    I worked at Haverford College full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly knowledgeable people. Great environment. Effective staff. Get to get out of office often. Paid work lunch. Beautiful campus. Opportunity to learn and grow.

    Cons

    Rude students or faculty. Can get busy to overwhelming fast. There are down times where there is nothing at all to do

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring great staff

    Pros

    Excellent bosses, pretty easy going, and good pay. You can really find a job that's a good fit for you.

    Cons

    Some of the positions are a lot more intensive than other student positions, but everyone makes the same salary. Students working in low intensity jobs have time to do homework while on the clock. But this is not really a con.

  3. "Wonderful - writing tutor"

    Pros

    Everyone is so nice! It's a lovely community to be a part of. Very respectful. Working as a writing tutor was very rewarding.

    Cons

    The compensation as a first year working student was not very high, but compared to other student jobs at other colleges, it is much better than it could be!

    I have been working at Haverford College part-time

    Pros

    Great environment, helpful, cooperative, and highly intellectual. Really enjoyable experience as a young person beginning in the field. Would definitely recommend.

    Cons

    Small in all departments. The small size limits your interactions with other employees, which I find to be really important in a work place.

    Advice to Management

    The commitment to a small size as a school is commendable, so my chief complaint shouldn't really be taken to heart.

    Very generous and flexible with hours, management are very understanding of circumstances outside of work. The coworkers are great, and everyone is oriented towards helping employees.
