    I worked at Agnes Scott part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work closely with professors, great networking connections, flexible hours, excellent mentorship opportunities

    Cons

    Hours are limited, salary growth is limited, few opportunities to change positions, hours can be inconsistent

    Advice to Management

    It would be great if there was a way to get more consistent hours when working with professors. Students have the opportunity to work up to 20 hours each pay-period, but that can be significantly reduced if the professor does not provide 20 hours worth of work.

    I have been working at Agnes Scott part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Agnes Scott College is dedicated to helping their students gain necessary and helpful learning experiences in various departments on campus. I worked in Technology Production Services as a student assistant for two years and with the Center for Writing and Speaking as a tutor, and have been fortunate to learn how to work in a team oriented environment and provide good customer service. I really enjoyed working at Agnes because my coworkers as well as management were fair and consistent in scheduling hours, so maintaining a good work/school balance was very achievable. While there was no room for student workers to advance in the departments they work for, in some instances, the work experience gained is completely applicable to real world jobs. My current employer recruits through Agnes Scott, so there are many opportunities for students to find work outside of campus as well.

    Cons

    The pay is low. Even though I had excellent work experiences I feel that I did an large amount of work for very little pay. I worked for minimum wage as well as about a dollar above minimum wage hourly for a maximum of 30 hours weekly. There also is no ability for advancement in student jobs or pay raises, which is due to the College's recent budgeting decreases.

    I have been working at Agnes Scott full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    great cafeteria food with $3 lunch for all staff and faculty, low parking fees compared to other colleges, great location, sense of community, blue jean friday, friendly atmosphere, safe campus

    Cons

    The college is behind the times in some areas, limited or no wifi, lack of office space in many departments, deferred maintenance in a lot of buildings

    Advice to Management

    There is a lot of talk about empowering female students, I think the college could do more to empower female staff and faculty members by closing the salary gap between men and women, focusing on internal promotions and providing continuing education and training.
