“Seeing the stability that my mom and older sister had through their University jobs made me want to work at the U. I joined U Market Services in 2013 as a stores specialist, and now I work at the Facilities Management Central Order Desk. 

“My days go quickly, as my work keeps me busy and engaged. Every day I get to learn from experts in the trades, including carpenters, electricians, plumbers, and custodians. I like that at the end of every day, I’ve accomplished a lot.

“The benefits at the U are great, especially the Employee Assistance Program. The medical coverage I have through the U is awesome. It gives me a sense of security because I know I won’t be burdened by medical bills if anything happens. 

“The fact that most people work at the U for a long time speaks volumes. The wealth of knowledge that people have here is invaluable, and I’ve seen many people with decades of service retire from U Market Services. I want to be able to say that I’m retiring from the University at the end of my career, though that’s still a ways away.” —Emily Oberfoell, Principal Office and Administrative Specialist, AFSCME Unit 6 - Clerical
