Lots of work study opportunities

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Allegheny College

ProsIt's very easy to get a work study position and you will make good connections if you can get a position within your department.

ConsThe pay is not much more than minimum wage and you don't get many hours unless you work several different jobs.

Fast-paced but comfortable work environment

Office Assistant (Current Employee)
Meadville, PA

I have been working at Allegheny College part-time for more than a year

ProsSupervisors were flexible with hours and duties, office environmental was fast-paced yet very comfortable. Part-time employment increased my data entry skills as well as my customer service skills. I am confident that full-time employees have great opportunities to move up in the company. Also, benefits and salary are competitive for full-time employees.

ConsAs a student employee, wages were just above minimum. Work load varied based on time of year.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

It's a great place to work and work you will

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Meadville, PA

I have been working at Allegheny College full-time for more than 10 years

ProsQuality of life. If you enjoy small town life and the great outdoors then Meadville is a great community. I can get to work in a matter of minutes and be home equally quickly. Working with dynamic, idealistic students keeps one young and in touch with what's current.

The college has been around for 200 years and won't be outsourced. It's adapting to change and planning to weather another 200 years.

There are wonderful opportunities to attend gallery opennings, performances, lectures and sporting events at little or no cost.

My colleagues are some of the best people in the world!

ConsAs a member of the staff the hours and demands are often endless.

There is great financial support for faculty but not for staff and administration.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake care of the staff who care for the students! We stress self-care, wellness and balanced lives to our students but do very little to ensure the same for ourselves.

A hallmark of my college working life.

Research Assistant (Current Employee)
Meadville, PA

I have been working at Allegheny College

ProsIf you are looking for a chance to learn more about politics, be engaged, and feel like you've made a difference on Allegheny College's campus, this is the place for you!

ConsIt can be difficult to get in, especially as a fellow. But the center is currently in transition towards a new director. There are also times when the work can be a bit slow, or projects do not come in at a timely manner.

Advice to Senior Management1. The Center should be more inclusive for work opportunities and for the position of Fellow. 2. The current program coordinator either needs a direct, non-student assistant, or to be made a full time worker. 3. I hope the Center expands its opportunities for students to work there and make a greater impact in the coming years on the big issues that face the campus and politics today.
