    Current Employee - Student Research Assistant in Saint Louis, MO

    I have been working at Saint Louis University part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I was a student research assistant, and it was great that I could earn some money at a job that was so close and that had such flexibility in terms of hours.

    Cons

    There really were no cons...it was only $10/hr., but I did not really expect much more.

    I have been working at Saint Louis University

    Pros

    Great school with lots of helpful teachers. Work load is reasonable and you are the sole instructor of your courses from the get go. The students are good for the most part.

    Cons

    Very little prep work, so the first term can be rough. Some of the lower level students just do not care or try hard.

  11.  

    Nice place to work.

    I worked at Saint Louis University as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    It is a nice place to work. Nice people, flexible schedule, peers are friendly, interesting projects. I would recommend others to participate.

    Cons

    It would be great if some of mentors were a bit more supportive to the students in regard to the projects assigned. Besides that, all good.
