Kitchen Assistant (Former Employee) –  Storrs, CTJanuary 2, 2019
I was working at Dining Services from age 17 to 23. It taught me a lot about working full time but also about my abilities and work ethic. Forever grateful for the opportunity to work there as early on in my life as I did. As with any job you may not agree with a certain manager or employee, but with the Union in place, you are pretty well protected.
Pros
Job security, benefits, experience
Cons
nothing serious enough to mention

Resident Assistant (Former Employee) –  Storrs, CTOctober 8, 2018
Great job for students to have when you are considering just the benefits. Room and board was covered under the RA position which was a nice benefit to have, however, it did come at a sacrifice when it came to work life balance, however, if you enjoy helping people you will find joy in this job.

English Fellowship (Former Employee) –  Groton, CTJanuary 3, 2019
Loved working there. Avery Point had a wonderful culture of caring individuals. Felt more like a small town than a huge University. Cold in the winter.

ResLife Program Under Construction
RESIDENT ASSISTANT (Former Employee) –  Storrs Mansfield, CTDecember 17, 2018
During my brief period working in ResLife, UConn was exploring a new set of guidelines for Resident Assistants. These guidelines held issues that needed to be ironed out, but the potential was there. Employees were both helpful and friendly, and the workplace culture was average.

The position in the clinic was interesting and rewarding.
CLINIC COORDINATOR (Former Employee) –  Storrs, CTFebruary 10, 2019
A typical day at work consisted of screening potential clients and assigning them to graduate students for treatment. The job also included providing direct supervision to graduate students both during treatment sessions and after sessions. I received supervision from graduate faculty who were very responsive and informed. The work place culture was collaborative. The most enjoyable part of the job was educating the less experienced students and learning from experienced professors.

Mixed Review for Adjunct Professors in the Arts and Sciences
Adjunct Faculty (Current Employee) –  Storrs, CTOctober 16, 2018
Though working as an adjunct professor and/or lecturer at the University of Connecticut is relatively easy/flexible and with some autonomy, the salary, or pay per course, renders the job a non-starter. As per the state of Connecticut law, adjuncts are only allowed to teach up to eight credit hours per semester; therefore, it is difficult to endorse working for the University of Connecticut in an adjunct/instructor professor role. Furthermore, it is unfortunate that UConn's graduate students (without a PhD) have a significantly better salary package (which includes health and dental benefits) than that of their Adjunct faculty.
Pros
Relative autonomy and decent support depending on department
Cons
Poor pay, difficult location

Pros
Support of professional development; transferrable skills
Cons
