    I worked at University of Vermont part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Really strong community. The Admissions counselors treated the student representatives with respect and not like children. I gained valuable communication skills. Even such a specific role in admissions there was room for advancement.

    Cons

    The time frame is very specific which excludes a lot of students from applying and can limit employees class selection.

    Advice to Management

    Change the CD playing in the Lobby every now and then.
