I was able to get to know more professors in the physics department and the dining hall was filled with student workers who were just like myself. We could relate to each other as we were working to pay our way thru college.

Cliquey and Gossipy High school like work environment
Office Assistant (Former Employee), Mount Pleasant, MIJuly 14, 2014
Pros: pay for you books each semester if you work three events
Cons: on average only 10 hours a week, minimum wage, no breaks, interferes with classes
A typical day at work usually consisted of a variety of small projects continuously and interchangeably being worked on. Although there was enjoyable music to listen to in the store, the louder and more frequent sounds were from the other managers gossiping about each other or other employees. The management enjoyed the gossip and encouraged it with – more... in the workplace environment. Also, if you made a mistake management would jump on the chance to tell you in a harsh and sometimes public manner. Finally the scheduling was absolutely terrible and interfered with my classes and family commitments during every holiday break. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the work environment everyday. The most enjoyable part of the job was dealing directly with the customers and making the CMU students and faculty's lives a little bit easier. – less

Administrative Assistant (Current Employee), Troy, MIJune 5, 2014
Pros: free tickets to events, great catered food, wonderful instructors and professors
Cons: meetings in far away locations, difficult students
A typical day would consist of students wanting assistance registering for class, answering financial aid questions, making sure monitors have correct information for that night class. If hosting an event make sure everything is going to go smoothly. The most enjoyable part of the job is no matter what center you are at around the country we are all – more... one great team and we like each other. – less

SAP Basis Administrator (Former Employee), Mount Pleasant, MichiganApril 11, 2014
I had a very active work life, and was required to work a great deal outside normal working hours. However, the stress levels tended to be relatively low and the campus was a lovely place to spend time outdoors and to walk. Management was mixed. We were micro-managed or the management was uninvolved. That made our jobs a lot harder than they needed – more... to be. – less

Custodian (Former Employee), Mount Pleasant, MIMarch 5, 2014
I learned various cleaning skills. Such as stripping, buffing and waxing floors. Also how to properly clean public areas such as lounges, dorm rooms, and bathrooms. The hardest part of working at CMU was getting everything cleaned in a short time frame. Sometimes we had to call in other crews to help us. My favorite part of the job was the people whom – more... I worked with. They were great people and I had a great crew leader. – less
