    Great opportunity to build career before graduation

    Operations Manager (Former Employee)
    Dayton, OH

    ProsUD cares a lot about their students and provides many ways for them to succeed while still in school. One of these ways is through student employment. I always felt encouraged by the staff and was able to build quality relationships with not only the staff but my student co-workers as well. The staff encouraged success with academics by providing leniency and flexibility with work schedules. All while helping students to build skills to use in their future careers

    ConsThe administration. Some students are working to put themselves through college and putting a cap on hours per week prevents us from doing that. Threatening to fire us if we work too much is absurd.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWork with students and receive their input before making decisions.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Student Employee

    Student Assistant (Current Employee)
    Dayton, OH

    ProsGetting job experience in college. Gaining experience in customer service is important for almost any career path, and a student job will almost always have that component.

    ConsNot all of the available campus jobs are set up in a way that takes into consideration a student's schedule.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAs a university employing students, classes and homework need to be taken into consideration when determining student employee responsibilities and regulations.
