    I have been working at Florida State University part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Director is very understanding in my department, works completely around my school schedule and is everything you would want in a boss.

    Cons

    The pay schedule is based off of an hourly recording system and doesn't get submitted until you reach 50 hours and it takes nearly 2 weeks to process, so pay dates are very irregular.

    Advice to Management

    Move to digital filing systems!
