Pros: connections, build relationships, gain real work knowledge
Cons: minimum wage pay
It depends on the position of your work study, but typically it's easy, fun and a great institution to work for. Most work study positions allow students work and catch up on homework at the same time. It's a fun place to experience what a real work situation consists of all the while building important relationships with teachers and supervisors. I've learned how to balance school and work through my positions at Mansfield University.
