    Pros

    - Flexible in who they choose to hire due to student population
    - Hours for seasonal part time work were decent (up to 40 at one point)
    - Training covers everything you need to know
    - Most coworkers pleasant

    Cons

    - Some coworkers unpleasant (normal to any big corporation)
    - Little opportunity to advance from season full time to permanent positions (normal to any temp job)

    Advice to Management

    I am overall satisfied with how I was treated at the company, no big areas of concern.

    Pros

    Great campus, the Adjunct program coordinator was great, the professors I interacted with were great.

    Cons

    Remuneration is paltry, you're there mostly to get teaching experience and have something for a resume.

    Pros

    great people to work with and lot of opportunities to learn and grow professionally, good starter job out of college, beautiful campus, close to home

    Cons

    getting paid once a month, paying for parking when you don't get paid that well and its not guaranteed.

    Pros

    Very good company to work with especially if you are a student. You don't need to mind about transportation and the staffs prioritize your education progress.

    Cons

    The salary is not that higher compared to the private company. And also it is much better to work as an part time intern related to your field than as a student assistant in school.

    Pros

    Its on campus and if you're a student, its really convenient.

    Cons

    No raises for students (ESPECIALLY IN IRT) when I hear when other students in other departments get raises.

    Advice to Management

    Yearly raises.

    Pros

    Great place to work, you learn a great deal in the call center field while fundraising and contributing to the schools annual fund.

    Cons

    Minimum wage; more of a resume builder.

    Advice to Management

    base pay + some type of commission would be nice

    Pros

    Nice scenery on campus; good weather in general.

    Cons

    Horribly mismanaged for the bottom down. This school acts like it's strictly for-profit, serving the administrators and the tenured rather than the students it was created to serve. Admissions and Records, the English department, the nursing department, the campus "police"; sadly all of them are a bureaucratic, incompetent mess. There are better colleges out there; please choice wisely and avoid this one.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with student tax hikes. Reform the campus police so they do actual law enforcement and aren't there just to harass students and faculty and stupid little parking infractions all the time. Take complaints seriously and conduct real investigations; stop sweeping problems under the rug.
