    I have been working at Simpson College

    Pros

    Working with seasoned and knowledgeable maintenance, custodial, and grounds crews. Fun atmosphere with plenty of help and encouragement. As long as you're trying your best, it's hard to do anything wrong. It's not hard to gain trust from your supervisors and with this they will allow you to work more independently.

    Cons

    The pay is low, as expected. Kind of hoped for a raise my second summer working there since I was bringing back invaluable painting experience, but that didn't happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked hard during my time there and gained skills with it. However, beware some students who are not willing to put any effort into the job. Don't keep students employed just because their coach suggests they need a summer job. How can you allow them to sleep and sit around and text all day?
