    Pros

    *Have a student-first policy in regards to student-employee, which means that your work will never interfere with your studies.
    *Afford student-employees a significant degree of autonomy.

    Cons

    *As silly as it may sound, the system for logging worked hours can be difficult to use and easy to forget about.

    Advice to Management

    The opportunities for students on campus go far beyond what are offered at many other universities and have been a great facet of my college experience here.

    I worked at University of Kentucky part-time

    Pros

    The job pays well and I was able to interact with interesting people. I enjoyed working at the Children's Garden and I liked the services it provided.

    Cons

    The work required was difficult, and we had to work on Saturday and Sunday. In addition it's dependent on the weather, so sometimes work would be canceled.

    Advice to Management

    I think the Children's Garden is still new and improving, but it needed more structure and goals. I think it'll improve with time though.
