    I worked at New Jersey City University part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I'd like that it was close knit group to work with, easy work load, entertained environment.

    Cons

    There are times where some of the workers were negative towards you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    raise the pay for student workers to do the jobs that people who get salaries that should be doing but the students are doing, I mean they are handling sensitive information
