    I worked at Ruffalocody, Llc part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    This was the highest paying job on campus. Great office culture and shifts were normally pretty fun because I was able to work with my best friends. Gained valuable cold calling skills that you can easily transfer to a sales position. Great talking point in future interviews.

    Cons

    Using the same script could get monotonous sometimes so it does help to change it up every now and then. Some shifts became very aggravating when after three hours, no one answers your phone calls.

    Student Fundraiser

    I worked at Ruffalocody, Llc part-time

    Pros

    Working as a student fundraiser was a good experience. I did not work for Ruffalocody in Cedar Rapids, but I did work for one of their call centers in NY. It is warm calling, you get to speak to alumni and ask for donations. It's a good way to develop phone/sales skills. I came across a few mad alumni and parents, but for the most part it was enjoyable. Many conversations with older alumni were great and the younger ones were happy to re-connect with current students.

    Cons

    The compensation isn't high, since you are collecting donations. Even if this is a sales role, they couldn't pay out a commission. My campus location did offer a small bonus for making the majority of your shifts each month.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. To me this was a fun job while attending college.

    Pros

    steady salary, and not bad at $10/hr. Friendly supervisors and a lot of room for leadership/perks. My boss was such a nice guy, and always tried to help motivate everyone. You pick the days you work which is nice.

    Cons

    Such a boring job, gets to be very tedious. Sometimes people will hang up on you, or be flat-out rude. Sometimes the hours are not awesome, as it's usually only 6-9pm at my location, but not sure how other places compare.

    Pros

    The management was really relaxed. Pay was decent, and the hours were good considering they allowed you to work around your class schedule.

    Cons

    Talking to alumni who hate you over the phone and trying to convince them that they should take your money blows. Student supes try to be your friend but they want you to get credit cards so its a crapshoot.
