Pros: somewhat flexible work schedule. food and drinks at meetings and events.
Cons: treasurer job ended in one year. no benefits for treasurer job. no benefits for academic specialists, temporary employment with no gaurantee of continued work
I worked in one fun, friendly, and easy part-time job as Executive Treasurer in student government. I learned more about management and how to apply it on the job. Management was friendly, helpful, and professional. My coworkers were also the same. It was hard to solve problems with the time given in the job. I really enjoyed the fun on and off the – more... job that the department provided. After that job ended, I applied for another job in any department and was called in to be a part-time Academic Specialist. I assisted graduate academic coordinators in setting up student field placement contracts. It was very high pressured job. The amount of work greatly exceeded the number of work hours provided. Management dragged their feet with modifying the job by making it full time in order to help balance out the workload. The job was still part-time when I left. I mostly enjoyed the somewhat flexible work hours and the ability to serve the public which were the students. My coworkers were friendly and I enjoyed working with them. – less
