    I worked at SUNY Albany part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people were great, and the schedule was predictable. I knew that I would have certain months off due to the school calendar, and I knew what events would be busier than others.

    Also the fact that I had full benefits even though I was part time. That was a huge pro.

    Cons

    Not getting a single raise in the 4 years I was employed by the PAC. I also seemed to pick up everyone's shift all the time, I enjoyed my job, but I didn't like to do everyone's job.
