I have been working at University of Strathclyde part-time (More than 3 years)
Great place to work, the staff are all very positive and friendly and the job is good fun. For any student I highly recommend trying to get this job and running campus tours ect it's ideal to work around classes.
There aren't really any downsides except sometimes not being able to work as many hours as you'd want to. Sometimes you need to work outside in the cold or the rain which I guess is a con.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at University of Strathclyde (Glasgow, Scotland (UK)) in January 2016.
I applied online before Christmas and attended an interview in January. The interview was with a senior member of staff and an administrator within the same team. The interview was informal and more of a chat - with competency questions thrown in. Staff were friendly however spent a lot of time questioning the unpaid voluntary work I had completed in a condescending manner.
