    I worked at Amherst College part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Really is like working as part of a big family towards a shared goal, tons of opportunity to interact with people from across the world, your work directly supports a hugely important shift towards greater representation in higher education

    Cons

    Overtime work expected during busy seasons, student interns' levels of commitment to the job varies

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up, everyone!

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Amherst College.

    Interview

    I applied through a friend who was currently a campus center manager and liked the job. The interview was easy, a few fit questions but nothing more. The pay is good and you get to do your homework!
