    Current Employee - Summer University Tutor in Munich (Germany)
    Current Employee - Summer University Tutor in Munich (Germany)

    I have been working at Technical University of Munich part-time

    Pros

    - Really flexible work times: At the beginning of each program, each tutor was able to "volunteer" for whatever activity they wanted to participate in
    - Really nice employees
    - Getting to know excellent international students from all over the world. I really appreciated the intercultural exchange.
    - Going on trips and getting paid for it (Neuschwanstein, BWM Museum, etc.)
    - The work counts as "Voluntary work", which means that the salary won't be counted to the 8000€ limit that students have.

    Cons

    Really no cons. Of course you get paid for a reason, taking 20-30 students on a trip can be tiring, even if they are all adults. Sometimes students get "lost".

    Great location and facilities, really motivated people (especially PhD students) . Good attitude of the people from chemical laboratories and technical staff. The most of technical staff does"t speak English.
