BSC (Former Employee) – Charlotte, NC – December 6, 2018
There are some great people performing excellent work there. I don't want to generalize too broadly, as the work culture in which I worked may not have been the same in other parts of the university. Across campus, there are often job vacancies, which offers opportunities for growth and advancement, but it also means that in the interim other employees are required to pick up those duties. They typically receive no additional compensation for doing so.
Pay raises are rare, while the cost of living steadily increases. My manager was rude and under-qualified. Most promotional job opportunities are pre-selected, so save your time applying. Cost pf parking is outrageous. Co-workers are set in their ways and resistant to changes (improvements).
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.
UNC Charlotte is a great place to work and they really help develop their staff. The health care coverage is pretty good but is slightly declining per the cost like many other places. the retirement benefits are great.
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.

3rd Shift Building Environmental Supervisor (Former Employee) – Charlotte, NC – July 26, 2018
Fast pace environment. Team work is essential. Essential employees required to come to work in all weather conditions. Benefits begin beginning of the next month. Shoes and uniforms provided. Gathering take place so you can socialise with other employees.
UNC Charlotte is exploding! Each year there are more and more students attending so there is much to do. The administrative is supportive, the professional development opportunities are plentiful, and the benefits are top notch.
I worked my tail off cleaning tables of filthy students, every day for a weekly amount of $150/week.
Orderly (Former Employee) – Charlotte, NC – November 1, 2018
I worked my tail off cleaning tables of filthy students, and taking out the heavy bags of trash, every day for a weekly amount of $150/week. It was not worth it in my opinion. The only good thing about my old job was my manager was quite attractive.
A typical day at work would start early in the morning teaching students from 8am-11am. Review lesson plans, gave quizzes, also implemented disciplinary approaches to problems in class. Hold after office hours for students with questions about class.
