fantastic opportunities

Teaching Assistant (Current Employee)
Durham, NC (US)

I have been working at Duke University part-time for less than a year

ProsDuke is a fun campus with tons of jobs available for undergraduate students. You will have a lot of competition for jobs, but if you search, there will be no issue.

ConsThe competition for jobs is the toughest part. When there are fantastic opportunities available, students across campus jump at their chance and are tough to beat out.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Research Assistant (Former Employee)
Durham, NC (US)

I worked at Duke University full-time for more than a year


Pros: Salaries were competitive; benefits were great; atmosphere was top-notch, intellectually and socially. The people I worked with at Duke were friendly, intelligent, and team-oriented.
