    I worked at Messiah College part-time

    Pros

    Almost everyone here is dedicated to the mission of the school and open to new ways of operating if you approach them as equals and with respect. A very supportive community with a great amount of resources.

    Cons

    The bureaucracy and stays quo can be frustrating to work against if not patient. The environment can be stifling if you are good at what you do and motivated to excel because many people will ask you to pick up different responsibilities.

    I worked at Messiah College

    Pros

    Other Employees are always awesome to work with. There are tons of opportunities to pick up jobs to fit any schedule.

    Cons

    No cons I can think of. This review is mostly for any students who aren't sure they can balance a job and school. I'm just saying that "yes, you can."

    I have been working at Messiah College

    Pros

    Boss is very easy to work with and doesn't micromanage the small work. As long as the work gets finished, everyone is happy.

    Cons

    Machines do not always work and the sound shuts off randomly. The systems are old and out of date, but they still provide a great movie theater experience for a cheap price.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Include the lead projectionist in the screening process for hiring because he/she will know which people will work well together.

    I worked at Messiah College full-time

    Pros

    Messiah has very strong academics, a core curriculum that is guided by institutional principles, and dedicated educators. Excellent athletics and plentiful, diverse co-curricular opportunities to meet students varied interests. Very well developed educational programs that fuses faith and learning.

    Cons

    Because the school offers a broad spectrum of programming and opportunities for students, some employees make a bit of financial sacrifice in order to work in the positive environment that Messiah provides.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep serving as a model school in the Northeast.

    Great Opportunities for work-study

    I have been working at Messiah College part-time

    Pros

    They have lots of job opportunities for students, in many different areas of work. You get a raise each year you stay at the same job. Most jobs allow for a lot of flexibility in scheduling to accommodate students, and it's usually pretty easy to get someone to cover your shift. It's fun to work there and overall the atmosphere is great. The managers are great and fun to work with.

    Cons

    You start out at minimum wage for most work-study positions, not all of the other student workers have the greatest work ethic, but that's probably pretty common no matter where you work. Work can also be a bit repetitive and boring, but again, that's probably the case with most jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    none, overall I love working here
