    I have been working at Georgia Tech part-time

    Pros

    Able to manage your time by having part-time job besides classes

    Cons

    I work at Post Office at Georgia Tech Student Center. Management is fine, fellow workers, specifically the temporary worker, sometimes does not give you the opportunity to grow on by learning to process packages etc. Salary is so low, and most of the time, it is physical labor.

    Advice to Management

    I wish that the temporary workers, not part-time postal office assistant students, were more respectful toward the working part-time students.
