Having worked as an adjunct in at least 8 schools, I can say Stony Brook is one of the best.Based on the way the school approaches its adjunct lecturers, I am sure the full-time staff is equally well treated.
Electrician General Mechanic (Current Employee) – Stony Brook, NY 11790 – March 28, 2019
Typical work day just like any other electrical position. I would receive my tickets and had a van to work from. I also had a cell phone where they would contact me if there was a major electrical issue.
Nurse Practitioner (Former Employee) – Stony Brook, NY – March 10, 2019
Our director was not a clinician, nor was she a health care administrator. She had no appreciation of the time and effort put into the role. In addition, she displayed blatant favoritism for certain employees based on her inappropriate personal attachment to them.
Stony Brook Student Media (Current Employee) – New York, NY – February 24, 2019
A typical workday is usually calm. The world load I receive isn't difficult and can be achieved in the time frame it's expected of me. My co-workers are fun and cool when it comes to swapping roles as well.

Clerk II (Current Employee) – Stony Brook, NY – February 13, 2019
I was a temporary for Stony Brook twice for a total of 6 years and was told how great they treat their employees until I worked for the company and saw how poor the management was and how there was favoritism and drama that wasn't handled by the management. I was forced to leave due to I wasn't part of the drama and came and went when my work was done. I was offended by the lack of judgement and how things were over looked depending on the person. There was foul play and patients had to pay the price when it came to their health. I had to leave because i couldn't stand to see healthcare be thrown out the door over money. I enjoy helping people not hurting people with words and forcing them to make decisions they were not ready for and also to not hurt their feelings.
hours, lots of job positions available, discounts on cell service
healthcare, limited raises, drama, lengthy time to get hired, more work less pay, too many passwords to remember
Specimen Processing Lab Aide (Current Employee) – Stony Brook, NY – January 27, 2019
I work in the department of Specimen Recieving. Work is pretty technical, requires some knowledge of medical terminology and computer knowledge. The pay is very low relative to the sometimes challenging technical work involved. List of things I had to deal with: - when it rains hard outside, the main drain pipes in the hospital breaks and we get flooded. Boss threatened to fire us if anyone post video of waterfall gushing through the ceiling on social media. - there are no official contract. when I was hired as nightshift, changing to dayshift was extremely difficult, I was given an offer for dayshift without any contract or paperwork. HR doesn’t make such forms. So supervisor took advantage of this and forced me and others to continue to work nightshift (even with dayshift offer) for many months. - environment is cut throat. Everyone is out to protect themselves and to go home without being written up (as they call it getting a psn). Hardly ever do they help each other out and try to understand the fault of the system and not the staff.

Calculations Clerk (Former Employee) – Stony Brook, NY – November 29, 2018
Stony Brook is a good place to work because it has room for advancement, great benefits, unions, paid holidays. They even have employee assistance for college credit. The hardest part of the job is that it is a hospital. You work all shifts & holidays.
It was a great place to work, learn, and take advantage of cultural, academic and athletic offerings
