    I have been working at San José State University part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Flexibility with time. The time availability is highly negotiable.

    Cons

    - 40-hour limit imposed on all students working part-time. As a teaching assistant, my professor needed more hours from me to properly assist him. His request was rejected, and I am currently working more hours than I am actually paid for.

    Advice to Management

    Please focus on the quality of the education as an institution for knowledge.
