Intramurals Official (Current Employee) – Hays, KS – September 2, 2017
I ranked benefits low because its a on campus job for a college student. Working at Fort Hays University is a great place because you can learn so much from the great people that work there and teach the students
I scan a lot of documents to help come up with teaching materials for Kansas social studies and geography teachers. I have learned a lot about maps and how to use the GIS mapping system when making my own maps. The workplace is very calm and relaxed, my boss is super nice and allows me to be as creative as I want with the projects I am given. The most enjoyable part of this job is all the new information I am learning from the maps and activities I create. However, the worst aspect of my job is all the scanning I have to do. I know it is a great resource, just scanning 500 pages a day for a week is not too fun.
The job was simple. You mainly answered phones and helped visitors find where they needed to go. The most they would allow you to work was 2 hours consecutively in a row. Sometimes the desk was really slow so you would sit there with nothing to do.
FHSU is a great place to start a career, or test out a possible one.

FHSU is a great place to start a career, or test out a possible one. While attending school you can make money while investing in your craft. This is a great opportunity for anyone trying to find what they want to do with the rest of their lives.
Team Member (Former Employee) – Hays, KS – March 15, 2017
since i am going to school and working at the same place they accommodated my school schedule very well! My last year working there i was able to have a new job title that allowed me to do some supervision!
FHSU has given me the freedom to establish a basic course in American Sign Language. The secretary to the Communications and Disorders is fantastic. She has my tests and materials copied and ready each week. I love the interaction with my classes and have been able to persuade a few gifted students to switch to Interpreter Training or Deaf Education Programs.
Consistent semester work
60 miles from home, not enough 'office' time for the students to get extra help
Instructor (Current Employee) – Hays, KS – January 26, 2017
Teaching for FHSU is not bad, but the turbulence in the administration is frustrating and prevents forward progress in many areas. Salaries are probably average for higher ed and the benefits are pretty good.
Office Manager, FHSU Memorial Union (Former Employee) – Hays, KS – October 5, 2016
Enjoyed the staff and the learning experience. Business was streamlined, well thought-out in a strategic manner. Thoroughly enjoyed the staff and the knowledge base. They were very willing to share knowledge.
I truly loved working for this employer. Fort Hays State University is a great place to work and it had quite a great dynamic. As former employee i'd recommend this establishment to anyone looking for a job.
Current club swing dance instructor (Vollunteer) (Current Employee) – Hays, KS – May 31, 2016
Showing up on a timely fashion, introducing the dancers, and instructing basics in a group. Separating the experienced from the beginners to teach them all at their own level is the most difficult because many of them know different things. The co-workers and I instruct together, video the dances and correct the techniques. The most enjoyable part of the job is always learning new tricks and meeting new people. It lasts a 2 to 3 hours.
