    I worked at Penn State University part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Work with your class schedule.

    Cons

    I was underpaid. The department was hostile resulting in several employees quitting meaning we were short staffed for most of the year. Complaints were not met well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't have team workshops where different departments are doing the same job and one is getting paid less, students are chatty about that sort of thing.
