    Pros

    Working at Dallas Baptist was a good way to become more familiar with what goes on in an office setting. The people were friendly and willing to work around your class schedule.

    Cons

    All student workers are paid the same. Even if you're on tuition remission, the benefits might not outweigh the cons. I saw many students working at DBU long past their expected graduation date because they were on tuition remission and getting their college "paid for" while getting paid a little over minimum wage. Many of these students would have been better served to spend their time in a corporate internship where they would have the opportunity to have a full-time salaried job after graduation.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of using students to take care of the busy work while paying them minimum wage, offer incentives or scholarship opportunities to students who perform better than others. Tuition remission should not be a way to control students into staying at DBU. Good students need to either be put in salaried positions at DBU that will boost their resume or be encouraged to look for jobs and internships elsewhere so that they can finish their studies in a timely manner and not stay at a minimum wage job for many semesters or years after their expected graduation date.

    I worked at Dallas Baptist University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    My supervisors and co-workers were wonderful. Everyone truly cares about each other and the students at the university. The work hours were 8-5 and I was never expected to work outside of those hours.

    Cons

    It tends to get a bit gossipy at times, but a lot of that is out of true concern for co-workers.

    Advice to Management

    The pay could be a little higher for lower level staff members.
