A great place to work

Student Researcher (Former Employee)
Wooster, OH

I worked at College of Wooster full-time for less than a year

ProsI worked here as a student researcher with the Math department during the summer and the supervisor as well as the advising professors were great. They provided the students with enough guidance so that we didn't have to stumble through everything on our own, while making sure that we got to develop the project autonomously. They were also concerned with building a friendly and comfortable working environment by hosting picnics/gatherings at their houses and organizing group lunch every Thursday. Most importantly, they care about their student employees' experience, making sure that everybody is growing academically, professionally and personally, rather than paying attention only to the work result.

ConsI wish there were more training at the beginning about the type of work we had to do.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe supervisor and professors did a great job. I hope they keep up the good work and provide more training to students.

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

I worked at College of Wooster part-time for more than 3 years

ProsGood work/life balance. Great sub-urban environment for an expanding family, cheap cost of living. Relative proximity to urban environment when desired (1 hr to Cleveland, 50 min to Akron, 1.5 hr to Columbus, 3 hrs to Cincinnati)

ConsNo nightlife. Small-minded, small-town people. Disconnect and tension between college community and rest of town. High concentration of sexual offenders surrounding the college campus. Limited financial compensation.

Good for Students

Digital Imaging Technician (Former Employee)
Wooster, OH

I worked at College of Wooster

ProsMy boss was always very willing to allow time off for college related activities, such as homework, class meetings, and sorority needs.

ConsOne of the downsides was that due to the lenient nature of the job and the trusting attitude of my boss, other students were not as motivated to work.

Advice to Senior ManagementMotivate students to work harder. When other students slack, the ones that would generally work harder may see it as an opportunity to slack, or alternately, be discouraged by being treated similarly, even if others are not working as hard.

Interesting Place To Work, Has Its Ups and Downs

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at College of Wooster part-time

ProsWhen you know who you're supposed to talk to about a problem, it's usually very easy to get the problem solved.
Some of the students are very sweet, and will take their time to get to know you. They make the job worth it most of the time.

ConsThe chain of command isn't always the most cohesive or understandable. Finding out who you need to talk to about what can be a bit annoying.
The lower down the totem pole you are, the less likely you are to be treated or paid well. This includes (some) students as well as other staff.
