    I worked at Brigham Young University (BYU) part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Department: Ancient Scripture, Religious Education
    This position was a great learning opportunity as a student. The faculty are ceaselessly helpful in guiding you through the required research. They are understanding of your time constraints as a student, and want you to be successful. The professor I mainly worked under ended up being a personal mentor to me as I went through my college years.

    Cons

    The only downside to this job is that the pay for research assistants in Ancient Scripture is not very high. I saw my compensation in terms of learning opportunities, but if you are looking for a high-paying campus job, this may not be a good fit for you.
