Pros
Cons

    I worked at Ball State University part-time

    Pros

    Ball State works very hard to ensure working students are able to prioritize class and projects over work. They understand that school always comes first and that the job is second, though hard work and great attendance are still expected. Schedules are flexible and easily manageable.

    Cons

    The pay could be higher, but minimum wage suffices.

    Advice to Management

    Continue prioritizing students' education!

    I worked at Ball State University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I was more than "real world ready" to substitute teach in the Indianapolis township schools like Westlane MS, Belzer MS, North Central HS, and Lawrence North HS.

    Cons

    I graduated with a Master of Arts in Chemistry in Dec 2016. I had been hearing rumor and gossip that they just wanted me to stay longer. I wasn't allowed to change my mind in Jan 2017 and finish with a Master of Science in Chemistry. Just goes to show you can't rely on gossip and rumors to be true.

    Advice to Management

    Ever since leaving the Skyline club,I have had a clear heart about leaving Ball State early being one of the best decisions I've made. Just because I don't have a lot of Linkin or Facebook connections doesn't mean nobody knows or likes me. They know I'm introverted and private. They respect it.
