    Pros

    Nice academic environment
    Fancy equipment for materials analysis
    Good advisor and lots of project funded by Air Force Base

    Cons

    salary is low
    Good reputation of UD is well known in OH, but no as well in other states

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be a good transition position before you find a position at the Air Force Base, more opportunities there if you prefer to work in industrial.

    I have been working at University of Dayton part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Getting job experience in college. Gaining experience in customer service is important for almost any career path, and a student job will almost always have that component.

    Cons

    Not all of the available campus jobs are set up in a way that takes into consideration a student's schedule.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As a university employing students, classes and homework need to be taken into consideration when determining student employee responsibilities and regulations.
