    I worked at University of Central Florida part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I worked with fantastic leaders who helped me both in my time in college and when I was looking for a more permanent job afterwords! Hours were reasonable and schedule changes were easy for students, meaning I always had time for classes, homework, and work. Most offices close around 5pm and few are open on weekends, which means I was able to keep an active social life as well.

    Cons

    Worked outside in Florida, which was a little rough, but it wasn't anything I wasn't prepared for.

    I worked at University of Central Florida part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The scheduling is very flexible and there is a lot of downtime during the day shifts. There is a lot of room for growth if you want to take on more responsibility. Coworkers are really great and fun and like to hang out outside of work.

    Cons

    The communication between the upper management and the actual workers can be disconnected and lead to tension, but they try to be better. Night shifts get a lot of the grunt work which is irritating. The turnover can be kind of high making scheduling irregular They will schedule you night shifts even if you don't have a car which makes you have to pay for an uber or walk home in the dark.
