    I couldn't transfer jobs when I switched from a branch campus to main campus.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work.

    Positive Experience

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsMy advisor was great, the whole research team was very friendly. Learned a lot during my time working in their research projects.

    ConsThe university has a rule that restricts graduated students working past one semester after graduation. It's really annoying if you need more time to finish the projects you started during your senior year.

    Good place to work for students

    Help Desk Operator (Current Employee)
    Columbus, OH

    Pros- Convenient if you go to school here
    - Flexible hours with class/exams taking priority
    - Good variety in types of jobs and workload.

    Cons- Student jobs are close to minimum wage and the raises (if any) are small, regardless of amount of work done. Some jobs are much better than others in this respect, though.
    - Ideas for positive changes are rarely, if ever, considered.
    - Avoid working for dining services.

    Advice to Senior Management- Increase compensation or add benefits when it is deserved.
    - Encourage managers to listen to student ideas for positive change.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Eyes of A Student

    Student Assistant (Current Employee)
    Columbus, OH

    ProsFlexible hours; they put school first; easy to change schedule

    ConsWe are treated like we are unimportant just because we are student workers. It feels like we are unappreciated from time to time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your students like they are staff or employees also. We make your job easier, and we deserve to feel like part of the team.
