    Pros

    Exciting, everyday is different, you get to work with others who are like minded as well as people who come from a diverse background

    Cons

    The student pay is kind of low, for the hours a student puts in, they could use a stipend instead of hourly

    Advice to Management

    Work with the students a little better, a lot of the time we are a little unsure of what we are doing at firstr

    I worked at Washington State University part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working for a variety of establishments on campus was extremely convenient. I was able to work around my class schedule and had off on holiday breaks etc. I worked o the Pullman campus, I loved the sense of community the campus has to offer.

    Cons

    I think students could be provided with more benefits when working on campus. It can be difficult to manage a full-time student and part-time job. I think more support could be offered to students.

    Advice to Management

    Remind yourself that these employees are students and allow them to put their educations first without consequences to their jobs.

    I worked at Washington State University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Being able to teach a subject to students that I really enjoy. When the students have struggled with lesson and after hours for struggling finally understand. Its a good feeling to have that they get a feeling of finally understanding.

    Cons

    Anytime you have to deal with students, you get some that are disrespectful and want to do no work and get an A.

    I have been working at Washington State University part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    WSU is characterized by a fantastic networking of professors, students, and staff who are all equally invested in promoting the prestige of research and academic studies. My experiences here have far exceeded my expectations and I am incredibly thankful that I can call WSU my school of study.

    Cons

    The only downsides that I have experienced in working for WSU are directly related to the layout of the campus. Though the buildings are beautiful and functional, they are VERY far apart from each other. However, it does give you a chance to enjoy the fresh air!

    Advice to Management

    Management has done a fantastic job of communicating with its staff and students with regards to expectations, technical requirements, and planning. The only advice I have to give is that management continue this in the future, promoting a well-informed and productive environment.
