A typical day at work stated very positive. I learned to be a team player, communicated with all types of individuals. Was able to interact with professor and staff and students in a learning environment. Management showed direction and quidance. Workplace culture was moviating. The hardest part new students lost and trying to get them to the right class room on time. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to graduation after completion of four year degree.
Being exposed to learning environment and communicating with Professors and students
Balancing duties that required more time than one had.
My internship working at UNM gave me the opportunity to take what I learned in class and apply it to real projects at a large scope. I was able to network with peers and professors and it helped me in my efforts to find a job after graduation.
Difficult place to write grants for funding given that the grant itself was not reviewed by advisor.
Adjunct Assistant Professor (Former Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – September 18, 2018
My advisor gave me little or no help in preparing a grant for funding. In addition, I never felt part of the department of biology or mathematics, which made it more difficult to get advice on grant preparation.
Training Support Analyst, CHW Team (Former Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – September 10, 2018
The organization could be so much better if it had better middle and upper management. The organization is turning a new leaf and moving towards a value-based approach of operations and maybe in time, those values will start to be placed into practice.
Program Manager (Former Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – September 2, 2018
I enjoyed working at the School of Law and was given opportunities to advance. Classes were offered to help as a teaching aide. I also like the fact that I could attend classes at the University and my dependents could as well.
Assistant Athletic Director (Former Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – September 2, 2018
All administrators were exempt! Meaning the Athletic department could work you 24/7 while being a salary employee! I loved the University setting. I loved the college environment but had a hard time being married and on call to address athletic concerns 24/7 but other than that, great job with great benefits!
This job is so fun, I wish there were more hours. Acting / role playing being a patient for medical, nursing, and pharmacy students is fun and rewarding. Management is understanding as long as a line of communication is open.
Accountant II (Former Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – August 29, 2018
Review and approve expenditure documents. Reconcile depository accounts. Enjoyed working for my Supervisors and getting to know upper management. Employee moral was pretty good. Really enjoyed working at the different departments on campus.
I worked in the university as a student. I worked both in the Museum of Southwestern biology and as a TA and as a Research Assistant. working with the university provides excellent experience for the future.
Office Manager, Department of Teacher Education (Former Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – August 13, 2018
I spent a lot of time here working to further one departments agenda and ability to work with students. It was a great experience and a great learning opportunity for the workings of an organization within an organization.
The scheduling is very flexible, job transferring is painless, jobs provide real-world experience and career skills in various industries. All of my supervisors and co-workers were friendly, helpful, and wanted you to succeed.
Overall, the department was supportive of its graduate teaching students, but the school and the university should look at paying graduate students a living wage for the work they do. It's helpful to have insurance and tuition benefits. More professional development wold also be helpful, but there are opportunities for recognition.
Adjunct instructors also need to be recognized as part of the department, provided with more opportunities, and afforded a living wage.
