Pros

Employees (and students!) are quite willing to help and collaborate when needed. I actually never encountered a staff member or faculty member that I didn't enjoy speaking with and/or working with.

The campus is gorgeous and fun to traverse (despite being so large). Raleigh is also a great tight-knit city.

Cons

It was only a part-time job and there was no real option to move into a full-time position (not that I expected there to be).

    Convenient on-campus location (across the street from my dorm)
    Very flexible hours

    Great staff and great colleagues
    Good working environment
    Automatic pay increase after two consecutive semesters of work

    Cons

    Annoying to deal with the players sometimes, but the intramural supervisors always have our backs.

  2. Worth it in the end, but leaves a bad after-taste.
