    Keep it up. Dont be afraid to challenge student workers because many can do the work and will appreciate the addition to their resume.

    Former Employee - Receptionist in New Britain, CT

    I worked at Central Connecticut State University part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The staff that you work with are so friendly and loving, they genuinely feel like family! They're completely understanding and whenever you have a problem they're always there to help you out, you're problem is their problem.

    Cons

    There was honestly no cons to working for the Student Center. It was the best job I will ever have

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to be great! Continue to put the students first and you will change many lives.

    There should be a pay increase for student workers considering we do stressful work for minimum wage

    Traditional campus environment

    Former Employee - Faculty Instructor, Education

    I worked at Central Connecticut State University full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The campus size is modest, therefore class sizes are very reasonable. The university is putting funds into improving the classrooms and faculty offices. As many universities are going away from allocating travel funds for faculty, I was still able to have a stipend for travel to conferences, which was nice.

    Cons

    Like many academic environments, you get out of it what you put into it. My experience was very positive, but I am a type A personality. The department I was in was secluded and did not collaborate with other areas/fields but each department is different.

    Light guard duties

    Former Employee - Sign-In Clerk
    Former Employee - Sign-In Clerk

    I worked at Central Connecticut State University part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    If living in the dormitory, it is extremely convenient placement, and a great way to get to know people who live within the building. It is also a decent pay, for someone living on campus (if you already have a meal plan and other amenities covered).

    Cons

    Working as a sign-in clerk is strict, and there is more responsibility to the job than is believed, since allowing anyone who doesn't live in the building to get in without being signed in falls under your responsibility, if something happens you are at fault directly. In short, the work is deceitfully casual, when there is a great deal of responsibility.

    Student employees don't get nearly as much respect as they deserve.

    Current Employee - Student Worker in New Britain, CT

    I have been working at Central Connecticut State University

    Pros

    It is convenient to work on campus for students and get their work-study award.

    Cons

    Student employees get little to no respect and make minimum wage. Students also can't get hired without work study.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect student workers. Don't discriminate, treat them as if they were any
    Other employee, whether bad or good.

    Pros

    My job is ridiculously easy

    Cons

    My boss is ridiculously hard to work with

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lay off on things like maintaining a name tag at all times. It's required that you introduce yourself to the client regardless.
