    I enjoyed it.

    Instructor (Former Employee) Tallahassee, FL

    ProsHealth and dental benefits/ never had any issues receiving payments that were owed to me; and it was a relatively collegial and friendly environment.

    ConsIn some ways, it was run like a typical bureaucracy. Lots of unnecessary form filling, inefficiency and waiting in lines.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Greatest on-campus job

    University Ambassador (Current Employee) Tallahassee, FL

    ProsThe Florida State Visitors Center puts the aspect of being a student first. Scheduling is made to be flexible with your class schedules and time for studying. The environment is professional for a college student and supervisors are very approachable for any situation, professional or personal. It is the greatest thing to officially represent the university and talk to visitors and prospective students about Florida State.

    ConsThe biggest challenge is conducting tours on those hot summer days ... but you get used to it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter transportation for VIP visitors or under special circumstances. Out of the 4 vans we had, 1 is really only left and the maintenance of that van is already poor. We work with what we have, but it would be great if we could get some updates in that. Also, we are the only entity that represents the university to visitors that does not have official gear. That would be nice.

    You'll Love It - CSC

    Event Staff (Former Employee) Tallahassee, FL

    ProsYou meet lots of people, the staff is nice, its hourly. Its a pretty good part time job, you call if you want to work or they'll call you.. During football season is the best time to join in. The interviews are really easy, and after you get the job you fill out some paper work and then have to come in for a test that has like 10 questions on it from the powerpoint they show you before. Good luck!

    ConsThey don't answer the phones if its not a dang Monday or Tuesday, and some of the people who come there don't like the rules so they get little funky attitudes, and its bi-weekly.

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

    Overall Very Pleasant

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsCompensation is fair, but the job security and vacation time make up for it. They give you all the days between Christmas and new years off without having to use your vacation time.

    ConsThey don't give raises. With the increase in inflation and cost of living I'm actually making less than when I started.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI think more can be done to spend funding money more efficiently, but they are working on it.

    Good place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsIt is really good that every TA has office. There are good training program as well. It was really nice to work there. Nice instructors and nice school.

    ConsYou do have too much freedom there. It was low pay compare to other school. It was difficult if you have a family to support.

    Advice to Senior Managementraise the pay.
