    I have been working at Ferris State University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    My particular program is committed to employee growth and development so that we can become better leaders and change agents during tough economic times in higher education.

    Cons

    Some resistance to change and clinging to an organizational structure that will not serve us much longer. However, there are some incredible thought leaders and they are working toward long term sustainability.

    Advice to Management

    Mine has been excellent and I have learned more than I could have ever imagined.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Ferris State University (Big Rapids, MI) in May 2015.

    Interview

    go through papers, look data up on computer
    the interview was very laid back and they just need someone to fit in for the job.
    the pay was normal and they work around schooling
