    Thriving, unique and welcoming community, both students and professors alike

    University Representative Telefund Caller (Former Employee)
    Spokane, WA

    ProsWorking 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.

    ConsCold 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 Senior ManagementConsider increasing commission to the students who bring in the most money.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Part-Time Student, part-time employee

    IT Service Technician (Former Employee)
    Spokane, WA

    ProsThe 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.

    ConsDespite 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.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsWorking 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

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

    Good benefits, boring place to live

    Lecturer (Former Employee)

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

    ConsLots of opinionated people, slow-moving administration, boring town to live in. Everybody has an opinion they want to share. Dramatic overuse of university-wide e-mail.
