    Former Employee - Graduate Student Assistant in Lynchburg, VA

    I worked at Liberty University full-time

    Pros

    The pay was helpful for bills and especially for the tuition. The payment they gave covered the cost of tuition, and you got a monthly stipend of about $816 (it was $800+ a month) to cover other personal expenses. They also allowed you to gain a teaching certificate at the end, which was optional but a great bonus. The GSA staff are very helpful and encouraging as well a the teachers. if you do need help there is always someone there to help you. Even as a regular student, the experience is good and you learn more than you had hoped to expect.

    Cons

    The balance of being a GSA and a grad student was challenging. To maintain your GSA position, you had to keep high grades as a student. Your goal is to maintain a B average. However, this was difficult as the workload for both was challenging, and each required dedicated time for both. Over time, you will gain a workable flow, but it was still tricky as for some weeks, you would have 20 hrs of GSA work and others, especially exams, you could have about 60 hrs of work and still have to maintain good grades. I am not saying that is NOT worth the opportunity, but do you know your workload balance. Also, they are very picky for who they want to teach their students.

    I worked at Liberty University full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Made the most I have made at a job so far. I was able to finish my Bachelor's degree without going into further debt.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations of staff, management, and directors. There was barely any communication as to why the expectations were the way that they were except that they "help the students". We read from a script and helped to answer student's questions, but the confusing bureaucracy made it difficult to excel at being "helpful" consistently. Managers were instructed to be overly critical of staff members in order to drive fear and ownership, even though there was very little that was in the staff member's control. In addition, opportunities to be promoted were mainly based off of personality and not work expertise, meaning a staff member could get promoted because they were friends with management, even if there was a more qualified candidate and it would be justified by the directors.
