    I worked at University of Leicester part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    - Very friendly and supportive work environment - Well organised once shift is secured - Good pay - Great experience for future jobs - A wide range of shift types - Flexible ( 0 hours )

    Cons

    - Long winded, time consuming and outdated process to secure shifts which can take weeks for a single (potential) shift - Shifts can start very early (7am) on some shifts such as open days when there is often very little to do until visitors start to arrive at 9am.

    Advice to Management

    - Introduce a better system for shift allocation

          I worked at University of Leicester full-time

          Pros

          Location and parking are quite good if you're lucky enough to get a permit

          Cons

          Real lack of basic amenities on campus. Not very student friendly in my opinion. Very poor standard of work and real lack of ambition.
