      Great Work Study program

      Oct 28, 2021 - Student Office Assistant in Atlanta, GA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Very flexible to your schedule as a student, you just have to be open to communicating those matters with your supervisor.

      Cons

      Pay is low but I guess because it comes from a work-study grant, that's probably the reason. It would be ideal to start working as soon as the semester gets started so you can work and earn your full amount of your WS grant.
