Student Paint Crew Member (Former Employee) – Fredericksburg, VA – July 3, 2017
The UMW student paint crew is great for a summer job, especially for students who need employment while staying in the area. The people are typically fun, there's a lot of camaraderie, and the supervisor is an amazing person. But a word to prospective student hires: this will probably be the most work you have ever done in your life, and possibly the most you will ever do. I am not kidding. Prepare to sweat. All. Day. This job is comparable to a construction job, and many of the buildings do not have air conditioning. The pay is honestly not great, especially for the amount of work involved. But if you want a rewarding summer job at a place with great people, have some fun in the process, and sweat your butt off, this is the job for you.
Amazing environment to learn about the literary world
Nonfiction Editor (Former Employee) – Fredericksburg, VA – June 20, 2017
I was refined and sifted while in this position. I discovered more about writing and the publishing industry that I have ever known before, and I learned how to publish my own works. Great position to have for a semester!
Lab Assistant (Former Employee) – Fredericksburg, VA – April 17, 2017
Gained a lot of experience in different methodologies. The manager was a no BS guy and had high expectations. I was expected to figure things out on my own, but I learned a lot regardless so it was a fulfilling experience.
Resident Assistant (Former Employee) – Fredericksburg, VA – April 14, 2017
My time at UMW was tumultuous to say the least, the year I spent as an RA was doubly so. RA's are expected to go above and beyond the duty we are trained for or even paid for, with little appreciation from either our staff or our students.
Veterans Service Representative (Former Employee) – Fredericksburg, VA – February 22, 2017
Manning the campus office and phones to provide veterans and/or dependents with assistance using educational benefits and filing secure documents and additional information. Occasional time spent representing campus office at job fairs and other veteran related events.

Graduate Assistant: Orientation (Former Employee) – Fredericksburg, VA – January 11, 2016
It's a caring environment where your coworkers and supervisors want you to grow and have new experiences. Best part of the job are the people: those who work in Student Affairs as well as the UMW students.
Student Transition Program (Former Employee) – Fredericksburg, VA – November 28, 2015
The most enjoyable part of my job would probably be building relationships with the students and the staff. I really liked everyone I worked with which made the job alot more easier. The job was stressful at a times but because everyone liked each other it really made the job enjoyable.
Software Developer and Tester (Former Employee) – Fredericksburg, VA – August 17, 2015
The work was fun and entertaining. It also provided a good space for learning the SDLC and testing procedures. It was difficult getting the team to work together, but it also provided team managing skills as well.
Resident Director, Residence Life (Former Employee) – Alvey Hall – February 9, 2015
I interacted with the residents in my building to find out what was working for them and what they were unhappy with within the residence hall. I reported my findings to my supervisor. The management was often unorganized but akways had the students best interest at heart. Once a week as a Resident Assistant, or for two weeks a semester as a Resident Director, I would be on dute. If an incident occurred in my building as an RA or anywhere on campus as an RD during this time, I had to manage it, whether it was a prank involving someone pulling the fire alarm or a serious crisis.,
