The best company I have ever worked for.
Residence Hall Front Desk Worker (Former Employee) –  Tacoma, WAFebruary 13, 2013
I worked with PLU in other capacities than just this job over the course of my four years as a student, but this was the most recent one. A typical day working the front desk for the dorm involved monitoring each person coming and going from the dorm to make sure residents and their guests were safe. Handling of a "money box" and regulating the use of dorm equipment occupied a significant amount of daily time as well. Co-workers were other dorm-mates, so we were able to all become close co-workers.
Pros
study while you work (after other tasks are completed), speak to and interact with people professionally.
Cons
none.

Great place to work
Event Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Tacoma, WAOctober 26, 2017
PLU is a great place to work.
Benefit package is phenomenal, with paid time off in late December and an additional 40 hours paid time off in the summer. Medical benefits are good too.
People tend to stay at PLU for a long time, there is a different atmosphere here.
