    I worked at University of Dayton part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great understanding of the need to balance studies, while earning decent campus wages. The managers are also excellent and are flexible to work around your needs.

    Cons

    There are too many student employed, meaning you will be scheduled for on average 10 hours/week. Additionally, there can be times when regardless of student events you have going on - you must attend misc meetings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work!

    Very eye widening job at research institute of University of Dayton. UDRI

    Former Employee - Energy Engineer in Dayton, OH

    I worked at University of Dayton part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Working under supervision of Prof. Kelly Kissock as one of the most prominent people in the field of energy efficiency. Energy auditing in different manufacturing facilities help employees to be very flexible.

    Cons

    Multi nationality of employees was a barrier for communication in initial weeks.

    Former Employee - Operations Manager in Dayton, OH

    I worked at University of Dayton part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    UD 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

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Work with students and receive their input before making decisions.
