    I worked at University of North Texas

    Pros

    It had a very flexible schedule. There were plenty of workers to help pick up your shifts when needed. The supervisor was probably the nicest person that you could work for.

    Cons

    There aren't really any cons when it comes to this job. Some times professors would be aggressive about things. Opening was sometimes hard because it was so early in the morning.

    The staff. You have to love what you do to be in housing, and these people love it.

    Cons

    unset hours. It's a housing job, so when duty calls, you have to come running.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to invest in your employers.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, benefits are amazing. I started here as a student and was able to learn quickly due to the friendly and helpful nature of my colleagues.

    Hard to move up quickly.

    Culture is deeply ingrained, for better or for worse. Sometimes changes can be hard to implement due to this.

    Consider offering more guidance to employees on how to move up, or get more leadership experience or opportunities.
