"Great position for a student"

Star Star Star Star Star
Former Employee - Peer Tutor in Tacoma, WA
Former Employee - Peer Tutor in Tacoma, WA

I worked at Pacific Lutheran University part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Working as a peer tutor for the Academic Assistance Center at Pacific Lutheran University was a great student job. The hours are flexible and the bosses are kind. I found that tutoring others helped in my own studies.

Cons

Sometimes it could be very quiet in the office, especially when no students were signed up for tutoring hours. In this case, tutors were supposed to help with administrative tasks, but if you worked outside normal office hours this wasn't entirely applicable, leading to a lot of down time.

    I worked at Pacific Lutheran University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Plenty of hours and great barista experience that can be used later in life. Free coffee is also a huge plus! Also you get to meet quite a few people you may have never interacted before with on campus.

    Cons

    Management sometimes expects too much from employees when it comes to scheduling. They consider working there as an exclusive club and are resistant to hiring more workers to aid scheduling burdens.
    There are also some workers who do not take their job seriously, thus increasing the burden on those who do.

    Advice to Management

    Be more sensitive to your workers' need when it comes to scheduling.
    In addition, work on recognizing the those who consistently work hard and be mindful of those who are taking the position for granted.

    I worked at Pacific Lutheran University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very supportive community with lots of professional development opportunities. Able to complete projects with little or no supervision - trusted to do my job

    Cons

    Pay was very low; upper management did a bad job communicating with everyone

    Advice to Management

    Listen to lower/middle level workers and make changes they recommend - they know what they are talking about. Have departments/offices work together or share how they do things so everyone can learn from each other
