    Former Employee - MMR Personnel  in  Stillwater, OK
    Former Employee - MMR Personnel in Stillwater, OK

    Pros

    Easy to study while you work

    You get a better feel for the library

    You know where everything is and who to go to to get things done

    Cons

    Work hours generally conflict with school schedule making it difficult to work the day shift and juggle classes

    After working all day at the library you don't really want to go back to study there which makes it problematic if you do not have another place to study, ex.(noisy roommate or dorm floor)

    Management is not understanding about calling in if you are sick whether or not you have a note from your doctor

    The managdoesn'tdoesnt know all of the procedures for the tasks they ask you to do and when you ask how to do the task they point across the roommanualmanuel and expect you to figure out how to do it with no guidance except for a difficult to understand techmanualmanuel

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more understanding, these are mostly kids working for you who have never been away from home before, they don't really know how to take care of themselves and they are extremely busy trying to make good grades at the college. This is a part time job they are there because they are working towards a career stop treating them like they are supposed to be there full-time and know every single aspect of the system they have enough to study without needing to memorize a 40 page technical manual on procedures. Just a little understanding would go a long way

    Current Employee - Web Developer in Stillwater, OK

    Pros

    cool place to be working at. No work stress and i enjoyed working with people at OSU. other benefits are also OK.

    Cons

    Salary is a bit low when compared to other institutions of this type. you may have to work on weekends and during evenings if requires.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    may look into increasing the salary of the employees. may also increase the assistantships for graduate students especially for out of state students.
