    Current Contractor - Desk Assistant in Fairfax, VA

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

    Pros

    some terrific colleagues and excellent facilities

    Cons

    management/administrators are out of touch - not supportive - seem to care more about their salaries as opposed to ensuring quality education for students

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most of your faculty are part-time; invest more in them and you will get more from them and the students they teach

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
