    I have been working at Berry College

    Pros

    Great experience, potential to learn skills that will help you at your next job, typically low stress, and most people I worked always treated you fairly

    Cons

    You will only get paid at minimum wage or very slightly above, there are no "benefits" as the job as a student is only part-time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on expanding the "real" work that students do and increase pay to help offset ever-increasing tuition costs

    Working at Berry was an amazing experience that prepared me to get a job after I graduated from college.

    I worked at Berry College part-time

    Pros

    Great beginner work experience. The positions are all flexible with student schedules and there are positions in a wide variety of areas. Also, all students are permitted to work, regardless of whether they qualify for federal work study, which is often not the case at most colleges.

    Cons

    The student work program has limited hours and wages, though this issue is outweighed by the positives of a flexible schedule that doesn't require you to leave campus.

    I worked at Berry College

    Pros

    The student work program gives great opportunities to apply what is learned in the classroom to real world settings. The experience I gained at Berry College was extremely valuable.

    Cons

    It can be challenging to balance work with other activities and class and homework, but it is worthwhile as it teaches good time management skills

    Pay is not very good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Challenge students more.

    Pros

    Good work environments. You literally cannot get fired.

    Cons

    The pay is utterly terrible. Should be above minimum wage. No one can survive minimum wage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold people accountable.

    Pros

    Experience is the primary benefit to working at Berry college as a student. If you are looking for work experience in college and are unsure about applying to a real employer because of credentials, consider going here.

    Cons

    Compensation, work life balance, and job training definitely need some work. Sometimes the impact of your work and efforts are not seen till years down the line. An individual needs a high level of self-motivation, especially in more intensive jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give students more extrinsic motivation in the future to grow the program.

    Pros

    Working at Berry was amazing - friendly work culture, supervisors were invested in helping student workers, there was a lot of schedule flexibility, and a wide variety of jobs available to students.

    Cons

    Limitations to the student work program include that hours/wages have strict limits, it may take a while to find a job that's a best fit for a student depending on their career path, and not all departments have the option of a student taking a higher level position as they gain more experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to grow and improve the student work program - it's a standout program
