    Former Employee - Student Worker in Norman, OK

    I worked at University of Oklahoma part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I had a really simple job working in OU's office of admissions for the Student Worker Action Team. The pay was minimum wage, but the hours worked well with my schedule. I liked the relaxed atmosphere and how nice everyone was.

    Cons

    As a student who took classes during the day, I wasn't able to work that many hours, so I didn't earn that much money. It would be a great gig for someone who takes mostly evening classes. Also the work was a bit dull sometimes, but I was able to listen to NPR or the radio, so that wasn't even all that bad.

    Current Employee - Graduate Teaching Assistant in Norman, OK

    I have been working at University of Oklahoma part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Working in an academic environment that provides as much education outside the classroom as inside the classroom; I was allowed to learn from the professors as both teachers in the classroom for schoolwork and as mentors throughout the GA position.

    Cons

    Although the position requires the upkeep of good grades, there are frequent urgent requests from professors for the job which conflicted with school work.

    Pros

    University Environment
    Plenty of Training possibilities

    Plenty of Opportunities to continue studying at the University of Oklahoma
    Most positions are very sociable

    Cons

    Maybe no cons. Perhaps the only cons is the fact you have to buy the parking permit as faculty/staff if you want to park on campus.
