    Employer that used to be about education and offering students the best education they can't get at affordable cost.

    I have been working at Stony Brook University

    Pros

    It's easy. You read the event log, and set up rooms (tables, chairs, stage, microphone, laptops) and make sure everything works.
    Also, you do some cleaning like wiping tables down with Windex and sweeping/vacuuming.

    *If you work 15 hours a week, I am sure for at least 7 of those hours you will spend setting up events, while the other 8 you will have free time to study or read a book/go on your laptop to relax.*

    Cons

    It's minimum wage: $7.25 an hour.
    Bummer because we do a lot of physical labor when we moves the tables, stages and chairs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everything's is alright. Just raise our pay. Thanks
