    I worked at Valparaiso University (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Paid Professional Development, Great company culture, flexible scheduling

    Cons

    Work can feel monotonous and isolated, Hit "peak" of job within a year and a half - only way for growth is to move to a new position


  5. "Student Employee"

    I worked at Valparaiso University part-time

    Pros

    The cafe will work to accommodate your school schedule. It usually is pretty easy work, it just can get busy at times.

    Cons

    The pay is really low and usually they are understaffed. It leads to huge rushes during passing periods.

    Advice to Management

    Give higher pay incenses to those who always show up on time. Don't increase all the prices on the food every year.
