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

    Pros

    Working as a work study at Northeastern University is a great opportunity as a student. You can almost pick your hours to work around your class and life schedule, the work is generally fairly relaxed, and you can often even use your work study funding to get paid while doing research with a professor; gaining valuable experience while getting paid too.

    Cons

    You need to acquire work study funding, which is need based by FAFSA, to get many jobs on campus and especially if you want to get paid while doing research.

    Advice to Management

    Keep killing it

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

    Pros

    Easiest job I've ever had. You basically get paid to go to class and take notes. And you are compensated generously for it. I especially like that the DRC rewards returning notetakers by bumping up their hourly salary by $0.50 or so.

    Cons

    You have to go to class every day because someone who isn't able to take their own notes is depending on you.

    Expensive and being middle of city makes it really difficult for the students in terms of accommodation.

    They are good but if they can provide aid to the international community that would be great.
