    Pros

    This was one of the best places to work at while in college. Looks great on a resume but it doesn't take up that much work or effort(at least back when I did it)

    Cons

    I really got paid 9.5 per hour but they wouldn't let me write that.
    It may become too big of a commitment because of the admin change and then not as worth doing.

    Advice to Management

    Respect how these workers are subsidized either through work-study or through an hourly wage(as opposed to the salaried FT folks) and don't expect them to act like FT Staff.

    I worked at Davidson College full-time

    Pros

    You get a paycheck...
    The work environment is very relaxed (to a fault)

    Cons

    The biggest problem is the lack of genuine leadership and desire to improve oneself. The Davidson community prides themselves in their honor code to a fault. Instead of addressing any wrongdoings, they are more likely to avert their eyes because "things like that don't happen at Davidson." They are too comfortable and their performance suffers as a result. If you are a job seeker who wants their work to mean something, then go somewhere else. The hypocrisy is very real and overwhelming.

    Advice to Management

    Plan for the future and address breaches of your honor. It is disheartening and hypocritical to hold your heads high because of you committment to the honor code only to turn away from progress and cower in the face of trials.
