    Former Employee - Student Project Coordinator in Brookings, SD

    I worked at Daktronics part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great way to get a background on how things operate in the background when a project comes down the pipeline.

    Cons

    Can be hard to really get into the job, work can be tedious data entry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensate those who have invested significant quantities of their time and career towards the company better. Most people appreciate the work environment, however good talent is lost to those who can reward their employees better.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Daktronics.

    Interview Details

    They are very GPA based when choosing a student employee. I had a 3.2 and they continually got on me during reviews to improve it. Not sure why that mattered so much to them, I feel like my work background and work results would mean more. Basically you need to tell them you are a hard worker and are willing to put in the hours to get the job done. Organization is key. Make sure you let them know you intend to stay with the company upon graduation.
