    I worked at Murray State University

    Pros

    My schedule was very flexible so I could attend class and my boss was great. Since it is a university, education came first so I was never stressed between work and class.

    Cons

    Any student will complain about the rate of pay, but as a student position it was expected. It was good enough to support a college student living on campus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication is key. Be clear with what you're trying to tell people to do.

    I worked at Murray State University as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    received personal office, individual support from professors. Bonding between Graduate students and professors. Opportunity to take on teaching duties with request for specific topics.

    Cons

    Program is not challenging. Teaching Assistant duties changed when I started and were not working. Basically served as a grader. Program is largely unorganized because everything is being changed. Environment was very casual and not professional. Complete lack of respect between professors and students a the undergraduate level.

    I worked at Murray State University part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Very simple work, Worked as ITV tech in high school part time. All I had to do was fax assignments between locations, proctor test, and ensure connections were established at the correct time. Very relaxed atmosphere.

    Cons

    Lots of downtime when there isn't anything going on, or if a class gets canceled. But as a high schooler, it gave me time to do homework.
