    I have been working at Dickinson College (Less than a year)

    Pros

    As a current Dickinson student, I work as a phonathon caller at the Office of Advancement. While the job can seem mundane at times, it is still a very fulfilling experience because I get to talk to so many interesting people. Potential connection building too! My boss is also probably the coolest boss ever.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

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

    Pros

    I enjoyed all the great food and all the social gatherings.

    Cons

    The biggest con is the pay,beware of working casual, what it means is that you can work 1000 h in a school year with no paid time off when students are on break and no form of benefits.stay away from casual work! Be prepared to be on your feet all the time. There's no room to grow there.

    Advice to Management

    Be a manager! Know your work!

    Pros

    tuition benefits are a nice perk, ample amount of PTO and people are nice

    Cons

    they are restructuring many offices on campus and letting qualified, hard working staff go

    Advice to Management

    don't terminate experienced, valuable, hard-working staff for younger, cheaper employees

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

    Pros

    Dickinson has great supervisors, especially in the physics department who work with employees to help them teach.

    Cons

    Pay is very low, and you usually cannot get many hours. Not a good job if you are looking for a lot of money.

    Advice to Management

    Continue good relationships between student employees and supervisors, especially as mentors for students after graduation.

    I have been working at Dickinson College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They respect and treat you right as a person, and they'll teach you the skills you need to do the work. They'll alway help you if you have any questions.

    Cons

    The pay could be higher. And the hours can be long, but it isn't too bad as long as you keep yourself busy with homework or something.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have too many complaints.

    I worked at Dickinson College (More than a year)

    Pros

    There is always a great network of individuals who are willing to help you brainstorm, work through problems, or offer advice.

    Cons

    It is, at its core, and institution. Thus, one is forced to deal with the politics that might just be a hassle for student employees. Especially if it affects you directly and you don't feel like you have a say.
