Encouraging workplace with little room for financial growth
Secretary III (Current Employee) – Rochester, NY – March 14, 2018
As with most higher-ed jobs, the pay is lacking. I was told upon hire that the minimum they could offer me was $10.40, but I shouldn't worry, because they believe in paying their employees a livable wage. That was very true when I lived at home with my parents, but since moving out on my own, I do not make enough to pay minimal bills.
The environment is wonderful here, and I wouldn't consider leaving (even for a second) if it weren't a matter of needing a larger income. People are encouraging, helpful, welcoming and warm. The campus is stunning. Parking is rough, but the University provides shuttles. The benefits are fantastic, very affordable, tuition and homeowners incentive are remarkable.
