    Former Employee - Grader  in  Tempe, AZ
    Former Employee - Grader in Tempe, AZ

    I worked at Arizona State University part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I was given the opportunity to work under a wonderful professor, who took my professional development very seriously. He really helped me become a better instructor and scholar.

    Cons

    There were no benefits with my job, and the pay often times didn't work out to be worth the hours that graders and teaching assistants put in... In my department, there wasn't even a tuition assistance, so I was paying full out of state tuition, while working for the university.

    The experience varies working with different professor. Some professors have you participate in teaching and syllabus design and some don't!

    Undergraduate Assistant Teacher

    Former Employee - Teaching Assistant  in  Phoenix, AZ
    Former Employee - Teaching Assistant in Phoenix, AZ

    I worked at Arizona State University full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Incredibly rewarding experience for upper classman. Flexible schedule. Excellent chance to build a community

    Cons

    Can occasionally be difficult to work with professors because of class schedules. Lack of career growth. Internal politics occasionally constrain projects. Limited budget.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not too much advice, considering the budgetary restraints on departments. In a perfect world (with no budget) I would recommend working with student employees to develop professional skills.

    Pros

    I loved the sense of community at ASU West. Much more personal and sincere. My primary investigator really cared about my personal developement.

    Cons

    The main campus could use more dedication to the sciences and less attention to its sports department.......

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up your outstanding work!

    Current Employee - Student Worker IV in Tempe, AZ

    I have been working at Arizona State University part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Flexible schedule
    -Significantly good pay scale for student workers
    -Lots of openings available for students to support school expenses
    -Variety of opportunities ranging from desk assistants to programmers to researchers
    They have a dedicated site for student jobs where you can filter by category and pay scale. You can also search by keywords to find jobs that match your skills. The hiring system is completely online and thus transparent. Most of the students get one or other part-time position to get them through school which is really good.

    Cons

    None to be pointed out
