It's about what you'd expect
Graduate/Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – Hays County, TX – October 23, 2018
Teaching at Texas State University as an Instructional Assistant, while convenient, does not pay much and can be a hassle. There is a ton that you must do outside of teaching and office hours (grading/writing quizzes), but the preparation for each class takes little time if you are competent in your field. It's a bit insulting that there is no tuition waiving for student employees, and the payment barely covers one semesters tuition costs, let alone rent and bills. This is definitely not going to support you, but will be a convenient solution for some people to cover tuition costs.
Low wage, time consuming
