    I worked at UMUC part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The flexibility for time-off was the biggest reason for me to stay with UMUC Europe for almost 4.5 years. As long as the office was covered and we weren't in a registration period, I could take time off for traveling. Our office environment was great and working remotely with our headquarters was pretty easy. Most of the headquarters staff did anything they could to support the field representatives. Another bonus was being able to work on my graduate program with their tuition reimbursement benefit.

    Cons

    The pay at UMUC Europe wasn't great and sometimes it can be difficult to get things done quickly when your'e at a remote site.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think it would really benefit UMUC Europe if they could invest in a yearly or every other year conference for Field Representatives to meet and discuss ideas for improvement of the university. Field Representatives work daily with students, faculty and community leaders and might have some really great suggestions for university leaders. UMUC Europe needs more communication channels for reps.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at UMUC.

    Interview Details

    After seeing a local posting for a Field Representative position, I submitted a paper application in person and scheduled an interview with the Senior Field Representative when I dropped off the application. The interview was straightforward and fairly easy. There were basic questions about my job history. The Senior mentioned she hired me because of my history of working with adult students. Be sure to understand the dynamics of UMUC Europe before the interview (non-traditional/military students, overseas sites, etc). They definitely wanted to know if I knew how UMUC Europe was different than other universities.

    Negotiation Details
    There is no negotiating on pay for Field Representatives. Also, raises are pretty nonexistent. You might be able to negotiate your hours, depending on the office you work in.
