    A Great Healthcare Setting!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Hattiesburg, MS

    ProsSince most employees have been there for years (decades for many) there is a strong family atmosphere. It seems that most employees genuinely enjoy their work, the patients, and the university setting.

    ConsSometimes employees are too relaxed which can make their behavior seem less than professional at times. Also, pay could be better.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake high standards for excellence and stick to them.

    Perfect job for a student who would like some extra cash.

    Desk Assistant (Former Employee)
    Hattiesburg, MS

    ProsGreat hours, great pay, perfect way to study and make financial gain simultaneously. The job has little responsibility, and depending on the supervisor, it can be a fun and sociable experience.

    ConsIt's a customer service job, and sometimes a supervisor will treat you with little respect. Also, make sure that you can make the hours that you schedule in advance, and try to trade shifts early. It is only part-time, so the max you can work is 20 hours.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSome supervisors tend to micromanage and impose borderline ridiculous rules. The management needs to focus on providing a better experience at the University, not impose ridiculous rules that make it

    A good place to work, but some major compensation flaws.

    Full Time Tenured Professor (Current Employee)
    Hattiesburg, MS

    ProsGood administration and caring people, a real effort to support faculty and programs. Great location, decent culture and respect for the arts.

    ConsNo real admissions policy, a great cross section of students, very diverse, but some very low performing students as well. Lots of duties piled on faculty, not enough time to do research. Very poor compensation for faculty and staff, no raises in years.

    Efficient, People that care"

    Circulation Manager (Former Employee)
