    I have been working at University of Arizona part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I really enjoyed being a student worker here. They're typically very flexible with your school schedule and understand that academics come first.

    Cons

    You're not paid very well. Technically, since it's a state institution they don't need to adhere to the new minimum wage so you earn below that as a student worker.
