Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – New Haven, CT – February 15, 2019
I worked for Yale University back in the '80s, but then my family moved to Massachusetts and I wasn't quite ready to strike out on my own yet and so I had to leave. I was an administrative assistant and the job was rewarding and I felt like I was part of a dynamic team. I'm trying to return to work there now.

Politics play a huge role in your future at Yale. It does not matter how many years of experience you have or if your qualified and perform to the best of your capability, politics will move you right out of your position.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – New Haven, CT – October 14, 2016
I worked in a busy fast paced environment, answering phones and involved with handling multiple schedules for our Doctors and appointments for our patients. I learned to be more organized and proficient in various tasks. My co-workers were professional team players who assisted me when needed. The hardest part of my job was not being able to squeeze patients into an already full clinic. My Doctors demonstrated quality time with their patients and did not want to overbook them in order to give them the time and attention they needed. The most enjoyable part of my job was feeling as if I made a difference in the patient's care and would often get rewarded by their appreciative, grateful spirit!
I have learned a great deal at Yale unfortunately the sign of the times took over.

My position was a very busy one in the slide room. I would retrieve slides for cases pertaining to patients having surgery and on the table for comparison. I retrieved slides for Conferences and Tumor Boards. Filing was a major part of the position.
Interaction with other medical facilities to ask for Yale's material back when patient requested it to be sent out for a 2nd opinion. I would prepare the slides & send them Federal Express.
Also did transcription when department was very busy and covered the front desk when someone was out and or at break.
ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT/OFFICE MANAGER (Former Employee) – New Haven, CT – December 31, 2015
During those years at the University, I advanced rather quickly through the ranks. By the end of my employment there, I was the only support staff to 4 different directors. Each director was responsible for different aspects of the departments (basketball; fundraising; alumni support; grant-writing; publications; etc.). It was fast paced and fun at the same time.
Learned new skills almost daily.
Learned new skills daily and had to keep pace with different divisions.

I enjoyed working on assignment at Yale University. A typical day on at work was very busy. The phones rang non-stop through out the day, scheduling was a huge part of my day. The hardest part of the job was when I couldn't answer a patient's question immediately because I lacked information. The most enjoyable part of the job was simply being present and thankful that I was able to help out when needed.

I had the best experience ever working for a boss that wanted to offer me so many advancements, but time did not permit. I was only a temp but i am sure if they were not sold to Yale New Haven Hospital I would have still been there today.

Busy day working for so many full-time professors and part-time professors, most were easy to get along with others very demanding. My co-workers worked with other professors but when needed, were very helpful and nice. The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing that my day was very productive.
loved this job, quite challenging at times. benefits were fabulous.
