    I worked at Chautauqua Institution part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working as a seasonal employee was great and included access to the grounds, people were generally friendly. Flexible hours, and great office environment.

    Cons

    Job placement seemed to have a lot to do with what connections you has, as did position advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Great environment, good communication, but hiring of managers was less than desirable- if you are going to bring in someone new instead of hiring from within, please have a more strict hiring process

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Chautauqua Institution.

    Interview

    Pretty straightforward application form that could be done online or in paper. "Interview" wasn't really the right word, it was more just some standard questions, like what days/hours can you work, when can you start for the summer, how long through the season can you stay, etc. The hiring manager was friendly and approachable.

    Negotiation

    There wasn't a negotiation phase, it was a minimum wage job selling tickets at the main gate and/or the parking lot. Very good summer job for college kids.
