I have been working at Rhode Island School of Design part-time (Less than a year)
I'm a student at RISD but I've also done some work study programs. They treat us well, paying like $12.30 an hour to give tours of the school. RISD is very generous with what they pay us and many of their other employees.
There are some minor feuds between major departments and it somehow makes some of the other part time and some full time workers in unions believe that they are underpaid when they are really making much more than anyone else would pay them for the same work.
Advice to Management
It would be great if we could stop having strikes at school because it's getting in the way of my education and I'm not paying tuition so I can have my classes cancelled.

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Rhode Island School of Design.
HR representative called me for the initial phone interview. After the morning phone interview, I was contacted in the afternoon to make arrangements to come to campus the next week. I rearranged my schedule to be available for three days to fly out there, interview for a full day, and fly home. I had eight short sessions during my interviews. That was fine. They filled up any downtime by showing me around campus, which usually would be fine but it was a very hot and humid day and of course I was in full suit, so I was very uncomfortable. They told me their timeline was two - three weeks to make a decision. I didn't receive a response to my follow-ups and haven't heard from them since. Maybe they decided I was a bad fit, but I do expect to be communicated with even if I'm being turned down for a position.
- An interviewer asked how I would take over projects from someone who was unwilling to hand them over, and was pretty obvious she was talking about someone I had interviewed with earlier. It was a very odd moment. Answer Question
