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

    Pros

    I was a student at Wayne State University for 5 years, and an employee for 2. I worked in both the metal and wood shops at University, mostly so I had unlimited access to the shops for personal use.

    Cons

    There is no woodshop requirement (safety class, basic wood working, etc.) before using their woodshop services, which is not a smart policy to have in place.

    Advice to Management

    Update your policy structure and require all students to have taken a brief introductory session before using any equipment / tools in the wood shop.

  10. "WSU 2016"

    Former Employee - Office Services Clerk, Lead in Detroit, MI

    I worked at Wayne State (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Working at Wayne State University provides an abundance of good sound employment opportunity's. The opportunity is surpassed, only by the beautiful college environment right in the middle of the Metro Detroit Area.

    I could go on for hours about the University, ranked 43 out of over 400 national institutions of higher learning, for research. Competence and professionalism are hallmarks of the faculty. So, be you faculty, staff or students you can't go wrong at Wayne State.

    Cons

    A couple pet peeves of mine while employed there was at peak rush hour periods, mobility can be difficult. It can be difficult logistically when it snows over 6 inches. Those are minor complaints considering the magnitude of the University's responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
