    You can make a difference at an institution this size. It is transformative for many students.

    There are negatives at any place. The vast majority of the employees are friendly, dedicated bunch with a few odd ducks.

    Wonderful supervisor! It's a pretty easy job with minimal pay but it's a great resume builder. Boss is very patient and flexible with our school schedule.

    I have been working at UW-Parkside as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Dr. Rogers largely lets you work independently, but will always answer a text you send to him, builds plants identification skills, GIS skills, learn different techniques

    Cons

    HR can sometimes be slow in responding to paperwork, being so independent can seem daunting at first

    I have been working at UW-Parkside part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Its a relaxed enviornment since we are all student workers. The shifts are short usually less than 6 hours giving us more time to concentrate on our school work.

    Cons

    The pay is low and sitting around sometimes gets a little boring but it could be worse.
