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

    Pros

    I am a student at UCA and I work part-time as a tutor for the Center for Writing and Communication. Working here has been great, especially as a full-time student. The pay is fair, and the center directors are kind and helpful.

    Cons

    The only bad thing is that you aren't able to work over most of the breaks, so it's helpful to either save your money or pickup a seasonal job during the winter and spring for extra cash during these times.

    Advice to Management

    The only advice I have is to keep it up. Their values are clear and followed, they treat employees fairly, and strive to help their students the most that they can.

    Pros

    I thoroughly enjoyed working as a student worker at UCA. Keep in mind, though, that this was a federal work study position. This job allowed me to work during school and was never too much stress. The people I worked with are wonderful and I still keep in touch with them today.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    None.

    There are not a lot of down sides to working here. It sucks taking classes simultaneously but the pay is fair.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. It works and it gets students places. Remove Gen Eds to allow students to more of what they love

    Pros

    I've been working as an intern at the UCA Counseling Center for the past 3 months. It's a spectacular learning environment with the most talented staff and mentors I could possibly imagine.

    Cons

    While this is a paid internship, it is a very LOW paying internship. Despite the wage being so low, it's still the best experience to complete my education.
