Administrator (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – 9 December 2017
You get sent to ALOT of training for various programs, but aren’t taught how to use the knowledge. I self taught myself how to use the systems and had to go to a different departments to get help for other things. Management is cut throat, they expect you to know what they are thinking and what they want without any guidance. The professors are arrogant (not all) and expect you to drop your daily workload to cater to their needs. If you make a mistake they look down on you. I’m a fast learner, however you can’t expect someone to master 8 systems on the 2nd 3rd attempt. I don’t kiss butt and never will.
No support system. Managers pretend they know what they are doing.
Office Assistant (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – 8 December 2017
My supervisor was really understanding and helpful. Never had any problems with work. They were really flexible with my hours and allowed me to take days off during exam week. I hope to find a job at UIC again in the future!
Sleep Technologist, RPSGT (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – 5 December 2017
Supervisor is unorganized, but coworkers are great. High turn over rate though. Insurance is not good coverage at all but there are incentives to not taking it. Very demanding lab due to patient needs.
Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Cook County, IL – 28 November 2017
UIC is a very diverse and international school. You could easily make tons of friends and join different communities/clubs. The best part of my job as a research assistant was to collaborate with faculty and fellow graduate students.The hardest part of the job was to catch up with several consecutive deadlines (research, exam, etc).
Community Health Worker (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – 21 November 2017
I enjoy working for the University. I have learned many things and been to many training's. Working with the patients to help assist with any barriers. The hardest part is not being able to provide the resources that are not available to families. I really enjoy my coworkers and helping others.
Free lunches, meeting and learning new health related materials.
Admitting Officer III (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – 11 November 2017
Working at UIC was my first job interacting with patients and really being hands one. I enjoyed making sure their experience at the hospital would be as pleasant as possible and always made them feel included in the admissions process by answering questions or concerns they had.
