It was good, until management changed
I started an apprenticeship with the university, it was down as a 2 year apprenticeship. I didn’t get my apprenticeship papers until a couple of years later. The apprenticeship procedure was terrible and I was forgotten about for a few years. I went on to being a full time member of staff and they didn’t know. There was little communication from them.
The staff members were welcoming and very friendly, the work load was good. Then management changed. Everyone became stressed and it wasn’t dealt with very well. The manager themselves didn’t treat staff very well either. Sometimes aggressive, other times very passive.
I felt that my time in the university was up and the place was becoming a burden on my mental health. I enjoyed my years there, but by the end I was happy to get out.
Great working environment, good hours, good work load
Bad management change, terrible understanding of stress
