    Pros

    I worked for the college of business at St. Petersburg. Relaxed and engaging atmosphere. Getting to know the admin staff and professors in a different light, not just from the student perspective, was great. I was just a receptionist/admin assistant. The work was more or less easy when it came. I was able to level up my microsoft office skills. As a student, they were very understanding with my schedule and it was very flexible. Even when I worked for as a regular employee, it was still fairly flexible. Being at a university, you keep up to date with what is happening in certain fields and in the community. It was a fun time.

    Cons

    I had numerous days of just twiddling my thumbs at my desk, praying for someone to have some work for me. If you work overtime, it's not added to your paycheck. Instead, they set up a fund of some sort where they invest that money for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communication open across the board. The reception staff dont need the full info but a little heads up about a small event would be nice to better serve those that participate in said events.
