Great place to start, and a fun place to work

The job was a great experience to get my foot back in the door for the workplace. It is a bunch of work to begin with, but the managers are friendly, and it is very respectful for work-personal life balance. Supervisors always have your back (aka backing you up against argumentative customers)I started out being a dishwasher, and management began testing out what I could also do. I became a server, bartender, host, and Supervisor of Security, which definitely helped my resume looked great.You meet amazing people as you work and you learned a skill or two, personally and professionally.All I can say is...Thank you for taking a chance on me.

Pros

Amazing Co-Workers, Friendly Management, Flexible schedule, Experience amazing events.

Cons

Other than a long drive, nothing much

Awesome to work for

I was a photographer covering Concerts and Events, The Student union was amazing to work for. They let you pick the events you cover and allow time for editing.

Great Place To Work

As a full-time student, the FSU is highly flexible in terms of accommodating my schedule and are very supportive of my academic goals. The work culture is casual yet supportive and full of great people.

Pros

Great work environment

Good for entry level

Lots of freedom but truly never enough hours along with very strict times as to when things can be done thus limiting the functionality of students and workers, you will be asked to go outside of your comfort and knowledge zone to achieve student union goals even if its say a weakness or lack of interest even if advised your held responsible for lack of marketing events on your end Management isn't completely honest and i think they give butchered employee reviews as i had a nearly perfect review but nothing but negative feedback and comments about work ethic great position if you have no work experience or trying to build confidence but not a position or employer you could rely on, keep in mind there are many people that manage FSU and each one is different mine was just extremely lacking. if your looking for a fulfilling lasting job that provides hours then this is not the job for you, you'd be better off doing custodial work instead.

Pros

15% off Student union eateries ( oasis, outback shack, booster juice) getting to know students, enhancing self portrayal

Cons

next to no hours, limited times as to when you can work (Mondays 11am-1pm, and throughout the week 4pm-6pm and only possibly 3 times a week if that, lacking management, lack of direction sometimes, high unfair expectations

Oh goodness you are going to force me for each one of this.

Please stop doing this. I just want a part time. Why are you making me do this. Its not a company, its my college. I studied there. I worked as a volunteer.

Fun and laid back

Sold tickets to on campus events, bus tickets, pop and monitored the pool hall next door. Laid back environment where you could spend free time on homework or assignments or chatting with friends.

Relaxing Work Environment

A typical day at work would be going to the security office before 9AM and grabbing the keys for the games room, then I would open up the games room followed by the biz booth side of things. Then, I would wait until students or faculty wanted to by tickets or play in the games room.

Pros

Can do college assignments while working

Cons

Not Much to do

High reward, technical job that focused around I.T.

Working for the Fanshawe Student Union was one of the best places I had the privilege to work at. Both my co-workers and my management were wonderful to work with. I learned to put what I learned into action. All around if the opportunity arrives to work for them again, I would.
