checking IDs and studying contact with students. Time to study hardest was staying awake on midnights and working in the cold Chicago weather. It was a University culture we were all students making money for expenses.

Graduate Assistant (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – May 27, 2018
It seems that, in general, staff are expected to take on many roles outside of their initial job description and are not compensated accordingly. It can be difficult to move projects forward due to red tape.
Department of medicinal chemistry and pharmacognosy is great

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – May 15, 2018
A typical work day working in the Deans office varied daily. Things were assigned according to the Deans needs. I learned how to work with Physicians throughout the college and their assistants. The workplace culture varied. Employee and students from a parts of the world attended UIC. The hardest part of this job was I did not have a PHD as all of the other assistants for the Dean. He promoted me to his assistant after his last Assistant quit and I was ever so grateful. The most enjoyable part of the job was I was able to accomplish each task that was assigned even if it meant putting in longer hours.
Learning how to prioritize my job responsiblity
loved this job even if it meant to miss breaks and lunch.

I was a PhD student there and I learned a lot from the faculties. It was a good experience for me. The culture is good and warm. The engineering school is now expanding and would provide better opportunities for its students.
