It would be very nice if the university employs more modern or widely used technologies so that the employee has a chance to grow and learn something that will benefit them later in life.

    I have been working at University of Houston part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The University of Houston campus Recreation center is a flexible fun environment for active students to work.

    Cons

    Due to the low level of skill involved in the nature of the job, the Campus Recreation Center's management largely treats student employees as replaceable and disposable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treating student workers with genuine respect and appreciation while motivating their productivity is the key to both staff morale and customer satisfaction. A warm, but firm hand is needed to manage these student employees.

    I worked at University of Houston part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Working at the Rec Center on campus puts you close to the gym and gives you a chance to work out right before or after work. Hours are extremely flexible and pay is decent for how easy the work is.

    Cons

    Often times there would be a lack of hours due to how many people they had hired. I eventually left because I was only getting 6 hours a week.
