    Former Employee - University Representative Telefund Caller in Spokane, WA

    I worked at Gonzaga University part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Working part-time as a university representative was an overall excellent experience. Can be a fairly challenging job at first, but grows more manageable over time. Co-workers are all students, so you will most likely be working with familiar faces or have an opportunity to meet some new people. The higher-ups are all former students as well, and are very supportive, even after graduation.

    Cons

    Cold calling can be difficult even if everyone has *some* connection to the university. There are always those malignant folks who enjoy giving you a hard time, but for every insulting call, there are five great ones.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider increasing commission to the students who bring in the most money.

    I worked at Gonzaga University part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The office was full of friendly folks who truly wanted to help everyone who comes in. We had multiple luncheons and lots of appreciation for their employees, part time or full.

    Cons

    Despite such competence, there is a huge lack of training, luckily I didn't need it, but other employees could have definitely used it and it showed to the customers who came in. The only reason they receive a top 50 is because the staff is so friendly and work as hard as they can to solve the problem, even if they don't possess the knowledge to do so.

    Self-driven work that teaches you to adapt on your own.

    I worked at Gonzaga University

    Pros

    Working with a professor gives you a great knowledge of how scientific research is conducted
    Great experience to go along with the major you are working towards

    Cons

    Most time spent by yourself, tends to be slow tedious work without a lot of help. You don't even finish projects sometimes so it feels like your work is useless

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more than one person working on each project it gets lonely sitting by yourself all day

    Pros

    Good benefits, good compensation, cheap cost of living. Generally friendly people with a strong sense of community. Pleasant campus with nice weather.

    Hire an industrial psychologist to analyze the core issues in this account! Hire new management.
