  1. ITS Student Associate

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Swarthmore College (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Opportunity to interact with staff and faculty
    -Learn about Swarthmore's IT systems
    -Extensive (paid) training, often pizza

    Cons

    -Training is often inefficient and far too time-consuming
    -Wide variation in the ability/responsibility of fellow associates
    -Management is either extremely demanding or completely hands-off
    -Too much work in Beardsley, standards too low in McCabe

    Advice to Management

    -Training should focus on hands-on training more than the handbook
    -Students should be allowed to "apprentice" with current staff to see how they solve problems; the lab manager position is where more of this happens, and that was a much more educational and meaningful job
