    I have been working at George Mason University as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great schedule flexibility for student workers. Professional staff and other student staff were absolutely amazing! They all worked well with each other and I was very satisfied with the position. I wish I would have extended my contract when I got the offer.

    Cons

    Some of the downsides were that you could be called to come in and work at any time, and you lost out on at least 1 of the holiday breaks, whether it be fall, winter, or spring break. This plus the students yelling and getting in your face. Other than this, there weren't any cons!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. I worked in the Housing & Residence Life.

    I have been working at George Mason University full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Free tuition- 6 credits free for two semesters a year - earn a bachelor's, master's and/or PhD.
    Good location - Fairfax, VA
    Great place to get your foot in the door - get sent to the academy - get certifications under your belt

    Cons

    Bad pay. Paying for parking is expensive and mandatory. Rotating shifts. Management. Lack of promotions. No one on campus likes the police - faculty, staff or students.
