    Pros

    Very Very Flexible, great pay for what you do, Don't have to worry about clothing/ inappropriateness thanks to the honor code.

    Cons

    Drama in that if things don't go a person's way they are really mad and will start talking bad about a person, Far from campus for students, A lot of heavy lifting,

    Advice to Management

    Just calm down, everything will be fine. They think that because they are higher up they know how to do jobs of the lower "peon" people so they start creating rules that are really really weird.

    Pros

    Very flexible hours, I can basically work how much or how little I like, As long as it's under 20 hours during the fall and winter semesters.

    Cons

    Pay is not the best, I get payed a little better that other famous jobs so I'm not really compelling, but i hear this a lot.

    Advice to Management

    Well management is different for every different division, I love my management so I have no real advice for my management.

    Pros

    Fantastic & beautiful clean, well-kept campus. Outstandingly generous benefits package, both health and retirement benefits. Great people, great community feel. Almost every person I work with or have help me with an issue is very helpful and efficient. Runs like a well-oiled machine.

    Cons

    Lower salaries than compared to the market, but is certainly made up for in generous offering of benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! The way BYU will stay relevant in a very competitive academic world is excellence and continuous improvement while sticking to the standards it has set for itself.

    Pros

    Decent pay
    Flexible hours
    Great experience for resume
    Killer Chemical Engineering faculty
    It was nice working with peers

    Cons

    Not really much to say. Can't work more than 20 hours per week, ever. Wish that could change.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. I love how you are never afraid to be different than the norm. Even though some hate it, I like it that BYU unapologetically enforces its standards and rules.

    Pros

    Flexible with my class schedule, and a good work environment. The people are good to work with and I've liked all of the bosses I've had at any of my student jobs.

    Cons

    There's not much to say, negatively. I wish there were less restrictions on number of hours we can work, but i think that has to do with them avoiding having to provide health insurance benefits etc.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. People like working at most student jobs, even janitorial ones. I have felt like management has been responsible and effective in getting the job done every day.

    Pros

    BYU is a great work environment that keeps hours restricted to help students focus on their education. They are very flexible and aware that our first priority at the institution is school not work.

    Cons

    The pay at BYU is nowhere near the best. A lot of times I was on the clock as more of a formality and had nothing to do which made me feel bad about the work that I did.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you have a plan for the position that you are hiring. Too often I have seen people hired just to try and create more jobs which s great in its own right but leads to frustrated employees.

    If you don't go to bed early, you will feel it.

    Great Job

    Pros

    Great environment, flexible management, and a great sense of Esprit De Corps. Room for upward movement. (I was offered a management position after 2 years.)

    Cons

    The work itself is not too inspiring. There is not a lot of organization in training. Basic training is sometimes skipped. Little to no feedback on the quality of your work.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to team-build and encourage upward movement, but develop a more codified policy of training. Periodically provide feedback to employees.

    Pros

    great boss, great pay, overall just a great experience

    Cons

    Sometimes it was boring and mundane, but that's custodial life for you.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to women during women's conference and ask them to have some respect for those who are cleaning up after them.
