    I worked at University of Texas at Arlington part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked as a Graduate Teaching Assistant, and I loved it. I was given important responsibilities. I had some teaching opportunities, and the professors I was a TA for were willing to help.

    Cons

    The pay isn't great for a part-time position. It's more about doing it because you love it and just getting a little extra money. Definitely not enough to sustain yourself.
