    A great university with a great campus

    Graduate Research Assistant (Current Employee)
    Cleveland, OH

    ProsA good pay with flexible time schedule for me, good apportunities. Huge Campus location in downtown and suburbs.

    ConsHaven't found any major con's yet , but one I would definitely like to share is parking on campus. It is getting expensive to buy parking pass. But anyway it is easily excessible via public transport.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Student jobs are usually very flexible and can pay well.

    Student Assistant (Former Employee)
    Cleveland, OH

    ProsVery flexible schedule, decent pay, good hours, treated very well for the most part. As far as student jobs go, working for the University allows you the best balance of free time and pay, as well as being treated well.

    ConsSome full time employees condescend you, limited hours, no full time opportunity for students since ACA. Also, even as a student you will be forced to contribute to the OPERS retirement system, a perk if your going into public service since you will already have service credits, otherwise, you can file a form to get your money back.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe availability of more hours would be nice, otherwise everything is pretty much done well.

    The food was great the people were nice and the atmosphere was just right.

    Cook (Former Employee)
    Cleveland, OH

    ProsGreat place to work if you like getting payed less to do a goood job.

    ConsThe pay rate is lousy .

    Advice to Senior ManagementPratice the philosophy your school preaches and take care of the employees like you take care of the students not only do the students make the school so do the back bone of the school and that's the employees if you were in their place you would like decent pay where you were better able to take care of your family.. a school is only as great as it's employees and they take care of everyone at the school.#betterpaystrongerunion
