    Pros

    Legitimate job experience that has impressed future employers. As a development associate, students learn real skills that are useful in future jobs.

    Cons

    Very boring, and the people can occasionally be rude. inconvenient times that conflict with lots of campus events. You actually have to work as opposed to other campus jobs where you mostly do homework with an occasional task.

    Pros

    Good environment, nice staff. The work load is not much and the payment is reasonable.

    Cons

    You cannot service without a car. I am from a big city, and I am so not used to living in Spartanburg.

    Pros

    As a student employee in the Wofford College library, I was very happy. The job allowed for flexible hours and enabled me to complete school work during my working hours when there was down time.

    Cons

    Since Wofford is an academically challenging liberal arts college, having a job can be annoying since you want to dedicate a large portion of your time to studying.

    Former Employee - Resident Director  in  Spartanburg, SC

    Pros

    Wofford is a fun environment in which the staff interacts well with the students and, since it's a small school, there is a good community sense of community. As a staff member the administration encourages you in your professional goals by providing flexibility in the work schedule for taking additional classes (1 is paid for by the college per semester). The academic environment at Wofford provides for stimulating conversations, and the Spartanburg area is growing rapidly in terms of weekend outing possibilities and stuff to do on weeknights. The benefits package provided for employees is competitive, and many perks such as "staff development funds" etc. make the lower salaries more tolerable.

    Cons

    The employees generally enjoy their jobs but don't get paid as much as similar jobs in other schools (though I've heard the salaries have increased since I was there). Also, most people I worked with ended up working more than 40 hours a week and often worked "on call" hours as well. Also on the down side, there is little inter-department interaction so staff members may still be meeting other staff members 8 months into the year and may even finish the academic year without having gotten to know entire department teams. Also, although it's growing, Spartanburg is still a SMALL town.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know the lower levels of the staff more.
