    I worked at Western Michigan University part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Flexible hours, able to work around class schedule
    - Easy to get someone to cover your shift if you cannot work
    - Other student co-workers great to work with
    - Job looks great on a resume especially if you are a Criminal Justice major

    Cons

    - Sworn personnel (police officers and sergeants) act like they are better than you and try to take advantage of you
    - Most full time staff and sworn personnel do not recognize that you are also an employee of their department even though you work equally as hard as they do
    - Full time staff and sworn personnel will also talk about you behind your back and spread false rumors about you.
    - Overall felt that the department does not care about their student employees (along with other students at the university) and view you as low class

    Advice to Management

    - Recognize that the student employees at your department also serve an important purpose to your operations.
    - Create ways to improve relationships between student employees and full time staff/sworn personnel.
