    Pros

    - Very friendly and supportive work environment - Well organised once shift is secured - Good pay - Great experience for future jobs - A wide range of shift types - Flexible ( 0 hours )

    Cons

    - Long winded, time consuming and outdated process to secure shifts which can take weeks for a single (potential) shift - Shifts can start very early (7am) on some shifts such as open days when there is often very little to do until visitors start to arrive at 9am.

    I worked at University of Leicester full-time

    Pros

    Location and parking are quite good if you're lucky enough to get a permit

    Cons

    Real lack of basic amenities on campus. Not very student friendly in my opinion. Very poor standard of work and real lack of ambition.
