    I have been working at Montclair State part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Summer Fridays off, long Christmas break, nice campus

    Cons

    Seems to be in a time warp. Old, stodgy atmosphere. Shady undertones... not always honest in practice... under-performing employees are tolerated... obviously in an attempt to save salary and benefits $ they give jobs to students that more experienced, polished individuals should be doing... morale is low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't think it would help. Sorry.

    Former Employee - Student Web Assistant in Montclair, NJ

    I worked at Montclair State part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Office staff is friendly, professional, and laid back (whenever opportune), you will get the opportunity to interact with a wide variety of people and students from different backgrounds and majors. They are extremely flexible with your schedule as long as you put in your 15 hours/ 4 school days per week AND you complete all tasks within the deadlines issued. You will be given the opportunity to learn about various International Study Abroad trips and countries while you're doing your work.

    Cons

    School has them located in a small single family house converted into office.
    School sets guidelines on what they can pay their student assistants.
    All the student assistants are segmented between 3 floors and it takes a bit of effort to meet and interact with your peers.

    Pros

    Medical and Dental Benefits, Pension

    Cons

    Parking is horrible. Employee lots are limited so the employees end up having to pay for parking or walking 2 miles to their office

    Stop micro-managing the employees, we are not children.
