    I have been working at College of Saint Benedict full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The College of St. Benedict and St. John's University in Minnesota is a wonderful place to teach. I have met some of the best, most intelligent, and most ethically/politically engaged students at this school. Not all students are like this, but within just a few weeks teaching here I felt part of a community.

    Cons

    Like other private liberal arts schools, CSB/SJU was not able to retain adjunct/visiting faculty. The school is also located in the middle of snow-swept prairies, about 80 minutes from Minneapolis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to seek out excellent faculty.

    I worked at College of Saint Benedict part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is a caring environment where there is a work/life balance. The students are wonderful and management is extremely passionate about helping employees grow to their fullest potential.

    Cons

    There is a sense of strong conservatism based on the college's religious affiliation and it may be difficult to get new ideas moving fast. Yet at the same time the affiliation establishes a strong moral and ethical work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the amazing job.

    I worked at College of Saint Benedict part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Many jobs for students to choose from, pays more than minimum wage. Easy to change jobs from year to year. Some full-time student jobs are available in the summer.

    Cons

    Most first-year students have to start in a less desirable job (e.g. food service). Students can't work more than 12 hours per week during the school year.

    I have been working at College of Saint Benedict

    Pros

    The campus is beautiful and the administration is competent.
    The faculty and staff are amiable and the students are friendly.

    Cons

    Some people might be turned off by the lack of direction.
    There have recently been a few budget cuts, as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While the residential life department already fits this criteria, most of the administration could benefit from some younger staff to bring fresh perspectives

    I worked at College of Saint Benedict part-time

    Pros

    The physical plant was a great place to work. There is a real sense of family there. Other job areas are not bad either, considering the pay is usually quite decent and the schedules are good for students. Summer jobs on campus are also quite laid-back while giving you important job experience.

    Cons

    Some of the more desireable jobs are taken up by returning students, so don't be surprised if you get stuck in something not so spectacular your first year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up.

    I was expecting the world, so it is no surprise I was slightly disappointed

    I have been working at College of Saint Benedict full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work with students, take one free course per semester, tuition remission for children/dependents, nationally known college

    Cons

    The staff is aging, and could use a breath of fresh air with some new, younger hires. The pay is less than desirable unless you are on top.
