Pub Safety is NOT all that...
PSO (Current Employee) – St. Paul – August 27, 2013
I have no doubt the other departments within UST are fun places to work. Public Safety is the exception.
You are considered a temporary employee - and that is the culture, we are there until something better comes along. There is no attempt to create a supportive work environment to keep employees. Even management emails outside job opportunities to staff!
Parking is not free. You can attend class tuition free (good deal!) after a year employed but books are on you. Pay is not good - and raises are a joke.
The best part of the job is the fun and supportive coworkers, as we are all in it together. Shared misery.
The worst part is dealing with students who aren't willing to be responsible for their actions and use the fact they pay (or their parents pay) a ton of money to justify their needs/wants.
If you need security experience with all the glam that comes with having UST on your resume, knock yourself out. But for real world experience or career possibilities, it won't be found here.
It's not a hard job, students on campus six months out of the year
No opportunities, politics, change is an evil word
