Useful for students to have some income while in college
Night Watch Person (Former Employee), Ypsilanti, MiMay 1, 2015
Pros: Works with Class hours
Cons: Boring and repetitive
It's an easy job that's perfect for EMU students. It has reasonable hours that work with you class schedule. The supervisors and student workers all change up every year because it's a job you work while in college. It's all right on campus and nice because there's no commute. Co-workers vary a lot because for some of them it's their first job and they don't understand how to act professionally. Those workers tend to get fired.

The best part of the job is that when there's no one coming and going you're allowed to read or do homework. They even encourage it.

Social Work Intern/Student Assistant (Former Employee), Ypsilanti, MIApril 3, 2015

Productive and team work
Graduate Assistant (Current Employee), Ypsilanti,MIMarch 24, 2015
Pros: Good food and conveyance facilities
Cons: Worker issues
I always had a new task and challenge everyday to overcome. I have learned to be good team worker. The management is good and supportive to entertain most problems that are faced by us. The colleagues are very proactive and supportive. The hardest part was to take decisions in quick time so as to minimize the production loss. The lunch part and tea part was most enjoyable as we all had conversations about the job and day status.

Good work environment, decent pay, tuition perks
computing lab assistant (Former Employee), Ypsilanti, MIMarch 18, 2015
Pros: tuition discount, newer buildings, positive environment
Cons: dangerous neighborhood and intensely political
Management was positive and encouraging. Pay was reasonable. Very liberal environment. If you don't agree with the politics, just keep your head down and your mouth shut and you will be okay. Campus is very pleasant but DO NOT go off campus. Ypsilanti is very dangerous.

Fun Place for the People I worked for
Assistant Volleyball Coach (Former Employee), Ypsilanti, MIMarch 2, 2015
Pros: traveling
Cons: traveling
I had an office of my own in the athletics department. My boss and co-worker were awesome to work for. I learned that colligate athletics is a cut throat environment and no job is secure even after a winning coach on and off the court has been successful for the past 20 years.

Fun Work Place, Learned a Lot
Student Program Coordinator (Former Employee), Ypsilanti, MichiganDecember 8, 2014
Working at this job I was always learning new things. I worked in the Women's Resource Center and I always met new people and did different things as far as planning events. The staff here was wonderful and my boss was the greatest. She was really passionate about her work and you could see that in everything she did. This job also gave me plenty of opportunities to volunteer and give back and that's one of the things I liked most about this job.

Software Developer (Former Employee), ypsilanti, MIDecember 6, 2014
I always had to create work for myself. Nobody, including my manager really had any vision or direction for me or my team. There are lots of opportunities to tinker with things and learn new stuff but there is nothing to push you, no leadership, and no incentive to be good at your job.

My time at Eastern Michigan University College of Education was a great learning experience.
Lecturer (Former Employee), Ypsilanti, MIOctober 9, 2014
Pros: it was a continual learning experience.
Cons: just when students and i got comfortable with each other and the course--the semester would end!!
My time at the College of Education at Eastern Michigan University was very rewarding. I had tremendous autonomy but could also call upon others for advice or direction if needed. It was difficult work to teach 5 courses each semester, but the students are great and learned a lot, as did I.
