    I have been working at Southeast Missouri State University

    Pros

    Beautiful campus (River Campus) and very nice community

    Cons

    The town is only 50,000 people and it is very conservative.

  3.  

    Great job as a student

    Former Employee - IT Help Desk Assistant
    Former Employee - IT Help Desk Assistant

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

    Pros

    While I can't speak for other positions, working in the IT Department was a great learning experience. I was given the freedom to expand my talents so long as the task at hand was completed, and the atmosphere was great. Management always worked with people as much as possible.

    Cons

    As a student, you are limited to 20 hours or less per week, excluding rare bouts of overtime. Inter-department communication can be lacking at times, but still friendly. No opportunity for growth as a student.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If possible, allow students to work more hours, as 20 hours a week at the student wage is barely enough for cost of living. Allow student workers to have more responsibilities if they demonstrate the ability for them.

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

    I worked at Southeast Missouri State University part-time (less than a 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
