    I worked at Bucknell University part-time

    Pros

    Great place to work with great people. Beautiful campus and some of the kindest bosses I've ever had. Always something to enjoy on the campus

    Cons

    Pretty secluded from major cities so it might get a bit too quiet. Student life and activities geared only towards students are the main focuses on campus, hence a bit hard to find entertainment outside of the college activities. But they are diverse activities and several cultural events so it's not that much of a hardship

    Advice to Management

    Have more information out so employees looking for positions might have a better idea of when and how to apply. Encourage more staff and student interactions.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Bucknell University.

    Interview

    I thought that the interview was good overall. I felt comfortable in the environment, but I also felt like my skills were being assessed adequately. The conversation was easy and the questions were pretty straightforward. I didn't feel like I was getting pinned or pushed far to see how I would react. I got the sense that the interview was very important to the Office of Residential Education when I was participating in the interview.
