    Pros

    A team that wants to let you explore different types of marketing and design.

    The team was a little scatter brained at time. Some days there would be nothing for me to do.

    Provide a steady stream of work or plan days of work around the greatest demand.

  10. "Lifeguard"

    Former Employee - Lifeguard
    Former Employee - Lifeguard

    I worked at Furman University part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The job was relatively easy and it payed well for what it was: a part time student job.

    Cons

    Due to the large number of lifeguards, it was almost impossible to get more than 2 hours of work a week. It is a good job for those wanting a bit extra money, but certainly not good for someone wanting more.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Furman University part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    $10 and hour for easy work, if labs end early you still get paid in full. Log your own hours. Get paid for setup.

    Cons

    Limited hours, lots of competition for some positions

    Advice to Management

    Don't be wasteful with money, except on us. keep paying us.
