Friendly staff with poor pay

Facility/Event Management Intern (Former Employee)
Morehead, KY

I worked at Morehead State University as an intern for less than a year

ProsThe coworkers are tremendous to be around, down to earth and very helpful.

ConsCompensation is very poor overall, work very hard for very little pay. Although this is understandable for a small university with one of the smallest operating budgets in the U.S.

Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease salaries for the ones who deserve it or they will find another business to work for

The work was easy, and I was able to work quite a few hours, so in the end it was definitely worth working there.

Tutor (Former Employee)
Morehead, KY

I worked at Morehead State University part-time for more than a year

ProsI made my own hours, usually got to work on my homework at work, there wasn't much that challenged me, and it paid well enough that I didn't have to work another job as well.

ConsIt paid minimum wage, whereas some of my friends made quite a bit more doing the same amount of work, I occasionally had run ins with superiors, and it had nothing to do with my major or what I wanted to do after college.

Advice to Senior ManagementUp the pay a bit, so that you don't have to hire anyone that applies, since a lot of the new tutors have no idea what they're doing.

Morehead State is a wonderful university with friendly staff and wonderful job experiences available for a student.

Student Technology and Resource Specialist (Current Employee)
Morehead, KY

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

Pros- Flexible hours

- Experience as a student. You will learn how to be a customer service representative, issues with networking, work order systems, troubleshooting hardware and software issues, etc.

ConsThe only con that I can come up with is that the training for this position is from felling students in the position, not technicians that are there as mentors to guide us.

Pros-Flexible time, good colleagues, peaceful environment to work, good staff and overall good students.

MSU

Student Worker (Current Employee)
Morehead, KY

I have been working at Morehead State University

ProsThe best reason to work for Morehead State University is that I go to school here. Another reason is that it is a small town. This means there is less traffic than a city.

ConsBeing in a small town is also a downside. During the summer, Morehead State University is a ghost town.

Advice to Senior ManagementSpend money for efficiently.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
