It is too expensive for hourly employees.
The health insurance is fairly expensive for what you get (high deductive, HSA plans only) and you pay for vision and dental as well. The University does provide a large initial contribution to your HSA upon starting which is nice. Vacation is average (10 days starting for the pay grade) but includes 4 floating holidays and all other holidays the University is closed (perk of higher education). MAJOR negative is the 60 day window for health insurance benefits to kick in and the 90 day for vacation/time off requests. Although vacation does start to accrue immediately as well as sick time. One major and GREAT benefit is the tuition assistance for staff and faculty and for their immediate dependents. Excellent benefit for those wanting to get a degree or continue their education.
Best-free college classes included in remuneration package. Worst- that is the only benefit in the package, but that is better than most temporary positions.
As a part time work study i did not get a benefit package. I did get time off to study material for my classes. Management was very flexible when it came to scheduling.
Can participate on retirement plan. Can qualify for free education while teaching.
Really good tuition remission program for employees and dependents. Not bad vacation and sick time, holidays etc. Pay is significantly below industry standard. They will hum and haw about this and send out compensation letters when pay is challenged university wide on surveys -- but the fact remains they have 10 senior executives on the payroll and more Deans and Associate V.PS than you can shake a stick at doing lord knows what that never have had their salaries touched even while they lay off faculty and staff and do not fill staff positions at campus centers when they leave.
