    I have been working at University of Southern Indiana part-time (more than 3 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Former Employee - Student Worker in Evansville, IN

    I worked at University of Southern Indiana part-time (more than an year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I worked at University of Southern Indiana part-time

    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.

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

    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.

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

    I worked at University of Southern Indiana full-time (more than an year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    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.

    I have been working at University of Southern Indiana full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent retirement benefits, employee fee waiver for undergraduate and graduate level courses, dependent fee waiver (75%), childcare, fitness center..

    Cons

    Pay increases are based on amount the state appropriates. This stinks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to balance those who are overworked and those who are underworked. Find ways to balance this.
