    I worked at Polytechnic Institute of NYU part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's a very easy job. Just assistant the professor in the midterm or final exam.
    You can choose if attend specific exam

    Cons

    The salary is low, but it's totally worth.
    Sometimes there would be a conflict because you have to attend your own exam.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe they can slightly increase the salary. And schedule well in case there are conflicts between the job and our owner exams.
