Pros

EIU has a lot of different employment opportunities. This one is a hidden gem. Available to student with nice hours(20 max as all university jobs), and has nothing to do with food.

Cons

You take a small aptitude test to get hired; fixing simple computer issues,simple application knowledge on office and Dreamweaver, and computer hardware. So those with no technical knowledge it might be difficult. It can also be a little boring.

    Pros

    Each department have their own work environment. The geography/geology department is very friendly, open, and pleasing. The people work well together, very social, and helpful to others (inside and outside the department).

    Cons

    I have worked in other departments (the food court) and are not very fair to student workers. They tend to look down onto the students and only allow them to work short and small amount of hours. The benefits that you receive as a student worker is just a hourly pay and the low level of student insurance. Not very much fun, friendliness, and not enjoyable.

  2. Okay, and in some departments great.
