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

    Pros

    The full time employees were always so kind to me and helpful whenever I had questions. I really grew as a person at Milner Library.

    Cons

    Honestly, only real con I can think of is that the pay is minimum wage. However it's a student position so that was not surprising.
