Athletic Grounds Crew (Current Employee), Evanston, ILSeptember 22, 2014
Pros: learn many jobs, meet amazing people, fun people to work with and great hours.
Cons: temporary and can only work 1, 000 hours in a calendar year
Northwestern University, is a great place to work on an athletic grounds crew! At Northwestern there is always a new or project to be done. The people who I work with and who work in other athletic departments make for a great work environment. The hours are great, the pay is more than minimum wage and always room for overtime. A typical day at work – more... includes, picking up garbage outside at all of the athletic facilities, landscaping, preparing game fields and the stadium as well as arena for athletic events. Move tables and chairs to necessary locations, moving heavy furniture, and building furniture. Working on the athletic grounds crew at Northwestern, I've learned how to better problem solve, pay attention to detail, work as a team, work hard, work in many different weather conditions, and develop leadership skills. The management is executed well, in terms of placing people to do projects that best suite their strengths, or better develop a weakness. The most enjoyable part of the job is the many different amazing people I've met and the relationships I've developed over the years. – less

Program Assistant (Former Employee), Evanston, ILSeptember 18, 2014
Overall, a great place to work. The benefits, which made it more worthwhile, was bit better than the the actual pay. I worked with an extremely supportive group of people. They looked out for me and that made me want to return the favor that much more.
I learned a lot about university culture and politics; I learned about event planning; I learned about – more... anticipating the needs of very different people; I learned how to communicate more effectively.
I thoroughly enjoyed the people that I worked with (both my supervisors and my work-study students) because their sense of humor made the workday move that much faster. – less
