    I worked at Carleton University part-time

    Pros

    good communication between professors and TAs, good experience and good pay for that level of employment

    Cons

    Work all comes at the end of the year so you weekly hours are not actually weekly, they all come in a block at the end of term.

    Advice to Management

    get feedback on specific profs at the end of term--some profs are not good to their TAs
