    Former Employee - Recreation Services Student Supertivsor in Cape Girardeau, MO

    I worked at Southeast Missouri State University part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    - On campus so for any student it is very close distance by car or even walking
    - Virtually no conflict on the job
    - Some positions even allow time to work on homework if not busy

    Cons

    - Pay could definitely be better but that is the case for most jobs
    - If you get put on the same shift as someone that is not a hard worker it can be frustrating feeling you are stuck with all the work

    Southeast Missouri State was a good place to work.

    Former Employee - Graduate Assistant in Cape Girardeau, MO
    Former Employee - Graduate Assistant in Cape Girardeau, MO

    I worked at Southeast Missouri State University part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    You get a lot of guidance and support here. You don't have too many responsibilities. The managers are flexible if you need to switch a class a coworker once or twice.

    Cons

    You don't get much freedom to take classes into your own hands. The pay is pretty low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase the salary.

    Great work environment, simple schedule and job duties, easy to pick up shifts on the tradeboard, phenomenal manager, you get to interact with students on campus
