Positive experience as grad assistant.

Graduate Assistant (Current Employee)
Jacksonville, AL

I have been working at Jacksonville State University part-time for more than a year

ProsOverall my experience as a graduate assistant at the MCIS department of JSU has been positive. I have had experience with teaching my own freshman course, which has made me more confident in public speaking and gave me the opportunity to design projects for students. The instructors and professors of the department are very enthusiastic and always have interesting research and projects to work on.

ConsThe tuition remission does not cover the online fee of courses, and all courses in the computer science graduate program are online.

ProsVery friendly work environment where employees work together and are willing to help coworkers grow professionally.

ConsNot a fast pace environment and therefore not a company for a dynamic person.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore responsibilities across the university for the decision makers in order to improve the quality and opportunities of the undergrad and graduate students after finishing their degrees.

It's Alright.

Resident Assistant (Former Employee)
Jacksonville, AL

I worked at Jacksonville State University

ProsFree housing comes with the job. In addition, you get a monthly paycheck. You save over $2000 by getting a free room each semester.

ConsYou have to work on their schedule. Additionally, the pay sucks. It is not even enough to live off of as a college student.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay should be increased yearly based on seniority.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
