  • I was as happy as one could be with a student office assistant position.

    Former Employee - Student Office Assistant in Pittsburgh, PA

    I worked at Carnegie Mellon University (more than a year)

    Pros

    The office staff members were amazing; they were fun, friendly, trusting, and respectful of me as a student worker. I also love getting paid to take a leisurely walk across campus to deliver papers to another department.

    Cons

    The job was very simple. I do wish that I had more responsibility in terms of database management or whatnot, but it's understandable, given my position.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Carnegie Mellon University.

    Interview

    Took 2 months for HR to even call for phone interview. Then another month to have an in person interview with hiring manager (however this is very common in academia). Very laid back, a few prepared questions but nothing awkward. HR met with me directly after to discuss benefits and salary expectations.
