    I have been working at Duquesne University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Autonomy and an overall laid-back atmosphere. I have the freedom to structure my days how I please, and so long as I do what's mine to do, everyone is happy. Very few rigid obligations.

    Cons

    When solving problems, sometimes I wish I had better access to supervisors. I often feel as though I must reinvent the wheel to solve things. This is sometimes good - occasionally I reinvent a better wheel - but sometimes it is frustrating because I know I could be way more productive if only I had a very small amount of access to someone else's time.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Duquesne University.

    Interview

    A brief phone call where they asked 3-5 vaguely related questions. 80% of the time was spent describing day to day implying they had already decided to hire me. The position was offered immediately at the conclusion of the phone interview. Salary stated on phone was lowered on actual paper offer, very disappointing but still a good opportunity for a free degree. Very little of the day to day description was accurate but the job is very different depending on who you work for.
