Things are relaxed and there is enough guidance to become independent. Benefits are good as well. Overall it is a solid place to work. Bring your own lunch though because the food at the union can quickly add up

Very professional. Pay and benefits were fair. With multiple campuses around state you have opportunity to work close to home if you’re lucky enough to land position at desired location. Would have liked to stay if didn’t have to commute so far

Uconn provides a work life balance with challenging opportunities. I am only considering leaving to live in another state. The management is supportive and collaborative. They provide all types of training and your skill development is encouraged.

At this job I can work on my schoolwork and do my job at the same time. The hours are good and my co-workers are very nice and helpful. There is also a ping pong table for break time.

Tom is awesome! Good experience. Might chuck more wood than you’ve ever seen before. If you work in the summer though you’ll get a lot of cool opportunities

During the years that I worked at UConn I didn’t have a salary increase for over 3 years! Management made you feel terribly insignificant. Your co-workers were catty and not willing to help you! As a newer employee management left you our to fail due to NO training! Facilities department VP was condescending and had favorites.
He was very rude and arrogant and would not talk to the lower level employees. Co-workers held everything close and would never share information!

I am more qualified and have more experience than my superiors. I also do more of the heavy lifting, yet I get paid way less, have no insurance, and am not treated equally.

Though this was a research project and a senior capstone. I learned a lot and it was a good way to take everything which we have obtained from school and apply it to a sponsored project by a research lab

small amount of real work, do whatever you want the rest of the time

a typical day at work is punching in to the mailroom where you are working, waiting for people to come in to give them their mail and in the meantime do homework or whatever you like. Boss is very approachable and understanding but very serious if a situation arises.

Do not wish to provide review. This is filler since I am forced to fill this out.
Here is some more filler. Here is an attempt to reach the 150 word minimum.

Working as a research assistant for one of my English professors was an amazing experience. I was able to get an inside look into the duties and lifestyle of a higher education professional in a field I was pursuing my undergraduate career in. I was able to establish a wonderful friendship with this professor who was particularly helpful in terms of providing advice and guidance towards my future academic and professional aspirations.

Love my fellow coworkers and bosses. Great people and work environment. I always have something to do and you have the freedom to work at your own pace. No rush jobs. It is a kind of place where what you do at work stays at work.
