Former Employee - Cashier-temporary in Ames, IA
Former Employee - Cashier-temporary in Ames, IA

I worked at Iowa State University part-time (less than a year)

Pros

I was able to meet many new and interesting people while working there and the hours were easy to work with.

Cons

The only downside to the job I had was that it was temporary with no opportunity to change to a permanent position.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I would have loved to have the opportunity to work full-time for the university, maybe in the future that can be an option for some temporary helpers at the beginning of the year.

    Current Employee - Graduate Research Assistant in Ames, IA

    I have been working at Iowa State University part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked in a small department with a generally cohesive/ supportive atmosphere (though I hear this is not always the case in larger departments); Decent pay given the cost of living in Ames, IA; Far less pretentious than many other universities

    Cons

    Pretty culturally homogenous; Definitely on the politically "red" side of the spectrum (some may consider this a pro)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce administrative waste and pass on the savings to under-supported departments that are doing great work with embarassingly little support
