MSSU provides a good steady job, the management is accomadating and nice. The wages are not the best.
Ground Crew (Former Employee) – Joplin, MO – November 1, 2014
We are given assignments to do a certain type of grounds work for the day or specific work orders to accomplish. The summer ground crew usually does most of the edging while the full timers mow. We also clipped hedges, trimmed trees, shoveled out gutters and ditches, picked up trash and am currently vacuuming up fall leaves. A summer employee can get on full time if there is a vacancy in the full time positions. The managers are great people, easy to work with. I would love to work for the University if the wages were better, the beginning wages are $9.74 hr. which comes to $1280 a month. Unfortunately that is not enough to live on and pay bills and pay a student loan.
I loved working out side all summer and the rest of the MSSU staff are wonderful people, I will very much miss my summer crew!
Meet fantasic people, enjoyed a wonderful summer.
Low wages, no benefits.
