Administrative Support Associate (Current Employee) – Charlotte, NC – July 19, 2018
I enjoy working at UNC Charlotte. The pay is considerably lower, but it is to be expected at a State job. The benefits, however, are extraordinary, so it's six in one hand, half dozen in the other. There is plenty of room for growth, the hardest part is just getting your foot in the door. This is feasible if you start working as a temp there. One issue is that this place is growing without enough employees.
Benefits, Hours, Growth / Improvement Opportunities, Free Classes, HR Training
Low pay (unless you're a professor), High Growth Without Catching UP
Undergraduate Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Charlotte, NC – July 15, 2018
It was just a fellowship, so I only worked for one summer. It depends who you were assigned to work for and I worked with Raspberry Pi robot. It was stressful because I knew nothing about Raspberry Pi or the robotics.

FA STUDENT SERVICE SPECIALIST (Current Employee) – Charlotte, NC – July 2, 2018
University of North Carolina at Charlotte is a great company to work for. I loved working with people that were there to improve themselves. I am a strong believer in self growth.There are definitely some cost to working in hire education, the biggest being sacrafice of a competative salary for that area, and employees having to pay over $600 a year to park. Your insurance is covered but the quality of insurance has steadily declined year over year. Also, working in hire education you must obtain a masters degree for advancement. This is understandable working in hire education what is not is that only 2 classes are covered a year. In most degree paths you must be taking more than 6 hours a year leaving you on the hook for the other 6 hours.
I enjoyed working in the University environment, however, I could not longer afford to work there and live in the area.
As graduate teaching assistant, I got to experience a variety of things such as teaching, grading papers, clarifying doubts, mentoring students, reinforcing my knowledge in statistics, production management, et .
Had a great time working with UTOP and B3. Students were engaged and helping them get acclimated tot the campus was a great opportunity. Although GAs don't get paid enough thhe experiences is sometimes worth it.
The Work environment was very close knit and easy going. All the instructors were very close with one another and they helped each other whenever it was needed. The management and employees were all respectful of one another, understanding, and generally cared about what was going on in each other lives. This was the best job I ever had, fun to work with class participants and with coworkers.
Most are over worked, under paid and under appreciated. The state system is very controlling and the atmosphere across campus is negative. It is a difficult environment to work in and the expectations are high, salary is significantly lower than market.
The only positives are the time off and retirement. Health benefits are costly with high deductibles and copays.
I have worked as an intern at facilities management for the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. I organized and logged inventory and installed equipment along with managing and receiving shipments of goods and filling out shipment logs.
