    Former Employee - Resident Assistant in Tempe, AZ

    I worked at Arizona State University for less than a year

    Pros

    Working as Resident Advisor was one of the best times in my undergraduate career. The program I worked for had a great work environment. My supervisors were great at meeting our needs and this program included room and board. It was over the summer.

    Cons

    The only downside was that it was a 3 week program at the beginning of the summer. So it was a stipend job.

    Pros

    You will learn from students and professors at the sam time. A good time to observe a teacher's teaching methods and behaviors.

    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.
