    I worked at UNC Wilmington part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    My bosses were amazing, gained exceptional knowledge about the Business school, lots of leadership opportunity if you want it, work as much or as little as you want, can do homework on downtime, friendly staff, an excellent place to network with advisors and professors in the business school.

    Cons

    If there are not a lot of other student helpers you could end up working a lot of hours but the scheduling manager works with your needs.

    I have been working at UNC Wilmington part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The people I work with are very friendly and many genuinely care and are helpful.

    Cons

    I have worked for UNCW for almost 8 years continuously as a “temporary part-time” instructor despite carrying a full course load multiple times. I was told I could find permanent full-time employment eventually then a couple years ago was told it would never happen because I didn’t have a PhD despite always having stellar reviews from my department reviews. I don’t have any benefits and rarely receive raises even though permanent employees receive raises about every two years. Many of the developmental resources like workshops are not available to “temporary” employees.

    This is the only job I’ve ever had that made me want to kill myself. As soon as I find something permanent elsewhere I’m gone.

    Advice to Management

    Try to match policies to your rhetoric. They say they care about employees but policies like UNPAID maternity leave suggest otherwise.

    Have resources for your long term employees to move into better positions or at least offer permanent positions so they can better themselves. This is ridiculous.

    I worked at UNC Wilmington part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - friendly coworkers and management
    -made your own schedule
    -provided clients
    -could recruit your own clients
    -low supervision from managers unless you needed them

    Cons

    - low pay for position
    -made to do special events that were rarely attended because of poor advertisement

    Advice to Management

    When planning for special events for personal trainers do proper advertising around campus and on social media. It was a pain to stand around for 3-4 hours at a time with no one showing up for the event.
