“The family and community atmosphere makes going to work a pleasure.”

 

I’ve worked at Swarthmore for 10 years. There are so many opportunities here to grow and to learn. I started out as a front-line crew leader and have progressed to an acting supervisor.

The family and community atmosphere makes going to work a pleasure. At other places I’ve worked, you are just an employee on campus. But here, everyone treats you warmly and with respect. I especially enjoy the many opportunities we have to connect with other people—events such as the Winter Gathering, Spring Celebration, and Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays, where everyone comes together as a community.

The benefits are very good and my team is supportive. There is a lot variety in my job; I’m never bored.  What’s more, the campus is beautiful year round!
