Dining Service Assistant (Former Employee) – Dayton, OH – September 18, 2018
The management was good. A typical day at work was easy and sometimes, but very rarely stressful. I learned how to clean different things and how to work with and around people with all kinds of races, cultures, religions, ethnicities,and backgrounds. The job didn't have a hard part. The easiest part of the job was the job itself because the things I did in a typical day were simple things to do and easy to get done.
Good work environment, friendly co-workers, good managment
You could only work nine months out of the year, and it was hard getting on to full-time
Collaborative, intellectually stimulating community
Graduate Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – Communication Department – January 29, 2018
The Communication Department at the University of Dayton is a marvelous place to work. It’s work environment is community oriented, collaborative, and supportive. If a permanent position were available, I would definitely want to stay, and if I have to leave to find a full time position I would try to establish a similar work environment in my new position.
Flexible work hours, excellent benefits, wonderful work environment
UD Emporium Supervisor (Former Employee) – Dayton, OH – December 20, 2017
There are other positions that may offer more stable work environment, but mine wasn't one of them. My schedule changed week to week and my hours were always different. Wouldn't have been a huge deal, but that was mentioned as something important to me in the interview changing from one job to the next in the company. Other than that, supervising children who do not want to work is quite a challenge.
These things were job specific though, and UD as a whole is a beautiful place that offers a lot to potential employees. The benefits were amazing, including free tuition to an amazing school.
Bio Researcher - The lab environment was very inclusive, and relaxed. I was asked to take the lead on multiple projects and train people in different lab techniques. I was paid on time, and a good salary, and only stopped working because the research project ended.
Lab Intructor- Students are granted the responsibility and honor of teaching. There are many resources to help the teacher create a lesson, and make sure they are teaching the correct thing.
It is the worst ran organization I have ever worked for. Management is awful! people are rude, ignorant and clueless. I am not one of the employees that is mad at the university because I am in bad standing or have issues at all. I am just trying to let someone know what I wish I could have known before working here! Bargaining unit employees are under paid and over worked like slaves. And I am not even an bargaining unit employee.....IM MANAGEMENT!!!!!! Management is not allowed to do their jobs and cant be nice with the empoyees and truthfully they are over worked! I am warning you.....do not work there! You will hate it!
The main place that I work at the University of Dayton is in Kettering Labs in the Mechanical Engineering and Aerospace Office. There are some days in the office where there is nothing to do, so I usually just sit at the desk and study or do homework. Other days there is a lot going on and I am busy the entire time that I am there. I do a lot of typing in Microsoft Excel, making spreadsheets and such.
My experience is not typical of the average employee at University of Dayton. I am a part time staff member who works directly with the students. I meet with students, prospective students and their parents. The main focus of my job is to be a resource for the student during the pursuit of their undergraduate degree. I am an expert in a specific curriculum and I advise only students in that major.
Community really is a value -- depending on which department you're in
Grad Assistant (Current Employee) – Dayton, OH – August 31, 2018
UD has a great potential to be the ideal workplace. The college values community, collaboration, social justice and kindness. However, not every department on campus truly embodies these values. Make sure you do your due diligence, take someone from the department out to coffee, and get the inside scoop on whether the workplace environment in that department is truly in line with the university's values or not. If it is, you're in for a real treat. Some of the best learning and working experience I've ever had happened here when I was in the right spot.
I'm in a different position now and the hours are bad. There isn't a work- life balance, but hope it gets better. My first position with the University was nice I loved the team I worked with however, the pay was too low.
