    I have been working at NYU (New York University) part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I get paid well, at least when compared to many of my friends working for other departments. But at the same time, there are jobs that don't pay you well.

    Cons

    Not much to learn. You are stuck to your job list and that is it. Like any other MNC, you do not get to explore and learn all that you are interested in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please take advantage of all the talent you have in your student assistants. We get to learn and you get your job done.

    I worked at NYU (New York University) part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Training is largely unnecessary. There literally isn't any need for it because almost anything you will do will be based off of common sense. Its a great way to get paid without doing anything :)

    Cons

    The management can either be demanding or really laid back. More of an in between would be perfect, however, I don't think such a thing exists.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try not to take the job too seriously. Students who plan on working at Coles aren't trying to dedicate their entire lives to a sports facility. They are trying to establish themselves academically and that means that sometimes students will have to be given some time off.
