    Former Employee - Office Assistant in Saint Louis, MO

    I worked at Saint Louis University part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked as an office assistant in SLU's Student Life Office (part time, undergraduate employment) for 3 years. It was a great place to work - the staff was friendly, hours were extremely flexible, and we always had a great time in the office. I'm confident that if I were interested in further employment at SLU this prior experience would be very helpful as well.

    Cons

    There weren't any pay raises as far as I can remember, but that is to be expected of part time student employment.
