I worked at Eastern Illinois University part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great benefits, excellent people, down to earth attitude with minimal B.S.

Cons

The campus is located in a less-populated area making creature comforts like shopping malls a bit of a drive. If you can survive without those malls, you can surly rough it here.

Advice to Management

Have benefits to Student Workers. They make up a great deal of your work force and the only thing they get out of it is minimum wage at-best.

    Pros

    EIU has a lot of different employment opportunities. This one is a hidden gem. Available to student with nice hours(20 max as all university jobs), and has nothing to do with food.

    Cons

    You take a small aptitude test to get hired; fixing simple computer issues,simple application knowledge on office and Dreamweaver, and computer hardware. So those with no technical knowledge it might be difficult. It can also be a little boring.


  2. "Very friendly environment, employers, and co-workers"

    Pros

    Each department have their own work environment. The geography/geology department is very friendly, open, and pleasing. The people work well together, very social, and helpful to others (inside and outside the department).

    Cons

    I have worked in other departments (the food court) and are not very fair to student workers. They tend to look down onto the students and only allow them to work short and small amount of hours. The benefits that you receive as a student worker is just a hourly pay and the low level of student insurance. Not very much fun, friendliness, and not enjoyable.
