    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better 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.

    Former Employee - Event Staff in Tallahassee, FL

    I worked at Florida State University part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    You 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!

    Cons

    They 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.

    I have been working at Florida State University

    Pros

    Compensation 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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