I worked at St. Cloud State University

Pros

Flexibility - half of the work (such as grading and reporting) can be done on your own time. Which ever class you TA for, you end up learning a lot without homework and tests.

Cons

Budgets sometimes don't allow for you to get paid for the time you put in. The University prefers to hire people who have financial aid paying for work time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make sure you hire someone that is knowledgeable with D2L and spreadsheet systems such as Microsoft Excel. Also- students don't usually visit office hours so you can save money by not having your TA's do office hours outside of finals week.

    Pros

    good benefits, room and board... good experience, you learn a lot.... Over all a great experience, that gives you very marketable skills.

    Cons

    VEry large time commitment, often times you will deal with large amounts of undue stress and employee conflict. VEry much like high school.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    reconsider some of the people you hire, and make sure that they are mature enough to handle the position, and not just being the center of attention....
