    I worked at Southern Polytechnic State part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible with hours to allow for class time. Not stressful. Free time allowed me to get studying done during slow times at work.

    Cons

    Department was disorganized. Sometimes other full time employees were slow to respond/get things done. Being Consolidated with Kennesaw University means some will lose their jobs.

    Pros

    The Pros would be:
    There is such a positive culture here at police dept.

    Command staff works with you to keep campus safe. Also, they are always available if you need to talk to them or need advice.

    Cons

    I could not get the shift I wanted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to Command Staff, the way you interact with the officers is an example of TRUE LEADERSHIP.
