Pros

Flexibility - half of the work (such as grading and reporting) can be done on your own time. Which ever class you TA for, you end up learning a lot without homework and tests.

Cons

Budgets sometimes don't allow for you to get paid for the time you put in. The University prefers to hire people who have financial aid paying for work time.

Advice to Management

Make sure you hire someone that is knowledgeable with D2L and spreadsheet systems such as Microsoft Excel. Also- students don't usually visit office hours so you can save money by not having your TA's do office hours outside of finals week.

    reconsider some of the people you hire, and make sure that they are mature enough to handle the position, and not just being the center of attention....

    I worked at St. Cloud State University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They are inclusive and understanding of all student workers.

    Cons

    Rules that we were told to follow didn't always make sense.

    Advice to Management

    Take feedback from employees and then actually follow up on it. There were many pointless rules that were kept in place because they wanted to keep authority and not be questioned.
