I have been working at University of California Berkeley part-time (more than a year)

Pros

They're willing to work with your schedule as a student, and provide training. Work study available. As an ACA the work is easy and you can spend time doing homework or online sometimes.

Cons

Pay is usually on the low end, for student jobs anyway. They don't let students work more than 20 hours per week. Not much potential for advancement in this role.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work on getting computer access to new employees faster.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to make assignments and jobs as educational as possible. I know work-study is mainly about giving students a way to earn their financial aid, but it can also be a great learning experience for them.
