I worked at Salisbury University part-time (more than 3 years)Pros

-They understand you're a student first. No pressure to come in if you have a test you need to study for or anything else academic related.
-Most of the supervisors are sociable and allow you to get to know them on a personal level.
-Lots of opportunities to work more hours.
-Laid back environment.Cons
-Occasionally there is drama and when it happens every knows about it (office gossip).
-When a supervisor comes in with a funky attitude, it makes for an uncomfortable environment for the student technicians.
-$10 an hour pay cap for student technicians.Advice to ManagementAdvice
If I were the CTS boss I'd get rid of the $10 an hour pay cap for student technicians so that veteran student techs can be paid equivalent to their experience and time with the department. Also some of the supervisors are able to get away with slacking off or causing friction with no consequences. Thats got to stop. It diminishes professionalism. I'd also hire less student techs. At times there were too many students on the payroll and not enough hours to go around.RecommendsNeutral Outlook

- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 3+ months – interviewed at Salisbury University.Interview Details
The business school hiring process was pretty typical of other universities. A 30 - 45 minute interview at the conference hotel focused more on teaching than research. A lot of time was spent trying to sell the university. After being invited on campus, there is a full day of interviews with department faculty and a 1 hour research seminar. Mine was sparsely attended and there were not a lot of questions asked. The seminar evaluation seems to be as much about your ability to talk in front of a room (evaluating teaching potential) as your research.Interview Questions
Negotiation DetailsI was able to negotiate for moving expenses. There was a little upward movement on salary, but not much. There was no receptiveness to the idea of a course load reduction or movement on summer support, which is not competitive with other universities.Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
