Project Manager/Designer (Former Employee) – Orem, UT – September 12, 2018
Working at Campus Connection at UVU was a great experience for me! It gave me so much opportunity to do academic activities, get experience in graphic design and to get to know my follow class members more. Even though there is so much to know at that job with low pay, it was great having a job on campus to save me time and money going to my classes. Unfortunately you can only work there if you're going to school there.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Orem, UT – September 8, 2018
If you’re staff you are micromanaged and don’t get compensated properly. Favoritism runs rampant within the university. Seems rather difficult to advance. No training for new employees. Hopefully this new president will shake things up. They used to be flexible with hours but not anymore so you can might be the only person working in your area at certain times. Students are amazing to work with though.
Low pay, micromanaging, lack of safety, faculty treat you poorly
Information Technology Technician (Former Employee) – Orem, UT – August 29, 2018
Your mileage may vary as quality of positions greatly depend on what part of the university you work for, and whom you work under. I personally had a great experience working their as a temp, helping to maintain computer systems and projectors.
Helping customers and maintaining a clean environment.
Line Server (Former Employee) – Valley View Cafeteria – August 28, 2018
In a typical work day I enjoyed helping and serving the customers. I like to interact with people, and this helped me to learn more skills. Sometimes there were stressful hours, but I had a good work supervisor.
CENTRAL STOCKROOM WORKER (Former Employee) – Orem, UT – August 23, 2018
My tasks usually consists of entering chemical compounds in the campus database. Occasionally, I would assist in keeping track of equipment being loaned to students for projects.
The management isn't too outrageous, and the supervisor is very helpful in training for the duties I was assigned.
The workplace is relaxing, and it can give me plenty of opportunities to catch up on schoolwork.
The hardest part of the job would be ordering equipment the faculty would need to use for their classes. The most enjoyable part would be to interact with the students and see their enthusiasm for learning.
Recycler (Former Employee) – Orem, UT – August 21, 2018
I loved working at UVU. It was very convenient being able to work there as well as go to school there. The job I did allowed me to be able to drive a truck which made it really nice and fun. And I was able to pick my own hours which helped a lot with my school scheduled. The only thing that was bad was basically the management I guess. I did recycling and while there it felt like UVU does not really care about recycling. It also didn't help that it felt like I was doing more then what I was getting payed. There are a lot of things that need to change about the recycling "department". This job can be somewhat frustrating but overall it was one of the best jobs I had and the most fun.
Test Proctor (Former Employee) – Orem, UT 84058 – August 6, 2018
I liked working for the testing center the only problem is that I didn't make enough money and I don't think I was paid enough for the stuff that I had to do and deal with but if you're living at home and you're looking for extra money during the school year I would highly reccomend it. It's easy to make friends with your coworkers and the job itself isn't difficult once you're trained.
Technician III (Former Employee) – Orem, UT – August 2, 2018
UVU isn't the highest rung on the career ladder, but it's a rock solid place to work. I've seen some not succeed here and they had their own issues to sort out that they brought to work. If you're a good worker, with a good attitude, a good ethic, generally competent, and hate the mistreatment of corporate jobs, you'll like UVU's culture.
Good opportunities, good culture, good pace, good benefits.
Pay is always an issue. I don't know how students even get by.
Was a fine work environment, trouble with middle management.
Interim Secondary Education Field Coordinator (Former Employee) – Orem, UT – July 23, 2018
I enjoyed a majority of my time there- it's an excellent university and a great atmosphere for students. I just couldn't feel myself growing there as a professional individual. There were some issues with management and accountability that created a more uncomfortable environment by my last year there.
Many adjunct faculty are fired as punishment for cavalier things or to hire friends in their place. I know four in four departments in the last two years.. Excellent teachers with good track records. Too much power is given untrained people to manager adjuncts, their schedules and livelihoods, and they truthfully do not care a bit!
The students are amazing, generally diligent and hardworking.
Damaging, sometimes cruel, mismanagement of adjunct faculty by untrained full-time faculty.. Personal political agenda.
Lecturer (Current Employee) – McKay School of Education – July 5, 2018
Focus on teaching, nice colleagues, excellent environment, students are wonderful I'd like to earn more because I work hard. My students love and appreciate all I do and all I teach them. I learn from them.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Orem, UT – June 28, 2018
UVU is a great place to work in many ways. There is innovation and advancement. One draw back is I feel that faculty feel above those who do not have the piece of paper they do and treat those employees as such.

Academic Science Tutor and Private Tutor: (Current Employee) – Orem, UT – May 26, 2018
The tutoring lab was professional, peaceful, and fun. SCUP and the Stem summer program were exceptional outreach programs. My Supervisor was professional. The University goal is to have a positive workplace and educate employment.
