    Former Employee - Chemistry Stockroom Assistant in Rochester, MI

    I worked at Oakland University


    Flexible hours - Being a student with a changing schedule, this is a huge advantage
    Good boss - Makes sure tasks are done, but doesn't micro-manage every detail
    Great place for student employment.


    Students are only allowed a maximum number of hours per week. - Understandable, as academics were the main focus, but still a little irritating at times

    Neutral Outlook
