    I have been working at Iowa State University part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Casual and relaxed atmosphere, great working conditions, many different areas for opportunity around the university.

    Cons

    The parking system is an absolute nightmare and extremely expensive in my opinion and purchasing food on campus is expensive and is often very similar on a daily basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just appreciate your staff for what they do on a daily basis.

    Interview Details

    Communicated through email. Interviewed for summer position on PHP, Java and SQL. It also involved questions on my previous experience and interest to learn new technologies.

Now, I am building tools useful for my thesis as well as my job.
