I have been working at University of Nebraska as an intern (More than a year)

Pros

Working here as an intern was very challenging and provided me with a great opportunity to learn about the inner-workings of non-profit organizations. The people are great and they work very hard to keep the laid back culture that helps people thrive here. People are generally always happy and always approachable with any questions or comments. As an intern, I was even approached by upper management about comments and concerns with the current way of operation.

Cons

While it was challenging for the first year, it became monotonous after a while.

Advice to Management

Continue to work hard to not let the culture morph into the cold corporate feel that other employers suffer from.

    I have been working at University of Nebraska part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It fits in perfectly with class schedule. You can give a tour between classes. The management is very approachable and helpful. They are easy to forgive mistakes and provide advice for improvement. Honors tour guides get many nice perks, such as lunches and reserved tours. More hours too.

    Cons

    It is a feeding frenzy at times when there are more tour guides than tours. It's first come first serve, so if you do not arrive 15 minutes early, you probably won't get a tour. They have hired to many people. Few people get more than 5 hours a week.

    Advice to Management

    Work more diligently to find people that can definitely work the times you need instead of the shotgun approach of hiring almost everyone expecting many to quit. A big reason people quit is because hours are too few.
