generally good place to work
staff shortages, unqualified management, insufficient employee training, multiple rapid changes in everyday business processes
As a student worker in the Child Labs, I cannot express enough of how well managed the school is. The teachers and all other staff are hands on and truly care about their jobs. They are always there for support and suggestions. The most enjoyable part of the job is being in a beautifully set up classroom with wonderful children.
Mentor/Volunteer (Former Employee) – North Haven, CT – June 23, 2018
Working for UConn was a great experience. If I could I would still be apart of this company. I worked with Children in the Bridgeport Public School system. We taught them Character building ndassisted them with their daily needs as it pertained to school and life.
A great program for retired teachers to use their expertise and experience to help develop and support future teachers. The compensation is low compared to other Universities who pay their supervisors 50% more.
I have worked in several areas of the University, and the prevailing attitude is 'we have always done it this way, and are not changing.' As someone interested in gaining knowledge and moving a career and company forward, this is a very difficult place to work.
I was a student at UConn Stamford and I worked three separate jobs for 3 years and now I am working at UConn again temporarily. I love working at UConn because it worked with my class schedule and they are very flexible
Depending on your assistantship, a day would vary. For example, if you're a TA, you go to classes to teach, grade assignments, takes discussions. If you're a RA, you would be doing research with a Professor/ Unit.
its a lot to juggle. there's so many requirements to fill as an RA at uconn but at the same time we have to find time for school work and friends and family which is hard but the fellow RAs that I had were so lovely and we became like a family
