Amazing Experience
STUDENT RESEARCH ASSISTANT (Former Employee), Moscow, IDMarch 4, 2014
Pros: working outside, great staff, and a brilliant educational experience.
Cons: not guaranteed to go past graduation date, medical benefits, and couldn't exceed ten hours a week during the school year because of budget constraints.
Working for amazing faculty in conducting field research trials was the most valuable experience I had while in college. In the summer's I would work 40 hours a week outside taking data, setting up trials and taking samples or I would be in the office on a rainy day compiling all of the data that we had on hand and doing miscellaneous laboratory experiments – more... with the samples we collected in the field. I was the only girl among three male coworkers and two male graduate students. By no means was I spoiled, I was just one of the guys which was perfect. The best part about this job was being outside the majority of the time, the people that I worked with, and the information that I learned throughout my time here. – less

Well run math lab
Algebra and Trigonometry Tutor (Former Employee), Moscow, IDApril 25, 2013
Much of the lower level math classes was taught online. This allowed the math department to focus its expensive resources on higher level classes and research. They hire students to tutor the students in these partially online classes. That way there are real people to discuss the problems and problem solving techniques with.

I learned quite a bit – more... about verbal technical communication during my work at the U of I. Additionally, the job helped me learn how to deal with a people from an incredibly diverse background. – less

The professors can get away with treating their student like garbage at this university. If you are considering being a student here I would suggest getting a full time job and finishing your graduate degree on the side.
