Former Employee - Desktop Support Assistant in Iowa City, IA
Former Employee - Desktop Support Assistant in Iowa City, IA

I worked at University of Iowa part-time (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.

    Former Employee - Food Worker in Iowa City, IA

    I worked at University of Iowa full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, good pay, MOST of the students are a joy to work with

    Cons

    You only get paid once a month, extremely hard to get a job here, and very high expectations during probationary period. Some standards are almost impossible to meet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont be so hard on the new employees. Sometimes your standards are ridiculous and almost impossible to meet.
