    I have been working at Gonzaga University part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, good pay (for a student), and great people. University employers understand that your priorities are school, not work - and encourage that. As a student taking 18 credits every semester, this job was just what I was looking for to make some extra money.

    Cons

    I really have nothing bad to report about my experience working at Gonzaga.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing! Us student employees appreciate your flexibility.

    I worked at Gonzaga University full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good people, good environment, good students

    Cons

    Terrible management, started to go down hill when McCulloh administration took over 4 years go. No longer a family environment that put the worker first, turned into corporate where the bottom line was the most important thing. Too bad. Was great place to work in most of the 2000s. Do not follow their own mission statement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in the people again.

    Pros

    Great college atmosphere. Great colleagues that are passionate about their work and instilling that passion in the students that they cross paths with.

    Cons

    Not a great amount of job opportunity and career development options, health benefits are average and with decent compensation and stellar tuition and retirement benefits..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower your employees to lead.

    I love Gonzaga, working for my school was a great experience!

    Former Employee - Reception in Spokane, WA

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

    Pros

    As a work study, you get a great schedule and get to experience life in an office setting while taking classes. My boss and co-workers were great! Even though I was a part-time worker, I felt respected and appreciated. Some days were busy, but not all. Life in the office was laid back. As a student I would highly recommend working for your school.

    Cons

    Not much to say here, the job wasn't difficult and I really enjoyed being around the people from my department.

    I worked at Gonzaga University full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The benefits where very good.

    Cons

    Didn't value employees time. Worked them to death. No one has your back and will throw you under the buss the first chance they get. Thus turn over is extremely high.

    I worked at Gonzaga University part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Working part-time as a university representative was an overall excellent experience. Can be a fairly challenging job at first, but grows more manageable over time. Co-workers are all students, so you will most likely be working with familiar faces or have an opportunity to meet some new people. The higher-ups are all former students as well, and are very supportive, even after graduation.

    Cons

    Cold calling can be difficult even if everyone has *some* connection to the university. There are always those malignant folks who enjoy giving you a hard time, but for every insulting call, there are five great ones.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider increasing commission to the students who bring in the most money.

    I worked at Gonzaga University part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The office was full of friendly folks who truly wanted to help everyone who comes in. We had multiple luncheons and lots of appreciation for their employees, part time or full.

    Cons

    Despite such competence, there is a huge lack of training, luckily I didn't need it, but other employees could have definitely used it and it showed to the customers who came in. The only reason they receive a top 50 is because the staff is so friendly and work as hard as they can to solve the problem, even if they don't possess the knowledge to do so.

    Self-driven work that teaches you to adapt on your own.

    I worked at Gonzaga University

    Pros

    Working with a professor gives you a great knowledge of how scientific research is conducted
    Great experience to go along with the major you are working towards

    Cons

    Most time spent by yourself, tends to be slow tedious work without a lot of help. You don't even finish projects sometimes so it feels like your work is useless

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more than one person working on each project it gets lonely sitting by yourself all day

    Pros

    Good benefits, good compensation, cheap cost of living. Generally friendly people with a strong sense of community. Pleasant campus with nice weather.

    Cons

    Lots of opinionated people, slow-moving administration, boring town to live in. Everybody has an opinion they want to share. Dramatic overuse of university-wide e-mail.
