    I worked at Xavier University as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    My supervisor and her assistant we amazing people to work with. They were both very kind and considerate.
    The hours were very flexible (I basically made my own).
    It felt very rewarding to help students

    Cons

    Sometimes working with students could be very difficult as they could become very emotional (angry or upset) over their situation.

    Former Employee - Customer Relations Assistant in Cincinnati, OH
    Former Employee - Customer Relations Assistant in Cincinnati, OH

    I worked at Xavier University part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Worked in the Office of Admission. Fun and friendly staff, flexible schedule, and monthly trainings/weekly meetings. Working with the students applying to the university was great, very rewarding to help a student make the right choice in attending XU.

    Cons

    Petty drama was a given, which was frustrating and sometimes limited collaboration with other staff members. Though office culture was friendly, some staff turned it into an opportunity to form cliques, making it a less-than-warm environment for any targets of their childlike behavior. Pretty avoidable if you made the effort to be nice to everyone, do your work, and stay away from after-work outings.

    Former Employee - Assistant Director in Cincinnati, OH
    Former Employee - Assistant Director in Cincinnati, OH

    I worked at Xavier University full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The tuition remission is great! For undergraduate and graduate including MBA programs. Flexible schedule in certain departments (especially when students are not on campus in the Summer). Good benefits.

    Cons

    Long hours for certain departments, need to be available nights and weekend if you are in certain departments. Not great work-life balance. Not great leadership vision for the future. Small to no pay increases year to year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Conflicting messaging to employees. No transparency.

    Former Employee - Sports Information Assistant in Cincinnati, OH

    I worked at Xavier University part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    First hand experience in a DI NCAA athletic department, a lot of responsibility for interns that comes along with great perks. A lot of individual work but always someone around to help you out if you're stuck or want to clear something up. Xavier just joined the Big East so there is a lot of excitement on campus and in Athletics.

    Cons

    A lot of work and time dedicated to the job. I put in over 630 hours in the 2012-13 school year alone. Definitely has to be your first priority and can get monotonous at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None, very well supervised and provided a ton of assistance and leadership in helping me learn a ton about college athletics.

    Consider the Benefits

    I have been working at Xavier University

    Pros

    The benefit of tuition remission is the best part about working at Xavier. Another perk is that employees get basketball tickets. There are also many dedicated people that have worked at Xavier for years.

    Cons

    The salaries are low but consider the benefits. There have been job reductions over the past year. Moral has been low. Difficult to get promoted and move into higher positions.
