Dining Services Student Supervisor (Former Employee) – Saratoga Springs, NY – February 17, 2019
The management staff was okay. The culture is not bad; the full-time workers (some of them) really made it. I've worked both as a student worker and a student supervisor. I definitely liked being in a managerial position
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Saratoga Springs, NY – February 13, 2019
The staff at Skidmore are extremely underpaid. The staff is what keeps Skidmore running but yet no one cares about the staff. If you don't have the word director in your title or are a faculty member you pretty much don't matter.
Short Order Cook (Former Employee) – Saratoga Springs, NY 12866 – October 18, 2018
All in all this was a good place to work. The students and staff are great and I made a lot of friends while working here. My only complaint about the job is if you don't fit into your managers clique then you are considered an outsider and will be targeted and scrutinized more, while people that are in the clique can get away with anything.
Writing Center Tutor (Former Employee) – Saratoga Springs, NY – August 18, 2018
I attended Skidmore College for 4 years. Starting in my Sophomore year I worked as a tutor in the Writing Center on campus. It was an excellent place to work as I got to be paid as well as practice my own writing skills.
Media Services Student Technician (Current Employee) – Saratoga Springs, NY – June 13, 2018
I am a student worker, so I do not receive the same benefits as those who actually work for the college. It's more of a part-time job sort of thing. Therefore, I cannot give a proper review or rating of what it is like to work at Skidmore. The ratings that I had given are completely arbitrary and should not be considered into the overall work experience there. The only reason those stars are there is because I thought they were required. From my experience though, I've had a good time.
Graphic Designer (Student) (Current Employee) – Saratoga Springs, NY – January 27, 2018
I set my own hours as a graphic designer so it makes my time flexible and I can work as much or as little as I want. It's my school so I'm glad to be a part of the community by using skills I learned at Skidmore.
Student Ambassador (Former Employee) – Saratoga Springs, NY – January 11, 2018
Skidmore was a great college to work for. They did their best to make sure that all employees were happy and well informed. They scheduled employees fairly. Each employee went through various trainings to make sure that they were educated and professional.
Leadership Gift Officer (Current Employee) – Saratoga Springs, NY – December 21, 2017
Distracted management is one of the greater difficulties at Skidmore and a culture based on tasks not goals adds to this difficulty. On a positive note, staff are collegial and pleasant to one another, and teamwork is emphasized within divisions on shared projects.
Resident Assistant (RA) (Current Employee) – Saratoga Springs, NY – October 14, 2017
Skidmore Reslife is an awesome place to work as a student at Skidmore College. It pays for housing, and you receive the opportunity to strengthen your leadership skills, as well as your clerical, social, time management, and communication skills.
Student Technician Assistant (Former Employee) – Saratoga Springs, NY – September 26, 2017
Student work was decent and there were a lot of opportunities available to students who wanted to earn some extra money while at school. The work was satisfying and educational and management was good.
