    I have been working at University of Kentucky part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work schedule is crafted around class schedule.
    Required hours per week are minimal with the option to pick up more shifts
    Co-workers are very easy to get along with and make work enjoyable
    Patrons are usually also very enjoyable
    The work isn't difficult

    Cons

    Pay & raises are sub-par compared to other on/off campus positions
    Management can be very rigid even when unnecessary
    Many of the meetings during the semester, especially for supervisors & managers, are more of a waste of time

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the amount of meetings if the information presented can just as easily be delivered in an email
    Don't waste time playing games at mentor meetings
