I worked at Illinois Interactive Report Card part-time (More than a year)
The position is ideal for any full time student. The hours were flexible but always available. They were very understanding about needing time to study. The work environment was fun but professional. The management were fun to work with. The daily tasks of a QA tester weren't hard to pick up, even for a non-computer science major.
The building is located off campus and it can be difficult to get to the downtown area from campus in between classes compared to other work studies positions. If you are a student, without a car on campus, and you are familiar with the reliability of the Huskie Bus System, you'll understand that you may have to walk to and from the downtown area. The hours decrease in the summer.
