Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep hiring undergraduate students. It's the perfect complement to their studies, and makes them much more attractive to employers.

    I have been working at Brigham Young University (BYU) part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great flexibility with school schedule. Lots of social interaction with students with in your program and from others. Learn behind the scenes of how things work.

    Cons

    Some days can be real boring. Working more then 20 hours during the fall/winter semester is very difficult to even get or convince anyone to get. Wish could be allowed more hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow students to work more in fall/winter semesters.

    I worked at Brigham Young University (BYU)

    Pros

    Flexible hours and training to meet your job/life needs. Can be a great place to get good office experience in a number of different venues, while still letting you be a student or involved in student affairs.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic at times and narrow vision by some managers. Also, the managers they get can sometimes look down on students instead of invest in them. They only bring their outside experience in so if it doesn't fit with what you can do then there will be a gap in skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invite the administration to broaden their view of the school.
