I worked at University of North Carolina full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The salary and benefits are okay, and the people I worked with were fantastic. Because it's such a big University, there are systems in place to help someone working there. No need to re-invent the wheel for a lot of processes.

Cons

I worked at the university for over six years, and never once got a cost of living increase. The recession hit the University hard, but it seemed like they were taking the budget cuts out on the lowest paid employees.

Training was cut, making it much harder/impossible to advance into a better position. And the general feel of the office was "it's better than being unemployed", which is basically blackmailing employees to keep working for less pay.

    I worked at University of North Carolina part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You have opportunity to meet new students. There is flexible hours to choose from. Workload is not heavy. Mostly time, you have opportunity to work on your own personal stuff. The employers are friendly and helpful. Co-workers are nice and willing to help you. It is on campus so you don't have work outside. It is a great work study position to apply for.

    Cons

    There are night shifts. You may have to cover shift for others if they are unable to come due to illness or personal issues. You may have trouble with new technologies. It is a like a work and learn experience.


  2. "Positive. I only did a temp position, but the staff was friendly and accepting."
