    I worked at University of South Carolina part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    On-campus networking. Often time for homework while getting paid. Convenient location if you're a student. Easier to get involved. Meet classmates and make new friends. Find out more about the operation of the institution you're paying for an education. Plenty more!

    Cons

    The pay is not the greatest considering that you are essentially cheap labor for most positions. It can also distract from your studies if you aren't careful.


  2. "Student-Friendly Work"

    Pros

    As a supervisor of the new Wellness Center at the Upstate Campus as well as a student, there are some obvious benefits to working for the same university that I attend. When making my work schedule, the University is very willing to work around my class schedule and give me ample time to study as well. The director of the Wellness Center allows student staff to study for their classes when they have extra time during their shift. Finally, the responsibility and experience I've gained while working here will be invaluable in my future career.

    Cons

    First of all, the hourly wage is not especially high, and the number of hours you get to work is usually very low, around six to nine hours per week. The work can also get to be pretty boring when there is nothing happening, although the staff is allowed to use personal laptops and study for classes. In my opinion, the pros outweigh the cons.

    Advice to Management

    Ask the staff for their opinion on the policy and procedures. Inform the staff about what is going on around the Wellness Center through email
