    I worked at Austin Peay State University part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I loved the people I worked with and management was always helpful and kind. They are also lenient when you need time off.

    Cons

    I didn't agree with the way some things were done, and many of the tutors felt like we couldn't do anything about it. Students tended to use tutors to get a slip that said they attended a session and then blamed you when their grades were bad. Management supported its tutors for the most part. Online submitters will send in the same paper 100 times until you fix every single error, and you don't have the power to tell them you won't review their paper again (and eventually you see a paper so many times that you've written it at this point and it's probably plagiarism).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My biggest advice would be to find a way to monitor online submissions and then set a limit to how many times one paper can be reviewed by our tutors. We are there to help students, yes, but it does NOT help them to point out every error and tell them how to fix it. They learn nothing that way. They do the bare minimum of work because we do it for them, and then they get rewarded with a grade they could not have gotten if they did some of the editing work themselves. Many (I would say most) of the students do not abuse our system that way, but it happened enough to be a frustrating issue that led me to consider quitting before I graduated.
