    I have been working at The College of New Jersey full-time

    Pros

    The management at the College of New Jersey is great! It allows you to really understand and develop your skill so that you are able to grow.

    Cons

    The amount of work sometimes is lacking, causing you to feel that you are not making important strides or that you may be over-qualified for the position you currently have.

    Advice to Management

    Not much! Management is one of the best set of people I've had for my employer regardless of where I've worked.

    I have been working at The College of New Jersey part-time

    Pros

    student employee that assisted in lab prep and teaching lab material to students. Not very stressful and minimal hours (which is what I wanted).

    Cons

    Job was level 1 so it was minimum wage, and not a long term position. Although I will be moving on from this job, there is not much to complain about. However, they are making the position unpaid next semester.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the job paid and have more hands on lab prep experience. I enjoyed my time as a course assistant and learned a lot.

    Pros

    Tutored kids in the classes I took, generally with the same professor. Gratitude received for helping was nice. Flexible hours, since you decide your hours and tutees are matched up with similar timings.

    Cons

    Low pay, lot of paperwork instead of switching to an online system.

    Advice to Management

    Switch to an online logging system.
