    I worked at College of the Holy Cross

    Pros

    Good work study opportunities. Worked in several parts of the college. The best was as a caller for Phonathon. Flexible hours and bonuses. Provided meals

    Cons

    There were not many cons. Ig you dislike cold calling it is not for you. One night they had breakfast for dinner. It was not that enjoyable. Overall there are not a lot of cons.
