Generally solid but occasional poor matches
Graduate Research Assistant (Current Employee) –  Williamsburg, VAApril 14, 2017
I have worked for three different professors as a Research Assistant during grad school. For all three, my work was flexible and spread throughout the semester, with substantial variation in workload over the course of the semester. The tasks for each project were interesting for the most part, but I sometimes was unclear when things were needed and what information was most valuable, particularly with my second pairing. I appreciate the Public Policy Program matching me up with a new professor when one of them turned out to not be a good fit.
Cons
Occasionally unclear expectations and communication issues

Enjoyed working with students
Parking Services & Transportation Asst Mgr (Former Employee) –  Williamsburg, VAOctober 17, 2016
With everyone handing extremely high work loads, the days flew by but no one had time to take off work. More than half of the department was at use or loose with time and calling out sick was frowned upon since that caused others in the department who were already over worked to have to pick up your load too. On vacation, the phone rang off the hook and you were expected to handle work while away which would be okay if it were apprenticed. It is hard to keep up with cost of living increase when the state keeps your pay frozen for 17 of 23 years.
Pros
great working with students
Cons
no time away from work - to refocus or recover

It was my first choice and cheering and volunteering with the college was the best part of my time there. I would not change anything about my time there.
