    I have been working at Dallas Baptist University part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good environment, most people are pretty easy to work with.

    Cons

    Terrible Pay and Not much Appreciation:

    As a long-time student worker, I have been quite frustrated with the lack of opportunities for advancement, as well as the pay. I have been here for several years and received a small promotion, but am still making minimum wage and am only allowed to work 25 hours or less during the school year, while there are student workers that "know people" that are making much more, have only been employed here for a few months, and are being offered full-time positions. It is very frustrating. And many student workers are taken advantage of when it comes to being asked to perform certain tasks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay student workers at least a little more, across the board. Have student worker appreciation day, along with the faculty and staff appreciation days. Learn to recognize hard workers with initiative and determination that may not be the most popular students on campus, and offer them full-time jobs.

    Pros

    There are some really great opportunities at DBU to network and grow personally.
    Easy for students to work on campus.

    Cons

    Poor management from the top down.
    Many dual personalities - Jeckle and Hyde.
    My director is terrible about being consistent and rarely stays at work for a full day.
    Also, I never truly felt appreciated - management seems fake and flaky.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider showing more appreciation for employees - both full and part time.

    Pros

    The heart the University for its mission statement is evident. Co-workers are great to work with and feels so much like a family. Very family oriented which allows for great work/life balance. Also very reasonable when it comes to vacation and sick leave. They know how to take care of their employees and you feel like you are really a part of something.

    Cons

    Some departments can be stressful especially when it comes to communication but things normally get resolved and a timely manner.

    I worked at Dallas Baptist University

    Pros

    Depending what department you work with, they are VERY flexible with classes. If you get the right boss you will really love your job and most likely be promoted after school.

    Cons

    The pay here is terrible, expect minimum wage, no if's, and, or butts. They expect you to have little to no life throughout your time here.

    I have been working at Dallas Baptist University full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    some of the leadership is good, benefits are above average, if you're in with the higher-ups you're set

    Cons

    a lot of rules and they expect you to abide by them - Legalistic
    The pres is completely against certain churches and pastors and if you go to a church that he doesn't like... good luck.
    pay is horrible and some positions paid more 15 years ago - they try and get new grads to "get a free masters" while they join the staff and make 22-24K a year while the some student workers who are "connected" make the equivalent to 40K

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    enough with the micro-management
    reward people
