  • Sick Days  (17 comments)

    “We do have a substitute if you need a sick leave. The good news is that it is paid.”

  • Tuition Assistance  (7 comments)

    “I am a part time instructor this is no such kind of tuition assistance for me. This may be offered if you are a graduate student.”

  • Family Medical Leave  (4 comments)

    “Their classification of "family members" applies to extended family members and even grandparents, which is nice.”

    The best thing is you can learn a lot new staff and the students are very diverse. Also, the department faculty and staff are very nice.

    As a student, my benefits only include tuition assistance. I am only a part time and conditional employee. Most of my work is done remotely.

    For full-time employees, the vacation benefit is top notch - two days per month, accrued each month except June for a total of 22 days per year. The university closes for a full week between Christmas and New Year's Day. Unpaid leave is available in accordance with FMLA regulations. Health insurance benefits are good, but vary depending upon your job classification (there are four). Standard health care is available on site at regular prices, so many employees use other local health care options. How flexible the work hours are depends upon the position and much is up to the discretion of the planning unit heads, which can be good if you have a reasonable manager but sometimes does not feel fair. If you have sick leave available, you can use it as bereavement time. The educational benefit is good and there are on-site gyms, but the largest one is reserved primarily for student use and the smaller one that is targeted toward employees is not free. There also is an employee wellness program.

    You have 15 days off in the semester. You receive free room, but no food. Pay is there, but not enough to go spending often. Budgeting will be vital.

    Great vacation benefits, plenty of PTO. Health insurance is getting more expensive, but that it happening everywhere.

    Free food if you're a part of the Student Management teams. No sick days/ really strict sick day rules.

    Best- healthcare benefits are really good. Worst- you have to contribute 10% to OPERS, no exceptions. This makes it very hard to live on a low hourly wage. Also, classified staff aren't eligible for merit-based raises every year (only salaried employees), which is ridiculous.

    As a Graduate Assistant, you get your tuition fees covered and a 20 hrs per week part time job with good payment

    They are very good at finding ways of preventing you from getting benefits. If you can get benefits I hear they are ok but they keep raising the cost of health insurance.
