    Great job!

    Head Lab Assistant (Former Employee) Kennesaw, GA

    ProsIt is a great job if you are serious about school work getting done and helping fellow peers. It allows you to do homework if you are not busy helping your peers or if you do not have any assignments from the boss. Each job at KSU is different so this particular position refers to the Head Lab Assistant position in the music department. From other workers at KSU they all love their jobs.

    ConsMinimum wage. For a school job that allows you to work on homework while being payed there really aren't many cons.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone.

    Good place to work

    Graduate Research Assistant (Current Employee) Kennesaw, GA

    Prosgreat opportunity to learn and growth. the position offers a tuition waiver and paid stipend. I loved working with accomplished professor who are very caring and understanding.

    Consthe pay is little and the work load can be high considering the school work, it can be hectic trying to finish the research assigned by supervisors (Prof.)

    Advice to Senior Managementkeep up with the good work
