Agriculture Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Lexington, KY – May 12, 2018
It was a great environment to work in. I had the opportunity to work along side other people with similar interests in the field of biology. I was able to perform research tasks such as data collection and entry.
Rn- Perioperative (Former Employee) – Lexington, KY – May 24, 2018
Management is very shady. They are very likely to throw you under the bus to advance themselves. Nursing used to be a pride at UK and now it has been leveled lower and nurses are not prized as they once were. Its very disappointing that experience comes second to a fresh face that will say yes to anything. Very scary for patients.
Academic Advisor (Former Employee) – Main Campus – May 17, 2018
Friendly and productive place to work with an abundance of resources and personnel to master your job responsibilities. One of the advantages of this position was the in-depth knowledge of senior staff to render quality information for students to make good informed decisions.
Student Manager (Current Employee) – Lexington, KY – April 2, 2018
My time working for the University of Kentucky football team has been very beneficial finically and socially since being in college. I have met a lot of successfully people and they have taught me a great amount on life.
Engineering Lab Assistant (Current Employee) – Lexington, KY – March 21, 2018
My typical day at works consists of me completing small tasks and helping students. I have learned how to use 3D printers and other programs that directly apply to engineering. The work environment is very laid back and very enjoyable, but can get hectic at times.
Records Clerk Senior (Former Employee) – Lexington, KY – March 14, 2018
Management was beyond horrendous. A lot of favoritism , backstabbing and management superiority (complex). There were managers that micro-manage every aspect of the job. Lastly, there were managers that intentionally incited and instigated conflict between departments as well as, between individual employees. A very toxic department because of management.
My experience working in other departments were night and day in comparison. University of Kentucky is a great place if you're fortunate enough to work in certain departments.
Network Technician 1 (Former Employee) – Lexington, KY – March 13, 2018
This job could pay more but people who applied and worked there did move on to better things. Their policy is strict and the actions taken did lose some hard workers who were dedicated to the department. Experience lost because of pride.
Student Development Supervisor (Former Employee) – Lexington, KY – March 6, 2018
I worked at the UK Development Office for 5 years and really enjoyed my time there. All you do as a "Student Development Officer" is make phone calls to alumni and other donors of the University for scholarships and other fundraising initiatives. As a supervisor you oversee operations and get to work with your fellow student to help them be more personable on the phones in order to increase the likelihood that they are able to get someone to donate.
