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

    Pros

    - TA work is usually easy and lightweight.
    - Pay is the same as dining or other areas around campus, but the work is actually related to your field!
    - Establish rapport with professors in your major.
    - Work directly with students (sometimes teaching subjects)
    - Usually you are able to work your own desired hours.

    Cons

    - Pay is shy of minimum wage, but that is to be expected.
    - Sometimes there is not enough work to do 10 hours in a week.
    - There is the potential of having some students that require more dedication to teaching than others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give TA's a raise if they decide to stick around for more than a semester. They know what they are doing.
