Shift Leader in Montgomery Hall Cage (Current Employee) – Savannah, GA – April 22, 2016
I liked the work space. There was always goo team work. I learned how to properly train teach people how to work at the equipment facility. I learned how to lead when I was promoted to Shift Leader. The management is great with the employees. I learned how to really connect with my coworkers to achieve synergy within the workplace. The hardest part was remembering all the equipment policies and rules. My most enjoyable part of the job was helping those who were very desperate for a helping hand.
Great hours, very flexible for a college student, great people
Admissions Advisor (Former Employee) – Savannah, GA – May 13, 2016
Pros of SCAD: The people that I worked directly with are very wonderful and fun, excellent health benefits and fitness classes available to employees which was great.
Cons: Incredibly demanding, high work volume, nights and weekends are often required, no work/life balance, families and personal relationships are required to take a back seat to SCAD, incompetence is rewarded and hard work is overlooked. Favorites of the President are placed in positions of power and have job security even when they are dishonest and inappropriate with their subordinates.
Admissions Representative (Former Employee) – Savannah, GA – February 17, 2016
I wasn't employed here long because I found it nearly impossible to balance being a wife and a mother while working here. This job is an awesome opportunity for someone who is single who loves to travel and doesn't have a lot of other responsibilities. You really need to devote 100% of your time and energy into this position.
I attended this school, and absolutely loved it. I thought I would love working there, but this position was not for me.
Jumpstart Assistant (Former Employee) – Savannah, GA – February 21, 2016
The Jumpstart Program is a great experience. A day of work was never the same. Every day the schedule would change because there would be different things for the students to do. I learned how to talk to a crowd and keep their attention. I also learned leadership skills. The team of individuals whom I worked with were wonderful. We were a team and functioned as such. The most difficult thing about the job was the uncertain hours. We were in charge and therefore responsible for students' well-being and mental health. You never knew when you might get a call and be told you were needed across town. The part of the job that I took the most pleasure in was the satisfaction of helping these new college students transition into this new chapter in their lives.
Student (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – April 12, 2016
Savannah College of Art and Design is a great institute and can push anyone who applies themselves to the program. The staff is very nice and can provide help to all students. The work load is a lot but , SCAD prepares you for the business world.
Resident Assistant (Former Employee) – Savannah, GA – October 25, 2015
being a student and working is often hard to juggle, but when you work where you live, it's easier. Being a SCAD RA was a great experience. There was always something to do and getting residents involved in actives in the dorms, and finding common ground was fun.
Technical Co-Director, 3D and Stop-Motion Animator (Former Employee) – Savannah, GA – September 22, 2015
Fun and friendly place to work, especially because of the casual/informal nature of all those working there. Easy to approach others when in doubt making it a good learning environment. Some amount of politics but not too terrible.
Line Cook (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – July 29, 2015
A typical day at work consist of me prepping/producing approximately six menu items for dinner service. Also keeping a track of the food flow and keeping the line stock completely with food until the end of the night. The job itself is pretty descent however the management is shifting which means that at the current moment there is lack of organization and communication.I have an excellent team of individuals who enjoy what they do, which makes the day go by a little faster and smoother.
Catalog Librarian (Former Employee) – Savannah, GA – July 10, 2015
As an alumni and a former employee, I have experienced the school form both sides. It's a fast-growing school with a well-deserved reputation in the arts and design fields. Their culture has become a vibrant and integral part of the local scene. They have recently expanded to embrace a global culture of art and history that provides an avenue for exceptional art instruction.
Head Cook (Former Employee) – Savannah, GA – August 15, 2015
A great place to gain experience as a cook! There are many thing to learn and exciting recipes to use. The hardest part of the job is staying focused on work because there are so many interesting and friendly students to talk to.
SE recruiter for AP students (Former Employee) – Savannah , Ga – May 27, 2015

Waitress (Current Employee) – Savannah, GA – July 1, 2015
Working for SCAD is better and better every time I go to work and always look forward to it. The people I meet everyday truly make the experience enjoyable and my managers do an excellent job of introducing me to people who can help me advance in my career.
Resident Assistant (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – March 29, 2015
Resident assistants are student leaders who live in residence halls and assist the students who live there. RAs assist in building a community atmosphere, assist students in connecting with one another, plan programs for the residents, perform administrative duties and help enforce college policies. I have truly enjoyed my experience as an RA. I have gained a better understanding of time management and working with others.
Admission Department (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – February 12, 2015
Some departments are better than others. I worked for SCAD at both campuses. The President is a great visionary and brilliant leader. Sadly, some of the most genuine people that truly love the college and have its best interest at heart get the shaft. I saw way too many wonderful people and SCAD enthusiast get let go or quit.
If you like working events (no extra pay) and getting to see amazing exhibits then it's a great place to be. Keep a smile on your face and a positive attitude and you'll be fine. Like with any job though, if you no longer enjoy the work environment or the people you work with, then it's best to move on.
great opportunities to take classes and attend events.
