Positive Outlook

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

Pros

Small campus and enrollment so you get to know staff and students easily.
Diverse student body with local, out of state, and foreign students.
Some newer facilities nicely offset the older ones showing positive trend for those thinking of attending.

Cons

Shares campus and classes with affiliated community college so it's not uncommon to find first year community college students enrolling in third year university classes just because they can.

    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    Good community, great students, good work atmosphere, terrific hours.

    Cons

    Extremely low pay that does not reflect the level of education required nor the huge responsibility for educating today's youth.

    Advice to Management

    In order to keep qualified faculty, pay raises are in order.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Fairmont State University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fairmont State is a nice place to work due to the friendly and encouraging atmosphere.

    Cons

    The pacing of the job is slow yet steady. That is not a knock on the university but it does reflect the fact that the school is small. The work involved with the position is mainly in support of various departments and there is not a whole lot of new development going on.

    Advice to Management

    None.
