    Current Employee - Graduate Assistant in Rock Hill, SC

    I have been working at Winthrop University as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Little work. Only requires about 10 hours of work a week. There is very little prep work prior to lab. During lab ga's are only responsible for supporting the adjunct that is leading the lab.

    Cons

    Little pay. The assistantship grants either 4.5 hours or 9 hours of tuition credit and $1800 per semester. There is no difference in expectations for those receiving 1/2 and full assistantships

    I have been working at Winthrop University full-time for more than 3 years

    great environment, great colleagues, amazing students. I've enjoyed my time working here. I've found challenges and found rewarding opportunities in my position. I feel fortunate to have served my students and have grown as a result of my experience on campus.

    Pros

    They work with your schedule.It's also very convenient especially if you live on campus. If you want a job that works with your schedule, then this is the job for you.

    Cons

    You don't get paid that much.most of the on-campus jobs are minimum wage or a little bit more depending on which department you work in. You don't do much either so it's a very easy job. The only time it will get busy is if the students are checking in or checking out of their rooms during the break, but that's the only time where it'll be busy. Other than that, you'll have students wanting to put work requests in for their rooms to get fixed and that's it.overall, the job is mostly boring but it's ok though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase the pay for the on-campus jobs

    Doesn't Recommend

    I have been working at Winthrop University

    Pros

    People are passionate, the location and campus are beautiful. Students and staff are generally interesting people who are fun and easy to work with.

    Cons

    Being state-supported in South Carolina, the pay and job security aren't that great for many positions. State-mandated furlough days are a scary and realistic possibility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget the basics of what makes the university great...the administration seemed to be more concerned about raising funds (and administrator salaries) that delivering high-quality education and cultural experiences.
