I don't see a very bright future for UW, unfortunately. That is not to say that the potential isn't great, but the government has stripped so much away from the universities, collectively that many have lost great educators, talent and even entire programs to other states that support higher education. What do families with two educator households do when one loses their job due to budget constraints? This is the reality of several WI families who are now living as long-distance families.
When school was active, around 4 hours/day. When school was out, I went for 8. They needed the help with projects and reconstruction.
The inability of PhDs to find f/t positions - one can take 10% and 20% teaching jobs for only so long before finally giving up academia, altogether. WI's state support of its universities has eroded to such an extent that the entire system is nearly bloodless. I didn't work for years for my credentials only to be offered temp work for peanuts. It is demoralizing.
Basic questions: computer skills, experience with customer service, understanding of medical programs, etc.
I looked forward to going to this job everyday. It was a job I truly enjoyed going to.
What is the vacation policy like at University of Wisconsin? How many vacation days do you get per year?
Nice vacation policy for full-time employees; I believe you earn up to 3 PTO weeks in a calendar year.
