Great work environment

Former Employee - Circulation Assistant  in  Durham, NC
Former Employee - Circulation Assistant in Durham, NC

I worked at Duke University part-time for less than a year

Pros

Duke is a great place to work as a student. There are tons of job opportunities on campus. Working as a Circulation Assistant at Perkins Library is typically coveted by both undergraduates and grad students because you basically get paid to work on homework.

Pros
-laid-back environment
-able to do homework at work
-easy work

Cons

-pay was kind of low, but i was a student working part-time anyway
-nothing else really

    Current Employee - Postdoctoral Associate in Durham, NC

    I have been working at Duke University full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Taught me to work more independently and rely on myself.

    Cons

    Terrible administration. They made life very difficult. Ranomly will lose your insurance, or not get paid one month, or lose an opportunity because someone failed to compltete a form on time. I wish it was an irregular occurrance, but it's not. It happens to everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire detail-oriented people. Educate them on how to do their job properly, and have consequences for them if they fail. This university has a name to uphold, and it will lose that standing if it doesn't start cari g for its employees through better administation.

    Pros

    Great environment with the university and its resources.

    Some labs can be very small with very few people. May not be the best for those who like a younger environment.
