Dublin Institute of Technology reviews

Difficult environment for an admin...

Employee in Administration in Dublin, Ireland
former employee in 2007

The Best Bits

I like the hours and the autonomy I had as the admin to head of optometry department.

Things to improve

I think the culture in DIT is not constructive. Everything is left to the last minute and admins are expected to pick up the slack for the bad planning on the part of lecturers. When I was there, the person in charge of printing for everyone in DIT Keven Street, had a big sign on his door saying, " your bad planning is not my emergency ". That should tell you everything you need to know... :)

About The Job

writing letters, database, filing, using the intranet to schedule rooms, cancel rooms, send emails, help students and lectures with any type of admin requirments.
