  1. "Student's Art Gallery"

    I worked at Northern Michigan University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great way to get hands on experience in all areas of participation in an artist run gallery while still in school. Gallery was primarily run by current students with a faculty advisor so there were many opportunities to learn and make the job what you wanted it to be and were interested in. I would highly recommend it to current art students especially.

    Cons

    Position was part of Work-Study so may not be accessible to all students, this also limited amount of hours one could work in a week. It would be nice if you know you have a light week of classes (no crits, exams etc.) you could pick up shifts for colleagues needing time off to study or prep for exams, crits, etc.

    Pros

    Amazing campus and the people are amazing as well. This could be a pro or a con but pace of life as well is very slow can be good and bad depending on how you see it. Work/Life balance is really great as well.

    Cons

    Pay is lower than it should be. This could be a pro or a con but pace of life as well is very slow can be good and bad depending on how you see it.

    Student employees were capped at 20 hours per week as a full time student.

    I worked at Northern Michigan University (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I was fortunate to have the freedom of introducing my own ideas and see many ideas made a reality.

    Cons

    Management on many occasions let the freedom become too much. More managing was needed.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on managers having a specific purpose, rather than all doing the same thing. There was too much overlap.

    - Supervisors were very warm and supportive, which created great culture.
    - This was a work study position, so they offered flexible scheduling to work around my classes.
    - Great opportunity to learn general office skills.

    - Since this was funded by the work study program wage rate was not as competitive.

    Pros

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

    Pros

    It's great working at NMU because you can go to work in-between classes and make your own schedule. I've worked two jobs on campus and both of my bosses have been more than willing to work around my class schedule.

    Cons

    The downside of working at NMU is that most on-campus jobs do not provide any opportunity for advancement. It is rare that you will ever make above minimum wage while working an on-campus job.
