I have been working at Winona State University full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Beautiful campus, great working environment, excellent benefits, the community is a great place to raise a family. Nestled between the bluffs and the Mississippi river. 25 miles from La Crosse, WI; 45 miles to Rochester, MN. Surprising number of companies in the area offering opportunities for students to work, partner for projects, and have an internship opportunity. Home of the Great River Shakespeare and Beethoven Festivals.

Cons

Small town, 2 hours from Twin Cities, lack of fine dining establishments. Land locked on an "island."

    Getting hired was a painless process and I learned the most while doing calls and instant messaging full-timers.

    I worked at Winona State University

    Pros

    It was convenient while in school and relaxed place to work. The West Campus office had a different atmosphere than Main because there were usually only 1 to 3 people working at the office at a time. This is a hurry up and wait sort of thing where you enter the call and do the work as efficiently as you can and then sometimes you wait an hour or two for another student to walk in. It was OK to bring something else to do for when it wasn't busy.

    Cons

    If you don't have a car, you can take the shuttle but it does not always leave or arrive on time. The supervisor understands that and would also usually schedule a little overlap between students' shifts. I had to leave nearly half an hour before a class to get on the right shuttle to guarantee getting to it on time.
