    Pros

    The pay for students are 7.25 an hour with a guaranteed 35 hours a week. You also get a free apartment what ever building you get assigned. You get paid to socialize with students and help them get acquainted at the university.

    Cons

    The office is ran by women which is not bad however their is a bias towards women over men. The bosses do run their mouth too much but you only have to see them at weekly meeting or to turn in paper work.

    Pros

    The student worker jobs at Tech have flexible schedules, are non-stressful, are catered to student's needs. The pay is good when compared to other no-experience/no-education-required positions.

    Cons

    Some will say that they dislike having to work during the quarter breaks, but for many this is merely an opportunity to work longer hours and make more money.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Keep the wellbeing of the students in mind, because we are here to get a degree, not work.

    Pros

    Great working environment and people here are so much motivated. The leadership is great too. You will always find yourself doing something new everyday. Even though some of the employees are part-time the university treats them as them equally and that satisfies lot.

    Cons

    University should give raise to part-time employees.

    Pros

    Campus is small and people are friendly in general, as in ready to strike a conversation with you any time. The cost of living is low around the campus too.

    Cons

    Because of past and recent (and also on-going) budget cuts, they have been cutting funding/pay for all graduate students, both masters and PhDs.
    Now, offering them a low funding is one thing but what started happening was that they would recruit grad students on the promise of full assistantship when in fact the college is going to fund them for only ONE YEAR and then it'll be up to the student's professor/advisor to pay the student with his or her grant money thereafter. Not all professors at Tech are even aware of it so they hire students thinking the college will fund them and end up having to let them go to other labs or even transfer to other schools.

    Advice to Management

    These are the dark days with higher education budget cuts in Louisiana but be honest about the pay when you recruit graduate students.
