Bookstore Attendant (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – July 8, 2018
A typical day at work at Union bookstore is busy, a better word for that , I would say is a consistant learning experience. The hardest part about the job is , redoing students college cards if something is wrong with it. I've Iearned that many different walks of life can be come to a place where it has many possibilities.

Counselor (Current Employee) – Richmond, VA – April 9, 2018
It's not a good place to work. The salary is very low. I have a masters degree and I don't even make $ 40,000. The culture is the students have a tendency to submit information late, and nothing is done about it. The management is new and a lot of changes have been implemented that aren't going to work due to the culture. I don't feel as though it's job security. The new management plan to outsource a lot of jobs in the near future.

School of Arts and Sciences Computer Lab Director (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – July 12, 2017
This university is not a safe and secure working environment for anyone white. Because it is a historically black university your abilities and education mean nothing unless you're black. You can not file for vacation time without being given the run around to every department but the one you need, and complaints about student misuse of the lab environment falls on deaf ears.

Excellent culture for higher education; private institution. The University offers great benefits. The Acting President is a professional, caring, knowledgeable man of optimal integrity. The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting and helping people. The hardest part of the job currently is being micromanaged. A typical day at work would include resolving staff and faculty issues by phone, in person or by email; preparing payroll information including tax status changes, salary changes, address changes, etc.; assisting new hires with completing paperwork; attending unemployment hearings; completing employment verifications; preparing Excel spreadsheets; compiling new hire and termination reports for management; preparing disbursement vouchers; auditing bills for benefit compensation and all other projects as assigned.

Director of Purchasing (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – May 12, 2017
A typical day at work consists of prioritizing what needs to be done and accomplishing your goals that you set for the week and the day. I always try to learn as much about the job as possible and seek opinions from my colleagues. Teamwork is an important part of any job however I have no problem working alone as needed. I love customer service and interaction with external as well as internal parties.
Holidays off, good benefits and room for advancement
