    As a part time employee, I received no benefits package. Ultimately this was a big reason for my decision to leave the university, it is underfunded

    There is none for RA's because we are students and obviously don't really need them.

    Being an employee of the State, the insurance is not as good as you would expect. They have a wellness program and incentives are offered, but they don't include a free membership to the gym on campus or in the community.

    The most cost effective health insurance option is the Healthy Saver Plan, which is HSA based. Currently, employer contributes $1000 each year to your HSA, and you can then choose to contribute to it, via payroll deduction, on a monthly, yearly, or one-time basis. Dental and Vision plans are included as well. On campus stores and restaurants offer a discount to faculty/staff, and various businesses in the community also offer discounts for students, faculty, and staff. Job training and professional development is largely left up to the heads your particular department. Full time employees qualify for up to 6 credit hours tuition waivers. Children of full time employees qualify for a 50% tuition discount, and while it was previously discontinued, President Caboni has stated that he plans to resume the Tuition discounts for spouses, but there is no detailed information on that as of yet.

    Little to no benefits for part-time employees, especially those that are not students.

    I didn't receive any benefits from working in my place of work. I didn't even get time off and had was scolded when it was necessary for me to take time off. My place of work was closed during summer so I guess that is my vacation time.

    The university chose to create its own insurance program, which so drastically increased my premium and prescription copays I had to drop it.
