Wilson Fellow in Enterprise and Leadership (Former Employee) – Grinnell, IA – May 30, 2017
Grinnell students are amazingly smart and dedicated. It's fun to teach them. Teaching a short course, some students may be tempted not to put a lot of work into the course, but most are very dedicated.
Student Athlete (Current Employee) – Grinnell, IA – May 11, 2017
Students at Grinnell College are offered work study. I worked in the athletic buildings. The Welcome Desk and Fitness center have desks where workers sit and swipe membership cards. We had to coordinate sub shifts with other workers and supervise what happened in the athletic centers. Some people did not show up to their shifts or request subs for their shifts. The job is overall very easy. The supervisors allow us to do homework as long as we pay attention to everything that goes on and provide a welcoming face to the facilities.

The college work-study environment is exactly what it is. A fine balance between academics and work. Since academics are a priority, the campus jobs are accommodating of the academically rigorous environment.
Head of Statistics and Supervisor (Former Employee) – Grinnell, IA – June 4, 2016
My job at Grinnell College was to be in charge of statistics and on field workers for all home football games. I was given the freedom to choose my employees and place them where I felt they would perform best.

Stress level can be high. Communication across the campus is not good, but they continue to work on it. It is a very interesting place to work. You have to adapt to the culture. If you lean more liberal it will be easier.
