    Pros

    You learn how to do research well. The staff are very relatable and the workload is steady but not overwhelming. It is a relational job that usually allows you to meet people's needs. They have a supporting and caring culture, and pay well for an on-campus job.

    Cons

    There are few positions so it's hard to get hired. This position often can have inconvenient hours. The future of the pay system for students is in question; they might drop to minimum wage. Expectations are likely to shift concerning various aspects of work activities on a regular basis.

    Advice to Management

    The management do a great job of caring for the students and being both friendly and attentive to what we need. They should keep it up.
