I have been working at Rhode Island College part-time (More than 3 years)
- Fun and close niche culture
- Conveniently on campus (able to go from class to work and work to class)
- Schedule flexibility (students are able to design work schedule to fit in with their class schedule)
- Year round employment
- No down time
- The pay can be better, considering the amount of work we do
- Not much appreciation is given to student workers
I applied through other source. The process took 7+ months. I interviewed at Rhode Island College (Providence, RI) in June 2013.
When I went to the interview I was impressed that the two supervisors had actually read my resume and supporting materials. They asked very specific questions about my past work. Most potential employers seem to have only scanned the resume and then ask standard canned questions during the interview. This interview was different as they clearly wanted to know my strengths and see if we would be a good fit.
Very straight forward. The salary was set and I knew that from the beginning of the application process. We did negotiate my schedule and it was worked out in a way that both provided coverage for the office and allowed me to meet my personal obligations. That process was excellent.
