Beautiful campus environment
Custodial Worker (Former Employee), Easton, MAJuly 12, 2012
Pros: beautiful setting, reasonable expectations, many career opportunities, free tuition for self and family
Cons: low base salary, union dues, intense windows during the year
Stonehill College is a good employer for entry level positions. There are decent benefits, particularly if you have children looking at college. The base pay is not large, but is also not poor for the industry. The volume of work is dependent on the season, as it is a college environment. However, it is hourly, and there are multiple opportunities for – more... overtime, as well as multple shift opportunities.

The one downside is the union, which does take a cut of income, and additionally sometimes works people into boxes. It would be a more flexible environment were it not for the unions. I have also observed that the union does not do much to preserve job security.

Stonehill does tend to be very set in it's ways. It is difficult to be innovative or try a new approach. In part, this is due to a very "us vs. them" mentality between management and staff. That said, the work demands are quite reasonable, and there are opportunities for work in numerous different areas, so advancement is quite possible (and I have observed it).

During student move in periods, or near deadlines (such as right before the beginning of the school year) there can be a huge increase in work volume. Work can also be physically intense. During these periods, it can be physicially stressful as there is just a small window of time to do all that is required. Additionally, custodial cleanup on Monday mornings can be expected to be unpleasant on a college.

During the slow summer months, or before a weekend during the schoolyear, it can be calmer and allow for catch up. It becomes much less rigorous, and management is very reasonable in their expectations.

The campus is beautiful as well, and it is a nice town to work in. Stonehill is also not a top party school,so there is only limited college craziness to deal with. I have observed dear and foxes and other wildlife on campus during a work day, which makes it a little more interesting work environment. – less
