    Former Employee - Student Computing Assistant in Flagstaff, AZ

    I worked at Northern Arizona University part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Competitive hourly pay, with flexible working hours. During school I could drop and pick up shift throughout my week to counteract homework loads. Bosses are super relaxed and care about their employees.

    Cons

    The STC is almost always open so its possible hours may suck. Sometimes the workload is slow, which leads to boredom of employees(depends on how you like to spend your time).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good job for the most part.
