    I worked at University of Florida part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very flexible. Great people to work with. Short shifts

    Cons

    You can't always find shifts, it's difficult to work 20 hours a week. Plus you're pretty much having to use Facebook to find shifts

    Operations Associate At Rec Sports Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Florida.

    Interview

    The interview was honestly humiliating and the worst interview experience I have ever been through. It was a group interview of 16 people, all fighting over the attention of five supervisors. We were split into groups of four, with a supervisor to evaluate our ability to solve a problem as a team. There was obvious favoritism as the supervisor for my group was giving high fives to my fellow team members and asking them how they were doing. We were then asked to come up with a group presentation within our group on a topic that was given to us. My group presented, and the evaluator asked us questions condescendingly and shook his head when we didn't "answer correctly", essentially embarrassing us in front of the group. For a job that pays minimum wage, this interview was absolutely unnecessary! I also thought it was very strange that they had a photo of me from my student ID on their evaluation sheet before I walked into the interview. This makes me think that potential discrimination could have taken place.
