    I have been working at Union College (New York) part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Accommodating, fair pay, flexible hours, countless jobs for any number of skills or departments specific to the potential employee. Great bosses, very mindful of the difficulties and challenges presented to students. Generally minimum wage or above, bi-weekly pay.

    Cons

    Few jobs for students without "work study" accommodations. To be expected, the most jobs are given to those who are most financially in need.

    Great College, Trimester System Can Be Tough, but can adapt!

    I worked at Union College (New York)

    Pros

    Union College is a great private college in New York and boasts Professors that all have their PhD. For the most part the professors are all willing to help and are sympathetic. The trimester system can be adapted to quickly and gives you the ability to meet and interact with many new professors in just one academic year. Beautiful campus.

    Cons

    Extremely expensive, for what you pay you should get a lot more. The food is pretty bad. Older professors can be extremely difficult and uncaring, especially if you play sports. 10 weeks to take a final can be tough especially in Science Courses, midterms usually happen by week 3 or 4.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get better food and offer students more since you charge them $60,000 per year.

    Pros

    The perks of working on a small college campus include access to great events, amenities, and the feel of a close-knit community.

    Cons

    Because of the small size of the school it may be hard advance as I have seen first hand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management could provide better training or educational/career advancement for departmental employees.
