    I have been working at Valencia College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Valencia College employers tend to be more understanding in missing work due to academic reasons. If you got finals week, an exam coming up, or need to change your schedule to fit the course load, they got your back.

    Cons

    If you decide to skip class by chance, you are a little paranoid because you work on campus and a professor can see you.
