Featured Review

Current Employee - Parking Cashier

I have been working at University of Iowa part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

The job is student friendly. You have time to study during your shifts. You are allowed to find replacement for your shifts and trade them with other cashiers.

Cons

During football seasons the morning shifts start at 5:30 am on Saturday.

Former Employee - ITS Onsite Technician

I worked at Iowa State University part-time

Pros

People are great, If you work hard you are rewarded, management is laid back and doesn't micro manage as long as you do your job well.

Cons

Pretty much Zero formal on-boarding training. There is a hand book but its vague. You learn on the job and if you're not a "go getter" you may struggle.

Advice to Management

Give raises based on performance not time committed. This may help you keep more skilled techs for longer periods of time.
