    One of the best campus jobs for the musically-minded

    Current Employee - Sound Engineer/Stage Manager in Appleton, WI
    Current Employee - Sound Engineer/Stage Manager in Appleton, WI

    I have been working at Lawrence University part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Tech Crew allows you to set your own schedule and work the gigs that interest you. Meeting student, faculty, and visiting musicians is rarely dull, as everyone is very passionate about their art. Your coworkers are some of the coolest cats on campus.

    Cons

    Because the boss has a type-A, overly analytical personality you must be able to accept criticism readily. Also it can get really boring backstage, so bring some homework.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more relaxed and have more confidence in your employees.

    Pros

    Best job on campus
    Get to learn how to bar tend at 18 instead of 21 like in most states
    Flexible hours

    Cons

    Have to work nights, usually weekends, and definitely every party in the bar which is frustrating if you want to join in.
    You start as a barback, then become bartender

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Scheduling can be annoying.

    I have been working at Lawrence University full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Accepting community; collaborative and caring environment; its one of the nation's best liberal arts colleges; there's always something going on to attend for free or minimal costs such as concerts, guest speakers and athletic competitions.

    Cons

    We are understaffed. There is more work to be done than hands and minds to do it. That said, the work is very important and enjoyable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need to figure out what programs are essential and add value to the student experience and weed out those that are just fluff or there to look good on paper but are not that valuable to students.
