Part Time Librarian (Former Employee) –  Cranford, NJJuly 16, 2018
I worked knowing full well I would never be full time. They are following the same path as Kean University and they will suffer the same way as them. They need more full time and less adjuncts
Pros
Nice campus
Cons
state of fear of saying the wrong things to the wrong people.

Bully Culture is Prevalent
Manager (Current Employee) –  Cranford, NJJuly 9, 2018
Bullying is top down. There is propensity to dress down peers and subordinates in meetings. It's horrifying to watch. When brought to upper management's attention, nothing is done. Upper management doesn't want to work too hard so the path of least resistance is the norm.
Deadlines are rarely adhered to and cost overruns are the norm due to very poor project management.
Pros
Great gym facilities, Students are great
Cons
Lazy Managers, Directors, Sr Management

Great Review
Non-Credit Instructor (Current Employee) –  Cranford, NJMay 2, 2018
As an instructor, its a good position. You may have to stay on top of the department chairs in order to get access to the choice classes. The one drawback is the lack of parking on the Cranford Campus.
Cons
Lack of parking on the Cranford Campus

Typical school job
Student Worker (Former Employee) –  Cranford, NJApril 16, 2018
Worked at the Student Life office, and the management is
fair, and pleasant to work with.

Don't go in expecting to make lots of money though, it is
part time, and you're making a little bit less than minimum
wage.

But, they do work with your schedule, and the trade off is
working and going to school in the same place, so its at
least convenient in that sense.
Pros
Work/Class convenience, good managers
Cons
Low pay

Adjunct Professor (Part-time) (Former Employee) –  Cranford, NJApril 16, 2018
I have nothing bad to say about it. Some of the students in the nursing program wanted and received grades they did not deserve. It's unfortunate that students are being pushed through even when it comes to college.
Pros
the cafe is good and most of the people
Cons
administration pushes kids through

Good Place to Start
Tutor/Technical Support/Receptionist (Former Employee) –  Cranford, NJApril 5, 2018
If you're looking for a place to start working while taking classes at Union County College, you won't find much better than working at the Academic Learning Center. Work days are relatively easy-going, and they even tailor your work schedule around your class schedule. Working there also gets you some experience in customer service, which, I'd say, would help most people in the future when entering the workforce after college. All in all, the ALC is a great place to work if you want a little extra money while also taking classes.
Pros
Work Scheduled Around Your Class Schedule
Cons
Only Hires Current Students at UCC

Great Partime as Student
Tutor / Lab assistant (Former Employee) –  Cranford, NJMarch 18, 2018
It is a great way to balance school life and working life, while being able to review material at the same time. Although the pay is not that great, your bosses will be pretty cool and for the most part it is not very stressful.
