    I worked at Point Park University part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Close proximity to town, students are enthusiastic. Friendly and professional faculty and staff.

    Cons

    Underpaid staff. It’s too expensive to commute by bus daily and the University doesn’t reimburse parking or transit. They will keep your hours in check so you can’t gain any benefits.

    Advice to Management

    More staff would stay if wages were better across the board.

      Pros

      Access to free education and paid Holidays

      Cons

      Lower pay scale than other surrounding institutions with similar job titles. Promotions not based on merit but favoritism. Cramped space with inadequate ventilation for some offices. Verbally abusive faculty with no regard for ticketing systems and time management. Overpromising and Underdelivering from Management.

      Advice to Management

      Value your employees first.
