Auburn University President Christopher B. Roberts was not surprised that Auburn ranked so highly on Forbes’ latest list.

We (Auburn) work hard to meaningfully invest in our faculty and staff, and that includes our newest employees. Auburn is committed to not only deliver a world-class education to out students, but to providing an exceptional working enviroment for our employees.”

Charles B. Roberts, President of Auburn University, (Auburn University News)

Auburn offers great benefits for their employees

Auburn University offers many exciting opportunities and benefits for their full-time employees including:

  • 4 weeks of paid vacation
  • A full tuition waver for undergraduate and graduate coursework
  • A 50% tuition waver for spouses and dependents taking undergraduate courses
  • A zero dollar copay for most generic medications
  • Discounted season tickets for athletic events

This is the third time in the past five years that Auburn University has been recognized by Forbes as a top employer. In 2017, Auburn was named one of America’s Midsize employees and in 2021 the university was named one of the best employers in Alabama. However, this most recent ranking is the first time Auburn has been ranked against such a large number of other companies and universities.

At the moment, Auburn is hiring for all levels across campus. Anybody who is interested should check out their human resources page here.
