    Current Employee - Technology Student Worker in Carbondale, IL
    Current Employee - Technology Student Worker in Carbondale, IL

    I have been working at Southern Illinois University part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Wonderful treatment of student workers on campus
    Very understanding about needing to be gone from work for school-related trips
    Staff does an amazing job of informing student workers of the expectations of the jobs

    Cons

    In general, potential work hours are severely limited for most student workers due to the 8 - 4:30 work hours. Some departments are open later though
    Depending on the department, the amount of work required of student workers greatly varies
    The amount of actual applicable experience for some student worker jobs is not really enough to meet the requirements of the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more consistent with rules for student workers across campus and hire students who are truly capable of doing the job they are required.

    Hated it. Some people were nice, but the administration was awful.

    Former Contractor - Lecturer in Carbondale, IL
    Former Contractor - Lecturer in Carbondale, IL

    I worked at Southern Illinois University as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    I can't think of any. Hmm... nope. Not one. Oh wait... there's a Starbucks in the student union. That was good.

    Cons

    The administration is moving toward online and distance ed curricula. The academic environment is gloomy and musty. Some people are nice, but those people don't stay for long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Whatever it is that you're doing, it's not helping.
