I worked at Daktronics part-time for more than a year

Pros

Daktronics provides local college students a chance to develop real-world experience while still in school. The people you get to work with are wonderful, friendly, helpful and smart!

Cons

The offices are generally cold, and sometimes communication leaves something to be desired. The communication problems almost always lie with certain people though, not necessarily a company problem.

    I have been working at Daktronics part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Daktronics provides a good place for students to gain experience while going to school, it is also a good resume builder.

    Cons

    the training for new jobs is pretty bad, the pay is terrible compared to other companies, and the entire company is overstaffed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    some advice i would give is to decrease the amount of staff to increase the pay, and implement a standard training program.

    I have been working at Daktronics as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    Students have an incentive to work 20 hours to earn an extra $1 an hour, and get raises twice a year, and get a $.20 raise for every class you have passed with an A or B that is on the company class list.

    Cons

    Place a lot of responsibility in their students, can be good at times and can be bad at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a better hiring process, took 2 months from application to get an interview, and another 2 weeks to hear about being accepted as a new employee. I know they lose a lot of good students because they don't have the time to wait on Personell.
