    I worked at Washington University in St. Louis part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked as a work-study student at one of the university's libraries. The library was a very nice place to work, and all the librarians I've worked with are delightful and kind people. The hours are fairly flexible, and I worked at one of the smaller libraries, so it wasn't very busy.

    Cons

    The pay was very low (which is pretty much expected for a work study job).
