    I worked at University of Nevada, Reno part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked as a GRA for 1.5 years while working on my masters degree. The academic office I was employed in was amazing. It was not overly bureaucratic; my boss did not micromanage and provided me, along with my other graduate colleagues, with so much freedom. He valued my opinion and was very flexible and supportive. He always encouraged me to put school first, which was incredibly helpful when semesters became hectic.

    Overall:
    -I loved the environment (not just my office, but the school in general)
    -I felt appreciated and valued
    -I was challenged intellectually and always given opportunities to grow
    -My opinion mattered
    -My colleagues were supportive
    -UNR was the perfect size, not too big, but not too small.
    -There is certainly a "family" vibe on campus
    -My office was not stuffy; we were casual, which is something I loved!

    Cons

    -Would have liked more opportunities to collaborate within the office (usually we worked on many different tasks and "did our own thing") and outside with other departments as well.
    -You will definitely experience overly bureaucratic individuals and departments on campus, but that's the nature of H.E.

    Advice to Management

    The family environment at UNR is incredible and I hope it continues to feel this way for students and new employees!

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at University of Nevada, Reno.

    Interview

    For on campus student jobs, utilize the career studio in crafting your resume. Arrive early to your interview dressed professionally. This means no jeans. Personality plus is necessary in this interview. Also, taking 15 credits a semester or 30 credits a year is required in almost all departments. The university is a great place to work for students who can balance their courses and are already to be professional.
