Mediocre place to work. Really Depends on what department you're employed in.
Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA) (Current Employee) – Tuscaloosa, AL – October 4, 2017
As a graduate student working as a graduate teaching assistant for the University of Alabama, there aren't very many perks. Graduate teaching assistants are usually overworked and do not receive great benefits. There is no vacation allowance, as it all depends on the department you're a teaching assistant in. Overall, it isn't the greatest school to work at as a graduate assistant. However, that could be attributed to the fact that graduate students are generally treated as servants no matter what university they are at.
