Kendall has been very rewarding for the past 8 years. I learn a lot from the students that I teach. My dean is a very fair, consistent, and has a great personality overall. I work with a great team. I love my job at Kendall.
Concierge /Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – April 7, 2014
Kendall allowed me the opportunity to learn how to work quickly under pressure. I maintained the front desk of the building, providing a welcoming atmosphere, customer service, security, and administrative assistance to just about every department in the school. I was the "Director of First Impressions". I made certain that everyone walked into the school with a positive vibe. The most difficult parts of the job were maintaining a lunch crowd of about 60 people in small space, and receiving proper communication & information pertaining to large events happening on campus. I worked at Kendall for 5 years and was never able to have the opportunity to advance to a higher position than where I began. The most enjoyable part of my job was working with the co-workers that I had the pleasure of seeing daily. They were amazing.
Assistant to the Dean of School of Business (Current Employee) – Chicago , IL – February 10, 2012
My first "Business job". Working for this institute of higher education is one of the greatest honors I have ever had . Management is flexible and extremely kind, you are valued for the work you do and the amount of exposure and people that you get to meet and connect with is just staggering.
amazing amount of exposure, seeing the results of your work, and knowing that it mattered
nothing too negative that i personally experienced, at times team collaboration is needed, and it can be overwhelming at first, but it soon becomes very natural
