    I worked at DeVry University part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    This job is good for students that need job experience. It's setup for you to succeed in the classroom; meaning you can only work on dates or times when class is not scheduled.

    Cons

    The pay is slightly above minimum wage. Dealing with some students and employees from other departments can be annoying.
