    I have been working at Baylor University full-time

    Pros

    I am working toward my PhD, and they agreed to cover the cost of my tuition while still paying me a small salary. I get great health insurance (BCBS) and only
    Pay $200/year Which is fantastic. The staff are also really nice

    Cons

    Low salary (while in school)
    No public transport
    Free parking pass, but no parking unless you get there super early
    They only pay stipends monthly

    Pros

    Lots of fun! You get to meet the new freshmen, and they pay for all your room and board while camp is in session. You also develop a really close bond with the other staff members.

    Cons

    You will get almost no sleep. You get paid minimum wage. But on the flip side, you are working about 90 hours/week, so you'll still make a nice chunk of cash. You have no life outside of camp, but camp is fun, so you should enjoy it.

    Advice to Management

    Warn applicants that they will get no sleep. Other than that, keep doing what you're doing!
