    Pros

    Stable employment as long as you make your quota.
    co-workers are nice.
    Working with americas history.

    Cons

    very low pay
    required to complete 20 - 21 casses a day, no matter the complexity.
    seems like long term older employees are not encouraged to apply for new opportunities - only young students will get any of the developmental positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    treat all people fairly. Provide opportunity to all employees.

    Former Employee - Student Worker in New York, NY

    Pros

    Flexible work schedules, small staff that makes it easy to get to know co-workers, occasionally food and drink are provided, there are opportunities to learn more about the logistics of Archives Management, the work is not too difficult

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement without a degree in the field, work becomes tedious and mundane when no new responsibilities are introduced, sometimes find yourself looking for work to do

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Student workers should have additional responsibilities other than processing and data entry.
