I worked at Northwestern University part-time (More than a year)
really flexible hours, friendly work environment
tasks were tedious and sometimes felt like they had little impact, but have to be done
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Northwestern University (Evanston, IL) in March 2011.
There are two components of the interview process: various activities completed in group, and a traditional 30 minute interivew. Overall, it is a fun process and the staff tries to make you as comfortable as possible. When I went through my group interview/activities, we collaborated well and I think that made the experience better.
