    StarStarStarStarStar Former Graduate Teaching Assistant in Portland, Oregon

    You work as a student so it is an on-campus work. Don't expect to have a full benefits package. You can leave the job any time you want. There is no commitment to the professor.

    No real benefits offered to GRAs

    Great perks. But in exchange for great perks like discounted degree programs and classes, employees are paid much less than others in their fields.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Swim Instructor in Portland, Oregon

    If you a high school or college student just working as a swim instructor or lifeguard, I'm not even sure that you get any benefits. We were never informed of any and if you did want to find out, you'd have to go digging.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Adjunct Professor in Portland, Oregon

    There are few. As an adjunct, you get little to nothing.

    Great retirement plan, part of PERS. For Unclassified employees, you get over 40 paid days off a year between PTO, vacation, and holidays. The problem is they use the great benefits as an excuse to not pay you as well as the private market.

    The benefits are pretty extensive. They waive nearly 70% of tuition fees for employees who want to study at the university during their employment. The tuition benefit can also be shared with dependents and spouses.

    Very comprehensive benefits package: health, retirement and pension plan, disability etc. Full coverage for family for negligible extra cost
