I worked at University of Iowa part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

I worked in the IT department, and it was overall a positive experience. The hours were flexible and everyone that works there is really friendly. Learned quite a bit about IT support and working with people. I got a regular raise in pay, as much as 25 cents per semester.

Cons

Sometimes the work is menial, like loading and unloading trucks of equipment. One manager was occasionally condescending, but nice overall. You'll occasionally have other students that are hard to work with, but that's to be expected in any job.

    I worked at University of Iowa part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, everyone is nice, almost too nice at times. There is always food around for your typical college student.

    Cons

    If you enjoy cubicles, work gossip than you'll love this job. Personally I can't stand that type of work environment. Also good luck trying to do anything creative.

    *Great front office people

    Cons

    *Arrogant, lazy, stubborn, and stuck up employees
    *Impatient/rude customers
    *Poor dress code (women wear jeggings) <--- How are they professional?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    *Clearly communicate employee expectations
    *Create weekly training programs (per station)
    *Keep personal and professional relationships separate (do not let them intertwine)
    *Teach employees how to handle customers properly
    *Teach employees how you want the job done (you are very UNCLEAR of how the job needs to be done)
