Compensation is poor. The assistant director makes the position difficult keeping things from the Director. Not enough hours.

i would not work for this university again
House keeping/general maintenance (Former Employee) –  St. Bonaventure, NYJune 9, 2013
the staff and management who were in charge of housekeeping were always wonderful to work with and i even miss them as many became good friends. hours/work was steady and my job was secure. housekeeping was managed by a 3rd party company Aramark who did their best to make us feel our work was appreciated. i left due to the the way the university treated its hourly workers and the promise to increase wages substantially at the beginning of the next school year to put a stop to a strike and then failing to follow through with those promises.
Pros
workers/management staff were fun and wonderful people to work with.
Cons
university management left much to be desired.

Olean is a small town, but it's in NY state. SBU is a very welcoming/embracing community. Career advancement is limited, however.

St. Bonaventure University
Carpenter's Assistant (Former Employee) –  Allegany, NYMarch 24, 2014
St. Bonaventure University is an excellent place to pursue a college education. It is a small university where students are able to have face to face relationships with their professors. Furthermore, the fairly low number of students allows for a more personal experience in the classroom and around campus.
