    Overall not bad, but could be better

    Student Worker (Current Employee) Saint Paul, MN

    ProsA good thing is that it is easy to find on-campus employment, especially in dining services.

    Conssometimes the managers are a bit weird though. strict policies regarding taking home food and texting. Not friendly to religion.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider making a more professional environment.

    Interesting yet flexible

    Student Assistant (Former Employee) Saint Paul, MN

    ProsGood job as a student. There was opportunity to help on projects and some variety in your tasks. Also, if there wasn't any work, supervisors were fine with me doing my own homework, reading, etc. Being able to go on vacation was flexible since it wasn't PTO. Good experience for those wanting an accounting or auditing career

    ConsDays in the summer can get long and boring since not much work going on.

    Positive work experience as a student employee while attaining my degree

    Marketing and Communications Coordinator (Current Employee) Saint Paul, MN

    ProsWorking at the university exposed me to a medium sized business with a lot of cross-departmental opportunities. Some of the best benefits I have ever seen at an organization.

    ConsThe working environment in most departments is a bit stagnant and heavy on hierarchy.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire St. Thomas students! They are well trained - or, at least their tuition debt would lead you to believe they are.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It was a good way to gain experience.

    Adjunct Faculty (Former Employee) Saint Paul, MN

    ProsIt's the largest private university in Minnesota with national connections.

    ConsWorking as adjunct faculty makes it difficult to pay the bills. The culture is very conservative.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe arts are an essential part of a liberal arts education.

    Great student work

    Office Assistant (Former Employee)

    ProsThe work asked to be done was simple and straightforward. It was "busy" work that helped me to get those needed extra dollars while being a full-time student. My supervisors were good people and treated me fairly. The work was quiet and easily accomplished.

    ConsSometimes there was not enough work to be done, so I did not know exactly what to do. Also, I would complete tasks rather quickly and was left twirling my thumbs at times.

    Nice work place for students

    Computer Lab Consultant (Current Employee) Saint Paul, MN

    Prosstudents are nice and the rates are fair
    they provide all kinds of events and services to make students' life more fun and easier, especially for international students

    ConsNot think of any... I had really good time here. I learn, make friends while getting pay. What can I complain about? But if you want to earn more, you should really consider jobs or internship off the campus.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStudent employees are mostly limited to checking in/out through local PC only within the campus. It would be better if makes it possible to check in/out through personal laptops which connected to campus wireless network. My case is sometimes I just forget to check out and when I notice that I am already on the way out of the building. If I can do it on my laptop connected to campus wireless, I don't have to go back and climb up several floors to look for campus PC to check out again. :)

    An Awesome Experience!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsA chance to further your education while making a living is a huge benefit. UST cares for and about their employees.

    ConsIn my specific position, I found the work to be banal at times. The cyclical obligations can make the year feel monotonous.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe management at UST is awesome. I always felt they were pushing us to be better and always kept an open door to listen and respond to questions or concerns.

    I worked as a Statistics tutor for four years.

    Tutor (Former Employee) Saint Paul, MN

    ProsCan do homework during job
    Work independently
    Help students
    Easy to get subs

    ConsCan involve hours of sitting in a room with no students

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet work shirts for the tutors to wear. It would help the students to be able to identify the tutors.
