    I worked at University of South Alabama

    Pros

    Flexible around school schedule. Depending on which department you work for, the staff are really friendly. You never work over 20 hours which means you will not be overloaded with work.

    Cons

    You can only work up to 20 hours a week which is not bad unless you are trying to make more money. It's an appropriate job for a student who just needs to make a little money but not have it be a burden on your school work.

    "Trade cheap labor for a degree"

    Former Employee - Graduate Research Assistant in Mobile, AL
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at University of South Alabama part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Being a graduate assistant generally gave me a flexible work schedule. It also included tuition remission.

    Cons

    College of Education graduate assistants make less than other colleges. It's also not enough money to live on, so you'll still end up with loans. I was a PhD student, so I made about $3k more than MA or MS students. Faculty generally show up whenever they want, so keeping a regular schedule was impossible. The "you only work 20 hours" thing was a joke. All of us worked 30+, with no benefits or paid sick leave. In AL, $11k/year for a single person means you make too much for Medicaid, but too little to get Exchange subsidies.
