    I worked at College of Wooster part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Worked in the Strength Center during the summer:
    - Easy work
    - Only responsibilities were really to occasionally clean the equipment and clean up at the end of the night

    Cons

    Could be dull especially if no one came in... though at the same time as long as you are alert to what's going on around you they don't really care what you do at the desk

    I worked at College of Wooster full-time

    Pros

    The head coach is simply wonderful. You will have to opportunity to voice your oppositions and design your own workouts and be listened to.

    Cons

    Athletic department is really unfair and illogical. There were open offices and I was forced to work in the student worker area and with coaches were packed two to a cubical.

    I have been working at College of Wooster full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great health benefits. They also give you 12% retirement match if you put in 3%. Awesome colleagues. Beautiful campus.

    Cons

    My dept. structure. My job didn't have any advancement opportunities. Supervisors weren't in the know. Apparently there were political forces at work when you asked for a raise. Base pay was below average.

    Advice to Management

    Understand employee benefits and how to request raises for employees. Treat all employees the same.

    Pros

    Didn't really have much work, sat there and did my homework. People hardly came up to me.

    Cons

    Too boring at times, there was hardly any traffic at the circulation desk. But I enjoyed it as well, so not sure if it counts as a con

    Advice to Management

    I think there needs to be more encouragement for the students to use library resources, theres so much yet so little being used.


  7. "Life Guard"

    I worked at College of Wooster (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The responsibilities were minimal and the pool remained empty for the majority of the time that I was on duty
    Great way to earn money while attending the college
    Allows guards who are not watching the pool to work/study while on standby

    Cons

    When your shift ends at the same time that you have to be at class can become a problem (particularly if the life guard in the next shift arrives late)

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. It is not a bad job to work at all. No changes need to be made!

    Pros

    I loved my time as a working student at the college. There is a great work/class/life balance and I had a great relationship with my supervisors and co-workers.

    Cons

    I can't think of any cons in retrospect.

    I have been working at College of Wooster (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Open-minded community with a lot to offer students. Lots of passionate faculty and staff who truly believe in the College's mission. Beautiful campus located in great small town.

    Cons

    Slow to change. Faculty to staff relations can be very rocky. Not much room for career growth for many positions. Currently under a lot of administrative roll-over, which could be good or bad.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to encourage faculty/staff relationship building. Make sure staff are shown equal appreciation and say in running the business.

    Pros

    You can apply for student employment, class credit, experience, or just general employment.
    Great atmosphere to work in
    Gives you a chance to explore your talents

    Cons

    With coarse load, you can only work so many hours, and I never had a chance to make my full student employment balance
