Good for what it is, I guess.
Student Construction Employee (Former Employee), Point Lookout, MOJune 1, 2014
Pros: 'free' tuition, unusual courses available.
Cons: short breaks, intrusive policies, minimum wage, no chance of reimbursement for hours worked in excess of those required for tuition.
College of the Ozarks is a close-minded, fundamentalist, private Christian college, which offers a work-study program to all of it's students, using the tagline "graduate debt-free." In reality, the work study program requires between 15 and 40 hours of work a week, and covers a bare-minimum of the actual tuition, the rest being taken by a scholarship – more... they place on top of the work-study. This combined with the claustrophobic atmosphere, the inability to determine your own place of work on campus (I was assigned to the plumbing department, and then to construction despite my health problems and my major in computer science), and the scrutiny to which the administration puts every aspect of your life makes the experience at this college a nightmare for all but the most dedicated of masochists. I applaud those who have graduated, but I left after nearly having a heart attack from the stress. – less

I loved being a part of Residence Life
Resident Assistant and Dorm Maintenance (Former Employee), Point Lookout, MOMay 15, 2013
Pros: built amazing relationships with my hall director, staff members and fellow college students
During my time as a Resident Assistant I was able to mentor and develop valuable relationships with female students in a dormitory. I facilitated check-in and check-out procedures at the beginning and end of each semester, maintained a supportive and welcoming environment that fostered personal and academic growth in the college dorm, developed programs – more... and collaborated with residential staff to best serve the student population. I also spent my first semester working for Residence Life in dorm maintenance performing duties in custodial maintenance as assigned. – less

Great opportunity to work with young people
Hall Director/Convocation Supervisor (Former Employee), Point Lookout, MOApril 10, 2012
Pros: working with students, meeting new people; constantly learning
Cons: living where you work
This job was somewhere between a mom and big sister. I was over a women's residence hall, so I was helping the college students transfer from teenage years to young adult years. And in combination with that, I had to be the maintenance supervisor for the actual building by checking for leaks, mold, or furniture that needed replacing. The job required – more... a lot of discipline and a lot of patience.
And included with the dorm supervision I was also over convocations and chapels for the entire student body. So I was challenged to find programing that would engage and enlighten the students. Of course the larger the student population the harder it is to please everyone. But I enjoyed learning about how to hire a band and what was expected for bringing in a major speaker. It became a fun and exciting challenge for me. – less
