Friend work place, well balanced of work and study
Student Assistant Worker (Former Employee) – Queens, NY – June 12, 2018
I was hired by the university where I studied for my master, so we have the restriction of maximum work hour of 20 hours per week. There was no hardest part of this job, the supervisors would not give you too much work or long lasting project. Only during the university application season, the workload would be tired you up. I was doing lots of front desk work. My interpersonal, conversational and problem solving skills were enhanced. The enjoyable part of the job was you could experience different problems and students everyday. I learnt many things and my horizon was broaden. The workplace culture is good, the hierarchy was clear, everyone was working hard.
Department Coordinator/Assistant (Former Employee) – Queens, NY – May 22, 2018
During my years at St. John's I worked in an office where I assisted the professors. I learned how to work not only with the professors but with the administrators and students. The University was managed very well and the workplace culture was professional. The hardest part of the job was doing everything I could for the student that was humanly possible in the position that I held; most enjoyable part of the job was when I was successful.
Research Assistant (Current Employee) – Staten Island, NY – February 2, 2018
Honestly, being a graduate research assistant was not terribly demanding. I acted more as a secretary than I did as an actual research assistant. Professors aren't willing to entrust a graduate student with their own research, I suppose.
IT Student Worker (Former Employee) – Queens, NY – January 16, 2018
Through working as a student worker in the IT department, I learned much concerning the maintenance of the campus's computer network and maintenance. Student's would be required to assist professors in trouble shooting or technical difficulties whenever they would arise.
The University offers the collegiality of a wonderful staff, faculty, and lower to middle managers
Administrator (Current Employee) – Queens, NY – January 10, 2018
Working at the University offers many benefits, especially in terms of the people. There is an overall atmosphere of decency and common purpose that pervades the institutional culture, reflecting the University's Catholic and Vincentian mission .
The office in which I am located is a good example. The sense of collegiality makes work enjoyable and exciting. The department's managers--from mid-level directors on up--are supportive and lead by example.
At times, the upper levels of administration may seem a bit remote. However, this may be true of many large organizations. The benefits of working at the University far outweigh any negatives.
General collegiality, vacation days, beauty of location, strong moral sensibility.
The highest levels of the administration occasionally seem remote.
