    I worked at UIC Pavilion full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working here for over 5 years, I had a great time and got to know some really great people. My immediate boss was great and we had a very direct and clear line of communication. Great benefits, they were willing to work around your schedule if you wanted to take classes.

    Cons

    Some rough overnight hours while working other days in a standard 9-5 format made planning anything difficult and left me tired. Upper management has changed since I left but had an unclear vision while I was there which was frustrating. Wages were below average which is why I ultimately left.

    long work hours, having to work overnight the day before classes, people do not always show up for their shift.

    I have been working at UIC Pavilion part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    a good place for study and a good place for living since the short distance from downtown. the research resource center makes it possible for you to carry out some "expensive" experiments

    Cons

    living cost around it is high that is the only cons you may want to concern comparing to the college cities.

    -People are fun to work with
    -The hours you work re flexible around your lifestyle
    -Working nights was not bad
    -Close to the UIC campus
    -People do not know how long your breaks are...you can do whatever you want most the time

    Cons

    -People you work with are not very smart

    I worked at UIC Pavilion part-time

    Pros

    Great job for extra spending money while talking college courses. Fun environment around some great sporting and music events.

    Cons

    The biggest con around working at the UIC Pavilion was cleaning up after the shows were over.

    Pros

    I loved working at the UIC Pavillion. I was given the chance to make a real impact at my school.

    Cons

    I wish there was more flexibility in the hours and that training was a quicker process.
    Not big cons at all though.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for having the interest of the students in mind. Best job at UIC! I have and will continue to recommend working here to all students.
