Reviews

Research Assistant in Chicago, IL
on June 7, 2021
Great for Students
I worked on the Secure Scheduling Study with under work-study for about a year and a half and really enjoyed the work I did. However, due to the nature of work-study, I didn't receive any benefits or base hours.
Analyst in Chicago, IL
on June 1, 2021
I would rate this job 3.7 out of 5, if decimals are allowed here. The one thing I appreciate the most is the knowledge I learned in this institution. Most days I am happy with where I am, but as time passes by, I wish to have more advancement opportunities (which seems to be a distant goal here).
Research Assistant in Chicago, IL
on May 31, 2021
Admin is not the best at the University of Chicago, as I'm sure any student will gladly tell you. However, as a student, research positions are readily available as you progress in your studies, and you will be well-compensated.
Nurse Associate in Chicago, IL
on May 23, 2021
Great benefit and tuition reimbursement packages - a lot better than some other hospitals in the area. Pay is also a lot higher for nurses. I did not like how they held their plans to merge departments, which ultimately left people without a job. Also, some individuals in HR are microaggressive and not really professional -- particularly if you are in an administrative role.
Material Specialist in 5841 S Maryland Ave, Chicago, IL 60637
on May 4, 2021
I would do this job if I strictly wanted to get paid. Staffing is always low. The one plus to working this job is the independence. Dependability on each person varies.
