    Pros

    They'll work around your class schedule and understand if you have a big test or exam coming up. Most of the supervisors are great. If you're a student, I don't believe the pay is taxed.

    Cons

    The pay isn't amazing but it's something to do that's close by if you live close or on campus. There are no benefits for part time but that's expected.

    Advice to Management

    Employees could do with a little more pay or incentives. listening to your employees is really important, and I'm sure that most of us have kind words to say but if there are complaints it wouldn't hurt to address them.

    Pros

    Fellow staff and students are a pleasure to work with. Very easy-going.

    Cons

    The pay is low, considering private math tutoring can be easily over $15/hour.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the pay to tutors that have experience and proven to work well with both the professors and students. We have way too many lazy tutors sitting around while the good ones do all the work.

    Pros

    Students could easily work during the school semester while attending class. If there was down time in the financial aid office, homework could be completed regularly.

    Cons

    There were multiple times that many letters/forms had to be sent out. This was one of the least favorite activities that the office required.

    Advice to Management

    If certain students are visibly putting in more effort in the office, then that student should be compensated. Many of the student workers show that they are not concerned with working at all when they are on their shift.

    Pros

    I was given the opportunity to take on many responsibilities -- much more than the typical student assistant duties one would normally think of. This position was the launching pad for my professional career. I loved who I worked with and the experience & skills I was able to develop.

    Cons

    As a student employee, I was only paid minimum wage despite the quality of my work. Small potatoes in the grand scheme of things.


  9. I loved my job at the University of Southern Indiana because I liked working with the students and helping them.

    Pros

    I learned a lot from working here. I loved the diversity of the students. I felt satisfied when helping students who needed help.

    Cons

    Although I loved my job, they don't pay too well. They don't promote from within too much.

    Advice to Management

    I was always looking for ways to make my job better but it wasn't wanted. You don't care if people do a good job; just as long as people show up for work and not make waves is the most important thing for you.

    Pros

    Everyone from all departments are nice, friendly, and helpful. Great network of people to learn from and work with. Everything is explained clearly from the beginning and everyone takes time to answer questions.

    Cons

    The pay isn't great but I guess comparable to other jobs in the same line of work. I would have liked to see better starting wages and better rate increases. There really weren't a lot of drawbacks, mainly just the low pay. It's also a lengthy hiring process; from the time I applied until I was hired, it was probably close to 2 months.


  11. My experience working for the University of Southern Indiana was enjoyable and fulfilling.

    Pros

    One of the best reasons to work at the University of Southern Indiana is the opportunity to work with a diverse staff as well as getting to network with many people.

    Cons

    One of the downsides to working at the University of Southern Indiana is the inconsistency when it comes to how different housing staffs operate.
