    Pros

    Being a student assistant at school office only involves ad-hoc works. I would say estimably half of the time could be used for self-studies.

    Cons

    I genuinely do not know if there is any badside. It pays average, but the workload is so little. Couldn't complain.

    Advice to Management

    None. They have been pretty perfect: very gentle and kind, helpful, treat fellow student assistants with respects.
