    I worked at University of Massachusetts part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    GREAT benefits
    Good pay and perks for Graduate Assistants
    Great union who advocated for us when our positions were in jeopardy

    Cons

    Of course with any University position you often have to deal with politics where the governance of the University is at odds with the department.

    Advice to Management

    Be sure to listen to the needs of the department

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at University of Massachusetts (Amherst, MA) in December 2009.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview, and told that there were 10 being interviewed. I was invited to campus and given about 5 days to prepare a presentation. I presented to a group of people and then met with the person I would be working for. I was told that due to the holidays i would hear in January. I did not hear until a letter came in march that I did not get the job, which I had figured out by then.
