    I have been working at Loyola University

    Pros

    Mentors were open to ideas and worked around your schedule. There were many opportunities to present your project and ideas to the public. There are also many resources available for funding.

    Cons

    The staff is small and so networking is harder here than in other academic institutions. Most professors are keen on getting their project done rather than your own. You must push your project for them to care.

    Student Worker Into Full Time Position Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Loyola University.

    Interview Details

    The phone and in-person interviews seemed to go well overall. I had recently graduated from LUC but worked for the same department I was applying to in the university as a student worker for four years. My former supervisor recommended that I apply to stay on full time after graduation, and I did so. The interview seemed to go well, and I was complimented several times by various people on my previous service as a student worker. I left feeling very good about things and was told that a decision could be made by the end of the current week. Three weeks later, I still had yet to hear back despite contacting both Loyola HR and the department I had interviewed with. Finally, I got an extremely generic and brief form rejection letter by email from HR after serving as a student employee of the department for my whole undergraduate career and being recommended by my supervisors. It was disappointing that I was not offered the position, but you don't get every job you apply for. As an alum and former member of that department's team for multiple years, what upset me most was feeling as if my candidacy and relationship with the department was ended so informally. This was not the "care for the whole person" I had grown accustomed to from Loyola. Unfortunately, I now have a very bitter taste in my mouth towards my undergraduate institution due to how this process was handled overall.
