    Pros

    It's a lovely campus, and the other faculty and staff are pretty pleasant.

    Cons

    The pay isn't exactly great.

    Advice to Management

    An easy way to make visiting faculty happy- let them be called "Visiting Asst Prof" instead of "lecturer". It's just a matter of respect for your legions of vising faculty.

    I worked at University of Richmond (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's a pleasant environment, coworkers are quite nice. Everything is usually quite clean and welcoming. They do offer good benefits for full timers with education reimbursements for you and your children. A lot of delicious food! The chefs are always adding new things to the menu from all over the world. Many special events also which are quite fun. You get to meet interesting driven students from all over the world as well. A good sense of a community and belonging. You will feel at home here and will be a spider! Paid time off when the university is closed (winter break!!). Opportunity to work elsewhere on campus during the summer. Lighter work load during the summer.

    Cons

    No benefits for part time workers, dinner break is quite early (usually 4:00pm/5:00pm), you receive last priority for time off, students can be quite rude, rotating weekends off. $14-15 max wage for some positions. Yearly raises were $0.10-0.25 depending on your annual evaluation of performance. Cafeteria can be demanding during busy hours, cleaning up after messy and sometimes ungrateful students. Negativity from supervisors. Required to work even on bad snow days or tornado warnings.

    Advice to Management

    Don't overlook how the staff managing the kitchen staff treat them. I saw quite a bit of bullying from supervisors. Don't undermine your staff. The students come first but keep in mind they're also individuals striving for the best they can obtain.

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers, energetic environment, encouraging workplace to continue to learn and grow.

    Cons

    Difficult to implement true, lasting, sustainable changes. Primary focus is protection of the institution before protection of employees and students.


  11. "Student Worker"

    Pros

    The university allows for lots of opportunities to work all over campus with flexible hours depending on student schedule.

    Cons

    Depending upon what job you are looking for, the amount you get paid varies greatly. You should make sure you pick a job depending upon whether you would like to do your own work still or a job that you will be busy for the whole shift.

    Advice to Management

    I believe the management is great at getting students involved with job fairs and updates on the daily Spiderbytes.
