  1.  

    Great place to spend a summer doing research!

    Former Employee - Research Assistant
    Former Employee - Research Assistant

    I worked at William & Mary as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    Exciting academic setting with interesting research. There's always more work to do, if that doesn't bother you. I worked in the physics department as a research assistant.

    Cons

    Lab meetings will take forever, and sometimes will make you want to pull out your hair. Also the bureaucracy is annoying, and if you have a $0.40 printing bill, they'll send you to collections. Everything really depends on which professor you're working for.

    I worked at William & Mary

    Pros

    Ability to make an very flexible schedule, catered to your needs and the student you are aiding first. The head of tutoring is also very understanding.

    Cons

    Sometimes are unable to help the student you are tutoring, because you were in a different class with a different professor than they are in.

    Former Employee - Assistant Director, Development in Williamsburg, VA

    I worked at William & Mary full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Work was rewarding, coworkers were enjoyable, I was relatively flexible. TONS of vacation time. Seriously tons. Working with undergrads is great - they're smart and self-reliant, so they make excellent employees. Life is more laid-back in a small town like Williamsburg.

    Cons

    Pay wasn't that high in Williamsburg. The state controls everything, so raises are hard to come by. In terms of hours, unless you have a special case there's generally the expectation that you work 8 to 5.

    Very minimum amount of work like answering phone calls and answering questions for visitors. If you are a student at the College of William and Mary, this is the best campus job you will find there.
