    It covered my tuition, but I still had to take out substantial loans to pay the rest of the school fees.

    I worked at Georgia Southern University part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed the freedom of being able to be a teaching assistant and really being able to teach the class. The professors were allowing us to teach the material as we seemed fit as long as we covered the material needed.

    Cons

    Pay could have been better. And they have to limit your hours so you can't be considered full time as a student.

    I worked at Georgia Southern University part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Laid back environment at times
    EASY WORK, EASY MONEY
    The full time custodian workers are cool to work with and let you do your own thing

    If you want a job that pays 8.50 /hr for 16-24 hours a week while taking classes then I'd suggest this job. It's easy money with a laid back weekend shift. However the week shift is a different story.

    Cons

    The supervisors are REALLY strict
    On your feet for the entire shift (unless you hide in a closet)
    The management and other higher ups don't really show you respect because you're a student

    Since the shift for student workers is weekend only don't expect to party all weekend. The shift schedule is 8am-5pm. At 8:01 you're late. They're really strict with the clock in and out times. Another downside is that you're expected to clean the ENTIRE shift even after you've cleaned the building, which can be done in 2-3 hours. So basically, you have to pantomime cleaning in front of the cameras so that you don't get in trouble.
