I worked at Michigan Technological University part-time (more than a year)

Pros

It is not a major time commitment. You are able to work anywhere from two to fourteen hours a week, and if you need any days off it is pretty easy to get them.

Cons

The hours that you work are usually from six to eight at night every day. This is usually when study groups or student organizations meet, so it can cut into them quite a bit.
