    Purdue provides pretty holistic health insurance packages. The options you have to choose from are pretty robust and can provide coverage for your spouse and children. The vacation time and time off is the next best thing.

    The salary is not much but since it is an on campus job the benefit is good. Insurance is relatively cheap

    You can change your benefits every semester, which I found helpful! They are pretty inexpensive and have a variety of plans to choose from. Also, my dentist said my dental plan was one of the best around! Usually graduate students are "1/2" time, which equals to 20 hours of work a week and you qualify for Purdue's benefit packages. Purdue routinely hires graduate students at "1/4" time (10 hours / week) and you don't qualify for benefits. This can leave grad students without insurance and 1/4 time pays so little that there is no way people can afford independent health insurance. I would encourage Purdue to fully fund students so they qualify for benefits.

    Since I am a part-timer, I do not get 401k, vacation and time off.

    This was only part time job meant for undergraduate university students and this did not really include any extra perks or benefits as expected from a conventional job.
