Productive workplace with good people that work there.
Lifeguard (Former Employee) – Knoxville, TN – September 25, 2018
Was a very fun work environment. They teach you that being on your phone while working is not allowed whatsoever. The people that surround you, wether it be the co-workers or the people swimming in the pool, make it a very fun place to work.
good co-workers, learned how to save lives, and cpr certification
Community Service Officer (CSO) (Former Employee) – Knoxville, TN – September 25, 2018
When i first started we were primarily parking enforcement. So typical day was walking parking lots all day, but after my second year there we didn't do parking enforcement anymore. We were mostly extra patrol for the campus for safety and security. Best part about the job was helping those that were stuck because their keys were locked in their car or their battery was dead, we would come and boost them off or unlock their car for them.
Research Assistant (Current Employee) – Knoxville, TN – September 19, 2018
I start my work at 8:30 am and leave for home around 8:00 pm. I usually read papers and do some experiments during days. Sometime I have to take the seminar or meet with my advisor. It's a nice place to work and live. I can have flexible time to balance my work and life. I have freedom to arrange my experiments. The hardest part of the job is I cannot perform my experiments because the equipment is out of work, which make me upset. The most enjoyable part of the job is I can obtain what I want from the experiments, i.e. good results or solving problems.
Administrative Assistant III (Current Employee) – Knoxville, TN – September 4, 2018
I worked at UT because the benefits are amazing. I also am accustomed to the culture here at UT although it isn't for everyone. I find those who grew up in this area are probably more suited to the environment here. Its very conservative in all aspects.
Free Classes, Constantly Accruing PTO and Sick Days
Postdoc Research Associate (Former Employee) – Knoxville, TN – September 1, 2018
The typical day of work was very satisfing. You were allowed to persue and acomplish tasks with minimal supervision. Managemant and the workplace were great. The hardest part of the job was to solicit money for research. Learning new skills was the most enjoyable part of the job.
Undergraduate Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Chattanooga, TN – August 1, 2018
Good institution with supportive professors at a reasonable cost (given current rates for larger schools).. Highly recommend chemistry degree route if that's your cup of tea, the department is highly funded and has experienced professors (particularly Dr Steve Symes) that know how to help you figure it 'out'
I tutored Spanish since Spring 2012, but was actually paid by the school as a supplemental instructor my final semester Fall 2014. I had to make lesson plans, hold group sessions, do one on one tutoring and attend every Spanish I class so I could stay up to date on what they were learning.
The students that utilized my service passed the class
They take care of their employs very well and compensate for everyone
Janitor (Former Employee) – Knoxville, TN – July 15, 2018
I think UT is a very friendly environment and everyone is a hard worker but it is something special because it is seen as the big orange family and thats how everyone treated each other as a family. There was nothing really wrong with it, I just happen to be moving for my own reason, but I would most definitely recommend this job to friends and family.
Client Service Representative (Former Employee) – Veterinary college – July 15, 2018
I worked there for 1 year and and was never given the time of day. I worked until midnight every night I was there and I had no benefits at all. Was told it would change and a year later Was let go. How things are handled are very political and as long as they are getting money, they do not care about their staff unless they have been there 10+ years. I would not recommend working there.
