    Worked for Math Clinic under Barbara Shipman; Excellent job for full time student

    I worked at University of Texas at Arlington part-time

    Pros

    High level of autonomy, reasonable pay, excellent for maintaining math skills and enhancing your own understanding through helping others who come in. Dr. Shipman is very flexible on scheduling. Math Department pays for food when we work extra hours during finals so we don't have to leave. Relaxing environment (plenty of 'breaks', or if not, job is fun enough to not need them typically), surrounded by fellow "geeks", can work together to help a student on particularly challenging problems. Can get homework done when Clinic is not busy.

    Cons

    Electronics of all sorts are against the rules for employees to use during their shifts without exception due to previous abuses leading to students not receiving help. This ends up being a hindrance, as sometimes electronic resources are useful in addition to textbooks. This rule is often ignored and we still manage to help the students without complaints coming in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Basically, don't change a thing, but please reconsider the rule against electronics. A possible balance is seeing if the Math Department can afford to fund a computer in the Clinic to be used only for math research/helping students.
