Good for students

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
If you or a family member are working on a degree, take a job at liberty university. You will receive decent pay for the area but it is the benefits that make the difference. The medical insurance is excellent and you will receive 18 credit hours free per academic year. Your immediate family will be able to do entire degrees full time largely for free as well.

Pros

Excellent benefits

Cons

Mediocre applicability to future careers

Amazing Culture

It has been a pleasure to work with Student Activities. The culture of the department is unmatched. I have been there for a year and I would recommend anyone to apply

Office Politics: the job

Departments each think they are king, and will backstab each other constantly. Your life or situation is unlikely to matter to most supervisors, as is your schedule. Pay is lower than most places around town. PTO is middle of the road. Highly limited advancement. I thought the phrase “if you have time to take a drink, you’ve got time to grab a broom!” was something from a sitcom, until my boss told me that unironically one day.

Pros

Can pay for your school

Cons

Everything else

What is the best part of working at the company?The students were the best part of the job. They are shining stars and a real joy. The professors who work there pour their hearts into the job.What is the most stressful part about working at the company?If you work at LU the upper management will treat you with contempt and pay you very poorly, yet expect you to give 110%.What is the work environment and culture like at the company?The infrastructure is stellar with regard to buildings and equipment, however, money is esteemed above all else and Christian etiquette is hard to find in those in power. It makes working there a mission field of complete sacrifice instead of a job where you are compensated fairly for your work.

Good people, good workplace, so-so pay

Liberty University is a pretty great place to work, especially if you're just starting out in your career or are possibly on the cap end of it. They have great benefits, the working environment is generally pleasant and easy going, and the people are some of the most friendly and good natured one's I've worked with (barring some exceptions of course, as you'd expect anywhere). The biggest negative is the pay, as Liberty's salaries, though they've been improving, still aren't as competitive as other private companies might offer for similar positions. This can be offset by their allowing employees and employee's immediate families to get degrees essentially for free, but if you don't need a degree, the lower pay scale can hurt a bit.

Not the worst place I have ever worked

Liberty is by far not the worst place I have ever worked but its far from the best. The policies and systems in place are absolutely awful from an IT perspective. Most of the issues that i received over the 2 years I worked there could not even be fixed. They could not be fixed because Liberties online programs are absolutely terrible. Students get no guidance, professors offer zero help so it all falls on you at some point. There is no line when it comes to service. You are expected to do basically everything and anything the student asks, from fixing their 2 dollar mic to submitting their assignments for them for the entire week.

Productive and Team Approach

All faculty and staff receive 100% support and highly qualified professional development. It offers an excellent schedule and plenty of opportunities for promotion and growth. It also provides the opportunity to pursue additional education in many fields.

Pros

Schedule, and compensation

Cons

None

Supportive Christian management

Working with a group of dedicated professionals is truly a pleasure. Most people you work with have the desire to do their best for their job. Learning new skills and applying them to the job is my most enjoyable part. The hardest part is that there never seem to be enough people to accomplish the mission but it leaves lots of opportunities for success.

Low pay, difficult scheduling, and micro managing managers

Wouldn't recommend it unless you have no other choice, pay is low compared to competing companies. The stuff you deal with is worth more pay and there is absolutely no way to get promoted past 1 level up.

Pros

tuition benefits

Cons

hardly any time off

Take it for the free education, nothing more.

The politics in leadership is no better than the worst you’ve seen elsewhere. Nepotism runs deep in many departments, making management above the law. If you can negotiate a decent starting salary in a work-from-home department, it may be worth getting a free education, but don’t expect career advancement or a resume booster.

Pros

Work from home, Pto, decent salary

Cons

Literally everything else
Was this review helpful?

Some good departments, mostly bad employer

Not overly stressful, however, drama runs rampant for being a "Christian" enviornment, and the pay is not worth it. Even with the tuition assistance, I am not sure there is much benefit to working at Liberty.

Pros

Continuing Education benefit

Cons

lack of flexibility, pay

Great partly passive gig, low pay but a lot of off time that makes up for it

Being a language tutor with LUO has been going great and I see myself doing this for years moving forward as well. Language tutors are paid even when not all appointment slots are filled and work most of the year except during Christmas. So, though you are only at $11 an hour, there is a lot of down time and since this is work from home, you can do what you want with that free time while still being on the clock. Honestly, coming from a freelance foreign language tutor background (and working on language tutoring sites where it is more about who can offer the cheapest services, literally as low as $2-5 an hour) and getting that big chunk of independent contractor tax deducted off of what little I made there, having this job where you are garanteed 20 h/wk for about 50 weeks of the year (and get a W-2!) is amazing and pays more in the long run (saves the extra effort of having to market yourself to individual students, not to mention find new students to replace ones who don't need you anymore, on the freelance side of things). The job itself is very easy seeing as I have already had a lot of tutoring experience before and the students receiving tutoring are at beginner level (in addition, YOU don't have to prepare anything. THEY must bring their assignment to you). You must include management in every email of communication you send. You may change your 20 hours around every semester, and time off will not be given on weeks 3, 5, and 7-8 during a semester session because students are required to book a session with the tutor to get points (so, those weeks are usually fuller - 

Pros

Flexible schedule, guaranteed hours, supportive management, remote

Cons

Low pay

Very bad workplace

Job was overly toxic. If you knew the right people then you was in for a good time but if you didn't you were screwed. Management is very toxic and expect you to do loads of work for limited pay.

Blessed to be a part of LUO!

So blessed to be a part of Liberty University! The university is a faith-based organization where students and faculty are treated fairly and the love of Jesus is a part of all we do!

Great People

Liberty University is great environment to add to your resume to prepare you for supervisory careers. Great team building environment. Great location!

Call Center…

The title of the job looks good on resume, but you are nothing but a call center representative. During “peak time” you work MANDATORY overtime and it’s 11+ hours a day for 5-6 days straight. The continuing education benefit is the best thing going.

Wouldn’t recommend

Left on good terms but wouldn’t recommend the job to anyone. It’s nice it is remote; however there is no work life balance, different hours everyday and they are terrible. 11-8 shifts. Calls are listened to 24/7 and you are graded for each call. They are expectant of too much.

Blessing

It’s wonderful to be surrounded by like minded people. Starting each day in prayer is priceless. Getting to help people is what I was looking for and being an admissions counselor I get to do that.

Pros

Prayer

Cons

Hours aren’t ideal. 945-645
