    Pros

    Willing to work to accommodate class schedule when possible. Learned a lot about hiring procedures as well as information about job search resources.

    Cons

    There were some very slow days where there wasn't always a lot of work to do, so it could get boring at times. Must pace yourself so you don't finish daily work too fast.

    Pros

    Hours will work around your school schedule. No dress code. A good chance to practice and review classes I've already taken.

    Cons

    Many of the tutors are HS running start students, so the level of professionalism is quite low.

    Pros

    The people are the best part. Have wonderful and competent coworkers. Can't recommend them highly enough. Very team oriented in my division.

    Cons

    The team approach is not across campus. There are definitely divisions between the various departments.

    Pros

    Set hours. Flexible. Rewarding work. Option to work up to 40 hours a week in between quarters.

    Overall it's been a great place to work. Everyone starts out working phones, but the longer you are there, the more fun and interesting things you get to do. Helping fix people's computer issues is personally rewarding, and making people smile always brightens your day.

    Cons

    Work can be slow at times.

  9. Loved my coworkers but the management is poor.

    Pros

    Very comfortable and they very strongly encourage you to focus on school with the job as a secondary responsibility, which is nice.

    Cons

    Management does not appreciate its employees properly.

    Pros

    Location, great co-workers and office environment.

    Cons

    No raises due to salary freeze the entire 4 years I was there. Upper management and VP's lack communication with employees. Lack of community.

    Pros

    Most of the IT techs were regular student employees, so there was a lot of camaraderie and everyone got along.

    Cons

    Training was almost non-existent. Work was monotonous and interns didn't have a lot of opportunities to get hands-on training on the other aspects of the IT field.

    Advice to Management

    Get a structured training plan implemented and provide more hands-on training opportunities for the student employees for a more rewarding experience.
