    I worked at University of Arizona full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    My time working 2 jobs as a student was excellent. I feel like I grew as an employee at the same time as becoming a better student, and now the skills I've gained are helping me when applying to large tech companies.

    Cons

    There is a very small cap on the amount of money a student can make, so sometimes I would work 40-50 hr weeks and get paid for half of that.

    I worked at University of Arizona part-time

    Pros

    A variety of student worker positions are available in all facets of the campus from service industries to paid research positions. Supervisors at all three positions I had as a student knew the limitations of a student schedule and allowed flexible hours for part time work. Compensation is fair, typically above the local minimum wage with opportunities for raises and even promotion into student-management positions.

    Cons

    Students in university jobs are capped out at 25 hours a week while taking classes, which can limit pay for part-time students preferring full-time work rather than the other way around
