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

    Pros

    Teaches you customer service and how to provide technical support. Job is also very flexible and opens up opportunity to go into a more technical job.

    Cons

    Nothing much really. It's flexible and you can choose your own hours.

    Pros

    Really good work-life balance, they let you focus on your studies when you need to. Having access to the office whenever is a huge plus because it's a nice study space. Everyone else is also a student so it's easy to make friends.

    Cons

    None that I can think of!

    I have been working at Rescomp part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Comprised of a huge student staff, a fun environment, great place to learn lots technically as well as develop your soft skills.

    Cons

    Depending on which individual student team you're on, you may not be able to interact much with other employees or staff members, and may only work in the office or elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    They do a great job of keeping everything organized and up to date, and maintain a great environment and community that is helpful and enjoyable.

    I have been working at Rescomp part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The biggest advantage for a busy college student like me is having a lot of flexibility in choosing when to work. Also everyone who works here is trained in having good customer service which means lots of friendliness and good conversation when I'm in the office. Most of the time, sitting in at ASC office hours and manning Helpdesk shifts are not very busy so I can be productive doing other things while waiting around.

    Cons

    Sometimes the appointments that people ask to make with you can be spaced apart at awkward intervals, which isn't necessarily bad, just annoying. Also sometimes clients will have issues that are really specific to his/her situation or computer set-up, which means the hours I put into training at the beginning of the year gives way to Googling for solutions until I can help solve the issue.

    Pros

    Amazing real-world, impactful work experience. Ability to learn new skills and friendly environment. Recruit excellent student talent to work on large-scale issues.

    Cons

    Male dominated, though less so now. Hard to manage student schedules. The work feedback cycle is few and far between sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Take student involvement and ideas to heart, but also provide guidance and leadership when necessary. Involve only key players in decisions to avoid stagnation.

    Pros

    Very Flexible, lots of opportunities to get hours, looks good on resume, great pay for a college job (14.25 at time of writing), you can work during summer

    Cons

    Pay is good for college, but bad compared to other similar jobs on campus, sometimes unit supervisors (other students) are mediocre

    Advice to Management

    Rescomp is what you make of it; if you want to be very involved, you can, and if you just want to work, you can do that too -- I like that! Keep it that way. Fight the RIAA!
