    I worked at Marymount University part-time

    Pros

    It was convenient, to have a job that I could easily go to while I was on campus, the hours are flexible.

    Cons

    The graveyard shift is never great, but it's a must.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful with the schedules around daylight saving time.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Marymount University (Arlington, VA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Awful experience and waste of time. They expected me to interview from 9 am until 3:00 or 3:30 pm. I was in the rain all day because I had to move from Ostapenko Hall to other buildings to meet different interviewers. Also, a campus tour was included which should have been cancelled due to the weather. I was expected to walk a mile outside in the rain in heels so how presentable could I be by the end of the day? In fact, it would put most women at a disadvantage because women typically wear heels to interviews whereas men do not.

    I met with 12 different staff members or students. During the interviews, I was consistently asked the same questions over and over again by different people. One person didn't bother to show up, and nobody bothered to explain it; the other 2 interviewers had no idea where the missing person was. One of the ladies was dismissive as I provided answers to her questions. She constantly interrupted me with "uh huh...uh huh" as if she had no interest in what I was saying. I was interviewed by students, who didn't even have a degree, as if they would be my employer, and they arrived late. The lunch in the cafeteria was horrid.

    I was informed that lodging would be provided for 2 nights being that I was travelling from out of town. They decided to house me in a student dorm and the efficiency was filthy (toilet, bathroom floor, mini-frig, etc.) and pathetic (chevron patterned comforter that didn't match the sheets). As a professional with her Ph.D., I expected more. If they had no intentions of housing me in a hotel or something equivalent to one, I could have either respectfully declined or found my own accommodations. Afterwards, I was told that nobody else has had issues before, and I was reimbursed $100 for 2 nights in a hotel. You can't even find a decent hotel in the area for $100 a night. It was a complete slap in the face and disgraceful.

    I was the last person they interviewed, and I honestly believe that they had already determined who would fill the vacancy before I even arrived. In the end, this was a complete and utter waste of time and energy. I will never apply to Marymount University in the future; they don't have their "stuff" together.
