    Pros

    Some of the positive aspects of working at Western Washington University was the work hours, employees, and work environment. The shift was only three hours long, which was perfect for a part time job. My fellow employees and supervisor were mostly friendly and encouraging. The work expected of me was easily explained and easy to handle.

    Cons

    The few downsides to working as an employee for WWU was the shifting positions and supervisors. The first quarter I worked as a student janitor, I was assigned to a supervisor who spoke little English and was hard to understand, as well as impatient and easily annoyed. Thankfully, I was reassigned to a second supervisor who was much clearer and understanding. However, it was located much farther away and was hard for me to reach in time for my shift compared to the closer location of my previous position.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise management to work on communication between student employees and their supervisors. Instead of merely, relocating the employees, find a compromise between them and their current supervisor. That way, everyone gains some understanding of what they are doing wrong and how they can improve.

    Interview

    Small panel interview. If you have every interviewed with another company for a technical position you probably had a more difficult interview than this one. Just be prepared for some behavioral and technical questions.
