Productive and welcoming environment with a ping pong table
Program Assistant (Current Employee) – Portland, ME – February 6, 2019
I take care the daily tasks within the program and faculty. Completing some jobs that are HR detailed to collecting students work and sharing it on education sites. The job in itself is so much better because of the boss I have. She goes up and beyond her job to make sure I am all set and is very understanding when something personal happens.
Great boss, cafe on site, walking distant to starbucks
low pay, open office environment, no privacy for conversations
Housekeeping (Current Employee) – Biddeford, ME – October 10, 2018
Cleaning offices, vacuuming, cleaning bathrooms. Night supervisor follows arounds to keep a eye on me to make sure I am doing my job. I feel like I am in high school she always where I am on the radio and what have I done, why I have not worked with so and so. Asking security to check on me and make sure I am where I say I am. I go in and do my job help my co-workers.
Laboratory Technician (Former Employee) – Biddeford, ME – August 20, 2018
UNE is constantly growing and trying to change with the times. They are a good institution that treats its people fairly well and encourages you to take classes and better yourself. Medical benefits are generous. Sometimes they grow in the wrong direction in their vigor to change.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Biddeford, ME – July 19, 2018
The responsibilities of the job itself were fine, collecting membership dues, teaching classes, overseeing and training of students. Supervisor was not very attentive. He would never give clear, concise instruction, and there was no training. He did however make sure you knew when you did something incorrect yet never told you how to resolve the issue.
A great opportunity for internships and fellowships
Outreach Coordinator (Current Employee) – Biddeford, ME – June 25, 2018
UNE is a great opportunity for students looking to work in a fun but competitive environment in many different fields. I recommend the internships and fellowships that UNE provides. If you are looking for meaningful experiences as a student, or looking to create your own opportunities, this is the place for you!
Assistant Professor (Former Employee) – Biddeford, ME – May 18, 2018
Our newly implemented promotion and tenure policy was unfair because it was an "up or out" policy. That is, if you did not get promotion to associate professor after 6 years, you were terminated. It was a very bad policy and it was changed the very next year because faculty could not rise to the promotion level. There was a lack of research facilities. Our Biology department was combined with Chemistry and Physics. The biology faculty created a learning community for all freshman students majoring in the sciences. Creating new courses was fun but challenging.
Learning community, location on the Saco River mouth where it joins the sea, great department chair, and faculty who really worked together.
Work Study Student (Current Employee) – Biddeford, ME – April 3, 2018
You are able to come in and once you get your work done, which is very easy , you can do your homework. The people here are very nice and helpful. There is no stress, and is the perfect job for a college student that goes to school at UNE.
Resident Advisor (RA) (Former Employee) – Biddeford, ME – March 1, 2018
The University of New England truly cares about their student employees. They will be good references for later in life, and will listen to your needs while in school and support you through your advances in education.
Special events and publications manager (Former Employee) – Biddeford, ME – October 13, 2017
There were so many things about my job that I enjoyed. The people were wonderful. Too many things to list that I learned to list. My supervisors were all the best. The hardest part of the job was leaving.
Masters Degree Candidate (Current Employee) – Biddeford, ME – July 17, 2017
I received several small grants over the course of my student career at UNE. Unfortunately, they all paid 8$ an hour, and the stipulation of taking one grant was that you were unable to receive it the next year. My Master's degree did not come with a stipend, although most did. However, I learned a lot and enjoyed my time working there.
CLINICAL INSTRUCTOR (Current Employee) – Portland, ME – July 12, 2017
I love working at the University of New England because I enjoy teaching. It is a way of giving back and also keeping up with the evolving world that is dentistry and dental hygiene. There are different challenges each day on the clinic floor which is exciting and educational for the students and myself. Working as an instructor encouraged me to go back and obtain my Master's degree, which I now have.
