    Pros

    Very supportive staff and students who work hard. You can't beat the environment at the beach! The weather is great!

    Cons

    The only downside to this job is that it is difficult to get a full time contract. So if you enjoy doing this as a supplementary income, then it's perfect.

    Advice to Management

    Teachers would be more invested in their job if they were there full time and paid benefits. As it is now with so many adjuncts, there is little camaraderie among colleagues.

    Pros

    Obviously flexible with student's schedule, and gives opportunities to students in the rush week. Organized and mentors helpful, easy to understand. Friendly people around. Enough time for break and lunch. Manageable shifts.

    Cons

    If you open, make sure you wake up early early! You clock in 7.30AM. Not good if you have a long commute. It all really depends on your schedule.
    Also, chances of being hired after rush week is you against a whole lot of other student associates. It's all schedule.

    I'm not complaining about all this, it's really fun working in the bookstore. Really wished I had more chance!

    Advice to Management

    Open more opportunities! yay for more student workers!

    Pros

    A big beautiful campus, as you have to deal with a lot of undergraduate students. They provide a good opportunity for students interested in academic field to teach their favorite topics.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the salary was not enough. So you can not rely only on the part-time job at the school to live. And generally there wasn't considered any benefits for this position

    Advice to Management

    Although this job is a part-time position, but providing small benefits like giving parking spots for free would be a good option to think about it.
