I worked at Massachusetts College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences (More than 3 years)
A good university that grew from being a small specialty school to now being a major center of health science education. It is one of those universities that justifies the cost because students do graduate with solid paying jobs.
Working here is enjoyable because the university does take care of its employees. The retirement benefits are awesome at 10% salary contribution automatically after your first year. Winter holidays and a week off for thanksgiving. Depending on which department you work for, you can find plenty of opportunities for advancement and getting paid to gain additional credentials.
The university grew very quickly over the last few years and has outgrown itself in some ways. Not enough space in the Boston campus so a lot of focus has been put into growing the Worcester campus. The organization is heading into the right direction, but due to the growing pains the process is awkward sometimes.
Advice to Management
Set realistic expectations.
I applied online. I interviewed at Massachusetts College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences.
The process took about 2 weeks. I applied online and was emailed shortly after to schedule a phone interview with the position's immediate supervisor. Questions included what I knew about MCPHS, my interest in the position, and my prior experiences. Very basic. I received an email the next day to come in for an in person interview a week later. In that interview, I met with three individuals in the office--the immediate supervisor, the head of the department, and another individual associated with the office (although not directly with the role). Again, questions mostly pertained to why I wanted to work at MCPHS, and my interest in the field. Everyone was incredibly friendly and I received a call that afternoon offering me the job.
