I did not find my employment particularly enjoyable
Medical Illustrator (Former Employee) – Chapel Hill, NC – February 14, 2019
I worked in two different departments for UNC. One department had a deplorable manager who micromanaged each employee to the detriment of production and growth. The second department had a wonderful manager and the opposite was true. I benefited from changing departments greatly.
UNC Charlotte is a diverse institution with numerous departments dedicated to enhancing services for our adult and working students. Like any college, there are problems with the administration, but the Academic Support offices in particular are forward-thinking and effective.

While the institution is great, the inability to effectively reprimand employees who behave poorly because of State Employee status, drives away real talent that is beneficial to the institutions bottom line.
Overall, good benefits.
State employee pay stipulations with minimal ability for raises.
Supervised the maintenance of dorms in UNCC applying the concepts of facilities management. Coordinated with inventory manager for material procurement and documentation of inventory supply. Assessed quality inspection for repairs and MEP components. Conducted facility condition assessment and presented results to the supervisor
Operations&Program Manager-Customer Svc (Former Employee) – Chapel Hill, NC – September 9, 2018
This university believes in putting degrees first when sometime talent should be included as well as hard work and skill. Advancing upward is a challenging and slow process and a little frustrating. Without listing my salary, it still wasn't enough to continue living on the outskirts of Chapel Hill unless you were a Director upward, had a roommate, two incomes or family that supported or supplemented your income. This was my experience. I think I made the right choice to retire early because my health was declining and I wanted to visit other areas of careers that utilized my talents and build back healthy choices and lifestyles. Salary as well as growth, respect and appreciation should go both ways no matter who you are. I'm thankful for the experience and friendships along the way and know I left my footprint in a positive way with great memories to share.
Research Associate (Former Employee) – Chapel Hill, NC – September 4, 2018
UNC/Chapel Hill offers itself as a work place with appealing & not so appealing features. Its management is generally lax and business processes sluggish. Communications within and between departments are often siloed, and potential for cross-collaboration is often left untapped. This scenario is found often enough in most universities, but one would hope that UNC/Chapel Hill could honestly self-assess and make itself an exception to the rule of campus fiefdoms as a way of work life.
Solid technical staff who are mostly team players
Management skills in deficient supply across the campus
Research/Program Assistant, Web Designer (Former Employee) – Chapel Hill, NC – August 27, 2018
This experience opened my eyes to the medical side of diversity and inclusion. Conducting research on underrepresented minorities in different medical departments was exactly what I had in mind doing my internship.
University Administrator (Zone Manager) (Current Employee) – Chapel Hill, NC – August 14, 2018
My job at UNC Chapel Hill is a job that provides oppurtunities to advance through out UNC not just within the department that I work. Upper managemnet is always train us to so we have the skills and knowledge to advance our careers. My job as a Zone Manager really isnt difficult in my eyes. I walk through my 7 buildings checking on my staff to make sure their areas are clean, make sure they follow the processes put in place and they have what they need to get there jobs done. The hardest part about my job right now is the hours. 3rd shift is starting to take its toll on me. The most enjoyable part of my job is the flexibilty and the peolpe. There is such a wide variety of people with different backgrounds and different experiences.
Cert Nursing Assistant I / Emergency Room Tech (Current Employee) – Chapel Hill, NC 27516 – August 1, 2018
Never enough help. The ED is getting to be more psych than medical. State hospital, has to take ALL ppl. Tired of getting beat up by psych pt's. Great hospital security, you REALLY get to know hospital police & security when working psych I the ED. A job you will never forget. Good & Bad.
Great learning exp. state pension, a lot of overtime
A typical day at the Center for New North Carolinians was very rewarding. I learned so much about cultural competence, the refugee population in North Carolina, and how a successful non-profit functions.Management is excellent. They are all very positive and forward thinking. The culture within this organization is very diverse. There are people from all different cultures and backgrounds. They people that work for CNNC are positive in their attitude and are able to bring their best selves to the people they serve. The hardest part of my job was having to wait to get the results I wanted. The work itself was enjoyable.
I worked there one year. I don't think I took advantage of everthing UNC had to offer.
Research Technician (Former Employee) – Chapel Hill, NC – July 4, 2018
As an organization, I'm sure it's a great place but I only worked there one year and was not able to continue working there. If you are not vested in the company, your 401k contributions don't really stay with you unless you start at another university within a year. My specific work experience wasn't that great and I doubt it has advanced my career any but again, it doesn't have to do with UNC as an organization.
Grunt (Current Employee) – Chapel Hill, NC – June 19, 2018
Director is an insecure micromanager that is scared to let people do their job. If you know more than the manager, you're a threat. Director is always dreaming up new ways to boost their image, and if you're not supporting that cause, you are punished. The management staff is great and lower level personnel are all great too. The director ruins the whole environment. Great, qualified people are pushed out and the director gets a raise and a promotion to further gut the program. If you like a director that is a malicious, rude, belittling micromanager, apply here!
