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

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    - Long winded, time consuming and outdated process to secure shifts which can take weeks for a single (potential) shift - Shifts can start very early (7am) on some shifts such as open days when there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