    Former Employee - Desk Staff in Madison, WI
    Former Employee - Desk Staff in Madison, WI

    I worked at University of Wisconsin part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Awesome student supervisors
    Normally good co-workers
    Flexible hours
    Good pay for a University job

    Cons

    Upper management does not care about student workers
    Management constantly making changes to procedures
    Embarrassingly incompetent co-workers can slip through the cracks and be a detriment to everyone

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some time to literally work desk staff shifts every now and then. Constant procedural changes and updating would not occur if you truly understood the work you were overseeing.
