    I have been working at Florida State University part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, good pay, and awesome management- an ideal job for current FSU students or recent (bachelors) graduates who wish to gain professional experience

    For the most part, promotions are only available to candidates with graduate degrees. FSU rarely hires individuals who have only completed an undergraduate degree

    Further consider promoting your current employees! Work ethic, loyalty, and performance should determine promotions, not solely education levels
