I worked at University of Maine at Machias full-time (More than 10 years)
Working for the University of Maine at Machias is like working for your family (the GOOD parts!) - everyone, faculty and administrators included, is interested in you and care about you.
Like other businesses, the University of Maine at Machias has had to down-size, and in doing so it didn't matter if you were there 30+ years. I was not essential to students, thus my position was eliminated.
