    Pros

    As a Student Worker, the hours were very flexible! Great group of Admissions Staff to work with and to know.

    Cons

    The only con I would have to say would be communication. There were a few times that you were not notified if a counselor was in or not and it would delay the time of appointment for the student/visitor due to backtracking.
