    I have been working at Bowling Green

    Pros

    It's a medium-sized university, but has lots of the perks of a much larger school.

    Cons

    As a student and employee, it's a bureaucratic mess, but I suspect the same of most public universities.

    I worked at Bowling Green part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule
    caring staff
    great work environment with other students

    I loved working at the library as a student great people!

    Cons

    low wage & only part time
    They have to cap the amount of hours you can work which may lead some to get a second job. The pay isn't great but it is what it should be.
