I have been working at Western Michigan University part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Flexible hours, especially with class schedules and student life. Opportunity for growth within organization (student leadership opportunities). Get to see many of the facilities and faculty that large portion of students never see. Also, working with peers who are also students can be fun, and valuable. Worked with many international students, provides some interesting insight to how greatly different student life can be for people attending the same school. Also teaches one how to effectively communicate with coworkers and customers.

Cons

Random hours, no set schedule. Worked many early mornings, late nights and weekends. Many large contracts that provided students with lots of opportunity to work were lost in the time while I was employed. There is usually enough hours available to those who are really flexible and can pick up shifts, but overall there was a decline in work opportunities, leading to less opportunity to earn money.

    Keep an eye on the employees. The leads don't actually work. They just browse reddit and play gameboy.
