Just a teaching assistant.
Teaching Assistant (Former Employee), Mount Pleasant, MIApril 10, 2013
I was just a student taking credit as a teaching assistant, so I did not get paid. I like the psychology department because it is diverse and you are pretty much guaranteed to find someone you will like.

It's great earning money while studying. It's five hours a week and doesn't take away significantly from study time.

Custodial Maintenance (Former Employee), Mount Pleasant, MIOctober 21, 2012
Pros: medical accidents on job covered, flexibility of hours
Cons: no benefits or perks, seasonal work
A typical day of cleaning a unit was making sure kitchen appliances looked new after cleaning, making sure all window were clean and sills were free of any and all debris, cleaning all light fixtures, banisters, carpets, and bathroom fixtures. All floors had to be stripped, waxed and buffed at the end of the cleaning process. Each unit took approximately – more... 16 hours with the drying of the floors included. You worked alone on this job which was nice, but the hardest part of the job was cleaning up after someone totally destroyed the place and left garbage all over to be picked up. The most enjoyable part of the job was that you cleaned when your schedule permitted availability. Management was very good and supplied with all materials and body gear needed to complete job. – less

Depends on your mgr
Library Student Worker (Former Employee), Mount Pleasant, MIOctober 2, 2012
This can be a difficult place to work. Lots of unrest between those running the day-to-day operations and the higher-ups. Managers have been known to stab people in the back. If you get a good manager, it can make this place the best experience you've ever had. Get a CYA manager and you might want to look for a different job.
