    I have been working at Loyola University part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    My department had a great management. The people I worked with were very understanding and they were a down to earth staff.

    Cons

    The building we worked in was somewhat old. Sometimes there were issues with heating and cooling. Its hard to obtain parking downtown, so the commute is somewhat difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    I worked at Loyola University part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I really enjoyed how clean the office was that I worked in. I also enjoyed how short my work days were, this allowed me time to study for my classes. I was treated well and in a professional manner.

    Cons

    The only thing I disliked was the politics of the office. I would've liked equal treatment from everyone no matter what. I felt that new people do not get treated as well as veteran student workers and I think this is wrong and shouldn't be allowed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat all your student workers equally and try to make new workers feel as welcomed as possible! Instead of spending time talking to student workers that have been there, try to connect more with the new student workers!

    I worked at Loyola University full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    School and hospital have a good value system. Staff I worked with was nothing but friendly. Flexible Hours.

    Cons

    I expected more from their health insurance, considering you're working for a health care institution. Pay was also not what I expected. Right before I was supposed to get a raise, the president instituted a company-wide pay freeze. When it was lifted, the increase I eventually received was significantly lower than what was initially offered.
