    I worked at Oregon State University as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Relaxed about hours- clearly, they understand that students have constraints on their time.

    Cons

    Archaic pay system - explicitly required my Social Security card (rather than alternate documentation like a passport) for two separate student jobs only a year apart.
