Telemarketing isn't for everyone, and survey-taking, especially for state and local governments where the target population is small certainly is for fewer people. But they always treated me well and the hours and pay were managable for the job at hand.
This is an excellent school for students. The music department is small enough to provide plenty of diverse opportunities, but big enough to provide competition. The professors are wonderful, knowledgable, and down to earth.
Emphasized leadership and professional development

I appreciate my work at FHSU because of the colleagues that I have worked with and the opportunity that I have had to innovate.

University Webmaster (Current Employee), Hays, KS – May 31, 2012
Pros: good people with high work ethics
Cons: employees don't feel valued and i think that is a legitimate feeling
Fort Hays State University could be a very good place to work, but with the recent economic troubles, employees are spread way too thin and morale is at the lowest it has been since I started in 1983. Those in upper management seem to be blind to critical staffing needs and are not taking care of the university's most important asset - its employees. – more... This has taken a toll on efficiency and effectiveness. Also, many of us are place bound and they take advantage of that by paying us salaries that are much lower than industry medians. – less
