Good Benefits. Flexibility. Fast paced. I would work there again, only left because my family relocated out of state. My manager was easy to work with. Mind your business, don't get caught up with the gossiping and you will succeed there.

Most positions within the university are clerical by nature, but there are a few customer service jobs and food service jobs. The amount of stress varies greatly but with the multiple departments there is usually a position that would fit both your tastes and schedule.

I wish I would have stayed with my old employer. There is no work-life balance or flexibility. In todays society, people work from home on a regular basis and it is forbidden here!

Working for any university is usually easy if you're at the entry-level of employment. They work well with your schedule and hold little to no expectations when it comes to your availability. If you want a lot of hours, I wouldn't look here unless you're in custodial. Also, the pay isn't the best unless you're doing a physical or a generally not coveted job.

Being a tutor is very flexible as you are a student yourself so you can schedule your availability around your schedule. Tutoring is rewarding however its a very limited amount of time to work so the pay is not the reason you do it. You do the job because you enjoy the subject, enjoy helping others succeed, maybe teaching is what you want to do. Its more of a moral thing as its good to help others. you don't tutor to make money that is for sure. Your clients appreciate you (if you're good) and that adds value to the monetary payment. It also can help add substance and character to your resume. Your are happy to help people, some jobs are worth it because of the moral sense of accomplishment compared to the monetary earning.

As a chemistry graduate student you have a myraid of different responsibilities including teaching, classes, research, mentoring, and other optional ones such as volunteering or departmental work. The overall workload tends to vary based upon your research advisor and their own expectations but generally it will be challenging. However, graduate school is one of the best opportunities to learn and fine tune one's life skills in an engaging and thought provoking environment.
Pros
Flexible work schedule, progressive department policies, welcoming community
Cons
Long hours (usually), periods of intense stress, requires extensive time managment

This university has undergone a lot of changes since I worked in its library, so I am unsure at this point how the system, staff, and dynamics are. It was a great place to work when I did.

Working as a VA work/study program employee was a great time. My time spent at the MAVRC has given me great opportunities after graduation! I still have many contacts that I can use to further my career there at UWM.

This was a good place to work at. The reason why I am looking for a new job is because I am a biochemistry major. Thd work life balance is great and it provides a good growth opportunity.

Great place for a student to gain management and work experience. Work as a student worker for a semester or two, then apply to a leadership position to develop management skills and practice.
