    I worked at West Virginia University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    West Virginia University is located at Morgantown of WV, which is a gorgeous place to live.The students there are simple and faculty are nice.

    Cons

    It will be greater if the students are more active and positive in class and the faculty are more available. Sometimes students are not very responsive in class.

    Advice to Management

    It will be great if they have a management system that require students to learn on their own, and professors are more productive.


  2. Convenient for student workers, hectic around exams

    I have been working at West Virginia University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Student jobs at WVU are plentiful and generally enjoyable. There are many "work-study" options that allow student to carry a job that requires minimum attention so they are able to do homework while on the clock. These generally do not have a flexible time schedule and will require a 15-20 hr commitment per week. There are other opportunities that let you pick your own hours such as tutoring. You may tutoring in a specific lab such as the math or engineering department, or you may tutor in a variety of subjects for the disability program and for athletes. The last type of job I am familiar with are research and job related work. There are many places on the university campus that will allow you to experience work in your field while you are a student. These may not pay the best but do provide invaluable experience. Most supervisors are understanding that you are a student and you may not be able to work the full 20 hrs per week. There is also certain jobs that pay well with up to $1 raise per hour every other semester.

    Cons

    The few cons I have are that you will rarely leave campus if you work there. It's nice because it saves travel time but you feel as if you live at the school. Another drawback is that work often becomes overwhelming around exams because everyone is trying to call off at the same time

    Advice to Management

    None currently, I enjoy my work.
