    I worked at Iowa State University part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I loved the flexibility of the university and the free reign to design your sessions as you see fit. I felt very well compensated for the work and felt ISU was very reliable.

    Cons

    It takes a while for them to pay you at the beginning of each semester, so you usually go a month without a paycheck, which, depending on your situation, is difficult.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Iowa State University (Ames, IA) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Submission of current class schedule and resume/cover letter along with current transcript. After submission, I waited about a week to hear back for an interview. An interview date was set up. I went to the interview and was asked questions about my academic experience and then shown around the lab as well as the green house. I was then told there were more prospective interviews. A few days later i got an email saying i got the job!
