    Work Study Jobs

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThere are plenty of jobs available on campus if you're working off of the work study fund. Make sure that you approach departments early in the year so that their quota doesn't fill up.

    ConsWork can be monotonous. Often times you'll be asked to do work that is not necessarily as challenging as you'd like.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive students projects that can showcase and challenge their abilities.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not a bad place to work

    Web Content Assistant (Current Employee)
    Claremont, CA

    ProsClaremont is a beautiful campus and a great college (situated next to the other four Claremont Colleges). The small student body size makes for a great but still well-connected community.

    ConsPeople sometimes get stuck in the "Claremont Bubble" and get a little out of touch with reality. Otherwise, the work experience is pleasant and the compensation is appropriate for student employment.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
