    I worked at University of Nevada Las Vegas (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Was easily able to work around my class schedule and student organizations that I was apart of. The work as a teacher assistant was not complex or overwhelming, only required that the proper amount of time was committed to the days class were taught.

    Cons

    I took an excessive amount of time, >10 weeks for the university to properly process my into the HR system, Workday, so that I was able to log hours and get payed. All while waiting for my information to be processed through the multiple channels to become an official employee I was scrapping for cash to stay afloat.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to get employees into Workday quicker.
