    I have been working at Tulane University part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most people you work with are really friendly and helpful save for a few bad student workers who generally don't hold jobs for long.

    Cons

    The time-clock system is a nightmare and I go in for weekly corrections, less than half of which are my fault. Fortunately the lady who fixes them for me is an angel on Earth.

    Pros

    Very flexible work tailored to meet needs of graduate student employees. Very open to work from home options and HR was very helpful. Excellent part time work

    Cons

    Work was sporadic and I would have liked to do more but only so much help was needed. Salary was low but worth it for the flexibility the position offered.

    RA Job is good

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Tulane University

    Pros

    the compensation Is good and the people you work with are usually good too. You get to know a lot about Tulane as well.

    Cons

    A lot of the job is communicated last second and is unclear. Hours are not always the best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more clear and direct in correspondence with RAs. HRL is not very organized and it shows when we're getting pieces of information from various superiors and we have to put it all together to figure out what we need to do.
