Research Assistant (Current Employee) – Columbia, MO – January 20, 2019
I go to work every few days and enjoy working at Mizzou. My daily job is usually assigned by our director. But most frequently , I will be asked to do translation job and interpretation for conferences and training sessions during which I challenged myself to be a brave and active person who can manage pressure.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – UMSL-Saint Louis – November 1, 2018
I worked in a very toxic office on campus. The office was controlled by one girl, who wasn’t even a manager. The manager was new and too dumb and lazy to think for herself. If you don’t personally know a higher up, your voice will not be heard. UMSL Saint-Louis could be a nice place to work, but for the racism and politics. So if you like racism, few raises, and backstabbing co-workers, this is the environment for you. Oh, and you can forget about changing departments. They will block you.
Health, dental, vision and life insurance. Free parking.
Racism, cliques, low pay. Your nobody unless you know somebody
Good benefits; good short-term job. Mediocre management.
Director's Assistant (Former Employee) – Columbia, MO – August 26, 2018
Mizzou has great benefits and there is a chance to learn a lot of different skills/jobs if you're willing to move around. The university does not reward longevity and will lay you off with no performance problems even after 25 years as was my case.
Still, I learned a lot; took advantage of free IT trainings, diversity trainings, etc... I was not blessed with talented managers and so I would change departments in order to advance.
Another thing; Office Support Staff IVs beware; these folks are doing the work of three full time people in most cases. Your coordinator positions, executive assistants are a much more manageable work load.
I will add that Mizzou has a great HR department and a lot of really great people to work with. It's just too easy for untalented and insecure managers to interfere with these great peoples' advancement at the University.
Great benefits; lots of training & educational options.
Inhuman and dis-compassionate robots in management
Patient Service Representative (Former Employee) – Columbia, MO – January 11, 2019
No one knows what they're doing or how to treat people they're in charge of. They do not take suggestions that could make improvements for not only employees but patients as well. Used to be a great place to work, all about the culture of YES, Then they hired new management, including people who knew nothing about healthcare and were not qualified to be managing an environment for patients. Suddenly it was about streamlining, new strict guidelines, and who can we fire next. Culture of YES is meaning less and less since the Unviersity has been under pressure to save it's failing image, and turned to budget cuts instead of values.
The University of Missouri is a great place to work and has a lot of opportunities to explore the world of nursing
OR Scheduler (Current Employee) – Columbia, MO – July 31, 2018
My typical day begins early and requires me to answer the phone, post cases and communicate with other schedulers quickly and efficiently. I have learned how the OR process works from the scheduling of the surgery to discharging from the PACU. Management works well with employees and makes every attempt to allow your schedule to fit your life. The hardest part of my job is making sure everything is done accurately and completely. The most enjoyable part of the day is getting to talk to other schedulers through out the facility and helping them find OR time for their patients.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – July 7, 2018
Office management along with multitasking for the accounting department. Fun loving close knit coworkers who make you feel like they are your family. Time management and multitasking is a must to answer the multiline PBX switchboard. The best part was getting half of my classes for the semester paid for by the school.
UMKC paid for half of my classes that were taken during working hours.
Student Ambassador/Tour Guide (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – November 4, 2018
I was only a student worker, most of my time was spent on giving potential students campus tours and the other time I am assisting the campus at our center with departmental communication. My experience with interacting with the diverse population of student helped me immensely in my next job.
Technology (Current Employee) – Kansas City, MO – October 1, 2018
Great place to work if you're not really interested in advancing your career. Excellent benefits and awesome people, lots of time off and flexible schedules, major bonus is tuition discount for full-time employees. Just no room for career growth.
Student Affairs seemed less focused on students and more on politics
Student & Auxiliary Services (Former Employee) – Columbia, MO – October 9, 2018
Administration seemed to be more focused on how politics affect themselves, rather than how they could support individuals who were there to help students. Salaries were not commensurate with job duties or individuals' experiences. Layoffs happened with no advanced warning, despite administration saying that would not happen.
Good networking opportunities
Difficult to advance professionally, environment of gossip and distrust
Job resposibilities as an Engineering Plant specialist were disproportionate to pay, Work culture all words no action
Mechanical Plant Specialist (Former Employee) – Columbia, MO – November 9, 2018
The work tasks themselves were reasonable, however as the only Mechanical plant specialist on duty during evenings, nights, and weekends the expectations and job tasks were very unreasonable for one person to fulfill.
decent pay and benefits
hostile work environment because of one particular coworker, stressful position being the only on duty Mechanical plant specialist during non business hours
Landscape horticulturist (Current Employee) – Columbia, MO – February 20, 2018
I have worked in three different departments at the university of missouri. if you dont care about getting compensated for working hard, or never being able to get a raise, or having to work harder to make up the slack of your lazeir co-workers, then the university of missouri is for you.
iv had managers who think its ok to do their personal shopping online while at work. managers who sit around and would rather play card games than have an effective and efficent work force. I am continually amazed at how anyone at the university thinks that they are doing a professional job. the administration is highly over paid and the labor force is sadly underpaid. which makes for a disparity in the evaluation of the work that is actually accomplished.
too little compensation, not enough room for advancement
Event Staff III (Former Employee) – Columbia, MO – October 17, 2018
By working for the Athletic Dept Event Staff one is able to work as much or as little as one wants.
With the availability to choose the event one wants to work, whether it is a basketball game, baseball, soccer, a concert, what ever the event may be they allow one to choose, or maybe a person wants some time off and doesn't want to work for a while that is ok as well.
It is really flexible and that makes it a really great place to work
Flexibility, Friendly Management
sometime the event may be in not so great weather but the event still goes on.
Telephone interviewer (Current Employee) – Columbia, MO – August 21, 2018
Easy place to work, but the pay is low and there are no raises. Some of the supervisor was great to work with. The training was consistent and thorough with regular reviews on how to improve your productivity.
Digital Marketing Assistant (Current Employee) – Columbia, MO – July 11, 2018
I love the management and the culture at the University of Missouri. I've learned more about the digital marketing world. The most enjoyable part of the job is how much there is to learn and how the management can grow with the student employees. The position is very flexible as well.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Columbia, MO – June 25, 2018
work culture was pleasant , but little room for advancement , unless additional education was submitted. i enjoyed my position and was certainly trained to the utmost standards. I had complete confidence in my handling daily tasks, such as dealing with insurance companies to secure prior-authorizations, and with patient communication, appointment setting, record keeping, and data entry.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – July 24, 2018
Use to be a decent place to work before new management. Very, unfair, cold, rude, racist, cutthroat environment now.
If you were not a clickish type person with your boss, you would have a hard time maintaining employment on campus. Lots of favoritism, and poor performance on all levels, because of poor leadership at the helms.
That and along with little funding creates the worst environment to work within. Meetings are conducted and before you return to your desk your supervisor already know what was said, especially, with HR.
The student center has restrooms without ventilation in the dining hall.
I've seen Rights of students violated often without students even realizing.
Engineering research tech (Former Employee) – Columbia, MO – August 8, 2018
No support for improvement no merit raises back stabbing and gossip and no team work also no merit raises for hard work unless you are A PhD you are nothing. They don't follow policy and there is no pay raise's
Executive Staff Assistant II, College of Education (Current Employee) – St. Louis, MO – November 5, 2018
Working at the university give me great pride to be part of the team. Also, I love working with the students and partnering school districts are engaging and innovation. The workplace culture is improving to satisfy more diverse committees for faculty/staff.
