    Conservative and relaxed culture that you'd come to expect from rural Iowa. You won't lose your hair working here. Subordinates are typically on a first-name-basis with their supervisors. Highly recommended for student employment. My supervisor did a fantastic job tailoring my schedule to fit with my classes.


    While most of the facilities are very nice and modern, some builds and extremely outdated. The campus is in rural Iowa, which can be a con for some. The campus is also notorious for wind.

    Advice to Management

    None. My experience with management was both understanding and nurturing. I enjoyed receiving constructive criticism with the idea that "everybody can improve" rather than just getting a pat on the back.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at University of Northern Iowa.


    Great interview process, it concludes of 2 rounds, 1 behavior, 1 social. In the behavior, you got to walk around several tables for different buildings. Here you got a chance to talk to the RLC as well as answer their questions
