Best: great medical/dental plans that cover a variety of specialties. Tuition waivers cover 6 credits per semester, both undergrad and graduate. Departments are usually pretty flexible for staff members who are taking classes and allow them to move their schedules around to accommodate. Cons: sometimes it's difficult to find specialists (drs) on the HMO plan.
The benefits are comprehensive. But one area could get better is dental coverage. Pay more upfront with full dental coverage than when I was in school. Doesn't make sense.
Salaries are not competitive, so the benefits are one of the better aspects of working for a state university, especially if you value work-life balance. Employee contributions to medical, dental, life, and many other insurance options are extremely reasonable. Depending on position type, annual leave is nearly 4 weeks per year -- in addition to state holidays and (for the last several years) paid time off at Christmas and Spring Break when the university closes. The employee education program covered the full cost of my Master of Business Administration degree (a wonderful investment, well worth the 5 years of evening classes to slowly earn). There are also numerous perks for employee discounts with local businesses, cellphone plans, and more.
As a part-time employee, I did not apply for any benefits while working for the University of North Florida's Department of Math & Statistics.
The paid time off is very generous.
great benefits but there are not enough choices for retirement or health insurance
You typically get two week off at Christmas and two days off at spring break in addition to your vacation. Health insurance is very affordable.
Not applicable for this job. Free housing, free meal plan, a little pay every semester. it is a part time college job, no reall benefits.
Best- 6 free credits every semester, great health care, other perks such as vacation packages, 15-25% off phone bills. Worst- time off is 4 hours earned every pay period, can't take days off before you earn them.
Easy access to the campus and flexible hours to attend classes.
