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

    Pros

    Working in a student job on campus provides flexible hours and steady pay for steady work. In addition, the majority of faculty on campus are very nice and helpful.

    Cons

    Being a student job, it can be stressful at times to balance work and school. Some on-campus jobs require students to work at specific times which might not work on some days given the variability in a student's daily schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Management could be more open to student input on job processes, as students are more often than not the first line of response or interaction with current/potential students
