Animator (Former Employee) – Lancaster, PA – June 26, 2018
My experience as a student at Franklin and Marshall College was overall a positive experience. The staff members and the wide variety of classes and activities made attending there a pleasant experience.
Research and Lab Assistant (Former Employee) – Lancaster, PA – March 30, 2018
As a summer student, I learned a lot and was given ample work to do. I felt I was given great guidance initially so I could accomplish my tasks successfully without further assistance going ahead in the experiments.
Squash Aces Tutor (Current Employee) – Lancaster, PA – March 28, 2018
This is an extra curricular activity and not an actual job, therefore I don't have any reviews about it . I do, however, love working for squash aces and I am looking forward to going back to campus next semester to work some more.
Housing (Current Employee) – Lancaster, PA – February 12, 2018
The school is great; very progressive and moving towards achieving some actual diversity. However, the population is still overwhelmingly privileged and the Lancaster area is not only not very welcoming, but also too under developed for undergraduate students to get what they should out of college.
Telecommunications Specialist (Former Employee) – Lancaster, PA – January 7, 2018
While I was working at Franklin & Marshall College Center for Opinion Research, I was also playing college football and taking 2 summer classes. I did not have enough time to train for football, concentrate on my classes, and work a full-time job, so Franklin & Marshall provided me with great job experience and allowed me to work hours that fit with my schedule. I usually worked 5 days a week for 4 hour shifts (5pm-9pm). I was extremely good at talking with people on the phone and making them feel comfortable. Although many people worked here for their full-time job and were much more invested than I was, I still was just as good as anybody in the office at getting surveys completed. All of my supervisors would say that I am extremely intelligent, polite, and hard working. In fact, I have had many callers ask to speak with my supervisor or call them back to tell them how much they enjoyed speaking with me and how polite and professional I was.
Convenient work hours
Consistently finish projects before expected completion date, and go weeks without work because we finished early
Facilities (Current Employee) – Lancaster, PA – April 21, 2017
I have worked at F&M for 3 years. I have enjoyed my time here as far as the work in concerned. However, after working here for that amount of time, pay raises have not kept current with cost of living increases. Great benefits, but they don't pay enough to be competitive in the local job market.
Office Assistant (Current Employee) – Lancaster, PA – April 5, 2017
Whenever I would come in, I was constantly greeted by appreciative and supportive people. I always found work to do, and the staff understood that, as a student-worker, that my school work came first and were very flexible.
Office Assistant, Psychology Department (Current Employee) – Lancaster, PA – March 15, 2017
I started working here since my freshman year at college, as one of the student workers of the school. Through almost 4 years working as an office assistant to the Psychology Department, I've gained a lot of valuable experience in a very professional yet friendly work setting.
Front Office Operations Assistant (Current Employee) – Lancaster, PA – January 21, 2017
Everyday I would welcome and assist anyone that visited the office. In addition, I was responsible for picking up phone calls and taking messages. I also had to set up appointments for current students and alumni.
The workplace is extremely friendly and welcoming.
Most enjoyable part of the job was learning something new! (There's always room to learn in this workplace)
