Great place to work
Resident Assistant (Former Employee), Holland, MIMay 27, 2013
As a resident assistant, I learned a lot about how to talk with and deal with people my age who may be disgruntled or upset about a certain thing. The hardest part about the job is trying to help other students through hardship. However, the best part of the job is when you help the students out.

Good Place for School
Kletz Snack Bar Attendant (Current Employee), Holland, MIApril 8, 2013
I attend school here, so the jobs aren't very involving. They are however, considerate of your primary status as a student.

Resident Assistant
Resident Assistant (Current Employee), Holland, MIJanuary 27, 2013
A resident assistant at Hope College is required to oversee the dorms and cottages on campus. Duties include programming, working as a team, and building an optimal community for living. The R.A.'s at Hope are required to attend fall training, winter training, and monthly semester training sessions. Training focused on leadership, diversity, community – more... building, programming, teamwork, and health. My first year duties were in a dormitory overseeing 92 men. I worked with four other R.A.'s, but was a part of one of the largest residential life teams in the state of Michigan. My second and third year as an R.A. took place in a cottage of 8 men. The cottage R.A. duties were the same as the dorm duties, but on a smaller scale. I reported to either a Residential Director, or a Neighborhood coordinator all three years. The most difficult part of the job was being a friend to my peers while performing my duties as an R.A. Enforcing policy is part of the R.A. job description, but is not always socially admirable by peers. The most enjoyable aspect of the job was becoming a part of a large team with a common goal. Hope is an amazing place, largely due to the residential life staff that works hard to create a healthy living environment. – less

Just a typical research job you can expect as an undergrad.
Bioinformatics Research Analyst (Former Employee), Holland, MiDecember 11, 2012
Pros: excellent guidance from the best professors in the field.
Cons: most positions are only limited for a short period of time.
I got to learn a lot about the world of biology and how to apply my programming knowledge to help solve real world problems in the lab. I also had the opportunity to help contribute to an abstract that wound up being published.

Overall it's a wonderful place to work if you're going to this school. If you're as lucky as I was you'll get your own office – more... with plenty of computing power. – less

I was treated with respect and as an equal.
Adjunct Professor (Former Employee), Holland, MIOctober 26, 2012
Cons: no long term contract.
I taught two sessions of one class. The management was very helpful and respected me. I was treated as an equal by all of my co-workers. The hardest part was not being on campus long enough to be able to help the students more. The most enjoyable part was having past students come back and thanking me for preparing them for the real world.

Good Summer Work Experience
Meiji Gakuin Exchange Program Leader (Former Employee), Holland, MIJune 27, 2012
Did research work and lead a cultural program for Japanese Exchange students.

Research was in subject matter I enjoyed (French Culture) under a professor who managed very well.

Friendly Enviornment
Mail Clerk (Former Employee), Holland, MIApril 25, 2012
Pros: understanding mangement, great environment
Cons: under funded
Hope College is a friendly environment where everybody nows each other. Because the college only has 3000 students even during busy seasons such as Christmas it is never too chaotic. The hardest part of the job probably was learning to use new equipment that I have never seen before or learning the protocol. Otherwise it is any ideal environment as – more... long as you are not a politically active person. – less
