    I worked at Yeshiva University part-time

    Pros

    I worked in a part-time contracted staff position, and the women I worked with were helpful and great.

    Cons

    I took over for a position that had been full-time but had been cut because of budget reasons. It was pretty unpleasant since I was kept at 19 hours, and it only takes 20 to qualify for part-time benefits.

    Pros

    Easy job and the people are friendly

    Cons

    The student librarian usually takes the weird hours that no one else wants to work. You can end up being in the library till pretty late.

    Advice to Management

    Especially when the hours are so late it you'd be nice to be paid more than 14 USD an hour.
