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

    Pros

    The pay was decent for an admin assistant, but not worth the treatment.

    Cons

    The Chief of the branch is scary to say the least. He yells at employees and everyone scurries around scared of him. Stay far away. You can find a better position.
