Great Student Experience

Student Assistant (Current Employee) Minneapolis, MN

ProsFor their student worker positions they understand you are students first workers second. They go out of their way to ensure that they create a schedule that works for you.

ConsJob scope creep. I have been here for a few years and they continue to give me more and more responsibilities. Normally not a bad thing, but I'm now doing most of the work a retired employee with little compensation increase.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake notice of strong student workers. They do a lot.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Professors… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
