Incompetent Flunkie (Former Employee), Kennesaw, Georgia – March 25, 2013
Pros: liberal leave during holidays
Cons: too extensive to list
KSU has a long-standing tradition of discrimination and intimidation when it comes to its employees. Do a Google search of legal actions against them and you'll see what I mean! When I needed to actually use some of the great benefits they are quick to talk about, I was treated like a liability, and eventually wrongfully terminated. If you work in any – more... department that falls under the auspices of the Vice President for External Affairs, you will find yourself micro-managed, bellittled, disempowered, frustrated and regretting the day you ever went to work there. Again, ask around. The Emperor's New Clothes is in full effect! I know it's a lousy job market. But, if you value your career DO NOT burn it down at this place. – less
Sports Massage Therapist (Current Employee), Kennesaw, GA – February 1, 2013
Pros: meeting potential clients
Cons: i'm a subcontracter
KSU hires me for their special events that they have throughout the year. Some events are for runners where I give them pre and post sports massage. Some events are for stress relief where I give them a chair massage that targets their neck and shoulders.
KSU manages their events well by being organized and has a friendly staff that works them.
The – more... hardest part of the job is to leave. It's first come first serve at the events and massage is in such a demand that people don't want me to leave and are disappointed if they weren't able to get one.
The most enjoyable part of the job is putting smiles on people's faces and seeing how relaxed they are. – less

Administrative Asst (Former Employee), Kennesaw, GA – April 30, 2012
Pros: worked with fellow students
Cons: management never rewarded/punished
This job required heavy lifting of boxes filled with textbooks. This was the easiest part of the job. Other aspects included order processing, checking in and out of the boxes, and record keeping. Each order was counted for accuracy, updated in the computer system and then delivered over to the main bookstore for the customer to pick up. Management – more... gave us a list of items to be completed during the day and it was each individual's responsibility to get it done. This developed time management skills along with the ability to present a quality job done to management. – less
