  1. Basic Student Work

    I worked at University of Memphis

    Pros

    They are flexible with your schedule and seem to generally care about you personally. Great coworkers and a nice atmosphere.

    Cons

    Pay is a little low (for students), but nonexistent travel-time might make up for that for some people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't have any real complaints, so I don't have any particular advice as far as student workers are concerned. I could complain about administration of academia in general, but that had no bearing on this position.

  2. Great place to work

    I have been working at University of Memphis part-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I'm an adjunct professor and get the opportunity to teach a variety of students and classes each year. It is an chance for me to pursue my love for teaching and share information.

    Cons

    The pay is so-so. It is in many ways dependent upon each department's budget. It would be nice for an increase in salary and some other benefits. We do a lot of the "heavy lifting" in terms of class loads.
