I worked at George Mason University full-time

Pros

GMU is a great school situated in a really nice location. The campus is expanding and adding new services that will ultimately benefit students.

Cons

The department and division honors ineptness if you are in the inner circle. If you are in the inner circle and fail at your job, the division will just find another position for you to take. Anyone else would be out on the street.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be honest. You have people who care a lot about what they are doing. Feeding them lies to cover your backsides is not necessary. People will respect you for speaking your truth.

    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.
