    I have been working at Northwestern University part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Everything is close to home and the employers are cognizant that we are students. Always willing to let you take more shifts and don't baby you.

    Cons

    Boss will tell you that you are being promoted and then never follow through. Also very little given when hardships arise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We want to do the best job possible while making friends. Let us have some freedom and see if we can develop any new ideas for future use.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Northwestern University.

    Interview Details

    The Hiring Manager emailed to schedule after about 20 day later of applying online
    I was late to the interview because I was not able to find parking. Once I got to the office, I quickly met with the with the Manager. Standard questions were asked, the manager provided a relaxing environment. I had the opportunity to also be interviewed by an employee. The whole process took about 1.5 hours. A week later, HR contacted me to start the background check. Two weeks after, I was offered the job.
