    I worked at Southern Polytechnic State full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The Pros would be:
    There is such a positive culture here at police dept.
    I get the training I want.
    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.
    Do not change the way you guys work.

    Pros

    Working with the students, something different from corporate, slower pace, more time off

    Cons

    Biggest challenge is the low pay and not much room for professional growth unless you use access to classes to move elsewhere

    Former Employee - Graduate Assistant  in  Marietta, GA
    Former Employee - Graduate Assistant in Marietta, GA

    I worked at Southern Polytechnic State part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The environment is calm and relaxed. Professors are very smart, and have a high capacity of knowledge of the construction industry as a whole. Employee are more than willing to teach and assist students when asked.

    Cons

    Actual work for GA was not specified to all candidates. Some workers had semester long projects. This left other workers with just busy work to complete for daily tasks.

    Did not get a good sense of high level work experience in the construction industry from some employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bringing in younger professionals that can liven the atmosphere of the department. Wish there was a more personal relationship between students and teachers. This could help students feel more comfortable asking questions about their future in construction and the industry as a whole.
