    I worked at Point Loma Nazarene University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working in team environments and communicating with college residents helped me to gain skills in customer service. Gave me great experience

    Cons

    Not the best infrastructure, training, or management in terms of giving employees opportunities to grow and thrive. The job did not offer appealing or invigorating challenges

    Advice to Management

    My best advice to management is to disallow students from working midnight shifts while school as in session, as it has the possibility to significantly impair a student employees mental health
