    I worked at Eastern Michigan University part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Worked at the Dining Services. Great place to work. A lot of nice people. Student discounts. Free meal coupons are nice.

    Cons

    I think the management of the Dining Services need to cooperate little more. Sometimes, one manager does not approve the idea of the other one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mgmt needs to collaborate much in order to create more streamlined work environment.

    I worked at Eastern Michigan University part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Easy going with scheduling while enrolled in classes. Great bosses who were on top of all that was happening in their departments.

    Cons

    Horribly pay for the job I was doing. Unfortunately it is a minimum wage establishment where someone who sits at the desk all day makes the same pay as someone who has to do manual labor all shift.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Different jobs should pay more for the work that needs to be done.

    I worked at Eastern Michigan University

    Pros

    The best part of working at Eastern Michigan University is working with students on a regular basis and helping them succeed. It is really great to work with students since you are helping them at such an important phase in their lives.

    Cons

    The only real con of working at Eastern Michigan University is that Ypsilanti is not always the safest city. As long as you are smart and aware of your surroundings, though, you should be fine.

    I worked at Eastern Michigan University

    Pros

    You are apart of this happy, sad, frustrating, but fun continuum of customer service to get the job done. You get to work with people and companies from all over the world. You learn something new every other day. You also come across new situations frequently, so you will never get bored. There is also lots of opportunity with the many affiliations, the Office of Admissions has with different organizations. Eastern Michigan University understands that you are a student first and they help you manage your time as well. You get yearly raises and raises for working during the summer. You also feel good at the end of the day usually.

    Cons

    The pay is low, because you are paid minimum wage. It is sometimes difficult to conform to dress codes because you are working in between classes and other activities on campus. This is especially true during the summer months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think the leadership at the Office of Admissions is great. They are clear on their expectations for you as an employee and they are pretty organized. Student staff and their supervisor or leader will need to always work together and be accessible to each other for the office to function properly.
