    I worked at Swarthmore College part-time

    Pros

    Pay is fine; students are given plenty of job opportunities, some more obscure than others.

    Payment management system is a bit clunky and payroll takes a while to come through and often must be submitted again.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline payroll.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Swarthmore College in June 2016.

    Interview

    Very nice people, beautiful campus, but long delays and false promises. Applied online. Called me one month later, rescheduled interview multiple times. Final interview gave every indication of job offer, but no dice. Encouraged to apply for alternate position instead.

    Swarthmore's annual sticker price ($64,840) is sobering at first glance. But more than half of its students receive need-based aid, and the average award slashes the total cost of attendance by 68 percent, to $20,584. Like many of the institutions in the upper tier of our rankings, the school's financial aid awards keep loans off the table.
