Good School, Mediocre Workplace
Student Worker (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – September 7, 2015
As a student worker for IIT, everything was limited.
Pay remained the same with no means for raises, employment ends with student status (no continuing employment / advancement), responsibilities were few with no room for additional duties, staff treats you like an invisible person, and overall I didn't feel welcome when I went to work.
Everything I learned, aside from professional email conduct (yes everybody emails), was learned of my own accord. New ideas were often not listened to, or shot down without logical reasoning / discussion.
Hardest part of the job was getting respect from full-time coworkers. Easiest part of the job was completing my limited duties.
