Director of Operations (Current Employee) – Camden, NJ – February 13, 2019
I worked with 4 other supervisors and we work well together but the problem is that the faculty, staff and students are all looking for change and the director just wants to go back to work in New Brunswick. I work at the Camden Campus!
I feel like I grew up here. Besides the fact that this is my alma mater, the workers here, for the most part, really take care of their students and each other. I enjoyed learning and growing and always having access to career advancement and leadership opportunities.
Service Associate (Former Employee) – New Brunswick, NJ – February 7, 2019
They employ any student that asks for a job - but this is a good thing! The drawback is that sometimes there's just so little to do because of it! For student work, management and workplace culture is pretty involved, or at least they try. Since it's at a university, your hours are built around your class schedule, not the other way around, so no worries. Easy way to pick up additional hours if you want to work multiple jobs as well.
Clinical Instructor/Adjunct Faculty (Former Employee) – New Brunswick, NJ – January 28, 2019
Supervised nursing students. Stressful at times, depending on the student. Students are top in academics but some are lacking in people skills. This is seen a lot in academic areas where grades are counted as more important than empathy and people smarts.
Utilities,construction, warehouse experience. (Former Employee) – New Jersey – January 28, 2019
I was dispatched and subbed for work at Rutgers, but I wasn't a Rutgers State employee so most of these questions absolutely do not certain to me. For the department I worked for was a bit toxic. People of different trades. Lots of backstabbing and passing the buck on blaming.
Senior Program Administrator (Former Employee) – New Brunswick, NJ – January 26, 2019
The most enjoyable part of the job was working with fantastic students and being able to mentor them and advance their education. Coworkers were fantastic - friendly, competent, and intelligent.
Management, especially changes to higher levels of the administration, made things more difficult by changing plans and undercutting authority. The transition to cornerstone and going through Procurement made the job much more difficult than it needed to be.
Student (Current Employee) – New Jersey – January 25, 2019
I am a student not a worker in Rutgers University. The Bootcamp course is pretty good but the administrative is not that great. The instructors are good or excellent and TA Charlie is excellent, which are the only reasons I would recommend.
Lecturer (part-time) (Former Employee) – New Brunswick, NJ – January 17, 2019
There are so many wonderful people that work across Rutgers University. These are the reason to work here. There are many systemic problems that plague faculty and administration that make career growth nearly impossible for some people.
Basically at the job we did work sheets and assignments, but at the same time we were learning things and having hands-on experiences. We got paid good and went on trips at the end of each week on Fridays.
Development Writer - staff and freelance (Current Employee) – New Brunswick, NJ – January 10, 2019
I worked as a development writer for the Rutgers University Foundation, and continue to work in a freelance capacity. The work flexiblity has improved since I left, but there is plenty of room for advancement. I feel like once you are hired, the opportunities are limitless--at least at the foundation. The salaries are good, and the benefits are great.
Instructor/ epidemiologist (Former Employee) – NJDOH – January 5, 2019
Specifically regards to the epidemiologist/ instructor position with NJDOH- many employees resigned as a result of ignored complaints regarding racism; discrimination and bullying. The work place environment continues to encourage a toxic environment that encourages such egregious behavior. No accountability regardless of numerous complaints and going through the ‘proper channels’ by several employees subjected to the abusive environment.
