    Former Employee - Maintenance Specialist in Storrs, CT

    I worked at University of Connecticut full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Minimal work, managers didn't care if we were there or not. Pay was pretty good. We played monopoly a lot.

    Cons

    Getting up early in the morning was tough. Not a ton a room for career advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep a better eye on employees. We literally played monopoly 4 days out of the week
