    Excellent place to work while a college student.

    Bookstore Sales Associate (Former Employee)
    Worcester, MA

    ProsFlexible hours, very friendly atmosphere, spent all 4 years working here and by the end felt as though we were family.

    ConsNot able to do schoolwork during downtime like you can in many other work-study positions, and the workload balance can be very uneven depending on the day.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to offer small raise to students working in the same place for more than one schoolyear, shows importance of dedication and gives us an incentive to care about our job.

    This is a great job for college students.

    Employee (Former Employee)
    Worcester, MA

    ProsIt is the most coveted job on campus available to students. The job is low stress and fun. If it's not busy and not much work for you to do, you can watch movies or do work. There is a computer with full internet access. Plus they have a tv there to let you watch a movie.

    ConsThe job can get lonely. The pay is fairly low. The timesheets are messy.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease the hourly wage.
