    I have been working at University of Oregon part-time

    Pros

    Decent pay for the job, hours are very flexible and they work with you to find shifts that work with your class schedule. Bosses have been great and receptive to us.

    Cons

    Sometimes it is tough to get enough hours per week due to other workers having more open schedules and less classes. This is out of my control, though.
