Pros

Great hours, great pay, perfect way to study and make financial gain simultaneously. The job has little responsibility, and depending on the supervisor, it can be a fun and sociable experience.

Cons

It's a customer service job, and sometimes a supervisor will treat you with little respect. Also, make sure that you can make the hours that you schedule in advance, and try to trade shifts early. It is only part-time, so the max you can work is 20 hours.

Advice to Management

Some supervisors tend to micromanage and impose borderline ridiculous rules. The management needs to focus on providing a better experience at the University, not impose ridiculous rules that make it

    Pay, pay, pay. Starting salaries are substantially below the market and pay increases are few and far between.

    Find a way to pay faculty and staff more competitively.
