Being a full time student and balancing work is next to impossible. However, working with the U of S and for Huskie Athletics, they are very understanding and make it possible for you to earn some work experience and pay to help sustain your daily student life.

Management has no clue what they are doing there. They will change your shift with no questions asked to save a penny of overtime. They will not take your suggestions into consideration. You never feel job security there, you could be laid off any day of the week. Terrible work environment with very low morale.
My role was managing staff and that was important to me. It made me feel good everyday that I was helping my staff. I'm glad the University saw that it was necessary to have someone in place to help staff in their roles, to help them problem solve.
The university has a very outdated employment model that doesn't support growth or development. Working in a non-academic professional career is difficult because there are very few opportunities for advancement.
The UofS is struggling with financial issues and management leadership that has decreased the ability of employees to remain effective. There is no longer a clear culture of understanding roles. It's still a beautiful campus with good benefits.
Has the potential to be good, but it's located in Saskatchewan. A lot of money spent unnecessarily, with no real results given. Old fossils running programs that don't contribute, but hang on because of tenure.
The Office of University Relations is an amazing place to work for students, with fantastic team leadership. Students build relationships between the university and its Alumni while gathering demographic information and raising funds for current students.
Above minimum wage
Occasional disrespect from Alumni, and periods of inactivity during shifts
There are good opportunities for current students to gain research experience working with their professors and the pay is pretty good, too. The work can be physically demanding at times, but it depends on the area of research you work in.
