      Pros

      Always room to grow, people always willing to help. A great community that has the drive to make the world a better place. Grad assistants can get their tuition paid for as well as a stipend.

      Cons

      Time management, long hours, no perks for undergrads. Scheduling can sometimes be an issue due to classes, but for the most part management is easy to work with around your class schedule.

      Pros

      Your bosses and fellow employees are all students, except for the building management, so it is very easy to quickly learn and get comfortable with what is expected of you. An enjoyable place to be especially with all the opportunities to work unique events along with the traditional games that have always been held there.

      Cons

      No real problems besides some of the positions for the shifts require long hours of standing in one position.
