    I worked at Wisconsin Union part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very neat payments as a part time student job, the working environment is good. Great team with a good atmosphere to work with.

    Cons

    Shifts not flexible and sometimes requires a hard physical labor in a short period. The burden varies based on time.

    Advice to Management

    More training and detailed manual to new employees is preferred. Otherwise I have no more advice to give based on my personal experience working at Wisc Union.

    Pros

    Everyone is very nice and personable. Hands-down the best employer I have ever worked for. If you have the opportunity to work for them, DO! They are very flexible with schedules and very supportive with future endeavors.

    Cons

    Slow human resources process. Sometimes responses are delayed and it takes a little bit for a promotion or raise to be entered into the system.

    maybe raise the hourly salary.
