Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Kingston, RI – August 9, 2018
As an academic institution funding can be lackluster at times. However, depending on which department you are working/teaching for can make all the difference. Great culture, affordable part of Rhode Island to reside in as well as growing and expanding the school. Of note, URI has the lowest endowment of any public flagship state university.
Chair, Department of Military Science (ROTC) (Former Employee) – Kingston, RI – July 1, 2018
ROTC gives the university student an opportunity to see if military service would be a good fit without the pressure of making a commitment. Many students opt to seek a commission as an Army officer as a result of their ROTC experience.

Database Developer Intern (Current Employee) – Department of Pharmacy – June 3, 2018
The University has fantastic support for students needing to gain hands-on work experience after taking the required courses.

Graduate Assistant Coach (Former Employee) – Kingston, RI – June 3, 2018
I was a graduate assistant football coach. GA's make very little money and work constantly. It's a grind but it's the only way to get your foot in the door to becoming a college position coach. After the whole staff was fired after one season of me being there, I decided that I didn't want to move every year to take a new job at a new school somewhere in the country. I wanted to settle down and have a family somewhere and being a college football coach is a tough career if you want to have a family.

Assistant Marine Scientist (Former Employee) – Narragansett, RI – March 7, 2018
Since I left the University of Rhode Island almost 40 years ago, I cannot comment on the current work environment, nor the present administration. I encourage those applying for jobs to contact potential peers for opinions on the present work environment.
Supplemental Instructor (Former Employee) – Kingston, RI – January 14, 2018
I highly recommend any undergraduate student work part time as a research assistant for a professor in their major. However, be sure you are interested in the field you join and that you get along with your advisor or it could become an absolutely miserable time.
Custodian (Current Employee) – Kingston, RI – December 12, 2017
A typical day at work was cleaning college dorm rooms where I learned how to properly clean and utilize cleaning equipment. The hardest part of the job was working in the poor weather conditions. But the best part of the job was the learning experience.
