    I worked at Florida State University part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I was able to set my own schedule and build close relationships with the instructors whose classes I modeled for. My input hours of working were double checked, which saved me from under-representing my hours worked. Everyone in the department are kind and non-judgmental.

    Cons

    I wish i could have worked there longer, but I had to graduate.

    Advice to Management

    Create a booklet of figure model tips for starting out.
