Graduate Research Assistant (Current Employee) – Ruskin, FL – June 11, 2018
great work environment, not too much room for advancement, on the lower side of pay but the benefits are great . As a grad student my typical day of work was very variable, sometimes I was seining fish in ponds the next day I'm writing my thesis till 3:00am. It was an interesting experience that provided some great experience.
working the university is going well its just that I need to relaocate closer to my family and kids. I like it but I need to get closer. Its hard for me to find place to live there as well. the cost of living is hard because they look out for the students more than anything.

Worked an overnight summer camp. The facilities were clean and accessible. Security was great and the girls felt safe. The head women's lacrosse coach is supportive, generous, and passionate about her program.
Assistant Director (Former Employee) – Academic Support Services – June 1, 2018
Several resources, duplication of services, no job security, good benefits, good employee relations, majority women directors need PhD - men do not, very large organization, easy to get lost in the crowd, undefined and sometimes unclear hiring practices.
Customer Research Specialist (Former Employee) – Gainesville, FL – May 14, 2018
Working at the Survey Research Call Center and taking calls was one of the ways that a student could make money and go to college. Granted it worked with your school's schedule and you were able to pick up extra shifts to make more money. One thing I must say though, don't take this job if you don't like to sit still in a cubicle for hours at a time. Also don't take this job if you are not a phone person as you will have to make cold calls for people to take surveys. Be prepared for people to hang up on you constantly.
Needed people to take surveys or it effected your productivity
I really enjoyed working with the animals. I made sure they were fed and watered and healthy. I had access to a staff veterinarian if animals were unhealthy. I also enjoyed the students. They were interesting and very smart. I learned a lot from them. My boss, a professor was also terrific.
Human Resources Specialist II (Current Employee) – Gainesville, FL – May 11, 2018
University of Florida is a good place to work; The benefits are really good; however, it has its positives and negatives. Like other employers, it's "who you know". They do what they want and to whom they want.
The university of Florida provides a fun environment for everyone to enjoy their time while also maintaining a serious environment to ensure that everyone is still able to be productive, accomplish their goals, and get their work finished.
Lead Science Writer (Former Employee) – Gainesville, FL – May 10, 2018
The atmosphere was creative and dynamic in the section where I worked. The work was interesting and managers do their best to accommodate a life/work balance, but it is hard to do within the state budget constraints and HR rules.
