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

    Pros

    Flexible work hours and we have good faculty employees. This is the perfect job for a full time student that is taking classes at the same time. We are allowed to work on homework at the job (obviously not when we are doing a task).

    Cons

    Low pay. Other departments offer student works $10 or even $12 an hour! We just get $8.50 an hour

    Advice to Management

    Pay the workers more, we are important and we try our best.

    Pros

    You researched this University before applying.

    Cons

    Do NOT apply. CSU is where "careers come to die". Students are not a priority, staff are even further down on leadership's priority. Enrollment down, finances in crisis. Unethical hiring and spending practices. BEWARE!
