    Pros

    Fair pay, all workers were treated with respect and staff and supervisors were knowledgable

    Cons

    Schedules were very unorganized and it was not uncommon to be called in 30 minutes before a job began you were not scheduled for. Very labor intensive work, late nights are common (2-4 am)

    Pros

    Flexible hours. Convenient schedule painting. Food/drink benefits. No work on holidays. Coworkers always make the job fun.

    Cons

    Very low pay for the amount of work. Managers that don't treat you the best, or acknowledge input. Customers also are not the best.

    Advice to Management

    We're all students - treat us as such. First and foremost students, employees second. There's too high expectation of us to do the low pay jobs that we do.

    Pros

    CMU truly cares about their employees and they have worked feverishly to continue down this employee appreciation trend. They care about leadership and personal growth and I highly suggest looking into further development opportunities. They've worked hard to make sure that information is more transparent and that their leadership understands that.

    Cons

    It's a public university, so it can be difficult to keep everyone on the same page and for leadership to be exactly what it needs to be. They also tend to spend a lot of money, but that's the reality of an educational institution.
