Performing Arts Center Volunteer Work (Former Employee) – Albany, NY – August 21, 2018
I did the bulk of the work at this job. There was more than one department and I was the only employee in my department. The job didn't cause stress. The management was very laid-back and wasn't really invested in giving me things to do. I often found things that needed to be done on my own.
Researcher (Former Employee) – Albany, NY – July 2, 2018
The job was extremely fun, as I was able to make many new friends, as well as enjoyed what I was doing, no matter what it was. The hardest part of the day was traveling home, but atleast I had the next day to look forward too.
Recreational Manager (Current Employee) – Physical Education Building – May 31, 2018
When I began working at the University as a lifeguard I didn't realize how involved I would become in the community. I met a lot of amazing people who helped me get through my four years of college. Everyone continuously supported the decisions I had to make when working in this environment and encouraged me to become a recreational manager.
Resident Assistant (Former Employee) – Albany, NY – May 25, 2018
Working with the university gave me the necessary tool to learn new skills as well as enhance my professional life. With the workplace being organized and having diligent coworkers, I knew I was bound to learn something new almost daily.
Peer Mentor (Former Employee) – Albany, NY – May 23, 2018
I learned all different teaching styles and different ways to communicate with people in order to help them understand what they were learning. The most enjoyable part of the day is when a student finally understand something and their excitement that comes along with it
Professional Development Coordinator (Current Employee) – Albany, NY – May 23, 2018
Any one review for UAlbany would be difficult to capture all the diverse experiences and working conditions. I spent my time in an office setting located within an academic unit. Pay wasn't the best, but the collaboration among professionals was great.
Part-time Lecturer of course CRJ 202 (Former Employee) – Albany, NY – May 21, 2018
We went to the class with the students, which met two days out of the week (Monday and Wednesday). The class was an hour and a half, an consist of law, state and federal cases, and the Constitution. I learned how to assign homework and grade exams. My supervising professor was great. He answered all my questions and helped me through the grading process.There was a good workplace culture, and my hiring supervisor was excellent as well. Hardest part of my job was explaining to a student why they did not score well on an assignment or exam. They look at you with defeat in their eyes- it is very saddening.
Student Assistant (Current Employee) – Albany, NY – May 16, 2018
As it was student assistant researcher position, the job was well. The hours were relatively minimum, and when you got to the job it was a very collaborative work environment. I learned a lot which is very applicable to possible future careers.
Like taking another class yet getting paid to do so
The job was not so fun and the pay was very little.
Security Guard (Former Employee) – Albany, NY – April 21, 2018
The job experience there was not so great our pay was very low not only that it wasn't a real job it was like a gig.People that I worked with were pretty rude and racist to me and family members that worked there. No equal respect was there nor treatment wasn't fear with any of us.
Volunteer (Former Employee) – Albany, NY – April 15, 2018
Being a student here has really opened allot of opportunities for me and has allowed me to learn so much. Being able to see different aspects of things and being able to learn off other people has been amazing as well as doing community service
Math Tutor (Former Employee) – Albany, NY – April 13, 2018
I worked as a math tutor while I was in graduate school for my masters in mathematics. I tutored for EOP, Disabilities Center, Athletics Program, and Math Department. Everyone was so kind. I myself have a disability and they were always so kind and understanding of it I never felt uncomfortable. The pay isn’t huge but working as a student I wouldn’t expect it to be. However each department does pay differently amounts. There is always someone there to help with anything. The balance between work and school was perfect. I am now an independent contractor for private tutoring with the math department because I get paid a lot more and I graduated.
Graduate Assistant (Current Employee) – Albany, NY – April 5, 2018
As a graduate assistant the hours are flexible and they work very well with your class schedule and other duties to make sure that everything is getting done, but that you are also on top of your academics
Graduate Assistant (Former Employee) – Albany, NY – March 27, 2018
State jobs in a limited employment environment, you want the job department funding in cut each semester.

Worked with head of Department of Special projects and enjoyed it, given full responsibility for assignment.
Strength and Conditioning Intern (Current Employee) – Albany, NY – March 23, 2018
I was an intern for athletics at university at Albany. It was a valuable experience I learned about a division 1 athletics program. At that level its really vital to put the athletes first. Everything we did caters to the athletes. As an unpaid intern, I worked about 12 hours a day. It was really tough, but it only proved how hard my work ethic is. Workplace culture was great. the faculty welcomed me and made me feel as one. Overall it was a valuable learning experience that I can relate to any job I get in the future.
