    I worked at James Madison University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fun people to work with and incredibly flexible hours. They do the best they feasibly can to train you.

    Cons

    Minimum wage and high stress environment. Especially for basketball. There are just too many games to ensure high quality referees. I don't know of anyone being turned away or fired.

    Advice to Management

    Higher pay for better officials would help retain talent.
