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

    Pros

    I happen to have spent many hours on campus, and getting paid for sticking around was a sweet deal. I was lucky to get a job with the department in charge of my major, so I got to meet some amazing people who are experienced in the field I'm working towards. I got some insight into how the college worked, and I managed to do well

    Hours will cater to your class schedule, so you don't have to worry about having it the other way around. As a student worker, the fact that you are a student will be taken into account.

    Cons

    I have heard that some supervisors are very quick to temper. Be sure to know who you're working with.

    For FWS students, there is a cap of 20 hours/week. Pay is a joke, but that shouldn't be bad if you're working a second job off-campus.

    I worked at Middlesex County College part-time

    Pros

    Is a great environment to work with. Coworkers are friendly and supportive.

    Cons

    Sometimes is difficult to help too many students at the same time. Need to recruit more tutors especially in high demand subject such as Mathematics.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Middlesex County College full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Location is close to home, the college closes often on snow days, college is close on Fridays from mid May through 2nd week of August

    Cons

    There is no room for growth. You can remain in your same position for years even if you have a degree and are qualified to move up. Everything depends on who you know and how well you are liked.

    Advice to Management

    Take Management 101. Learn how to communicate, stop with favoritism, learn how to work with employees who are ranked lower than you are. Assist when needed instead of passing the work onto someone else.

    I worked at Middlesex County College full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    For full time employees the benefits are great. Medical and tuition reimbursement.
    Nice campus,
    Majority of the other employees are nice.
    Good for those who want to complete a degree then move on.

    Cons

    It depends on the department. I've worked at 4 different departments. Some are nice, laid back, the jobs can be done with little hassle. Others will drive a person to the brink of insanity. Especially in Admission, Bursar, Financial Aid and Registrar offices.
    There is little opportunity for advancement. The only way to advance is to wait for someone to retire. Typically the interview process is just a formality, a replacement is already decided on prior to the job being posted.

    Friendly staff for the most part. Many of the staff have been here for years and the cliques
    can be a challenge to break

    Pros

    Very Flexible timings as an STA working in the CS department. Also the job is very light, allowing for studying much of the time.

    Cons

    There is really not much to say. Simple job for students.
