    I worked at Towson University part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Flexible with school schedule; if you know the right people you can get a free ride to class from your work area or one of the parking garages; discounts on various activities around campus; once a quarter in the area I worked in they served a Student Employee Appreciation lunch - pizza, soda, some snacks; get to attend cookouts/ barbecues if your building had them.

    Cons

    Treated like a child / low man on the totem pole most of the time; as soon as they find someone to fill your spot as a real employee, you're let go, no notice or anything; I worked there for two years and never got a raise, although I worked hard and proved myself to everyone, Student Employees "just don't get raises" cause you'll be gone in x amount of years; no room for growth...

    Advice to Management

    Treat your student employees like the adults they're trying to be or become. Offer SOMETHING to those of us who put in the work, time, and energy to do your bidding, even if it "can't be a raise." If you can't give someone more money simply because they're a student employee, offer school credits, a letter of recommendation, or SOMETHING that isn't just the same food that you offer your regular employees.

      I worked at Towson University part-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      I had a student job that was very flexible and fun to work with fellow students. It was a typical minimum wage job, nothing special

      Cons

      There obviously wasn't much room for growth, because I was just a student worker. Raises were minimal and I eventually left because I wasn't going anywhere.

      Advice to Management

      I don't think my job had much to do with Towson's management itself. I was in a sub-department which had a pretty typical manager who asked for more than we were getting paid for.
