    I worked at Whittier College part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The best reasons to work here include the general, friendly environment and the openness of staff if you have any questions or concerns related to the position.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges of working here include the pacing, when things are slow they're very slow and when things pick up, they really pick up, you have to be flexible

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Unrelated to the job position, but a note for upper management at Whittier: Actually listen to the student body's demands and interests, it reflects poorly on the rest of the academic setting when it's so clear that there's a disconnect between higher up staff and the students they're meant to be serving.

    Pros

    You make your own hours.

    Cons

    Assignments are usually due within 5-7 days, still not much of a con.

    Pros

    Very understanding employers, gave lots of time off for student activities. Lots of employee appreciation events and perks. Community work setting.

    Cons

    Not enough oversight. Impersonal- I never dealt with upper management, only my immediate supervisor.

    Pros

    Professors all care about you and will take the time to meet with you when needed. The community in general is very supportive and helpful.

    Cons

    Scholarships do not protect students from increases in costs. The administration only cares about money and chooses policies that benefit the bottom line at the expense of the students.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not make new dorms without creating extra parking. Quit building unneeded athletic projects.

    I have been working at Whittier College

    Pros

    While working here I was able to choose my own hours and pick from a wide range of assignments to work on. My supervisor was easy to contact and was always available to provide support as I needed it.

    Cons

    Being paid minimum wage is always a drag, also no benefits. Work always picks up during the beginning of the semester and dies down at the end.
