    I worked at UMass Medical School part-time

    Pros

    The atmosphere was fun and I met a lot of nice people I now call my friends. Easy work.

    Cons

    I have no idea how they choose the "supervisors" but they literally had fewer credentials and education than I did working for them. They promoted a man recently to supervisor who was nothing but unprofessional when I worked there. He would mock the people he gave interviews to. It was quite sad, because he interviewed many people with mental health problems and/or who were suicidal. He thought he was being funny or sarcastic but really he just overcompensates for his own insecurities.
