    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Kalamazoo, Michigan

    Best thing is the retirement match and the amount of paid leave. Do not fall for "free education" it is still the same as any other business with reimbursement

    It has small workload, flexing working time. And also , the department chair is really nice. Hardware is bad. The salary is not very high to cover living expends.

    The more you work, the better opportunities they provide to you. If you just do your work, you will stay in the same place for a long time

    StarStarStarStarStar Current IT Systems Specialist in Kalamazoo, Michigan

    Having working for both a large corporation and a small company, the benefits at WMU are excellent offering 401k with matching (forgetting %), health, vision and dental as well as many coverage options. Being higher education, you can also take classes for free as a full time employee. WMU promotes balanced life/work offering decent allocation of time off (vacation, sick, etc). There more to the benefits package that I don't take advantage of that I wish I could remember and add here. In general, the benefit offerings are very good.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Student Worker in Kalamazoo, Michigan

    As a part time worker in the cafeteria, the only perk you get is a free meal when you work. Depending on which dining hall you work in, you may get the weekends off. Hours are very flexible. You basically get to work when you want as long as you sign up for your shifts early.
