I worked at University of Illinois part-time (more than a year)

Pros

Free meal with every shift, pretty easy jobs, can make friends with workers and environment allows for talking with others

Cons

Monotonous work, no incentive for workers to do more than the minimum besides the threat of supervisors coming in and basing decisions about how much you work on 10 seconds of observation

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to actually assess who is doing what work with more in depth monitoring of workers instead of doing a quick scan.

    I have been working at University of Illinois

    Pros

    Fair and friendly management. Good benefits. The U of I is a great place to work. I highly recommend it.

    Cons

    Budget cuts and the current economy have reduced the number of positions that are available. I worked there during a much more stable economy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I can't think of anything that I would advise of. I enjoyed my time there and was sorry to leave when a lack of local funding caused my lay-off.

    I worked at University of Illinois

    Pros

    Great place to work and the job is very fulfilling. Job was easy and pay was average for the work that I was doing.

    Cons

    Funding from the state has been cut, and it shows. Technology in my department was very outdated, and people constantly would have to take unpaid time off.
