Very fun workplace and caring about their employees
Certified Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Mobile, AL – November 1, 2018
I loved to come to work every day being able to care for patients and their families healthcare needs. It brought great joy to my heart that these families looked up to me and was glad that I could provide them with a loving and caring environment.
Wonderful environment for improving skills, learning teaching techniques, and engaging your career
Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – Mobile, AL – October 31, 2018
My time working at the University of South Alabama has helped me develop the necessary skills to perform as a professional within my given field. While the pay and benefit were not great, the environment, instruction, and opportunity were. I had so many good moments, where I felt that I made an impact on my fellow students and helped them reach their goals, while pursuing my own. I feel like the instructors make you feel like you are a part of the team, even when you are still working on figuring out your career path. They often encourage you to pursue various avenues of research and study that prove beneficial in future moments. When starting, I was unsure of how well I would do within my chosen field, but by the end, I felt like a valued member of the instruction staff, and I knew that my days working with them were what helped me become a better teacher and writing instructor. Overall, it was a fantastic experience that I would recommend to anyone.
Great place to work for those with families and small children
Secretary IV, Student Disability Services (Current Employee) – Mobile, AL – October 7, 2018
With the working hours of 8-5; I would recommend working at USA as it will allow time for before school care and after school care; and you are usually allowed to leave if your child becomes ill at school, etc.
Police Officer (Former Employee) – Mobile, AL – September 18, 2018
I enjoyed my two stints at the University Police Department and would go back. I was able to complete my degree and gain a lot of certifications that I probably would not have been privy to at other agencies. The work was mostly slow paced, college atmosphere with tons of overtime events.
Financial Aid Officer (Current Employee) – Mobile, AL – August 20, 2018
I love the people I work with, but I'm stagnating in my position, with no hope of advancement. At this point, I'm extremely overqualified for my job, and I'm ready to permanently relocate to the Northeast.
Collaborative work place that is growing and demanding.

Certified Athletic Trainer Assistant/Intern (Former Employee) – Mobile, AL – June 22, 2018
I would love to get on full time, it was a competitive yet friendly environment , with type A people throughout. My supervisor was awesome and took the time to teach me and to guide me in the right direction. I wouldn't have traded my experience at South Alabama for any other, it was a blessing to land the internship.
Financial Counselor (Former Employee) – Mobile, AL – May 25, 2018
I don't mind the work that I was paid to perform. My issue is with management. Management shows favoritism and all rules do not apply to all personnel. I work hard with little to no supervision but the manager does not appreciate work done. The employees that are favored come in late and leave early but she expects others to work more.
SURVEYOR (Former Employee) – South Alabama, AL – May 22, 2018
I worked with the Polling Group calling locals about the BP oil spill. The job was simple and proceeded as expected. Some people cooperated while others grew irate and rude. You were able to pick your own hours which was great because I was a full time student. The only downside is the fact that it was grant based. You were out of work until someone received a grant to proceed with the research.
Graduate Assistant (Former Employee) – South Alabama, AL – May 4, 2018
