Stagnant jobs, low support, bad management
Administrator (Current Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNMay 11, 2017
All departments lack proper support and man-power to carry out all they are asked to do. Highly intelligent work force - promotion in departments is hindered by HR's inability to understand the work that is done. Highly rigid policies for some workers when others are able to do whatever they want - complete inconsistency and lack of policies allows rampant favoritism and inequality across the board. Most of the upper management and the board disconnected with the people who are dedicated to making this a great place to work. Wonderful faculty and students - surrounded by creative thinkers and art all day.
Pros
Lots of time off - good benefits
Cons
Restrictive work policies, no course of promotion

Chill Vibe, but busy work
Windows Systems Administrator (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNMarch 22, 2017
Everyone seems to be quite busy at MCAD. You will most likely have a lot of responsibility. Luckily, management is very chill, and you will most likely have a clear sense of prioritization due to the weekly meetings.

good work study position for the hard working student
Work Study Receptionist (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNNovember 17, 2016
Came into this position as a work study student in my sophomore year at MCAD. The position is in the admissions office. Laid back with flexible hours to work around school and homework load. Position consisted of entering and filing student data, completing miscellaneous tasks, leading tours for potential students/families, and giving presentations and working information tables at admissions events. The staff and the other work study "student ambassadors" were fun and focused. Very positive and supportive management. Compensation was alright. It was good for a full time student looking for money.
Pros
on campus of school, good management, calm environment
Cons
decent compensation

productive and fun work place with ping pong table
Van Driver (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNJuly 8, 2013
Since it was a work study job I was mostly doing school work. They didn't give me many hours because they were paying me 14 per hour. I was mainly working this job so I could focus on my senior project.

As for the school experience:
They give you a lot to work on. So if you have a lot of free time your not doing your job. I enjoyed all the projects I was given and ended up collaborating with a lot of other students that shared similar ideas to my own. As hard as they made us work they kept a very fun and creative environment which i feel is very important to any work place.
