I have been working at Pomona College

Pros

the environment is supportive and collaborative -- any particular job on campus is valuable. some require minimal to no work, but others are more satisfying, like lab TAing.

Cons

it is a small community, which i would say is a pro, actually, but for some people they find it stifling. there is a limit to the amount of money one can earn per semester.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

i think the leadership at Pomona College is excellent and even in the current economic environment jobs are available to the students.

    I have been working at Pomona College full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Positive work environment (people tend to be happy); great benefits; good work-life balance; supportive colleagues; with lectures, concerts and performances, a lot of cultural and intellectual opportunities. A lot of free food at talks and after meetings that other employees can scavenge! Claremont is a quaint, beautiful town to work in.

    Cons

    Very little to no opportunity for advancement or skills-building; lack of salary growth. Stress has increased.

    Current Employee - Tour Guide in Claremont, CA

    I have been working at Pomona College part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Meet new and interesting students; talking about yourself for an hour; exercise (one tour guide counted their steps on an hour long tour--10,000 in total); opportunity to practice public speaking and interpersonal skills; free t-shirt/in n out

    Cons

    Tours are occasionally inconvenient timed (ie could have midterm right after); tours can be awkward

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps it would be better if tour guides were more selectively screened (occasionally partner tour guides are awkward/forceful and difficult to collaborate on tours with)
