University of Arizona is a relaxed place to be in work wise. The work is slow paced and a lot of importance was given to building upon the basics, in order to lay a foundation for working ahead.

As a student worker, pay was minimum, but the work was hot and demanding. Plants don't take a break from growing, so I had to be available at any time. They were flexible enough to ensure work did not conflict with studies.
Work was challenging yet rewarding. Daily operations brought many scenarios.

Senior Accountant/Financial Analyst (Current Employee) – Tucson, AZ – January 3, 2019
High turnover rate 94% with low wages where most people with the knowledge and expertise have left for greener pastures. Management is stressed and often not heard. Central services boasts a 94% turnover rate. No new employee training. Most people leave within 2 years due to annual budget cuts making it difficult for Campus and other business needs to be met. Would not recommend.
Understaffed, budget cuts and increase in benefits
ATC for Club Sports (Current Employee) – Tucson, AZ – December 23, 2018
As a part-time employee, I appreciate the benefits package the UofA provides. I only work 20 hours a week for 9 months of the year and received full 12 months coverage for medical, dental, vision, and retirement income. Also, they provide substantial tuition waiver discounts as well. No other company will provide these benefits for part-time 20 hrs/wk employees.
There is great collaboration and teamwork within the Campus Health and Campus Recreation staff. Good, hard-working individuals who care about their jobs and love what they do.
low pay, and hired for a part time job that should be full time

Coordinator (Current Employee) – Tucson, AZ – November 26, 2018
Typical day is interacting with students, overseeing student employees, attending staff meetings, answering emails, scheduling future meetings,assisting with marketing events, planning upcoming events.
I learned to multitask more efficiently, assist students in crisis, assist people with resources through the university, event planning from conception to execution, and scheduling meetings/collaborations with other university/community partners.
Poor management, lack of staff support, and inability to foster an equitable workplace environment in relation to workplace conflict.
