A great place for students to work
Librarian in Training (Former Employee) –  Wilberforce, OHJune 21, 2018
This is a great place for students to work to get job experience. However, if you are an outsider coming in it is very hard to get a job. It would be better to be a student and get job placement.
Pros
IF you are a student you can get a wonderful job
Cons
not ideal if you our non staff or students

office staff (Former Employee) –  Xenia, OHMay 14, 2018
central state gave me a chance to earn while in college. I know that college can be difficult with just studies alone, but if you add on the stress of financial responsibilities it can become a nightmare. So i thank Central State University for the opportunity.

Administrative Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Wilberforce, OHFebruary 24, 2018
This is by far one of the worst places I have ever had the misfortune of working. I do not even know where to begin to express how awful it is to work here. I dread going to work on a daily basis. First of all, their hiring practices are inconsistent and unfair. Few people are hired based on merit or actual qualification for the job; instead cronyism and nepotism abound. As a result, the burden of work falls on those who are truly competent, increasing stress levels to stroke proportions. People are routinely fired without notice or apparent cause, even those in "high" positions, and rarely is the staff notified. Secondly, CSU is so technologically behind the times, if it weren't so sad it would almost be laughable. This increases the frustration and stress of performing the job day to day. Management does not listen to suggestions for improvement, they make demands and expect miracles. "Management," by the way, consists of a bunch of people with a lot of letters behind their names who want to show one another how intelligent they are. It would appear that few people, even the faculty, truly care about the students, who are the reason for CSU's very existence. CSU has been in existence for 131 years and I honestly do not see how they are still standing. They turn a blind eye to problems, inflate their so-called successes and put on a public face that is intended to hide the true ugliness of the campus culture. This is an absolutely horrible place to work and I encourage NO ONE to apply for a job here.
Pros
I love the students.
Cons
Everything else

Residence Assistant (Current Employee) –  Wilberforce, OHJanuary 22, 2018
A typical work day at Central State University consists of running errands when needed and completing clerk related job responsibilities. The culture of Central State University is very professional, yet family oriented. Working at Central State isn't hard because everything is a learning experience. Meeting new people is the best part about this profession.

Ran great under previous management.
Painter II (Former Employee) –  Wilberforce, OHJanuary 21, 2018
CSU had a few great things about it in the beginning. When supervisors don't do their job it seeps into the fabric of the culture. The culture there was "I'm waited my turn and I'm getting mine" Very little teamwork between managers or supervisors to subordinates. Poor fiscal choices.
Zero support from the Union that we paid dues to.
Pros
Good hours
Cons
Lack of management and fiscal irresponsibility

Foreign Language Instructor (Former Employee) –  Wilberforce, OHOctober 14, 2017
The underlying feeling to anyone new to the culture was racial and unwelcoming. Ones' credentials were always in question and the university's budget was always the excuse for virtually everything. Mismanagement of finances always a threat.
Pros
Scheduling
Cons
No real diversity.
