Research Assistant (Current Employee) – East Lansing, MI – January 21, 2019
Whenever anyone asks me if I have any advice about working for Michigan State as a TA, I tell them the same thing - FIND A MENTOR. Luckily, I was paired with a great mentor and have had countless opportunities to explore my field and get some resume boosters.
Team Member (Former Employee) – East Lansing, MI – January 10, 2019
Beware of managers - some are unfair. The workers were lovely, pay was okay, but they will work you just be on time, never late. Always dress right no leggings or jeggings, have proper work shoes. Watch how long you take on your breaks.
eat free food
sometimes no breaks, no real days off, over work you, don't raise up pay for overtime.
PhD Candidate (Current Employee) – East Lansing, MI – January 9, 2019
I'm a PhD Candidate here and I enjoyed the environment in the chemistry department. I spend most of my day in the lab doing research. MSU provides a good working space. And I am a TA for some semesters. This brings me a lot of opportunities to communicate with undergraduate students.
Resident Assistant (Former Employee) – East Lansing, MI – January 4, 2019
Both positions were temperature and ended when I graduated. I helped with orientation for the summer and then I was a resident assistant for the 20215-2016 school year. It was an unpaid position that offered free room and board and a meal plan.
Resource Fair Coordinator (Former Employee) – East Lansing, MI – January 3, 2019
During the two years I worked at MSU, I would definitely say that I learned a lot about myself and my work ethic. Working for the university kept me on my toes, and I learned more than anything about how to work on a team and how to handle "customers". The management for the orientation program was great, except sometimes it was hard to talk to managers due to only about three working. The workplace culture was one of encouragement, freedom to suggest ideas, and putting your best foot forward.
Extremist Researcher (Former Employee) – East Lansing, MI – December 30, 2018

Financial Aid Phone Bank (Former Employee) – East Lansing, MI – December 9, 2018
Being a part of the financial aid phonebank was mostly fun, but at times stressful. We were expected to learn the computer system within a week and it was fairly complicated for someone who doesn't have a background in computers. The management was really nice and when the phones weren't ringing, you can do whatever you want which was nice!
Management was not very friendly and hours were terrible
Kitchen Helper (Former Employee) – East Lansing, MI – December 4, 2018
I do commend that they try to give jobs to people but the overhiring became a huge problem for me personally trying to get hours. The mangers were at often times very unfriendly and some would give very nasty looks at people. I found this very uneasy and do not like working in a negative envirement.

Nematology Research Assistant (Former Employee) – East Lansing, MI – November 13, 2018
Michigan State was a great place to go to school and work. All the professors knew you had a hectic schedule and allowed you to work around your classes and still get your job done. I definitely recommend any professor in College of Agriculture and Natural Resources.
