    I worked at Kennesaw State University

    Pros

    I worked as a student and found that the university was very supportive of me. Overall, everyone was friendly and I gained experience working with diverse groups of people.

    Cons

    The pay was low, which was expected as a student worker. There was not too much of an official time off policy, they tried to assist you in any way they could though if you needed the time off

    I am a student assistant for the Department of management in the Coles College of Business here at Kennesaw State.

    I have been working at Kennesaw State University part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits, flexibility for those with other commitments such as school, family, etc. the enviroment is very diverse snd filled individuals from various backgrounds and disciplines

    Cons

    I believe that challenges vary from department however I do believe that the inability to have a sustainable system of management can sometimes be a downfall at this particular place of employment. the turnover rate can easily impact the flow of work, putting varying amounts of strain on you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would spend more time making teamwork an essential part of the atmosphere while working as a student assistant rather than shifting unwanted duties to them. But yet expect them to write a cover letter saying 'why you want to be a part of this department'.

    I have been working at Kennesaw State University part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a flexible enough position that allows you to engage with a community that is willing to learn. The stipend is a nice surprise if you are using it to supplement a full-time position or working elsewhere as a contractor. Since classes are typically once or twice a week you're not trapped in an office, but rather need to be available for the class periods, respond to emails and occasionally schedule student meetings.

    Cons

    The stipend for one class alone is not sufficient to support living costs, however it is nice pocket change or savings. There is a limit as to how many credit hours you can teach per academic year.

    I worked at Kennesaw State University part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    As a student employee, you get priority registration which is great. Additionally, you have the ability to schedule your hours around class and most supervisors are accommodating.

    Cons

    The pay is mediocre at best, and most positions just get you through college rather than actually help you start a career.
