Circulation Desk Assistant (Current Employee)
Charlottesville, VA

ProsYou got to do all the homework here and still got paid by hours. It is a pretty flexible and easy job for students here.

ConsCharlottesville is not interesting at all if you come from a huge city like. Life is kinda boring and after one year you just can't wait to leave.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere aren't many jobs available for students here so if you don't have a scholarship or a job, life sucks for you.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
