I have been employed here for 31 plus years. I have held many different positions and each one was better than the last. It is awesome to be able to change jobs without leaving the company. Excellent pay, benefits and work life balance.
Graphic Designer (Former Employee) – West Haven, CT – March 6, 2019
I worked here full time while going to school full time as well. I was given a task that would have normally been done by a team. Somehow I managed to complete the task despite having zero working knowledge of anything I had to do.
Banquet Server/ Bartender (Former Employee) – New Haven, CT – February 26, 2019
My job as banquet server involved after check in was regular catering. I received bartender training which was able to be used outside of the job on a regular environment. The hardest part of the job might have been cleaning up after events. But the initial job is straight forward. You come in and serve the guests the food that was prepared by the onsite chef.
Athletic Dept. - Operations Assistant (Former Employee) – New Haven, CT – February 6, 2019
I worked on a temporary, part-time basis for Yale during their Calendar year for sporting events. On a typical day, I would either collect tickets or help out with sporting events. I would also help customers with any questions or concerns. I think the bosses were very respectful and I would recommend anyone to work for them. The only thing about the job that I didn't like was the management and at times it felt very unorganized.

Research Assistant (Former Employee) – New Haven, CT – January 11, 2019
It has been the greatest best experience to have worked at Yale University. Great place for advancement, learning, networking Excellent benefits Union oriented The hardest and most stressful part of working here is being laid off at the Interim Employment Pool. Although they pay full salary and benefits during the 6-18 month period in it, if another position is not found within that period then unfortunately you are out. It is the first time in 12 years that it has happened to me.
Most of the work was done in the home with the family which was Great

Safety Advisor (Former Employee) – New Haven, CT – December 2, 2018
The office where I worked had a white board with magnetic dots to ‘’track” where each employee was at any given time. Clearly this office has very little trust in its employees. The name of the game here ‘ who can I blame today to make myself look good’ . This place is a dream for bullies - you can yell, demean and humiliate people as much as you want. Such unprofessionlism would be called out at any other place - but here it actually makes the person get a ‘ employee of the year’ award. Such is the travesty of this office.
IT (Media Technician) (Current Employee) – New Haven, CT – November 20, 2018
At Yale University, I am a media tech for the Center of Language Study. It is a relaxed environment with helpful faculty. My responsibilities on a day to day may vary. It includes computer set-ups, to troubleshooting video equipment. I'm always on my feet, but that's what I enjoy most. The most enjoyable part of the job is the fact that I'm constantly helping people. A lot of times professors need last minute support to show presentations to classes or have meetings and I would come and make sure the video and audio are functioning.
