    Pros

    You should enroll in workstudy if:
    -You don't necessarily need to make more money
    -Your schedule is not normal for a different off-campus part-time job
    -You would really prefer some experience working on-campus
    -You can see yourself working on-campus for most academic years
    -You are involved, and want to stay involved more
    -Work on your homework or other projects and it would be OK

    Cons

    -You can only have less than 19 hours per 2 weeks
    -Hours may vary, I've had 3 hours some paychecks; hours not guaranteed
    -Not much to do on the job; can get boring
    -Student training is mandatory, and can be inconvenient times

    Management too old-school in style. Everything is top-down. No flexibility in work hours even though University posts on website that it encourages telecommuting.
