    Wonderful place to work

    Student Custodian (Former Employee)
    Missoula, MT

    ProsFor my student custodial job, my supervisor made coming to work enjoyable, there was opportunity to pick up extra hours regularly and my coworkers were great!

    ConsNot a lot of hours. You are looking at few hours a week though. 3.5 hours a way and 5 days a week is what I worked. Monday- Thursday was 8:00pm to 11:30pm and Friday was 4:30-8pm. This did constrain the classes I could take a little bit, as working a later shift will screw with your sleeping schedule.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAn increase in pay for the student workers who live off campus would be beneficial. Missoula is an expensive town and pulling in $400 a month makes getting by really tough. More hours or an increase in pay would be great.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    A wonderful work environment full of wonderful people.

    Resident Assistant (Former Employee)
    Missoula, MT

    ProsIncredible autonomy is given when interacting with and helping the student customers of this business. These interactions are the most rewarding and educational experiences at this business.

    ConsWith autonomy comes responsibility, and oversight is sometimes lacking. Employees are trained in policies related to their work, but they must ensure that they are followed.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great benefits

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Missoula, MT

    ProsGreat medical benefits, many training opportunities, flexible schedules, in-state tuition waiver, paid holidays, retirement fund, lovely work environment.

    ConsPay is not ideal in the low teens / hour, however when all the pros are taken advantage of (i.e. the savings on education, medical benefits, training opportunities, as well as the retirement fund matched by employer) one ends up investing in their future more so than many other employment opportunities in Missoula.

    A great place to make friends, learn important "real world" skills and how to give back to the community.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Missoula, MT

    ProsYou are only limited by your own creativity. KBGA is an integral part of the community and opens doors to meeting many influential people in Missoula. High respect for people that work at KBGA. See projects completed. team-oriented. great perks to compensate for low pay including coffee at work, and show tickets.

    Conslow-pay. Long hours. Many events to attend that aren't paid. yearly managerial turn-over. some people that are hired have zero experience so learning curve is high.

    Advice to Senior Managementmanagement changes every year, so this is a hard question to complete. Possible answer may be: have strategic goals set out every year that must be met beyond fundraising events.
