Relaxed workplace with many educational opportunities
Language Lab attendant (Former Employee), Foreign Languages DepartmentMay 16, 2014
Pros: flexible schedule, work study compatible
Cons: part-time only
This job is work-study only, first of all, so it's only available to students with financial aid based on need. With that out of the way, the work is often relaxed, with plenty of free time to work on homework, study, or do whatever else you find appropriate for student pursuits. There are also plenty of books and videos filled with foreign languages – more... and cultures, ripe for the viewing.
The director of the Language Lab is a sweet and understanding, if sometimes highly stressed, woman who asks nothing more than doing your job based on the guidelines presented upon hiring and discussed in the semester staff meetings. Sometimes coworkers may fail to follow these guidelines, which can cause major backups in productivity, but otherwise the faculty is enjoyable to work with. – less

Extra money on the side, but not a job.
Newspaper Distributer (Former Employee), Pocatello, IDFebruary 26, 2014
Pros: easy extra money, flexible hours.
Cons: low hours, impersonal management.
Hours are incredibly low and the pay is pretty alright for the work. I never once met a single person I actually worked for which was odd. I felt like I wasn't even a part of the team and that can be hard for employees since you won't meet a single coworker.

great summer work
Painter and maintainance moving crew (Former Employee), Pocatello, IDFebruary 12, 2014
Pros: flexiable work schedule for students, no weekends
Cons: no benifits, switch in management
When I first started this job I was a student worker/single parent and I loved it. Working outdoors is wonderful. At the time the supervisor was really great easy to talk too, understanding and explained what you would be doing. Then they changed management and the quality of the workplace went down because of layoffs, workplace hostilities, and severe – more... budget cuts. – less

It was a nice place to work but a very boring job at times.
Bengal Caller (Former Employee), Pocatello, IDJuly 26, 2013
It was boring because a lot of the calls I made seemed to end up being disconnected numbers or to Alumni that were still attending school for a masters therefore they didn't have money to donate. But all in all it wasn't to bad a job just dragged on sometimes. Liked the management a lot though and loved my coworkers as well. Everyone was very professional – more... but still knew how to have some fun and help each other out. My favorite part of the job was when an older alumni would be talking to me about their experience at ISU and the things they were involved in while attending the University. It made it really enjoyable to hear what they had to say about their time here since I am currently a student. – less

I have learned an important thing of my life by studying at Idaho State University. That is if you want the best of someone, just be a very good friend of him. Most of work as a research assistant was fun. I learnt a lot, gain experience to manage myself.

Assistant Director, Outreach and Student Services (Current Employee), Twin Falls, IDJanuary 25, 2013
Pros: unique position in higher ed, local supervisor is extremely fair, flexible, supportive
Cons: little help from main campus when needed, very low salary
12 years working with all types and levels of students in an Outreach and Transfer Center located on a community college campus. We are a one-stop shop that advises traditional, non-traditional, non-degree and degree seeking, high school through doctorate, recruiting through graduation, among all other administrative duties as Assistant Director. My – more... experience has been extremely fulfilling, challenging at times, rewarding beyond measure and very educational and diverse.

Every semester for twelve years I have worked closely with faculty, registrar, students, adjuncts, other advisors and our host campus to schedule distance learning classes, classrooms, testing facilities, proctoring, and making the difficult decision of determining which classes must take priority, if required. – less
