Wonderful working for a large university.

Student Contact Representative (Former Employee)
Denton, TX

I worked at University of North Texas full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe biggest pro to working for UNT is the insurance benefits and paid time off. Generally whenever class is not in session most office are closed, this is in addition to your paid vacation and sick leave. Most of the amenities that are available to the students are available to employees, some with a modest fee but nothing compared to what you would pay off campus.

ConsThe biggest con about working at UNT was the fact that it is extremely difficult to be promoted upwardly rather than laterally. I was there from July 2007 to January 2011 and ended with the same position and salary I started with. I applied for over 45 jobs throughout the campus and received only a handful of interviews and no other offers. This is the same for just about all of my coworkers. My position could not even be expanded so that I could be offered a larger salary, you get what you start with. The only reason I no longer work at UNT was because I had no future there. It is deplorable in my opinion to work four years in one job with no promotion nor salary increase.

Advice to Senior ManagementLook more closely at employees that have been with you for years to promote rather than consistently looking outside the university.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
