    I have been working at Rescomp

    Pros

    Great entry-level position with numerous opportunities to advance. The work scheduling is great, and there are different things to get involved with. Although most positions are technical, they train you and you can get relevant skills from working here. I'd suggest staying with the company and advancing with them.

    Cons

    Student job, customers/residents difficult to deal with at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More workshops and opportunities for non-CS majors.

    I have been working at Rescomp part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The biggest advantage for a busy college student like me is having a lot of flexibility in choosing when to work. Also everyone who works here is trained in having good customer service which means lots of friendliness and good conversation when I'm in the office. Most of the time, sitting in at ASC office hours and manning Helpdesk shifts are not very busy so I can be productive doing other things while waiting around.

    Cons

    Sometimes the appointments that people ask to make with you can be spaced apart at awkward intervals, which isn't necessarily bad, just annoying. Also sometimes clients will have issues that are really specific to his/her situation or computer set-up, which means the hours I put into training at the beginning of the year gives way to Googling for solutions until I can help solve the issue.

    Pros

    Amazing real-world, impactful work experience. Ability to learn new skills and friendly environment. Recruit excellent student talent to work on large-scale issues.

    Cons

    Male dominated, though less so now. Hard to manage student schedules. The work feedback cycle is few and far between sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take student involvement and ideas to heart, but also provide guidance and leadership when necessary. Involve only key players in decisions to avoid stagnation.

    I worked at Rescomp

    Pros

    Very Flexible, lots of opportunities to get hours, looks good on resume, great pay for a college job (14.25 at time of writing), you can work during summer

    Cons

    Pay is good for college, but bad compared to other similar jobs on campus, sometimes unit supervisors (other students) are mediocre

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rescomp is what you make of it; if you want to be very involved, you can, and if you just want to work, you can do that too -- I like that! Keep it that way. Fight the RIAA!
